Alekesam x RVCA

We are excited to announce a new partnership between RVCA and ALEKESAM. Based in Venice, ALEKESAM is the musical collaboration of Sal Masekela and Sunny Levine. However, Sal and Sunny’s musical history goes well beyond their current configuration. Their fathers (Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine) were long time musical partners and raised Sal and Sunny as brothers.

Defying genre, ALEKESAM has created their own sound which they call SURF R&B. Their 2015 song ALL IS FORGIVEN went viral after it was featured in season four of Showtime series House Of Lies. In addition to his musical endeavors, Sal is well known as a TV presenter and for his contributions in the Action Sports and Surf worlds. Sunny is also a recording artist under his own name and recently produced the new Shabazz Places album: Quazarz vs The Jealous Machines.

ALEKESAM will be releasing their new single OH SHANTE feat. TOO $HORT on Friday October 27th. And to commemorate their new partnership with RVCA, they will be live streaming a performance with TOO $HORT on Thursday October 26th at 8pm Pacific Time/11pm East Coast time.

Toy Machine x RVCA

We are excited to introduce you to the new Toy Machine x RVCA Collection.

“The collab was a no-brainer. Both companies place importance on authenticity in their teams, artwork, and ways we approach our business. Since I have been doing Toy Machine since 1993 and working with RVCA since 2003 what would be organic and authentic than for both companies to work together to offer a line of clothes that is the love-child of us coming together? The spawn of our union includes T-Shirts, flannel, hats, socks, a vest, limited edition skateboard decks and even a women’s swimsuit!' — Ed Templeton

Benjamin Jean Jean | True Stories Paris

Launching the third edition of ‘TRUE STORIES’ and first book release from the growing project, RVCA was proud to gather a community of artists, skaters, creatives and amateurs at CLASSIC book store in Paris this past Friday. In presence of artist and project initiator Benjamin Jeanjean, a longtime global ANP artist, the Paris happening allowed for a nice mix of profiles, personalities and authentic art amateurs.

« It’s pretty impressive and encouraging to see people come and learn about the project, » Jeanjean said. « These artworks and book are just the start of something way bigger I believe, as the refugee topic pretty much exists everywhere around the globe. Hopefully, we take this beyond and I hope we can bring in tens of artists to join and deliver their own take on the topic to make it a big-scale group show in the short term. »

The inititaive started in Vienna (AUT), after Jeanjean spent over a month living and learning with various refugees to deeply understand their experiences and tranlsate it all into refined, detailed custom illustrations. That first moment naturally took the artist to add work and artworks to the first chapter and hit Bordeaux (FRA), before producing a first book ‘TRUE STORIES : Vol. I ALI’ that was launched in Paris Friday.

« A book is always a great item to gather both stories and illusrations, to really take the time to transcribe those experiences and have something that stays on your hands, » RVCA Marketing’s Greg Puget said. «We are really proud to support Benjamin’s work and vision, and RVCA really is that unique brand that allows to commit to such beautiful, committed deep art projects. Definitely looking at the next stages on how we help the artist reach a wider audience because his project deserves more. »

A first happening in a long time in Paris, it was a great re-launch for the brand in the French capital, a project that naturally cals in for some soon-to-come new moments for the community.
