While many of us are familiar with Carhartt WIP thanks to their workwear-inspired style. Today the brand returns, going back to 2018 to release its documentary, ‘Soul Skate.’ The video aims to provide insight into the annual four-day Detroit roller skating festival. The documentary was made in partnership with Dazed Digital, NTS Radio, and directed by Ramone Anderson. Along the way, we take a look into the Kenny Dixon Jr. event and the roller-skating subculture.
‘Soul Skate’ provides a look into various crews coming together from around the world. We find small interviews with skaters as they speak about what the event means to them. The ‘Soul Skate’ event culminates in a Saturday night skate-marathon that lasts from 11 PM to 5 AM. Here skaters of all ages head to the rink to showcase their style. The documentary also takes a look into the cultural and political history of roller skating in Detroit.
Check out the full documentary in the stream below and find out more from Carhartt WIP. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more skate, style, and entertainment coming very soon.
