We recently shot London locals Dan and Rohan at the Greenwich hip spot, just prior to the coronavirus outbreak and invited them to pick a few pieces from the recent Spring Summer ’20 collections hitting Parade. Read on as we introduce their selects.
"Hi, I’m Daniel, 23 years old and I’m a skater, designer and creative. I also have my foot in the admin world, gotta fund those dreams y'know."
"Hey, I'm Rohan, 22 years old and I'm also a skater and a painter. I love to design and I'm teaching myself embroidery at the moment. I'm also a bit of a pain in the ass if I love you!"
Rohan: "When it comes to skating, I like Fucking Awesome 'cause to me it just screams skateboarding in its rawest form, also with a huge "I don't care" attitude. Polar is also sick, they make the most amazing jeans, shout out to the BIG BOYS!"
Dan: "I like Yardsale for their retro look and also Magenta, their style of skating makes me want to go skate."
Rohan: "Favourite skate videos? I flex the Ice Cream video! It was the first skate related thing I ever saw where people that looked like me were being themselves. And Baker 4, as I could also relate to that and had friends just like that."
Dan: "Supreme's Blessed, just because of all the different types of skate styles and the music selection was on point. LurkNYC has got the best street videos too."
Dan: "My top tip for self-isolation? Buy lots of food, weed and pen and paper!"
Rohan: "Find the sun and try to find out what makes you happy, then just do it over and over. Indoors of course!"
