LUCIEN CLARKE SCORES A LOUIS VUITTON SPONSORSHIP
When you think of skating sponsorships, you think of a few brands more than likely. Vans has a pretty expensive team. There are Nike skaters and Converse skaters. When you see somebody down at the skatepark, there are a handful of brands you wouldn’t be surprised to see them rocking. How about Louis Vuitton, though? Yes, the luxury brand. Guess what? They’ve gotten into the skating world as well. Louis Vuitton has announced they have decided to sponsor their first-ever skater, Lucien Clarke.
That’s right, Clarke is sponsored by Louis Vuitton now. In fact, he already has a signature shoe for the brand. According to Virgil Abloh, who is art directing everything for Clarke, the skater got free reign to design his shoe. Also, they’ve apparently been filming clips for a year. Yes, soon enough we will be seeing Clarke skate parts from Louis Vuitton. This is a wild world we live in.
