A Q&A with Mike Hill on the release of his new Supreme limited edition skatedeck and clothing collaboration, out now!

Mike Hill co-founded skateboard brand Alien Workshop in 1990 in Dayton, Ohio. As the company’s art director, Hill pioneered a defining aesthetic that challenged the established visual standards in the skate industry at the time. Unique for their photographic and three dimensional nature, Hill’s graphics combined papier-mâché, everyday objects, and manual image manipulation to create haunting tableaus. We interviewed Hill on his new collaboration with Supreme, where he created four distinct original dioramas to be featured on t-shirts and skateboard decks. The collection is now available in-store NY, LA, London, Paris and online March 23rd.

A Q&A with Alejandro Gómez Palomo designer of the LVMH Prize nominated brand Palomo Spain

Palomo Spain by Alejandro Gómez Palomo started as an idea after graduating at the London College of Fashion. His fresh take on menswear reflects a traditional Spanish aesthetic paired together with fine tailoring, craftsmanship, and over-the-top decadence. The 24-year-old designer recently debuted at New York Fashion Week with his provocative, theatrical, and lavish collection “Objeto Sexual” featuring materials usually used for womenswear such as silk organzas, velvet, satin, Chantilly lace, houndstooth, and animal prints. Now a shortlist nominee for the LVMH Prize 2017, we wanted to know more about the Spanish designer in short Q&A inspired by the Proust questionnaire.
