Willy Daro is a Belgian designer. No more info to be found on the web about him, except for his work: Made in the seventies of the previous century, on sale at various auctions, vintage and design web-shops. Guess we’ll head on to the library to find more info in some books……
Bianca Chandon. is a label created by New York based skateboarder Alex Olson. For us, (non skaters, maybe Alex Olsen is a very well known skater?) it’s a mysterious label, it carries t-shirts and skate board decks, 3 items in total at the moment, which are all sold out in the webshop, but Bianca Chandon has 18 stockist worldwide. Nothing much else to be found, Bianca Chandon is very exclusive! We were not only attracted by the name Bianca Chandon but also to the retro seventies feel of the brand and the Blonde Deck in particular.
