FLASHBACK: Welcome Back Edit

Let’s take it back to 2011 and the “Welcome Back Edit” that Christian contributed to the grip.

Photogallery: Trippin Thru Europe

hboyce_europe_nigel_sylvester

Nigel Sylvester just released his second signature watch with G-Shock and to kick off the launch, Nigel put together a quick tour through Europe, properly titled #Trippinthrueurope. The plan was to start in Tallinn Estonia at Simple Session, then head to London for a few days, from London to Paris, then spend the last weekend in Warsaw, Poland.

The trip consisted of Nigel, his manager Hawaii Mike and myself. The whole thing went by super fast and I’m not sure if we slept for more than three hours each night. We really tried to cram as much in as possible and even though we barely had any time to ride, we had a really great time. Huge thanks to everyone we got to meet up with on the trip and hopefully I’ll get to go back to all of these cities again and spend more time exploring and seeing everyone.

The photos in the gallery are in no particular order. I was filming most of the time and I didn’t get to shoot as many photos as I would have liked, but I did manage to capture a few moments. I shot the most in Warsaw when we spent the day walking around the city. It’s so crazy to me that the entire city of Warsaw was completely destroyed in World War II. So tragic.

Hope you enjoy the photos and keep an eye out for a video from the trip. Big thanks to Nigel and Hawaii Mike for such a great trip!

Joseph Dirand Architecture

Joseph Dirand Architecture is an architecture and interior design firm based out of Paris. I stumbled across their work wile doing an image hunt for Balmain stuff and was drawn into the flagship store that they design for the brand in Paris. The interiors combine a great mix of minimal and luxury and have been keeping me inspired for days. I’m also really loving the photography on their site which was shot by photographer Adrien Dirand.

Xavier Encinas

Xavier Encinas is a designer and photographer based out of Paris with a wonderful minimal aesthetic. It’s interesting how much presentation plays into showcasing your design work, and in the case of Xavier, he’s go the presentation down pat. Not only does he have great work to show, he works with great people (like AndrĂ© Pinces) to help him show it. With clients like Nike and The Lab Magazine and an emphasis on print design, Xavier Encinas’s work is definitely worth a look.

JR / Paris

I just came across the video above, which features JR (and company) doing his thing in Paris. This edit just surfaced recently, but the installation/exhibit/expo is from September 2009. Still new to me though.

I’d freak out if I woke up one morning and saw something like this on my morning commute, haha.
