When London boy Lucien Clarke has a signature shoe to launch, you know that not only is his crew gonna be representing, but the event is gonna get lit. And that’s exactly how it went down at the launch of his take on the Supra Quattro.
The shoe itself is a homage to his Palace skate crew, the Palace Wayward Boys Club. Starting life as a name for his group of skating friends who partied and lived together, it has quickly come to represent the cream of British skating, featuring Lev Tanju, Stuart Hammond, Blondey McCoy, Guy Riza, Mekka, Louis Slater et al.
Lucien said he wanted his colourway on this Quattro to reflect the lifestyle of the PWBC; gully and understated during the day, and then coming to life at night – and with the 3M hits round the laces and heel, this colourway really does “reflect” the values of PWBC 😉
The launch party brought together the things closest to Lucien – skating, footwear, PWBC, and family. It was held at London’s 71a Gallery near Old Street, and was essentially a private view of the PWBC Retrospective exhibition, featuring photography from James Edson and Daniel ‘Snowy’ Kinloch.
As the drinks flowed, it got more and more rowdy, and before long, it was time to move on to the afterparty at Barden’s Boudoir in Dalston. As echoed in his Quattro, it was now time to really come to life!
