VIBE is sad to report that LRG clothing Co-Founder Jonas Bevacqua has died. There is little information to report on the cause of this fashion icon’s death, but a confirmation was made this afternoon via Twitter from online clothing store, Karmaloop, a carrier of LRG.
“Our thoughts & prayers go out to the loved ones of Jonas, co-founder of LRG. We’re deeply saddened by this news. Rest in Peace.” – via @Karmaloop on Twitter
Bevacqua, who is a native of Southern California, developed LRG alongside Co-Founder and business partner Robert Wright in 1999.
In an interview with HypeBeast at the beginning of May, Bevacqua described LRG as an independent, family-operation, apparel company with multicultural roots, delighting in the collaborations between their extended family of professional athletes, artists, and musicians.
