LIVE, IN PHOTOS: The Fashion of ComplexCon
It was a meeting of young minds and wardrobes in Long Beach.
In addition to our FLOOD Festival Guide presented by Toyota C-HR—which is available for download now—FLOOD will be at all this year’s best festivals to provide you with firsthand reports from the scene.
If you were wondering why your fashion adviser, lifestyle influencer, and cultural consul wasn’t answering your texts this past weekend, don’t fret—they were probably just swapping tips and bracing for shifts in the cultural landscape at Complex‘s second annual ComplexCon in Long Beach, California. Boasting musical performances by the likes of Gucci Mane, M.I.A., and Young Thug, as well as panels led by DJ Khaled, Takashi Murakami, and creative director Pharrell Williams—not to mention cameos by just about every other influencer of the cultural landscape in 2017—ComplexCon proved a veritable resource for cutting-edge conversations curated by dependable innovators.
Toted as “our generation’s world fair,” the event followed through with a millennial renaissance of art, music, ideas, toys, and—perhaps most notably—fashion. We sent photographer Adrian Santos to capture some of our favorite looks from convention-goers, as well as a few other moments from the weekend, which can be viewed in the slideshow below.
