Adam Kimmel Presents Claremont

This is the most insane thing ever. Fashion designer Adam Kimmel teamed up with photographer Ari Marcopoulos to create a video showcasing some new suits created by Kimmel… or at least I’m pretty sure that’s what happened. Anyhow, instead of doing something funny or artsy, Ari got a couple of guys to dress up in the suits and longboard down a CRAZY HUGE hill!

This video is absolutely nuts. They could easily be going 40, 50, 60 mph? And the fact that this isn’t a closed road or anything is horrifying, especially when you see them carving all over the road. If they fell, they’d seriously lose all the skin on whatever part that landed first! Definitely watch the video, at the very least to see how they stop! haha…

You can also find Ari Marcopoulus’ blog on Arkitip here, and here’s a Tiny Vices he did as well.

    That was mad as hell! The part where they carve bacside around a corner really close to the right side of the road, I was thinking “What if there was a car parked around the corner?”… Smashing into something at such great speed would destroy you. No doubt that these guys must have the best reflexes and biggest balls in history!… It kind of takes focus away from the clothes when you get sucked into the action, but in the end it is good viral marketing…
