Prohibit was founded in 2001 and was first of its kind to introduce Tokyo’s eclectic street style to the New York downtown subculture.  The downtown crew created this store with a specific concept in mind; underground and breaking the rules, simply stated, “the streets with speak.” Not only is Prohibit a retail platform, but also a lifestyle brand that has revolutionized the direction of street wear in downtown New York City and across the globe.
