Simon Skinner Debuts Uniquely Designed "Syntax" Afropick Collection

(in reference to his mother braiding his hair) 
"Those moments were special to me.  Not only because of the love and connection we shared, but also because of the pride and tradition that the ritual carried.  I don't know how I could feel the depth that young, but I think it says something about black hair culture and the intimacy of it."
- Simon Skinner to VOGUE Scandinavia

 Swedish Designer Simon Skinner is sharing a black hair experience artistically through a specific hair tool.  The collection named "Syntax" refers to the visual language where different signs affect each other.  Skinner had trouble finding design led Afro picks in his home base of Stockholm, Sweden.  Today, he has Afro picks collected by the Swedish National Museum for Design Prosperity.  

 These uniquely designed combs not only explore the beauty ritual, but also the cultural identity. The eight-piece handmade "Syntax" collection is available now at
