Mark ‘The Gonz’ Gonzales is a man of many talents. You may know him from his innovative skateboarding prowess, or maybe you’re more familiar with his poetry zines or his designs for skate-, street-, and sportswear greats like Supreme and adidas. He’s even tried his hand at designing sunglasses.
Now, the Gonz has lent his hand to French menswear imprint Études for a limited capsule consisting of the brand’s classic Info button-down and October tote, featuring three original Gonz artworks. In addition to mass-produced items, Gonz also customized bomber jackets and Sesam hats. Each piece is adorned with Gonz’s eccentric artwork and messaging, set contrastingly against clean menswear offerings. In classic Gonz fashion, the brand also helped produce a DIY zine of Mark’s poetry and art to accompany the garments. All of which coincide with the Études 2016 spring/summer collection titled “Up and Down Town.”
The collection drops in May with a launch party scheduled at Études’ Paris flagship on May 12.
