By Maëlle 8/27/2018 3:00 PM

Summer in Paris is the occasion to skate with the Clique during unusual events. Flaneurz collaborates with La REcyclerie and invites you.

 

After the new FARAWAY collection launching at Darwin in Bordeaux, Flaneurz settles for a residency for three evenings into a restored places in Paris, La REcyclerie for “Apéro Patins”

Darwin is an old barrack, restored in an alternative ecosystem. Flaneurz opened a pop-up store during four days, from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 20th of May.

In the same way, La REcyclerie is a renovated station building four years ago. La REcyclerie is an eco-friendly and responsive place which follows the seasons to organize itself. La REcyclerie offers a diversified program about sustainable development and ecology values: canteen, dialogue place, conference and party room.

Flaneurz offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly new mean of transport. Our two entities combine themselves to make you dance this summer in Paris, with skates on your feet.

The entrance is free and you can come with your own skates. Flaneurz makes available its skates stock, such as the event Flaneurz at the W Paris - Opera. Skates rental is at 5€ for the evening (in cash or credit card).

/ROLLER DANCE WORKSHOP

 

A lot of people enter in the Pas Perdus room at La REcyclerie for roller dance workshop before the “ Apero patins ”. To make you practice with confidence this summer in Paris, our collaboration with this responsive place starts with skate basics learning (physical position, braking) and a roller dance initiation.

At 6:30pm, strollers put on their skates to learn the choreography created by Florian Gravier, Flaneurz co-founder and member of SkateXpress roller dance crew. During this workshop, Flaneurz ensures musical atmosphere before artists arrival.

/“APERO PATINS X BORN BAD RECORDS”

 

BORN BAD RECORDS is a contemporary rock label founded in 2006 by Jean-Baptiste Guillot. A big part of label artists are french. They compose different musics and they preach musical revival.

At 6:30pm, the Apero patins starts. You begin to wiggle on Guillaume MARIETTA, JC Vox Low and Forever Pavot tracks. Some of you invest the dancefloor whereas some other prefer taste the cocktails made by La REcyclerie bartender. Never mind you are beginner or seasoned skaters, you ride across the room. Guillaume MARIETTA makes you dance on his raw songs with folk and pop tone. Forever Pavot transports you into his universe, between psychedelic, pop and 70’s cinema scenes. The JC Vox Low duo follows your dances with a disco tainted punk.

During the party, we meet some of you with Flaneurz: Adidas Top Ten, Nike Air Force One, and Veja V-10 Nautico Pekin. For those who do not know us, you discover some detachable “Ready-to-Roll” skates models. Between improvised choreography, crazy dances, and controlled skids, the party was full of emotions.
