It Is About Time : Normal Hell

This one's for cycling enthusiasts: Hell is around the corner once again, and the good folks at Pas Normal Studios have a special drop releasing at Steel in Paris tomorrow - called "Road To Nowhere". Based on a poem by Jørgen Leth, it has a Supreme-ish vibe and looks fairly dope...

Exclusive launch event of the Road to Nowhere collection in Collaboration with Jørgen Leth.

A modern tribute to the words of one of cycling’s greatest narrators. We have made an exclusive collaboration with film director and poet Jørgen Leth, emphasizing our key theme: “Road to Nowhere”, through the words of one of his original poems about riding.

We wanted to work with graphic elements of Leth’s iconic writing and placed it in the context of a Pas Normal Studios design. It is our way of bringing to life some of the most intriguing writing about being on the bike. In a lot of ways, Leth’s poetry has been the birth of coolness when it comes to cycling narrative and expressing the mysteries of how we feel when we ride. We are proud to work with one of our great heroes and a true icon of contemporary filmmaking for this limited edition.

Jørgen Leth and Pas Normal Studios’ Artistic Director Karl Oskar Olsen will both be attending the launch.

Join us for drinks and snacks and check out the new collection.
