This coming Friday Compound will host Famous Nobodys and Carmelo Anthony for the highly anticipated release of their pop-up collaboration titled "Why I Love Portland." The release party, taking place March 13th, will be a celebration of Portland.
In addition to the release of the collaboration, the launch party, which is taking place from 5pm-9pm, will highlight some of the amazing local businesses that Portland has to offer. Deadstock Coffee will be at the release party offering craft caffeinated beverages, including a custom drink exclusive to the event and a limited series of mugs. Portland's very own Eastside Distillery will also be offering locally themed craft cocktails, and TrapKitchen will be in the building serving up some delectable, made with love, hot plates. Umbrella Screen Printing will also be offering an experiential "customization station" at the launch party where customers will be able to choose from several customization options to create their own piece of Portland. Customization options will include the ability for customers to take a photograph with Melo and then have their photograph heat transferred onto their custom T-shirts.
In addition to the launch itself highlighting what Portland has to offer, the Compound x Famous Nobodys collaboration capsule releasing at the pop-up was designed entirely around the history of Portland. Whether you are passionate about streetwear, a fan of the NBA, looking for good food and drinks, or just somebody that wants to support Portland, this event is made for you.
