Agenda Q&A: Han Cholo
Agenda Q&A: Han Cholo
by Vanessa Chiu
A little lowdown from Han Cholo’s designer and founder Brandon Schoolhouse. In 2002, Han Cholo jewelry was born and raised in the belly of Hollywood, California…inspired by Brandon’s long love affair with everything rock ‘n’ roll, science fiction, fantasy art, and hip hop culture, the line has become THE accessory among young Hollywood fashionistas and celebrities alike. Han Cholo designs are bold, edgy, and steeped in pop culture influences that resonate with a young, fashion-forward generation. Enter the dragon…
How did you get started in the industry?
I worked for the Beastie Boys back in the days doing A&R. they would be going on all these shoots, and we would always talk about how the Jewelry just wasn’t there. It lacked the creativity that I was looking for. I wanted more rock n roll, syfy, star wars kinda stuff. So I decided to start designing things that I would wear, inspired by things that I love; Vintage Toys, Comic Books, Star Wars, Music etc.
Han Cholo at AGENDA
LA based jewelry brand Han Cholo is excited to be back at Agenda this season with a collection heavy in riveted machinery and futuristic armor. In true Han Cholo form, this collection appeals to a broad spectrum of styles and personalities. All pieces are intricately designed and carefully handcrafted while possessing a statement making aesthetic. Han Cholo will yet to disappoint in pushing the boundaries of the accessory world.

Dickies at AGENDA
Dickies, the iconic work brand that’s long been a part of skate and surf culture, will highlight its newest capsule collection for action sports at AGENDA Long Beach in July. Retail and consumer response to the capsule collection has been overwhelmingly positive since its debut last August at the show, with an increasing number of independent shops and small chains both within and outside the U.S. seeking to carry it. All action sports apparel by Dickies includes unique product features and distinct packaging that differentiate it from the brand’s core workwear line; making it easier for specialty shops to carry the line yet not compete with big box retailers or traditional clothing stores. New highlights for the Long Beach show will include a stretch slim straight twill pant, a stretch twill short, a slim fit pocket tee, and a camo plaid short. A French terry full zip hoodie and lightweight industrial stretch twill jacket will also be on display.
