California-based accessories brand Nixon, with legendary artist C.R. Stecyk III as an accomplice, is proud to announce a Limited Edition collaboration, Nixon x C.R. Stecyk III. This capsule weaponizes street culture’s rebellious creativity, featuring a Special Edition Descender watch, and a camera bag stacked with tactical details and designed by Stecyk himself.
Now, more about the Nixon x C.R. Stecyk III collab. C.R. Stecyk III exists in the shadows, and even when he does slide into the sunlight, it rarely adds clarity. A pioneer of the Dogtown skate ethos, Stecyk has helped shape modern skateboarding in more ways than imaginable: through videos, writing, art installations, and co-founded Juxtapoz Art magazine, among others. A widely-acknowledged street art progenitor, Stecyk’s contributions to the counterculture are so engrained in society that the Smithsonian permanently houses some of his work. He has glyphed the outside of MOMA (univitedly), only decades later asked to hand paint surfboards on exhibit. He also served up Olympic boards at the Obama White House. And then there’s that Rat & Crossbones glyph Stecyk territorially sprayed under a decaying bridge in Venice, which has arguably become one of the most infamous symbols in skateboarding precisely because, like Stecyk, it originated in the shadows.
Nixon x C.R. Stecyk III are continual fans of one another’s brands. Here, they have collaborated on efforts to develop a capsule that was truly inspired by the everyday needs and aesthetics of both.
