Collective Status (@StatusATX) on Austin’s 6th Street, @SXSW 2013

clothing, events, music, Shopping

I first noticed Collective Status last year at SXSW, and the iconic hip-hop shop seems something of an anomaly amongst 6th Street’s seemingly-endless row of bars and clubs. But the upscale urban clothing boutique has a DJ in its front window during the festival, and helps sponsor some of the hip-hop showcases as well. They carry most of the popular clothing lines including Rocksmith, Crooks and Castles, 10 Deep and Pink Dolphin. They also have fitted caps, watches and shoes. If you visit, be sure to check out the custom-made figurine of the late Pimp C of UGK beside the cash register. Collective Status is located at 516 E. Sixth Street in Austin. Call them at (512) 480-0088 or email them at boutiquestatus@gmail.com.
