Alec Monopoly x Forever 21: Art & Style

The Mannequin Party by Gino R Campodonico - Alec Monopoly F21 Sept 2015 1

The Mannequin Party has been a fan of LA-based graffiti artist Alec Monopoly for a couple of years now. We have admired his murals in Los Angeles and also checked out his exhibition during Art Basel Miami Beach 2014, which included other highlights such as the SLS Hotel facade takeover, a decorated double-decker bus and luxury cars.

We’re drawn to Alec’s urban take on pop art and as lovers of Saturday morning cartoons and celebrity culture, we’re particularly infatuated with his renditions of Monopoly, Richie Rich, Twiggy, Jack Nicholson, Michael Jackson and Madonna.

Cut to his current collaboration with retail giant Forever 21. The limited men’s and women’s collection features the artist’s favorite muses like Richie Rich and Casper The Friendly Ghost. Items vary from hoodies, sweatshirts, long tees, tote bags, notebooks and more.

Long tees are a go-to for me as of late so this gold number was one of my faves from the collection.

Alec Monopoly x Forever 21 Richie Rich Bomber Jacket

My number one number pick was the this varsity bomber with patches of Richie Rich, dollar bills and $$$ signs. It is considered a women’s item so I picked up a large. F gender labels…If you love it, wear it and wear it with confidence.

I also took the opportunity to take my new pair of Chuck Taylor All Star II for a walk around Wynwood. I cannot tell how much I love these kicks. Chucks have been a staple in my closet since forever, but this improved model is incredible. Yes, the use of premium canvas and suede lining is nice, but the cushiony sock-liner is the real deal. Literally walking on air.

Richie Rich is a bae.

How cute is this canvas bag? I’m using it as a phone pouch for my big ass iPhone 6 Plus.
