After HUF was scooped up by Japan’s TSI Holdings Co., the longstanding skate imprint began to cater to Eastern customers as much as its usual American clientele, dropping domestic collectibles and teaming with famed Japanese artists. Now, the label has rejoined UNITED ARROWS & SONS for the first time in over two years to launch a special capsule collection inspired by the style of legendary skater Matt Hensley.

Hensley, perhaps best known for currently playing the accordion in Celtic punk band Flogging Molly, stars alongside HUF founder Keith Hufnagel in the “Downhill 2” collection’s lookbook, with art direction offered by UNITED ARROWS & SONS director Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi and WSSF studio and photography courtesy of legendary skate photographer Grant Brittain. Key pieces include an accordion-patterned tee, fleece-lined hoodie, fishtail parka, bomber jacket and a bespoke set of Dickies, to name a few highlights. A custom HUF skate deck is also included, though Hensley himself is in quasi-retirement from skating.

Expect the collection to launch on HUF’s ZOZOTOWN page, UNITED ARROWS & SONS and each brand’s stores across Japan.

Recently, HUF issued a thematic collection in honor of Pulp Fiction‘s 25th anniversary.
