Celebrating Osklen’s Pirarucu Skin Accessories & Exhibition at The Surf Lodge

On September 3, The Surf Lodge celebrated the exhibition “A21 | Practice #1” with Osklen and Gary Clark, Jr. in Montauk, New York. The event featured a reveal of Osklen’s Pirarucu fish skin accessories, a collection that included shoes, bags, and even surfboards. Guests included Jayma Cardoso, Nicole Trunfio, Shea Marie, Caroline Vreeland, Peter Brant Jr., Rocky Barnes, Tracy Anderson, Jenne Lombardo, Alex Soros, Danielle Snyder, Maxwell Osborne, Roger Waters, and Nazare Metsavaht.

Pirarucu fish is widely consumed in Brazil, with its skin often delegated to waste. Osklen’s Oskar Metsavaht found a way to repurpose the material in a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable way. A protected species in the Amazon, the fish is farmed responsibly, stabilizing the local food supply and economy — with farmers achieving a 40% higher production rate over cattle raising on a similarly sized plot of land.

A fête of art and fashion, the exhibition offers a look at Metsavaht’s elements of style and unique take on “the new luxury” and was on view through September 6.
