i never had the stuff but based on ns hype it sounds sick
So seriously, what happened to Siver Cartel? And will it ever return?
-What happened is that Siver was running side by side with Orage and unintentionally the two brands began to compete with one another. With the benefit of hindsight, maybe some steps could have been taken to insure the success of both brands but at that stage in the game the owners of the company felt it was a smarter move to put the Siver project on hold to focus and move forward with the larger of the two brands. At that point they offered me a position at Orage and the rest is history. And I’m OK with that, Siver is still a part of my legacy but I have no hard feelings about the decision… that’s business and the bottom line is that if I didn’t believe in the Orage brand and the people who were running it at that time I wouldn’t still be here today.
As far as Siver making a comeback, you never know. I’d love to see it happen and I’m sure it would be successful. I can’t even begin to tell you how many random stories from random people I hear on a regular basis about Siver and where it went and how cool it was and will it ever come back. It’s cool to know that the brand made an impact and still remains relevant. This past winter I saw someone wearing Siver every day I was on the hill. Everywhere from Stowe to Aspen to Whistler to France. It was crazy.
What about a Siver Cartel collection from Orage?
- I’d personally shy away from that. The brand can stand alone and should stand alone if it does make a comeback. Orage is Orage and Siver is Siver. Brands have the ability to coexist; there are plenty of companies who have proven that. We’ll just have to wait and see.
