Survival of the Illest


A large crowd gathers on Second Street in Little Tokyo Tuesday, Jan. 11, in anticipation of the grand opening of Illest, a new clothing store that is occupying the former Kimura Photomart space. Eager customers began waiting in line Monday night, in hopes of being the first in and snapping up some of the free giveaways, which included customized iPhone covers and yo-yos. Specializing in apparel with an urban, car culture-inspired flavor, the shop is the Los Angeles flagship store for the same company that operates the Fatlace store in San Francisco’s Japantown.
