Continuing the worldwide launch of the Skytop III, SUPRA Footwear invaded London last Friday for an event held at the House of St. Barnabas. The event drew a large crowd of what was described as an "eclectic mix of skaters, actors, artists, models and retailers," all coming together for the singular purpose of celebrating the launch of the Skytop III.
The SUPRA Skytop III launch event must have been the talk of the town, because it was filled to capacity within an hour and no additional persons were granted access without the departure of another individual. Relentless in their desire to be part of the celebration, partygoers on the outside began scaling the walls of the house to get a glimpse of the action, prompting officials to draw the shutters. Fortunately for those waiting to get in, many attendees were asked to leave during the event for behavior unbecoming. Over the span of four hours, approximately 80 guests were asked to leave, an average of one person every three minutes.
Much like the Paris event held earlier, house custodians weren't exactly thrilled by the raucous party crowd. SUPRA, on the other hand, was very excited. The turnout for these launch events has been excellent, and as we noted earlier today, Los Angeles is up next.
Check out this detailed photo recap of the London event, including a look at a challenging Skytop III-constructed version of the Union Jack.
