Miles Davis + Bitches Brew Style Skate Decks = Very Cool

These are so kick-ass. I would put them right beside Western Edition’s equally awesome Miles 59′ Quintet series.

The Bitches Brew collection is limited to 100 sets of four decks each, and is a part of Western Edition’s Spring/Summer 2012 line.

It is beyond rare when a collaboration presents such a meaningful display of each others passions, talents, and legacies in a form so natural and yet so surprisingly distinct.

Commissioned by Miles Davis for his landmark album “Bitches Brew”, inspired artist Mati Klarwein created this painting for the album’s cover. With the support of Klarwein’s family, led by his son Balthazar who happens to be a respectable skater, Western Edition is proud to introduce “The Bitches Brew” capsule collection.

The highlight of the collection includes a four deck series integration of the album’s cover art. The symmetry of the painting is displayed by having both top and bottom graphics on each deck, the light portion on the bottom and the corresponding dark portion on the top. Please visit Mati Klarwein’s new website (www.matiklarweinart.com) to see the full spectrum of the artist’s portfolio and a biography.
