Barbara Kruger & Volcom Take It Back

by The Editors on November 3, 2017

We all know where Supreme got their logo. Yes, they “appropriated” it from artist Barbara Kruger from the beginning. But now, she’s taking skateboarding back with a little help from Volcom in a pop-up shop of her own as part of Performa, a performance art biennial that runs through November 19 in New York, according to a story in W Magazine.

“Believe me, I wasn’t thinking about Supreme,” Kruger said of her Performa commission. “Really, I was not thinking about it at all. I’ve just been doing my thing for a long time, and they popped up and did theirs, and I don’t own that typeface, you know? I don’t own a logo. But what they do has little to do with the ideas that have been fueling my artwork for my whole career—questions of justice and power and control. The last thing I would ever think of is a streetwear brand.”

And that’s why we’ve always preferred Kruger. Another part of her Perform commission was this work at Coleman Skate Park.

With Daniel’s original artwork and a self-portrait on the footbeds, this personalized silhouette features an embroidered handwritten signature by Lutheran on the tongue and an ode to his home state of New Mexico with the Zia symbol stitched onto the heel.

What a nice looking shoe. It’s almost like no one else makes skate shoes anymore. Do they? Click the jump for all the details.

Volcom Is The Anchor

by The Editors on October 25, 2017

Sometimes it’s hard to be a punk rock fashion line in the grand house of Gucci. Try though they might it seems that Volcom just can’t live up to the expectations of its parent Kering, according to a story on SBGmedia.

Kering reported revenues in its Sport & Lifestyle segment grew 15.9 percent on a currency-neutral basis as a 17.3 percent jump at Puma offset a decline at Volcom. . . Volcom’s performance continued to be hampered by the challenges faced by specialist distributors in the US.”

Yes, blame it on the “specialist distributors.”
