Rowing Blazers x Babar Ski
Our newest collaboration with Babar is a ski-inspired capsule based on the 1966 book Babar Fait du Ski.
Ever since Babar first took to the slopes in Babar Fait du Ski, his alpine adventures have delighted generations of readers. The book’s typically lush illustrations by Laurent de Brunhoff - along with Babar’s own unique style depicted therein - provide the inspiration behind the collection.
From Rowing Blazers founder, Jack Carlson: “Some of my favorite Babar illustrations are those of Babar skiing. I’ve wanted to produce a Babar ski capsule for a long time, both creating ski and après pieces emblazoned with the illustrations, as well as recreating pieces from the books themselves, like Babar’s geometric ski jumper, matching mittens, and his red hat with the ear flaps (how were they supposed to cover his elephant ears anyway?). That’s what we’ve done in this collection, and it’s one of my favorite collections we’ve ever produced!”
