The Seventh Letter’s flagship store and gallery opened last week, we stopped by the grand opening and it was quite the event. As you may know from our past with the Seventh Letter crew and brand, we had an entire issue dedicated to them in July 2007, and have extensively covered exhibitions at Known Gallery in LA over the years. That said, this store is long, long overdue, and we are so happy they got the flagship up and running!!! Hope you enjoy the photos.
