Interview Magazine recently ran a short piece touching on Alex Dymond, founder of Starks and buyer at Supreme. The Manhattan-raised Dymond has been the creative force behind several projects as of late including a Marc by Marc Jacobs collaborative lace, work with colette and multi-seasonal releases with KAWS’ OriginalFake. However beyond that, he’s also done extensive work with Burton with what we can assume is just the tip of the iceberg. An excerpt can be seen below while the full scope of the article can be seen here.
As a buyer for Supreme, the iconic global brand and local skater hangout, Dymond focuses the legendary skate company’s aesthetic. He helps run the SoHo store and has freelanced on graphics, accessories and shoes, serving the brand’s cult following with unique concepts which graced lighters, flashlights and key chains.
He also recently worked on some laces with artist KAWS’ OriginalFake line, an opposite in sensibility from the two-tone of the Jacobs sort but inherently Starks nonetheless. Dymond has also worked with the likes of Nike, Timberland and Colette; and last year, Burton hired the designer to create an entirely new outerwear collection called “Heritage,” making its debut this fall/winter season. He’ll design the next season’s collection as well, but he won’t say more: “It’s always too early to reveal your hand and mention projects in the making. But yes, we have some unique footwear projects on deck, to say the least.” Did we hear deck?
