Knowing that the weekend’s impact extends far beyond showcasing the best basketball players in the world, the Utah Jazz are presenting a variety of off-court activations to ensure that everyone can partake in the electric atmosphere of NBA All-Star 2023.

Perhaps no surprise given its emergence as an integral part of the NBA scene, fashion will take center stage at the newest Jazz-sponsored event announced today.

Free to experience, The Shop Salt Lake City is a pop-up retail experience for local and national retailers with new merchandise being dropped daily. The event will take place at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City from Feb. 16 through Feb. 19.

The Shop Salt Lake City will activate in two separate locations, with five national brands located at 16 N Rio Grande and one at 15 S Rio Grande. 

Here's a breakdown of the six brands that will be represented at All-Star weekend:

16 N Rio Grande

Owned and established by the Utah Jazz in 2023, CounterPoint is a private-label apparel and lifestyle brand named as a statement of intent. The brand embodies the harmonic expression of the style formed by combining the worlds of sport and fashion.

Divided into distinct lines, CounterPoint consists of 'The Core' and 'Quickstrike' collections. The Core is the staple design that establishes the brand, with elevated design elements focused on fit, feel and typography. Quickstrike utilizes collaborations with various designers and artists to create cultural touch points and an opportunity to connect with the fan of the future.

“The integration of sports and fashion is a natural evolution for the Utah Jazz, and I am so excited about the concept,” said Ryan Smith, owner of the Utah Jazz. “Through its distinct message and vibe, CounterPoint will serve as another avenue for storytelling for not only the Jazz brand but also the greater Utah community and our amazing network of creative minds who are driving the state’s emerging fashion scene.”

MRKT is a multi-brand menswear concept shop located in Miami's illustrious Design District. The brand mix features a selection of modern, forward-thinking designers, carefully curated to highlight each unique piece individually and the collections throughout the store.

Cactus Jack
Founded by multi-platinum hip hop artist Travis Scott, the aesthetics of Cactus Jack are rooted in the musician's artistic sensibilities. The brand's apparel styles feature familiar Scott motifs, including flames, desert plants, and hand-drawn typography. Today, Cactus Jack is known for its surprise merchandise releases and one-off collaborations from McDonald's and PlayStation to Jordan Brand and fragment design.

In the current culture marketplace, StockX's mission is to provide access to some of the world's most coveted items in the most innovative way possible. StockX is a marketplace where buyers and sellers can make anonymous offers on various shoes, streetwear, electronics, and collectibles. As a live marketplace, StockX empowers buyers to bid and buy at real-time prices that reflect the current demand.

Mitchell & Ness | Featuring SLAM and Thrifthood
For more than100 years, Mitchell & Ness has been one of the world’s premier apparel companies. Today, Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. offers authentic vintage jerseys and apparel collections for the MLB, NFL, NBA, NCAA, and MLS.

Long before the connection between basketball and hip-hop had become intertwined, a hip-hop magazine for basketball was born. SLAM accurately captured how language was changing, whether written, performed, or designed. It stood out because it represented the love of the game with an authenticity that other mainstream outlets couldn't sniff.

Owned by Sissy and Albee and based in Provo, UT, Thrifthood is a Utah-based vintage store. Currently with the largest selection of 1993 All-Star gear, Thrifthood curates vintage clothes from the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. 

15 S Rio Grande

The Webster
Originally the Webster Hotel, Laure Heriard Dubreuil opened The Webster's flagship location in 2009. Herald Dubreuil kept the name but reimagined the three-story interior as a women's and men's multi-brand luxury retailer designed with vibrant intimacy to resemble a residential space.

A decade after the Miami flagship opened, The Webster has expanded to six additional locations. Each store has its own distinctive energy, unified by Heriard Dubreuil's uncompromising vision of good energy, good fashion, good fun, and Miami's sunny spirit.
