we know how addictive it is to create beautiful things that people will appreciate and perhaps, this is what spurs GREG Hervieux of BKRW to create yet another awesomely gorgeous skateboard deck. we have seen the beautiful GREG Hervieux x Domeau & Pérès Leather Skateboard Deck that GREG has presented to the world a couple of months ago and now he is back with a collaboration with Atelier PALOMARES for this stunning gold leaf skate deck.
working with Atelier Antoine PALOMARES, GREG has given the skateboard a midas touch in the form of 22 carats gold leaf finish. the gold leafing process is done by none other than Atelier Antoine PALOMARES who has five generations of experience in the gold leaf process under its belt and is widely considered as the world’s finest craftsmen. as beautiful as it looks, this fine example is not without its fragility, and hence it is protected from touches by a transparent plexiglass box. the gold leaf is very delicate and thus any contact with fingers would leave a very bad oxidizing trace. therefore it is the best interest for it to be kept within this beautiful crystal frame that allows appreciation of its beauty for years to come.
obviously, this skateboard deck isn’t meant for you to use on the street but rather, it is a display of how two worlds meet: where the French luxury and savoir-faire meets the street culture. the Greg Hervieux x Atelier PALOMARES GOLD Skate has an extremely limited run of just 5 units and is available for €1,490 (about US$2,142). more information on how to order this exquisite skateboard deck is available on BKRW website.
