Wow! Empire of what? We don’t know and we don’t care. For all we know, this wheat-paste up we found in the lofts-filled Meatpacking District in NYC might be some guerrilla marketing for the next big underground clothing brand, the next A Bathing Ape or the next Built by Wendy or the next United Bamboo, except that it’s called Empire and its logo is of a film-noirish punk girl with a Medussa-like mane and a thing for grabbing her crotch a la Marky Mark in that famous ’90’s Calvin Klein ad. Whatever the case, this has impact.
