January 2017 (Santa Cruz, California) The Giro Sport Design 2018 Snow Capsule Collection has evolved from a 30-year history of connecting and collaborating with outside artists and influencers. For next winter, Giro has worked with Art Sempre, bigtruck, Protect Our Winters, Sub Pop Records & Kryptek to produce five unique collections of collaborative helmet and goggle lock-ups that reflect the partnerships’ shared cultural similarities — whether it is a penchant for free thinking, unbridled creativity or a passion for the ride.

While the Capsule Collection offerings for 2018 are limited editions exclusive to this season, the connection between Giro and the collaborator is long-lived.

“The 2018 capsule collection is a great offering and something unique for specialty retailers,” said Brendan Murphey, Giro Senior Brand Manager. This year there is lots of balance and excitement, like the crazy color and psychedelic look of the Art Sempre products and a fellow northern Californian brand, bigtruck, with similar values and allows putting fun first. The POW Collection gives back and supports what we love – snow, mountains & winter… and riding powder. Lots of us grew up with the Sub Pop label, listening to the iconic and modern day bands now is such a throw-back. To combine these unique products, graphics and cultural stories with our game-changing new VIVID lens technology… the future is bright!” 

GIRO x ART SEMPRE

Translating into “Art Always,” Arte Sempre was founded in Mill Valley, California in 2010 and aims to make art accessible on products that are used in the field by its creators. These functional accessories use pattern work that represents a global unity through art, mashing textiles patterns inspired from eclectic cultures, to show the connective power of art. Arte Sempre is all about bringing art into action, finding style not only in the studio of the artist, but also in the way you carve a line on a snowboard. It is about a unity and resonance with nature at the most core level. Learn more at artesempre.com
