† OOTD | Jacker

Hello, hello ! I am very happy to be back on this bright, sunny Sunday. By the time you read this, I’ll be in Paris, getting tortured… I mean tattoed. Technology -and planning, I’ll admit- really do make life a whole lot easier.

Anyway. Last week I talked about the American Socks brand, for which I worked at the Fise, and this week I wanted to talk about a brand I discovered there thanks to my friend Charlotte. There I learned that Jacker -that’s the brand- was actually a magazine about skate board, hip-hop, graffiti and more. And I learned that they used their growing success to launch a broad collection of clothes and accessories connected to those same topics. Obviously I fell for some of their products, by I’ve been good and only left with one jacket. Or rather…THE jacket.

I’ll leave you to discover their entire universe on their website and in the magazine. The official shop is in Montpellier, but you can find their products at Citadium, in Paris, for instance. You can find any information you might need on their website anyway, so enjoy yourselves ! And have a beautiful week !

† OOTD | American Socks

© Philippe Renault

Hello ! Last week I had the pleasure to partake in the Fise -or International Extreme Sports Festival- thanks to the American Socks brand, for which I worked. It wasn’t my first time going to this festival, I’d gone a few years ago with friends and the ambience was terrific, despite the fact that I’m not into extreme sports, I really had a blast.

This year, thanks to my friend and partner in crime Charlotte, who lives in Montpellier, I went back for this great opportunity, and with a perfect weather. And boy am I happy I did. I was thrilled by the feeling this festival gives, that amazing ambience. I met awesome people, and although I spent one afternoon working, I did enjoy every booths.

Just a few words about American Socks, since it kind of is the main topic of this article. It’s a brand from Barcelona -I was as surprised as you are to learn that it is in fact not American at all- which designs and makes socks in Spain. It’s an eco-friendly brand, making 100% cotton products with antibacterial properties and odor masking agents. Thank you for that ! But I’ll leave you to see all this for yourselves on their website, which is extremely well designed. And don’t hesitate to follow their Instagram, which is just as great.

Now grab your skateboard and BMX ! And have a great week !
