Carhartt WIP x Polar Skate Co Collab Collection!

Polar Skate Co was set up and run by Pontus Alv. Carhartt started as an industrial work ware company based in Detroit. The two have come together to create some special products and collaborations which stretch across photography, art, advertising and fashion with some really cool results. 

Carhartt in their own right are a pretty cool brand having infiltrated the street wear world and established themselves with solid clothes and a good run of past collaborations with artists and musicians. And the collab with Polar continues that in fine style with a selection of t - shirts, jackets and accessories bearing the Polar x Carhartt badge but its also spawned a rather fine photo series by Nils Svensson, perfectly combining the grand and the grit with his shots of Polar team riders ripping up some classic DIY spots. Resident Polar artist Jacob Ovgren also knocked out some super rad graphics for the project and you can spy him in action in the video below. 

The perfect combination of art, skateboarding, fashion, photography, architecture & DIY culture! Check out some more Polar edits here and check out the full Polar x Carhartt launch deets here.
