In 2011, Jayne Min made me fall in love with skateboards when she fused her love of Celine’s 2011 prints with plywood and shared them on her blog, Stop It Right Now. Her epic creation rocked the blogging world and after selling a few limited editions of the skateboard decks, the Celine boards lived on my heart forever. I was *this* close to buying one from her – and looking back I should have pulled the trigger before I lost the chance – but I didn’t know if the color and pattern was what I wanted… See, I wanted to mount one of those skateboards on my wall, a thought that seemed really original (at the time).
Seeing Michelle Adams home in the March ’13 issue of Lonny made me realize that 1) my super original idea is not so original (made even more apparent later), and 2) I still want some skateboard decks to hang on my own walls. More searching in the Lonny photo archive, Pinterest, and The Coveteur turned up even more skateboard-as-art inspiration… And now I’m off on my personal quest for decks of my own. Apparently snagging a Supreme artist collaboration board is the way to go… So do I: Splurge for Michelle’s set of three? Track down one of these floral Supremes? Get a few of these leftovers? Pretty sad I missed out on this Janye Min + Peter Pilotto collab… Obvi I’ll let you know what I end up with. But this dream is happening.
