Matt Archbold | Fall '15 Lookbook

Vice Magazine describes Matt “Archy” Archbold as, “One of those classic, iconic figures in surfing who represents everything punk little groms want to be.”

Archy cemented his mark in surfing in the mid to late eighties with his raw, attacking style and pioneering approach to aerial surfing. Archy surfed hard, played hard, and lived even harder, gaining life lessons over the years that turned him into a cult-like hero and the subject of his own documentary, Archy. Heavily tattooed from head to toe, Archy is a man with a no-bullshit approach to life, schooling the youth with heavy turns and committed lines at spots like Off the Wall.

Archy’s inaugural signature collection combines his love of ink, garage work, and greaser styling. Following an improbable friendship forged over a makeshift tattoo studio on a North Shore porch, the collection consists of workwear classics featuring custom artwork details and label packaging by ANP artist Bert Krak of Brooklyn’s Smith Street Tattoo Parlour.

Christiaan Conradie | RVCA

Christiaan was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the age of three his family located to the coastal city of Cape Town, and it didn't take him long to develop a deep love for the ocean as he grew up surfing around the beautiful beaches of the Cape peninsula. He began painting at a young age and first first started exhibiting in local galleries at the age of 19, whilst studying art direction and design. After a two year stint in advertising, he left the industry behind to focus on his painting.

Christiaan has since exhibited internationally, including solo shows in Barcelona, Cape Town and Mexico City. Surfing, travel and music is what inspires him most. He is currently based in Mexico and true to his character is unsure of how long he'll be there for. "I'm not sure which way the wind might blow me, but for now I'm enjoying all the opportunities and the people here in Mexico, I just need to get down to the beach."

Songs: "Somos Otros" by Joe la Reina & "Every Drop, is an Ocean" by Christiaan Conradie.
