‘Dertbag’ teen designer opens Bridgeport store

You may have seen Phil Post’s street wear on the backs of rappers Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Robb Bank$ and members of the A$AP Mob.

Now, the 18-year-old Norwalk designer and founder of dertbag is making his apparel available to Bridgeport residents with his first U.S. retail store, located on the second floor of the Arcade Mall on 10001-21 Main Street.

“I am super proud of the store,” Post told the Norwalk Citizen last week. “My whole life I haven’t lived the normal kid route.”

Post will celebrate the grand opening of Dertbag on Saturday, Aug. 17. There will be an in-store performance by rapper A$AP Ant.
