De Cardenas’s work may have an ’80s influence, but his clothes don't — except when it comes to his watches and sunglasses. All of the Swatches in his collection are from the ’80s, but “the grey one second from the right, I had it as a kid, and it’s the only one that’s considered valuable,” he says. “People are like wow, you have that? It was the whole design inspiration for the OHWOW Waverly space.” Some of the sunglasses were originally his father’s: “The one with the green Croakies, and the Ray-Ban aviators with the leather rim. My parents kept plastic sunglasses, like tons of them.”
