la 92 

“LA 92: To Live And Die In LA” is a collaboration between artist Terrick Gutierrez’s 1159 Studios and Garrett Howard’s Touché brand.


The shirt design is inspired by Terrick’s series that commemorates the 30th anniversary of the LA Uprising that occurred on April 29, 1992. The uprising was in response to the acquittal of four white LAPD officers who were caught on tape severely beating motorist, Rodney King.


While the impacts of the civil unrest are still felt today across South Central, this shirt also represents the love and pride we both have for our city. Subsequently, “To Live And Die In LA” in our design also pays homage to Tupac’s song of the same name.

We chose to memorialize this moment in LA’s history as an “uprising” instead of a “riot” as language is important. We value the movement as an uprising that was a catalyst for change.
