Huf collaborated with Nagel and brought to you a very limited and officially licensed collection commemorating the American artist Patrick Nagel (1945-1984). He created popular illustrations on board, paper, and canvas, most of which emphasize the simple grace and beauty of the female form in iconic style that descended from the Art Deco movement.
The Huf X Nagel Collection consists of two skateboard decks: the Huf X Nagel Collar deck is an 8.25 with a foil print and The Huf x Nagel Reveal skateboard deck. Most will find their ways onto walls rather than skated, but if you do decide to skate one, it's a high quality deck produced by DLXSF.
The most involved and bold piece in the collection is the Huf x Nagle Reversible Satin Jacket featuring the Reveal print sublimated on the back of the red side. The reverse black satin side is much more subdued, but still has an element of fun with lavender cuffs. This young lady sure wears it well.
If $190 satin jackets aren't your thing, They did some more everyday wearable pieces like a Huf x Nagel lavender 6 panel hat. also available in a grey 6 panel featuring the collar image on a satin patch. Not a hat guy, but like the Nagel aesthetic? The Huf x Nagel Collar tee in dusty blue is soft enough to wear in any setting. While the colors and image may be a bit bold, the Huf x Nagel Television tee in lavender would kit perfectly with the satin jacket or stand alone.
For those feeling the blues because of all the male sized items can always grab a Huf x Nagel Lapel Enamel Pin set featuring the Television and Collar image or The Huf x Nagel Socks with the Blind fold image or the collar image.
Huf Worldwide's collaboration has something for anyone who loves Patrick Nagel's artwork. His Iconic imagery has been copied, parodied, bitten, and ripped off. It's rad to see a skateboard brand take interest in doing it right with respect to the artist and his work.
