Lakai Limited Footwear Presents: Spike & Andy For Pico
For its Spring 2011 line, Lakai Limited Footwear worked hand in hand with 2 of their most famous collaborators: internationally acclaimed movie director Spike Jonze and Creative Director Andy Jenkins. Both long time friends have a trail of collaborative projects, among which the creation of Girl Skateboards and the string of brands attached to the Girl House. As part of the Lakai family from day 1, Jonze as had his hands on multiple Lakai projects, among which the Where The Wild Things Are line of footwear back in 2009. This spring’s colorway of Lakai‘s new classic, the Pico, is his first ever project under his own name. The white suede / white canvas combo reflects Jonze‘s natural personal taste, whereas the embroidery on each heel tag leaves no equivocal to the style’s ownership. The art of Andy Jenkins has been omnipresent in the skateboard world for over 2 decades. Signing some of skateboarding’s most iconic graphics, from the original “Wrench Pilot” in the early pages of Transworld Skateboarding, to the leader of the Art Dump, Jenkins has had a constant output of work respected and admired by the entire skate community. His take on the Pico relates to his work with a subtle screen print of his famous swirly drawing on the canvas panel of the shoe, adding flare to a sober tri-tone colorway.
