Philippe Petit for Supreme

In the Active Department, we definitely keep an eye on what Mr. Jake Davis is up to. He is a New York City taste, film and move maker. You may have seen his work and not even realized it (we love his Test Shots series). His client list is impressive, and it includes some of the brands that we look to for inspiration and direction.

Recently, Davis was called on by Supreme to direct a short film based on Philippe Petit. Petit is the famed French daredevil that walked between the Twin Towers on a tight rope in 1974. No big deal. There are have been a number of books and even a film published about this stunt, but no one has filmed Petit so simply…on a tightrope…in NYC…reliving the moment. Enjoy and have a Happy Holiday Weekend!
