Mister Freedom

I don’t know where to start! The Mister. Freedom is certainly one of the shops most fantastic in the world. Inside you can find thematic collections of Mister Freedom, customization of vintage, and a file that is unimaginable of the vintage original. On the second floor of the shed is a workshop and office where you create and make some parts.

Mister Freedom

I arrived in Los Angeles, threw my things in the hotel, and go out to enjoy my free day before the Inspiration begin. The first stop was the Mister. Freedom, and along with me came the Portuguese Filipe and actor Milo Ventimiglia. The two of boots, and those jeans with raw and ai rolled a kind of “secret handshake” and engatamos in a few hours of chat about the jeans, boots, motorcycles, photography, travel, the good time to visit Brazil, and the celebrities of today make when personal stylists go on vacation.

The coolest of shops of the niche in the United States is that the position of the seller is treated very differently than the profession in Brazil. The guys need to breathe what they sell and share the life style of the brand, without discussion, only taste. I took the opportunity to pick up tips that I used to line the stomach as soon as I left and then during the road trip the PCH, we talk about everything or little, and I spent a real shock therapy that prepared me for what was to come.

The space, the organization, and the products are all unique and although you have already seen the photos online I was not prepared for the amount of information. What fascinated me from the beginning in the Mister Freedom was the site with amazing stories on the blog powered by owner Christophe Loiron. He had a life very rich, full of experiences and stories that you do not purchase and or acquire on The internet (Christophe is French, was created in Africa, and moved to California at 24 years old after serving in the French navy). This knowledge, the passion for the vintage, and the lightness of one who considers himself an “expert in nothing” are reflected perfectly in the icing on the cake that is the profile in Instagramthat represents what seems to be the essence of the brand and shop: create, have fun and enjoy life.

The place is at the same time confused and cozy. The shop is filled with clothes and objects vintage various categories, eras, and origins, from shirts Savile Row, even pants of the French Revolution. Your imagination will work very hard to try to guess the history of these clothes and think of how they can be part of your story and your reality.You will see the captain of the seas, Jack Sparrow, or a Cry Baby, or the Public Enemy Number 1 (the characters of Johnny Depp, big client), and do not be surprised if you have a feeling that you’ve seen something in theaters… the shop is famous for being the point of reference (purchase and rental) for stylists and costume designers.

Who does not enjoy will find that it is an episode of hoarders, but those who like will find amazing this shed, brick built in the 1930’s housing stock is immense with clothes until 1850, fabrics, books, and objects. The magic shop is in this mess organized, full of treasures where you circulates like a real hunter of relics. It is a mess on purpose, they told me, which somehow replicates the feeling of years and years of prospecting sites and I liked it too much to be in this hunt.

And the collections of the Mister Freedom? Gets to be hard to know what is new and what is old, although there is a certain division which is the oldest organized in araras, in the back of the store. This is because the collections of Mister Freedom seem to clothes that are there on the shelf for 40 years, thanks to cuts to the fabric without washing, and all the details of modeling and construction. Deceiving ourselves if we think that dressing well is to renew the entire wardrobe each season, and the collections of Mr. Freedom are slow and complementary.Many end up disposing quickly of the clothes simply because these parts were bought to the winds of fashion, and soon lose the charm that they had when they were acquired. Or simply because they don’t last very long, by the poor quality of the material, or poor workmanship that the produced. However, it is only with the passing of the years what clothes and shoes really quality acquire the character of their own which gives them their individuality and dignity.Only the clothes well made, purchased, knowingly, will enjoy this characteristics to one day become vintage of the future.

What I find most fun are the stories behind each one, with inspirations, full of cultural stories that do not relate to the “heritage” of the United States. The ideas come from photos, newspapers, magazines, old garments, prospecting sites, and the collections, with themes such as “Living There Revolutión”, “Men of the Frontier” and “Sea Hunt” are made in the United States or in Japan. The products come out of factories with ethical and preferably small since consumer awareness, the responsibility in the manufacturing and the environment appear strong in the message (of fashion so slow that the pendulum is more to the past).It is important to say that in spite of the face of vintage clothes, not replicas of the past. The creations are the fruit of imagination of what could have been a new product that’s sold at the time.

The second floor of the shed is protected by a ladder with signs in the style of “beware of dog”. Up there are the computers, responding to customers and working the store online. In another corner of this second floor are still more old things, a kind of collection, or any other special references of the time because it is a table right there that the Christophe ball modeling and even print some t-shirts, and makes small customizations.The packaging is amazing and the whole detail of the product has a “twist” carinhoso, such as patches for jeans marked with a hot iron, the buttons corozo nut painted natural indigo, all done right there or in the yard. I was happy to find out that what I see on Instagram happens in the store, and that the person poses giving flying is just the same, good-humored and helpful.

This store has layers and layers of findings, and historical details that have gained new life within a new context thanks to the look of a person. It is a place for you to spend time, to look with calm, search, have fun inquiring about the historical context of something, or simply admire the quality and beauty. It is an environment where they are experts at telling stories and in presenting elements for you to put your imagination to work.Mister Freedom shows that the past does not have to be static, that clothes should be fun and that you buy what you want can be a pleasant experience. The texts on the blog are rich in history and education about the impacts caused by the industry, but always with good humor and jokes. Stores and brands are trying everything to sell and the times taking everything very seriously, forcing the bar in the name of a picture, but the Mister Freedom is there to remind you that men’s fashion is to be fun!
