LIMITED EDITION NO. 08 ESCAPADE LINE-UP. AVAILABLE NOW!
For their newest limited edition artist series, Opinel has teamed up with Jérémy “Les Aiguilles de Dje” Groshens, a 29-year-old French tattoo artist. Traveling between the mountains of his native Alsace and the Basque coast, Jérémy takes his art on the road, working from a 1972 Digue camper-turned-mobile workshop and tattoo parlor called the Outdoor Tattoo Truck.Shop Now
Jérémy’s illustrations are inspired by the landscapes, flora and fauna, and pleasures of the great outdoors, and he shares this love with those he meets along his travels through meticulous and evocative tattoos.
For this collection, Opinel decided to work with Jérémy on a specific theme: “Getaway,” the desire to take off on an adventure, and to delight in the beauty of nature. Three limited edition knives came out of this partnership - the Azimut, Bivouac and Elevation.
“Azimut” revisits the artistic potential of mountain cartography. The contour lines that decorate the handle and black blade trace a relief map of the Aiguilles d’Arves, a mountain located in Savoie, France that is part of the Maurienne range, the birthplace of Opinel.Shop Now
“Bivouac” combines the language of tattoos with that of the outdoors. Its traditional patchwork design weaves together various pieces of equipment and iconic alpine plants in an artistic style that blends fine outlines and pointillism.Shop Now
“Elevation” is inspired by Japanese prints that pay homage to landscapes and sacred places. A vision of those summits, frozen for just one moment in all their majesty, is recreated in a minimalistic style with fluid lines, blocks of color and subtle shading.Shop Now
