Last week legendary French duo Daft Punk announced their first ever pop-up shop in Los Angeles.
The announcement came just a few days before their highly anticipated Grammys performance with The Weeknd.
Daft Punk has caused quite a stir amongst fans and the musical world as they have only toured twice – once for ALIVE 1997 and again for ALIVE 2007.
Since that time, the duo has performed only once and it was for the 2014 Grammys, where they shared the stage with Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, and Nile Rodgers for their infamous song “Get Lucky”.
Now, they have graced us with the opportunity to purchase some of their memorabilia. Including the most sought after gift of them all – the helmet!
The pop-up shop is located at 8818 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood right across the street from Maxfield (main store).
According to GQ, here are some of the exciting things one can expect to find at the retro-futuristic archival pop-up shop:
“Choices range from logo adorned towels and frisbees, to several shelves of collectible figures from Medicom toys, to patch-covered denim jackets and reversible windbreakers made in partnership with K-Way. Daft Punk also teamed with a few rising designers for limited edition items that will be sold exclusively at the pop-up, including sweatshirt overalls in orange and black from Gosha Rubchinskiy and a graphic T-shirt from Virgil Abloh’s Off-White that pays tribute to Darlin’, the rock band that preceded Daft Punk. There are also special items created by Maxfield and Daft Punk for the pop-up, like a $2500 glossy, all-black skateboard cruiser.”
If that’s not exciting enough, the opening night of the pop-up drew in a number of guest appearances from celebrities like Ciara, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Travis Barker, and the man himself Abel Tesafaye a.k.a The Weeknd.
Lucky attendees also got a chance to catch surprise performances by Skrillex, Mija and music pioneer Todd Edwards.
It’s not too late to make a quick stop at the pop-up as it will be open until Sunday, February 19th. If you can’t make it, here’s a clip for your viewing pleasures, courtesy of Daft Punk.
