Cobrasnake's giant furbie might just be furrier than him...

LA retail got a kick in the ass this weekend when PAPER MAGAZINE opened their 24-hour pop up shop/"Cultural Storefront" on LaBrea Ave @ 3rd Street where local hipsters swarmed (and queued) to get their hands on superfly goods on offer from international retailers like Colette, Opening Ceremony, Undefeated, M.A.C The Smell, Levi's Damien Hirst, Screaming Mimi's, Ooga Booga, Mollusk, Citizen-Citizen, PAPER art store, Family, RVCA, Kime Buzzelli's Showpony, Creative Growth, Jack Spade,  Lost + Found, William Good, Heartschallenger, Cobrasnake, Supreme, A+R, Ingo Maurer, Three Asfour, FUCT, Rodarte, and Jeremy Scott. And just like that, 24 hours later, it was all gone, with nary a trace of the hipster heaven that 233 S. LaBrea once housed. PEEP THE RECAP:
