SKATE&CHIPS - A collaboration with 55DSL & APN


In June we launched our first collaboration with street brand '55DSL' which, after 20yrs was to be their last collaboration. The APN theme 'SKATE & CHIPS' was our inspirationshowing the heritage of the brand through Americana (Skate) and of the British sea-side (Chips).
 
Taking  the APN historical design through our skateboard heritage, 55DSL added their own touch to create a one off 55” custom decal APN cruiser deck. There was only ever 20 produced, numbered 94 – 14, celebrating every year from 1994 to 2014 of the 55DSL brand.
