W Hotels New York has come together with STOKED.org to commission a series of skateboards featuring designs from Amar’e Stoudemire and David LaChapelle, among others. The collection, with the help of curator Ray Mendez, has been assembled as a tribute to New York City‘s eclecticism.
The W Room And Boards Series, which also includes contributions from model Cara DeLevigne, street artist Cope2, and designer Zana Bayne, is now available for purchase online with decks starting at $500 and limited graphic prints for $50. All proceeds from the event will go to STOKED.org to assist in their efforts toward the embetterment of the urban youth community.
The launch event will be held on June 26th with music by Ninjasonik. Watch a promo video about Ninjasonik and the event below–
