Designer Chris Stamp is changing the way men dress with his label Stampd, which started as a cult brand in Los Angeles in 2011. The Stampd aesthetic involves layered, streetwear-adjacent looks with sharp tailoring and soft materials, and inspiration drawn from Copenhagen and Tokyo as much as L.A. If all that means nothing to you, peruse the Stampd lookbook images in this post. You’ll get it.
This year, Stamp has been named a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist, making him a competitor in a prestigious battle for emerging designers. Being named a finalist is a massive honor in itself, capable of boosting careers and even pushing brands into the mainstream.
We currently offer Stampd in the men’s designer sections at our Seattle flagship store, as well as in California (South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, Topanga in Canoga Park, The Grove in Los Angeles and Fashion Valley in San Diego) and in Aventura, Florida. We do not sell Stampd online. Visit any of those stores to see what hasn’t sold out yet. And keep in mind you can order any item from any store (like that bomber jacket you see above, for example) through our customer service line: 1.888.282.6060.
So you can get to know him a little better, we caught up with Mr. Stamp on the horn to talk about the Fashion Fund, what he’s working on at the moment, rap music he’s into and the rising menswear power structure in Los Angeles.
