ETNIES PAS COLLECTION: THE NEXT 25
It’s etnies 25th birthday and Pierre-Andre Senizergues is celebrating all around the world with his latest signature collection which features his original pro model, the Senix. For this collection, Pierre-Andre drew inspiration from four major cities that have influenced not only his skating, but consequently the evolution of etnies: Paris, France; Hong Kong, China; Vancouver, Canada and Los Angeles, California. He also hand-picked exclusive retailers who have long been supporters of etnies in each key city: colette (Paris); Double Park (Hong Kong), Livestock (Vancouver) and Blends (Los Angles). Looking to the future at what the NEXT 25 years hold, we explore unexpected materials, laser-etching and a production process offset for a completely carbon neutral collection worth celebrating!
One of the world’s most beautiful cities, Paris boasts incredible classical architecture. The SENIX SPIRE offers a new perspective on the Eiffel Tower with a deconstructed, almost extra-terrestrial, yet somewhat tribal design in its intricate laser-etching.
Even from a distance, Hong Kong's skyline shows that Chinese culture is full modern and futuristic design that embraces the simplistic structure of their ancient art forms. In this same spirit, the SENIX VILLE silhouette is a full-grain leather, dressier low-top with laser-etched electronic lines, which subtly mimic the shape of the Senix side panels, yet bring new dimension.
Breathtaking mountains provide the backdrop of the modern city of Vancouver and the inspiration for PAS's rugged combat boot-inspired skate shoe. Premium leather, ballistic nylon for extra durability and all the bells and whistles you'd expect, SENIX VENTURE is a juxtaposition just like its city – where nature meets the street. Inside the boot cuff you'll find an illustration of the cityscape and mountains.
Exploring where the future may take us, the SENIX HERO delivers a concept shoe inspired by a surf booty that takes you out of the water into the city streets of Los Angeles. Classic neoprene surf material mixed with sneaker aesthetics create a new kind of urban comfort. Like the city lights at night, a highly reflective material illuminates the grid lines. The SENIX HERO is offered in three colorways: Red, White and Blue.
The full collection is now available exclusively at Livestock (Vancouver, Canada), colette (Paris, France), Blends (Los Angeles, California) and Double Park (Hong Kong, China).
