THE DESIGN Telling the narrative about the fall, and rise, of the P.O.P. The Ruins to Roses range takes a counter-approach to the destruction, claiming that it was the downfall of the P.O.P that led to its true purpose. The P.O.P was the pride of Venice Beach in its prime and was commissioned for demolition in May 1970 soon after the largest fire that the precinct had ever seen. After this, the pier was commissioned to be destroyed but laid dormant with blackened timber for a number of years.The pier was a graveyard of broken dreams and family memories that led to new world of youth with an apocalyptic desire to skate and surf harder than anyone else.It is the blackened and burnt timber of the pier that is the inspiration behind this range. The black oak represents the rawness of burnt timbers contrasted against the gold pinstripe of what was once the glitz of California. The black oak exotic veneer is contrasted with the gold print and components that would have once emulated the glamour of the Aragon Ballroom (Cheetah Club) that inevitably lead to the piers destruction.
