OWL Skateboards present ▤UTOPOS▤

 

 Our friends over at OWL Skateboards have dropped a brand new video dubbed 'Utopos', and with it an accompanying zine and limited edition board series.

 Inspired by brutalist architecture, the board graphics are a result of a collaboration between riders Chris Price, James Griffiths and Daryl Mersom, exploring the "dystopian image of brutalism, despite an attempted utopian purpose". The 10-minute clip, filmed by Stefan Darque and edited by Al Hodgson, features riders James Griffiths, Jim Silver, Francis Peters, Joe Coward, Al Hodgson, Daryl Mersom, Edi Poolay and Billy Trick out in the streets of Bristol and Brighton.

Watch the full clip above and head over to www.owlskateboards.co.uk to scope the zine and pick up a limited edition deck, available now.

Noah Fall 2017 Lookbook

 

 

Heavily influenced by the 80's, Noah has unveiled this seasons offerings with a strong lookbook for Fall 2017. Keeping things simple in a clean studio setting and referencing some of the era's most iconic musical acts in the images, the visuals capture key pieces from the collection which takes notes from the decade to inform several designs. In amongst the more elevated items such as the tailored double-breasted jackets and trousers, we see bulky knitted sweaters and mohair vests, alongside light outerwear and robust rugby shirt styles - a nod to the brands East Coast influence that has become commonplace in previous releases. The release is rounded off with several staple items featuring new designs, as well as the brands trademark logo, applied as pocket and back prints.

The first drop from Noah's Fall 2017 release is available now in limited numbers ovr at doverstreetmarket.com now.

Très Bien x Polar Skate Co. Capsule Collection

 

 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.

Take a closer look at the collection in the lookbook above. The Très Bien x Polar Skate Co. Capsule Collection is available now at select retailers including Flatspot., Goodhood and END.
