The 30th anniversary celebration of Union Los Angeles has brought us a ton of collaborations with everyone from Jordan Brand and Fear of God to NOAH and Cactus Plant Flea Market. Before the year ends, we’re treated to another collab, this time between Union and Salehe Bembury’s Spunge.
The two have created a collectible vinyl figure of Union’s Frontman logo in collaboration with FWEN CLUB. Three colorways were created — brown, yellow, and black — each limited to 200 units with each site (Spunge, Union, FWEN CLUB) dropping one of the colorways. These are 8.5″ tall and are designed to be mounted on a wall. The collaboration also includes a Union x Spunge apparel collection consisting of a tee and hoodie. The apparel features a portrait of Sidney Poitier, who played the character of Walter in Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, the inspiration for the Frontman logo.
The Frontman Vinyl Figure is priced at $400 USD and launches on Wednesday, December 8th at 7pm PST on the Union website (yellow), FWENCLUB.com (brown), and beaspunge.com (black). The apparel collection will release on the Union and Spunge website’s at the same time, with a Union LA in-store release for the collection scheduled for Thursday at 11am PST.
