Given the opportunity by venerable Los Angeles retailer American Rag Cie to have a full window display on La Brea Ave., jeffstaple and Staple Design made sure to do something different. Sticking to a timeline concept, jeffstaple created a display showcasing the best of Staple Designs collaborative products and special projects. Spanning 16 years, the timeline features several notable products including the Staple Design x Nike “Pigeon” Dunks and the Staple Design x Beats by Dre collection. While in town to put up the display, jeffstaple was on hand to share his thoughts on Staple Design’s first major window display as well as all the special products through the years.

A selection of opening lines is showcased in this communal video valentine.
