Achievement

There is no end to Blondey McCoy’s creative output. The skater, artist, clothing designer and model does it all with grace and grit, whether its presenting new artworks at a gallery, landing top tricks for a new skate vid, being tapped for a new editorial with a luxury brand or just plain designing some new garb for his label THAMES MMXX.

It was a relatively quiet year for McCoy due to the coronavirus lockdown, but blessings came in other forms as his son Eblen Thomas Joseph Hage was born this September. While the world did feel like it was on hold, McCoy still had a strong 2020 as he was the face for Berluti’s SS20 campaign in January. On the clothing production side, THAMES MMXX dropped a clean AW20 collection as well as new sunglasses for the year. Look to 2021 to bring in more Blondey news as there could be some projects involving his art and partnership with adidas coming along the way.
