There’s really nothing Mark Gonzales can’t do. The legendary skater has not only carved his name in the culture’s history but he has also paved new paths for himself in the creative fields, continuing to push his art and poetry, as well as linking up with various arms of the fashion game. Normally linked with sporting names, The Gonz has most recently teamed up with French menswear brand Études for their runway show and a capsule collection (which makes use of some of his poetry on their garments), and they’ve gone three for three with the release of this short fashion film. Showcasing the label’s pieces and the city of New York, as Gonzales recites his own poetry over the scene, the visual is fluid, thoughtful, and probably not a bad way to spend four minutes of your day. Check it out above and hit Études’ online store for more info about the collection.
