Simple Session is less than a week away now and each year they have some limited edition clothing up for grabs. Check out this years collaborations…
Rob Paik from Quintin: “In working with Risto, over at Simple Session, we wanted to go the opposite direction of how we see many hats made today. Focusing more heavily on the fabrication and not take the traditional 3D embroidery route, essentially, we wanted the hats to stand out – but we wanted them to stand out because of the subdued design. Utilizing fabrics such as organic canvas, rare herringbones and distressed twill, we wanted a hat that, first off, a person would be proud to wear long after the event is done. Secondly, we wanted to make sure we made hats that had a universal appeal, outside of BMX and skate. We are proud to be a part of Simple Session, a contest with such magnitude. We hope these hats serve as a reminder, long after the contest has ended, as to how far Simple Session can continual push both sports! We look forward to seeing everyone out there with the likes of Quintin riders Aaron Ross, Dan Lacey, Ben Lewis and Gabe Brooks!”
All hats are made in Los Angeles USA.
On our new hats we were fortunate enough to work together with our new official partner Quintin Co. Quintin is an L.A. based streetwear company that really doesn’t need much introduction in BMX and skate circuits.
On the SS12 T-shirt line we worked together with several great designers and illustrators. We continued to work with Canadian rider and designer Travis Collier who developed further his skull theme he started for SS11. We also worked with Swedish fashion label Cheap Monday co-founder, designer and our good friend Karl Grandin from Vår who created a mystical SS puzzle to do with Egyptian pyramid ramp. Well-known Estonian Illustrator and skateboarder Fred Kotkas went for a witty illustration called “Party Decks”. We also updated our popular “Police” tee for SS12 and have a few more additions such as Skeleton and Simple logo tees.
All T-shirts are made in Denmark and printed in Estonia.
The SS12 apparel line will be available at the Saku venue in the Simple Session 12 at Simple Session / Quintin booth as well as VANS booth! Be there to meet Quintin and VANS team riders and get your hands on some fresh SS gear to sport on.
