This past Monday, we celebrated the RSVP Gallery x #HEINEKEN100 product launch. Easy Otabor, alongside the rest of the RSVP staff, welcomed influencers, friends, and customers to the unveiling of our exclusive collaborative item for #HEINEKEN100: our classic Chicago-style cap, featuring a lambskin strap-back and crown of plush jersey knit. Ours is one of five collaborations with #HEINEKEN100, featuring the most iconic menswear retailers throughout the country: KITH in N.Y.C., Concepts in Boston, Alchemist in Miami, and Union in Los Angeles. Additionally, for the first time in the program’s six-year existence, the premier brewery has produced the #HEINEKEN100 City Guide, carefully curated by each of its five collaborators. Hit play above for our event recap and stop by the shop to pick up a free copy of the City Guide.
A scroll through your Instagram feed last Tuesday might have left you with a sense of #FOMO, as guests to the RSVP Gallery x HEINEKEN One Hundred City Documentary screening catalogued their night at Chicago’s Soho House. Now in its fifth year, the #Heineken100 program selected our very own Easy Otabor as one of its influencers for an inspirational “about me” related to his role as RSVP’s Operator/Buyer, as well as his unique perspective on the city of Chicago. Easy and RSVP join the four other purveyors of all things cool, Deon Point from Concepts, Chris Gibbs from Union, Roma Cohen from the Alchemist, and Ronnie Fieg from Kith, to showcase their respective city.
Following the “100” theme, the man of the hour hosted one-hundred of the shop’s friends and family. All the guests got to mingle in Soho’s library before heading to the theater space to enjoy the short documentary, popcorn et al.
