Proenza Schouler - Wave Print Short Board

Riding the waves is no longer an activity of the street as luxury couture surfboards are now a part of power fashion houses' line-up of products. After finding out that CHANEL had stamped its double C's on the waves, we came across the same seaward venture from America's Proenza Schouler. The duo who had won the CFDA Perry Ellis Award for New Talent in 2003 takes a more casual-happy approach than CHANEL's glossy black and white number with a bright wave graphic lifted straight from Proenza Schouler's runway which was a mix of surf, tropics with the label's signature tailored menswear inspired pieces. Other than the Proenza Schouler graphics and logo, the short board is also a notable technical production as it is produced with the highest quality finish by Virginia Beach-based Shire Board Company and NYC retailer, Kirna Zabete. The board hand crafted from carbon fiber, a top of the line inlaid shell veneer with a epoxy resin finish. Since the board is made to order, so please allow three to four weeks for production and customization.   via: T Magazine Blog
