"Can Narcos be Fashion?" Netflix show to become a designer brand


Today it was announced that Gaumont (www.gaumont.fr) has partnered with Dropdaze (www.dropdaze.com) to conceptualize, create, and launch the designer brand, “Narcos Los Angeles.” The brand will encompass luxury jewelry, designer fashion pieces, lifestyle goods, and collaboration capsule collections inspired by the hit Netflix original series Narcos. The brand’s design team is led by noted designers and passionate artisans with backgrounds in creating avant-garde collections.


Season one of Narcos Los Angeles will launch with a luxury collection of men’s ready-to-wear jewelry, and accessories, utilizing premium textiles, handcrafted hardware, and custom graphics while staying true to the moody tone of the series. All jewelry is made in Los Angeles and will be available in both .925 sterling silver and gold with the option of bespoke pieces being a key differentiator for the brand.

Featured apparel items include refined military jackets and pants, heavy-weight graphic tees and hoodies, and silk soccer uniform sets. Each item will recreate memorable style moments of the acclaimed series with a contemporary approach.

The Narcos Los Angeles collection will be available to purchase online this year. An interactive web experience and pop-up shops will be located in select, key markets in support of the brand launch. These brand experiences will authentically connect the visual identity in the collection to secretive, clubhouse-like spaces inspired by the sets of the show.


To add to the excitement, Narcos Los Angeles is slated to drop show-inspired collaborations with notable names in the world of designer fashion and luxury goods which will further deliver upon the promise of this new and unique lifestyle brand. The licensing partnership between Gaumont and Dropdaze was brokered by Evolution, Narcos’ global licensing agency.

Oscilloscope's new film THE INFILTRATORS available Virtual Cinema starting May 1 and VOD starting June 2


Viewing links available for review and editorial consideration upon request. 

Virtual cinema theater list will be available soon. 

“THE INFILTRATORS manages to personalize the undocumented struggle by transforming it into an unlikely blend of activism and suspense that makes a compelling case for the abolishment of ICE.”
— Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE

“A doc mixing interviews, real-time action and reenactment in exciting ways, Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra's THE INFILTRATORS tells a true story so inspiring it's a wonder it isn't better known.’

“Chronicling the audacious acts of a group of organized undocumented youth prior to the Obama-implemented, temporary relief known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), THE INFILTRATORS, from Latinx directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra, is a vital piece of hybrid cinema that shines light into the obscure realm of privately-operated immigration detention facilities.”
—Carlos Aguilar, THE WRAP


THE INFILTRATORS is a docu-thriller that tells the true story of young immigrants who are detained by Border Patrol and thrown into a shadowy for-profit detention center— on purpose. Marco and Viri are members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, a group of radical DREAMers who are on a mission to stop unjust deportations. And the best place to stop deportations, they believe, is in detention. However, when Marco and Viri attempt a daring reverse ‘prison break,’ things don’t go according to plan. By weaving together documentary footage of the real infiltrators with re-enactments of the events inside the detention center, THE INFILTRATORS tells an incredible and thrilling true story in a genre-defying new cinematic language.
