Evan Kinori

Around Midnight

Yoan Taillandier's visual craftsmanship and sharpest fish-eye skills than most is what you can thank for - amongst many other influential video pieces - the first "Minuit" video, as early as 2011 - the underground hit that shook the world, and made refined street skating presented well a focus in the whole Western skate world again, all the while itself being directly influenced by the minutiae of a sophisticated Japanese skate scene. Word on the street is that whoever it is that the relevancy of the aforementioned film may have flown over the head of at the time, due to being spiritually phagocitized by the hottest Californian trends and accustomed to a religion of wooden skatepark-based podcasts, is still trying their best to recreate that video and instill it with just as impactful long-term significancy to this day, and that's eight years later...

Anyway, even though Yoan, the filmer, never really left anywhere himself (as can be attested by his works for clothing brand Futur), this new edit displays the willpower to bring Minuit altogether back in full force, notably by the means of a new series of web clips this piece is the first installment in, so far; consisting in footage filmed from Paris to Italy, going through Marseille and exploring even the cuttiest spots, then consequently experienced by Pat HoblinJames ColemanYaje Popson, Logan Lewis, Yensi Lama and Evan Kinori - more European than ever for the most part, and even in broad daylight, much to our delight!

Better late than never…

Because, well, yes, that new Yoan Taillandier edit is made of footage filmed in San Francisco five years ago, but the great thing about skateboarding, just like for wine, is that it ages well, and even often really well. Well, unless you are on team managing duties… One will notably note what could almost make a full part of James Coleman and his signature powerful yet flowing style.

Maker

You would have met  him, just like us, pushing around the French capitol streets, via the Parisii edits, which he was one of the main alumni for, before having to let him move him back to San Francisco, where he quickly realized his dream of creating clothing that goes a step or two further the yet genius enough concept of slapping a skull of sorts over a t-shirt produced in the Third World… Yes, Evan Kinori is a fashion designer, sailing his little boat in the exact direction he chose. Which does not stop us from being the of skater you would to share a session with, whether in Paris or S.F. as proved here, through the magic eye of Zach Chamberlin

learn way more about Evan, here, thanks to this interview done by our colleagues at Theories!

Parisii / le remix / Magenta homies

Fuck it, it is Easter, so this one is on us! Here is the Magenta part of the Parisii remix. Baby Jesus was dead and came back, or not really, but the only thing we know for sure is friends are forever!

Parisii XVIII

Second to most populated arrondissement of the city, the XVIIIth is a fascinating cocktail, in between highly touristic spots and a social and cultural diversity that surely ranked it quite high amongst the infamous "no go zones" of Fox News… All this actually makes for one of the most representative areas of Paris, for all its contradictions and its richness. Plus, this arrondissement is built on hills, which can only add to it all!
When it comes to Parisii, the XVIIIth is also a mix of sorts, as Greg Dezecot and Olivier Fanchon have decided to invite the new generation along, including its filmers. Expect to see new faces, on spots rarely seen, but all still cooked à la Parisii!
You can follow all Parisii, since the beginning, here.

Fighter

Let's be frank, the ones that remember Evan from his Paris localization days might see him more as a "lover" than a "fighter", but this downtown S.F. clip should get you amped on getting out tonight to sweat it all out!

Magenta SF Connection

Extracted from Tengu, God of Mischief, one of the masterpieces of 2013, the Colin Read independent full length, this edit celebrates the tight connections the Magenta heads have in San Francisco, and must be one of the best part of the video. Enjoy!

Magenta skateboards keep on picking up steam its own way, adding skaters that you would not necessarily expect, but then make absolute sense once they are on… Could that be the key to keep us interested?
