‘Guns N’ Roses Was Here’ — With a Stripper, Wrecked Cop Car & Axl’s Custom Converse

Guns N’ Roses Was Here in L.A. — but not for long. Trendy boutique Maxfield launched an immersive pop-up shop on Aug. 11 featuring a limited-edition capsule collection inspired by the legendary rock group; It bows Friday.

The exclusive line designed by Off-White, Amiri, Enfant Riches Déprimés, Kelly Cole, Palm Angels, MadeWorn and Harley-Davidson, nods the 30th anniversary of the music group’s debut “Appetite for Destruction” album.

Featuring jackets, hoodies, tops, accessories and more, the collection nods the 1987 breakout album’s grudge roots. Prices range from $40 to $4,000.

Inside Maxfield’s 2,500 square foot space, the items were presented alongside lead singer Axl Roses’s memorable custom Converse ERX high-top sneakers in white — “AXL” monogrammed on the tongue, and a black pair of React kicks emblazoned with “AXL” on the counter.

The store was transformed into a glam-rock shopping experience, complete with edgy art, a police car with blaring lights and a stripper pole.
