LAUREN'S LESSON :: Benny Gold

LAUREN'S LESSON :: Benny Gold

Celebrated streetwear designer Benny Gold did something not many have done before: he closed down his brand on a good note. He didn't run it into the ground until the wheels fell off, he didn't sell it to some shell corporation to let them control it like a parasite. He recognized it had run its course (for now) and made an incredibly difficult decision. And in this time of late stage capitalism, that makes him an extreme outlier. While in San Francisco for his book tour, Bobby sat down with longtime friend Benny to discuss what went into that decision and what the next chapter of his life is like. Spoiler alert: everything Benny is doing is gold.
