The indelible Lurker Lou is back with another conceptual project. He’s teamed up with Crown Height’s Park Deli skate and flower shop on a capsule collection and video, which represent the intersection of his fine art and skateboarding. The product utilizes an image of an all-but-forgotten N.Y.C public schools delivery system that Lou has repurposed for four wheels. And the edit draws inspiration from Danny Supa’s 411 Wheels of Fortune from Issue 23—the Dr. Octagon song is a solid choice for obvious reasons. Check the visual above. The shirt and hoodie are available now via Park Deli. The deck is delayed due to COVID production issues. But you can preorder now if you’d like to cop.

Our artist collaborator for FW2020 is Brooklyn based artist and skateboarder “Lurker Lou” Sarowsky. Much like Park Deli, Lou has always approached skateboarding his way. Rather than skateparks, Lou prefers to find things to skate that most people would overlook. Our collaboration concept focuses on one of those types of spots. The subject of our photo was originally used as a delivery system for NYC public schools and is now largely obsolete. It is a bridge where Lou’s art and his skateboarding come together. Sadly, the deck for this collaboration is still in production. Due to the pandemic and factory shutdowns the skateboarding industry has not been able to keep up with the demand. We are offering the deck as preorder. They will ship as soon as they arrive.
