WHAT IS LIQUID SKY?

CHLOÉ SEVIGNY, 2008; (star-to-be-shop-girl at Liquid Sky) “Liquid Sky wasn’t just a shop in NYC, Liquid Sky was THE SHOP in NYC”.
 
TIME OUT NEW YORK, fall 1996; “Liquid Sky: it’s more than a place to buy t-shirts. It is a culture. The store has a waterfall window”. B.H. VERY LONDON style guide,Sept.2003; “Fun but far from superficial, Liquid Sky brings a human touch to Street Fashion, connecting people in many senses. Mixing Street Style Fashion, Graffiti looks, Spatial Installations and Music. Liquid Sky was first adopted by ravers and skaters. Spreading its philanthropic Mission with alien grace Liquid Sky is famous for linking cute original cartoons with tongue-in-cheek social commentary”.
