HYPEBEAST 5 Year Magazine Anniversary Party
This week marked HYPEBEAST's 5 year anniversary of their printed magazine. In celebration of their 18 printed issues, they hosted an event at a 2 story gallery space in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. At the event, there was music, tequila, and a gallery of all of their 18 issues to date. Industry heads, influencers, and literal hype beasts attended the event, but sadly it reached capacity and had to come to an early end. All in all the event was sick and a good outlet for networking. Congrats HYPEBEAST!

Shane is known for his love for Undercover & Raf Simons, and he sold a bunch of his personal archive through Grailed for some great deals.
