This past Friday I was invited to an event in Harlem for Custom-made apparel company ‘5001 flavors’ clothing boutique, Harlem Haberdashery for the launch of their spectacular Eyewear collection. If you don’t know 5001 flavors, they design chic custom clothing for some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment. You know my focus is sports, and 5001 flavors have worked with pro athletes such as Lebron James, Kobe Bryant,Kerry Rhodes, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony just to name a few. That’s a pretty impressive list.
As soon as I walked into their boutique, I was impressed by the decor, it was beautiful, very modernistic, but still had an old school feel as vintage black & white photos of African American Luminary’s hung on the walls throughout the shop. The spot filled up pretty quickly as the event got underway, there was nothing but positive energy in the air, I felt very relaxed as I chatted with various guests(designers, PR’s, media, etc.) through the evening. Of course I made sure to test out some of their newly released shades ,which were a collaborated enterprise with Rebello Eyewear, made in France. I loved the style of the frames and its lightweight feature, which made them comfortable to wear for long periods. I would definitely recommend these shades to anyone who has a strong affinity for their sunglasses. Take a look at photos(By Mike Law) from the event below.
