To put it simply, Lanie Alabanza-Barcena, is streetwear royalty. The San Diego native moved to New York and paid her dues designing for some of the streetwear industry’s heaviest hitters —Rocawear and Triple 5 Soul—before creating her own brand, Hellz Bellz.
Her remarkable eye for design and innovative cut and sew pieces, have quickly propelled the brand to the fierce presence it is today.
