HUF teams up with Cliche Skateboards for a Fall 2011 Capsule Collection, featuring a couple t-shirts, a 5 panel hat and a pair of Hufnagel Pros (*my personal favorite model). Each piece is designed around the very recognizable historic French monument; from the color scheme to the graphics. The collection can be found at our Momentum Marketplace location, in very limited quantities… So, don’t sleep on this one.
Here is some background information of the collaboration:
Cliché Skateboards was founded in 1997 by French pro skateboarder Jeremie Daclin. Never one to buckle under the demands of the mainstream, Daclin has maintained an air of originality in Cliché through the company’s do-it-yourself approach to skateboarding as a brand. From organizing nomadic “Gypsy” skate tours, to collaborating with only the finest in skateboarding and street-wear brands and artists, Cliché has successfully made their mark on the American skateboard scene without ever losing touch with their French origins. The very name of the brand, “Cliché,” is essential to its philosophy as a company: it is one of the few words understood in both French and English that is able to transcend cultural barriers, much in the same way Daclin seeks to transcend geographical ones in skateboarding. – via HUF
