Greenjacket LE8 : Rise Up

Astral Currently (50 min. ago) - This fresh new vest is a collaboration between ASTRAL’s design team, pro athlete Evan Garcia, and artist Walker Howard Regarding the influence for the LE8, Evan explained Ive always loved the Rasta lion style, and that is the theme of our media company ‘Substantial Media House’ so I wanted to get a unique spin on the lion and mix that with some water for obvious reason. The condor and mountains came from the crazy amount of time I’ve spent in Chile it was just some ideas I had that I knew Walker would be able to run with.  read more...
