The first Paccbet collection features skateboards, hoodies, tees and caps, all designed by Titaev and, like the rest of Gosha’s work, produced by Commes des Garcons. Speaking to Dazed, Titaev described the collection as "clothes to skate in. It’s mean streetwear I think", he also said that the pair had tried to make skateboards in the past but "every time it was a disaster and we never managed to finish the projects".
Paccbet is the second label to launch under the Gosha Rubchinskiy banner. A couple of months ago, Gosha also oversaw the debut collection by DOUBLECHEESEBURGERVF, otherwise known as Valentin Fufaev. 2016, then, has seen Gosha bring in and support new designers and labels through his own success. Over the past couple of years, Gosha has quickly risen to becoming one of the most important menswear designers. Under the patronage of the Comme des Garcons empire, he's exhibited at Pitti Uomo in Florence, he's shot lookbooks for Supreme, and he's caused some of the biggest queues in Dover Street Market's history.
Both Fufaev and Titaev are Russian skaters, and are part of the scene that Gosha has spent his career celebrating. Launching their collections under his own brand is the latest step in giving the Russian skate scene the credit it deserves, and giving the limelight to the next generation.
