Azorean Loop | RVCA Europe

A ten day trip exploring three of the Azorean Islands (San Miguel, Pico, and Terceira). A loop through the local culture and landscape in search of untouched skate spots and visits to local craftsman in order to learn from their environment and their centenarian way of working. Can we add a contemporary vision to their traditional process? Living in the age of over-information, the work of many skaters and videographers pass us by with a quick scroll of the thumb. However, a small percentage of these creatives are joining forces and ideas to distance themselves from this, attempting to create something more physical. Why travel with only a “skate trip" mentality?

Remote destinations are a chance to learn something new, a great opportunity for us skateboarders and new cultures to cross paths.

“The last few years I pretty much been photographing landscapes. No with a narrative or anything but just straight documentation of what I see in front of me.

I´m pretty interested on how landscapes degrades and nature regains control.”

A photographic story about the local craftsman visits and

some inspirational images by Octavio Barrera.

“Back in 2014, I took a forty-day trip through the Canarian archipelago, visiting and discovering various artisans and their way of working. I became curious as a designer in how these people work with almost no access to external references, yet their craft still continues to evolve. These artists all have something in common. Love for what they do and are tired of not being valued.”

“By observing them at work in their accustomed surroundings you discover that so many are spinning a constant loop. Without inspiration from different perspectives. Is this the last call to a new generation?.”

Neutral Collection | Holiday 18

In a time when lines are more blurred than ever, we are inspired to explore the idea of the undefined. Clothing is used as a form of self-expression, with this collection we intend to bridge the gap and provide a Neutral platform for people to do just that. We have taken a minimalistic approach, with comfort and wearability at the forefront. Using soft hand fabrics, heavy laundering and indigo dyes to create worn in timeless pieces. With subtle hints of workwear and utilitarian styling, each piece is designed for versatility, to look good and wear well on anyone and allow the wearer to style their own way.
