HUF and Chocolate Skateboards are teaming up to commemorate the legacy of the late Keenan Milton with a capsule collection, fittingly titled “Forever.” Milton was an essential addition to the original Chocolate crew and a personal friend of Keith Hufnagel up until his unfortunate and untimely passing in 2001. According to Girl and Chocolate co-owner and Oscar-winning filmmaker Spike Jonze, “His passing left a hole in this group of friends… There was no one that didn’t love him.” Milton was an energetic presence who brought a youthful spirit of camaraderie and infectious fun to everything he did, be it a video shoot or switch-flipping a table in a schoolyard.
Both Girl and Chocolate have paid tribute to Milton in every video since his passing with a commemorative “Keenan Forever” sequence, which appears on a graphic tee in this collection. The apparel celebrates Milton’s vivacious spirit and lust for life across casual apparel like varsity jackets, dad hats and sweatpants.
The collection is available now from HUF’s online store, its LA flagship and stockists worldwide. The HUF crew will also be celebrating Keenan’s birthday at its NYC store’s opening on August 4 with a commemorate skate jam.
