In this post we want to show you a recent work I made for Agnes B, the French brand founded by the designer Agnes Trouble.
I designed and made a collection of rings made of resin and recycled skateboard decks, as you can see in the pictures, that are distributed in the brand’s shops in Europe, Japan and the USA.
Of course it was a pleasure to collaborate with such a company, also because the company have a strong attention for ethical and ecological issue in fashion.
Furthermore Agnes B is really fond of art, she loves to support young and emerging artists and to promote art. She has just opened La-Fab, to share and show her collections.
And most of all… she also loves urban cultures like skateboarding!
So it’s not only the designer and maker in me that is happy of this new project, but also the skater, now that skateboards are appearing in every photo, as it’s cool, and even Chanel is selling skateboards and surfboards, for thousands dollars.
But my love for skateboarding comes from the Nineties, when as kids we should invent places where we can ride, sometime paying attention to the police.
So it seems that “skateboarding is not a crime” anymore.
Now, guys, it’s fashionable and cool!
