Who:

Samuel Wilken, 188 cm / 6’2″, American, born December 22nd.

Why:

Coloradan skateboard Samuel struck it lucky a few weeks ago when he was approached by agent Jordan Morris whilst out skating in NYC. A visual artist and talented musician with endless cool cred, it was no surprise then that Samuel was booked on semi-exclusive for the Helmut Lang and Coach 1941 shows at NYFW. We wonder where this wunderkind will land next!

We Asked:

What are your interests/favorite things?
“I’ve been involved in the underground music and arts scene since I was 15.

I’ve always loved skateboarding, music and the arts and I’m fortunate enough to be in a place where all three intersect. ”
