We're excited to launch an exclusive interview with CavEmpt designer and co-founder Sk8thing! The chat drops alongside our collaboration with the streetwear brand. With his mysterious public persona and innate understanding of exclusivity, the Japanese designer seldom gives interviews and often appears with his face masked. 'I thought it was more interesting to remain disguised,' he explained to Lou Stoppard, noting the influence of the Phantom of the Opera in his use of secrecy and mystery.
Topics of conversation ranged from building cult brands to the London riots of 2011 and the pros and cons of cultural consumption in the post-internet era. Watch the Sk8thing interview now!
