Graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009 and named the No. 1 Design Talent in the Netherlands by Volkskrant in 2015, Lex Pott’s artistic aesthetic focuses on the elemental nature of the materials he uses. With a preference for raw materials such as wood, stone and metal, Potts’ range of creative output extends from fine art into the subject of functional and modern design. A collaboration that debuted at Pop Trading Company’s 2021 B.Y.O.B.S.S. event, this capsule includes a selection of co-designed apparel and accessories, with a custom sticker pack and an assortment of curled skateboarding waxes inspired by Potts’ own curation of curved candles.

Sharing a similar tactile undertone as the brand’s recent collaboration with artist and designer Gilles de Brock - a capsule inspired by de Brocks’ custom ceramic tiles, Pop Trading Company’s passion for artistic innovation extends across similar texture orientated collaborations including their three-part Vans Style 36, Chukka Pro and Agah shoe series with the renowned skateboarding brand from 2018 and their ‘Dragonskin’ Pop Trading Company x Converse CONS Jack Purcell release from 2020.
