Vancouver's Fortune Sound Club is a bonafide local legend for its world-class music programming, custom-design sound system and iconic location in historic Chinatown, but its also been dipping its toes into the streetwear game over the past few years with pleasing results. After its succesful capsule collection with OBEY last year, Fortune Sound has now tapped California-based lifestyle brand ROARK their first collaborative collection, launching tomorrow—Thursday, January 17—exclusively at Fortune Sound.
This collaborative capsule features custom pullover hoodies and long sleeve tees with whimsical graphics down the sleeves that riff on Fortune Sound's history, including dumplings, noodle bowls and dragons. Along with the collection release, Timebomb Trading, Roark and Fortune will be hosting the Official KnowShow Party featuring dumplings by Dickson Li, photos by Jamie Thomas & Jeff Keenan, art by Stacy Gabriel and more. The pop-up party will take place on Fortune's Sound middle floor, the Project Space, starting at 9:00pm PST.
The lookbook images are also a family affair, shot by Timebomb employee Paige McBride and modeled by Roark team rider Stacy Gabriel and Fortune Staff members Will Savage, Ian Kim and Ester Tothova. Take a peek at the collection in the images below and if you want your chance at owning a piece, hopefully you're either in Vancouver or can call in a favour to your on-the-ground plug.
