Skateboard Cafe have blessed us with yet another amazing drop, this time bringing back some well-known graphics, as well as a wide range of new designs across decks, tees, hoods and crews.
Carrying on their tradition of using frames from cult films as graphics, Skate Cafe have come out swingin' with not one, but two, graphics dedicated to classic action film The Warriors. The 'Play' graphic features the film's titular Warriors - everyone's second favourite New York Gang, after LurkNYC - whilst the 'Coney' graphic features a moody shot of the iconic Wonder Wheel; both of which are available in T-Shirts and Decks. But if you wanna 'come out to playyyyy' you better move quick because this one ain't gonna be around for long.
Keeping it classic again, Skate Cafe have brought back their ever-popular Trumpet Logo in Decks, T-Shirts and Hoodies. This simple but effective design is proper stylish and is guaranteed to make people think that you're into jazz, instantly making you appear like a massive legend. This design also goes hand-in-hand with the equally jazzy 'Keys' graphic, if you really want to double down on demonstrating your quirky music taste - or if you're more of a Duke Ellington than a Miles Davis and you just prefer pianos, then the 'Keys' graphic might be the one for you.
Alongside these classic offerings, Skate Cafe have balanced tradition with innovation, delivering a wide range of new designs whilst still keeping their iconic style. The 'Flower Basket' series offers a new graphic - a push-bike with the basket overflowing with flowers in a hand-drawn style - whilst still maintaining the theme of some of their designs from previous runs. This particular series is noticeably less macho than a lot of the graphics released by most brands, suggesting that Skate Cafe are paying close attention to the seemingly unstoppable rise of the female skate scene in the UK (rise up sisters!) and making sure that everyone's tastes are catered for. This isn't something you see very much of in the skate industry so it's definitely a sign of the changes skateboarding is undergoing, but regardless, big respect to Skate Cafe for making sure there's something for everyone.
