Skateboarding has permeated our culture over the past few decades and there’s no better illustration of this than Carhartt WIP’s latest skate video. Taking to the UK suburbs, the workwear label’s streetwear-leaning imprint taps French director Simon Cahn as he highlights young up-and-comer Philippe De Rosa. Trailing De Rosa for a day, Cahn’s film looks at “the requisite totems of boyhood” as De Rosa straddles that line between youth and adulthood and what that means for a young skater like De Rosa. As WIP puts it:

In a lot of ways Philippe represents a generation in the midst of a great skateboarding renaissance. Just a few decades ago, skating was regarded as a subculture for the anti-social, conjuring up images of delinquent kids and criminal activity. Today creativity has found a place to flourish in skating. For sticking the trials and errors, modern skaters have been awarded with choices. No longer is knowledge limited to the elite few. To become an overnight expert takes little more than motivation and an internet connection.

One thing that hasn’t changed is that, well, shit happens. Clothes rip and any semblance of security in a piece of clothing goes out the window the moment one steps on a board. The upside to this is that it gave us the opportunity to create something that withstands the traditional wear and tear when skating.

The result is the brand’s “Untitled” capsule collection, which shares its name with the film and offers up skate-centric takes on Carhartt’s workwear classics.

Featuring timeless tees, sweatshirts, denim, chore coats, and caps, the tasteful capsule is available now in-stores and online.
