Burton Parties in the Penthouse
The heroes of Marvel Comics arrived alongside the villains of Star Wars to help kick off the latest Burton Snowboards party in honor of their 2014 lines. The penthouse of Milk New York was transformed into an alcohol sloshed soiree, complete with a boot bedazzling station and ice cream cocktails. Guests danced around racks of Burton’s latest collaborations with L.A.M.B., Red Wing and Bionic to tunes by DJ’s Jasmine Solano and Queen Majesty.
The coolest snowboards and soon to become relics of Burton memorabilia were the Easy Livin’ snowboard adorned by the face of Jimi Hendrix, and the limited edition Salt and Peppa snowboard. The rappers likeness was thrown onto a Burton board in collaboration with Life Beat, a non-profit dedicated to creating awareness and raising funds in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The guest list included Jake Burton himself, legendary photographer Ricky Powell, Roofeeo of TV on the Radio, Victoria’s Secret model Toni Garrn , Keith Hufnagel and the HUF skate team and many, many more.
