Paskho was founded out of a return—far-and-away from the big city, and its inevitable stresses—to the fundamentals. At a time when inspiration wasn’t hitting, I left New York to backpack through Yosemite National Park in California. Experiencing nature on that level—the tactility of the rich earth, the sweeping rain showers, the rocks that cut across the sky like a child’s rip through construction paper—brought it all back. I wanted to create a wholly different type of clothing, combining technology and wanderlust to incite, and excite, the possibility of discovery. Deep-blue glaciers in Nepal, New York’s nonstop energy, an untouched beach in Seychelles, an impromptu caipirinha in Rio de Janeiro, and a mad dash across the expansive Tokyo: Paskho is built to suit the freedom-seeker and the maverick nomadic and the fearless observer, all together.
