Ricky Saiz is a lover not a fighter. More importantly, he’s a lovely spirit we all adore having seen him grow up in the creative circles of New York City. His main gig is serving as one of the head designers for Supreme — the epicenter of the skate scene in New York, as well as a respected clothing label worldwide. The other designer is Brendan Babenzien, who we’ll feature at a later date. This month, their campaign for Supreme with Lady Gaga has hit the streets and the internet— spreading like wildfire with one of the most loyal fan bases from New York to Japan.

It was a 5 day race spanning 5 cities in the world — New York, London, Milan, Berlin, and Paris — all leading up to World Cup.
It was an epic journey in response to a health crisis. Staffer Laura Nolte comments on the day Team Standard ran. Another team that ran was Standard collaborators & guest bloggers Saturdays Surf Shop.
