In case you were wondering, yes, the past couple of weeks have been fairly hectic on our side…
After spending a long winter on the road working on Volume V & the past few weeks with our hands plastered in paint getting our new shop ready for summer, last Friday was finally the time to celebrate the christening of both. The details are still a little foggy but from what we remember, it was good fun. In case you missed it, you can have a scope at the slideshow below for more of the revelry. Much love to Vans for the support organizing it as well as Ben Potier for all the photos. But above all, thanks from the bottom of our heart to every single one of you for turning up and sinking 1600 red stripes… highly impressive stuff. For those who are wondering what the deal is with the videos on Elijah Berle and Adrien Toyon in the Lebanon — watch this space as they’re coming your way very soon.
