Head over to Five Points and discover Station as your go-to ’90s haven for all things retro, street style and hip-hop inspired fashion. Station focuses on finding items that you won’t find anywhere else from the hyped-up to the hard to find. They also carry vintage Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Polo, local prints, brands and exclusive items from Supreme and Bape. For this season of Denver Fashion Week, the Five Points boutique will showcase their best stuff on the runway on Thursday, November 8 for our streetwear night.
Co-owner, David Bywater, is also a street artist and he wanted to incorporate local art and street art into his store. They knew the power of exclusivity, so they make one of a kind t-shirts that are popular amongst the Denver art community.
“Art and fashion just go hand in hand. In my experience like you make so much cool art and people would be like, ‘I don’t want to pay $400 for this canvas, but hey put it on a shirt,’” Bywater said in an interview with 303 Magazine.
Because Station also buys, sells, and trades vintage finds – it keeps the Denver community included and offers a welcoming atmosphere that people love coming back to. Bywater added, “The vintage stuff is found. We have to go find it at the thrifts, online, Craigslist and a huge network of people in other states dig for us. Stuff can walk in through the door. The high-end hype brands — like Supreme and Bape — that bring people in. We stay on top of new releases that those brands drop and pick things up when they release it.”
Station’s goal is to become a Denver staple. With the help of social media, they’ve already gathered a considerable following. They have bigger dreams of expanding outside of Colorado and creating more partnerships along the way. In the meantime, catch them on the runway on the fifth night of Denver Fashion Week.
