“We’re constantly keeping our eyes and ears on what’s cool and trending, and showcasing different inspiration in this culture,” Kevin Ma, the founder of Hypebeast, told WWD at the official launch party, held in The Landmark’s basement.

“We want to bring the energy of P+F, a brand we always admired and respected, turning that personality into a firsthand experience and space for more people.”

Founded 12 years ago, Hypebeast went public last year and was recently incorporated in the U.K. and U.S.
