I quote from the press release: “In the 80’s there was no bigger skateboard company than Powell Peralta. . . . One of the key factors to Powell’s dominance as a skateboard powerhouse were the ground-breaking graphics. Using extremely dark and detailed hand drawn image of skulls, snakes and dragons, PP was the first skate/street company to throw such taboo images into the mainstream. . . . Today designer Danny Drake has teamed up with George Powell to reissue a collection of 8 of the most memorable graphics in skate history on updated bodies. These PP items are an extremely limited edition and are only available in “The Rail” at Nordstom”.
As if that wasn’t enough, Cab, Mike V and Mcgill are making in-store appearances at Nordstrom stores in Ca. Wow.
For those interested in seeing this stuff, here’s the McGill hoodie.
A Tony Danza mannequin? That’s the best they could do? And no mention of VCJ, the original artist. Nice. And of course they forget to mention that you can buy any of these graphics on regular tees and sweats from Powell at skateone, but then you wouldn’t have the privilege of overpaying for the “Pathway” name, right???
