“For the launch of our two new hoodies, we were imagining guys skating in kilts, long skirts and djellabas. (…)
And even though we aren’t sell- ing any kilts, skirts or djella- bas, we would like to encourage everyone who wants to wear them to do it. “
A short film shot with photographer Sophie Ebrard on 16mm Kodak film during the hot summer days in Amsterdam.

“In a warehouse on Refshaleøen island, Copenhagen, a chorus of clattering is being produced by hacked-together machinery. Finishing some work on a still, Lars Williams, a muscular man distinguishable by his tattoos, jumps down. Over the past eight years, Williams ran The Nordic Food Lab, the research and development facility founded by chef René Redzepi of the Copenhagen restaurant Noma. It was at Noma that Redzepi, through his obsession with flavour, foraging and sustainability, helped spark the movement that explores food being an expression of its native ingredients and local environment. When Noma closed for refurbishment, Williams switched his focus to alcohol.”

Paris Nord and the french humanitarian medical organization Medecins Sans Frontieres started collaborating in November 2016, for a fundraising campaign for which MSF decided to partner with independent brands & creators.
In september 2018 in order to continue to collect donations and support the independence of MSF, Paris Nord re-edit the orange and black Calais Nord sweatshirt dedicated to the refugee of Calais.
These symbolic colours refer to the life-vests worn by refugees during their crossing of the mediterranean sea. There are also the colours of the Refugee Nation’s flag, designed by the artist Yara Said, Syrian refugee now living in Amsterdam. With this sweatshirt, paris Nord makes a commitment to a cause close to its heart and will redistribute the integrality of the sales benefits to MSF.

Ongoing project about photographing the people living on this planet.
“Look, we’ve all seen Men In Black, and we all are aware, therefore, that there are aliens knocking about on this planet. Okay – maybe we’re not there quite yet, but what if that’s because we haven’t advertised Earth as an amazing vacation destination?
While this series is designed to encourage more of that sweet, sweet extra-terrestrial tourism, it might be worth seeing it as an invitation to enjoy more of what makes our planet great and to try and preserve those things.”
Directed and shot 90’s VHS commercials featured throughout the 6 episodes of the show.
Full show directed by Mackenzie Sheppard
“Here is a quick, but vital question: Have we as a society come to an official consensus on the idea of aliens visiting Earth?”
