Pierre André Senizergues: The Man Behind the Brand

Pierre André Senizergues (PAS) is a world champion professional skateboarder and the mastermind behind skateboard footwear and apparel brand Sole Technology -- the parent company of etnies, eS, Emerica, ThirtyTwo, and Altamont Apparel. Inspired by the streets, slopes, and ocean, PAS launched re-used t-shirt line WWP exclusively for high-end boutiques in Paris, France -- including Collette -- and expanded into the furniture design space with Skate Study House -- a skate inspired furniture line, with you-guessed-it recycled skateboards.
Collection Pierre André Senizergues (C PAS): Recycled Cassette Tape Tuxedo As MuseCollection Pierre André Senizergues (C PAS) was created soon after PAS appeared on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival in May 2007. As the executive producer for Leonardo DiCaprio's 11th Hour, PAS was in need of an eco-conscious tuxedo to suit his style. He created a custom tuxedo with Designer Pierluigi Pucci, in a fabric made with recycled cassette tapes, organic wool, and lined with t-shirt fabric left over from his other brands. The tuxedo (coat shown above) served as a muse for C PAS and a statement to innovative fashion. He officially teamed up with Pierluigi Pucci and launched C PAS which is currently available in stores in France, Japan, and shop by appointment in the United States.
