Saturday marked the grand opening of the K1X NYC flagship store in SoHo, located in the old Recon location of Lafayette. The highlight of the event was the exhibition of the “Tonz-O-Gunz K.O.N.Y.” art work by Barron Claiborne, which was released as a limited edition t-shirt – exclusively by Barron Claiborne and K1X.
Acclaimed photographer Barron Claiborne made it an unforgettable night for many, by taking portraits of the guests. Of course, an exclusive portrait by the man who took Biggie’s most iconic (and last!) picture is a bragging right in itself. They added an extra cherry on top, as their visitors got to wear Notorious B.I.G.’s original crown, posing as the “King of New York”.
With DJ Getlive on the decks, sneakerheads, taste makers, media and ballplayers celebrated the arrival of K1X in the Big Apple.
