Polar Skate Co. are on a roll with collaborative projects of late. With a slew of popular projects behind them, last month saw the Swedish skate brand link up with Converse once again, this time to flip the Jack Purcell Tennis silhouette in to an instant skate ready classic. Polar now link up with fellow Malmö natives Très Bien on a considered collaborative release that seamlessly blends fashion and skate wear.
Both brands have played a key role in the new wave of Scandinavian fashion, not just locally but on a global scene, the collaboration brings two different worlds but two similar styles together in what comes across as a very organic and authentic release. Combining elements of Polar's unique artwork and imagery with Très Bien clinical cuts, the collection draws inspiration from 70's styling and looks to Polar riders Paul Grund and Roman Gonzales to inform certain silhouettes such as the striped tees, track-pants and jackets, while fellow rider Dane Brady adds his artistic approach to a selection of graphics used throughout.
