We haven’t had our hands on the gear in person (but we can definitely vouch for the quality of the art), but Billabong, the Australian surf brand, just released an outerwear collection with friend of AJ Chris Burkard, the talented photographer.
Those pieces above, for instance, are printed with a shot Burkie took of braids formed when a glacier melts out and runs into the ocean. The collection includes a shot he took of ice in Greenland, and an Icelandic plateau. I’m not normally a fan of art printed on apparel, but I’d make an exception when it comes to Burkard’s photos.
You can see the rest of the collab collection, here.
