Pairing personal style with international surf travel, Australian tastemaker Dion Agius and sister Jenna introduce the duo’s latest retail project, curating eclectic one-off homewares from far away corners of the world. Sold exclusively online, CNTNR offers customers an ever evolving collection of Agius’ unexpected finds from trip to global trip – collected in a container, shipped to the Gold Coast and sold direct through the brand’s Instagram, Facebook and Gmail accounts. Featuring hand picked wares from recent North American road trips, CNTNR’s initial debut includes patriotic memorabilia, American-Indian inspired textiles, vintage apparel, Middle-America deer antlers, leather boxing gloves, intricately hand stitched bags and more. Check out images from Agius’ last American road trip and some of his related pickups below. Stay up on CNTNR here or follow on Instagram at @CNTNR.
Following up on Globe’s well received middle eastern surf film, ELECTRIC BLUE HEAVEN, featured surfer Dion Agius and best friend/filmmaker Beren Hall leak a cutting room edit aptly titled POOL SCRAPS. Sans the orignal’s yellow Lamborghini and arid desert B-roll, the video features unseen Agius airs, even more sprawling Russian models and a never ending lineup of the world’s finest man made waves. Shot on location at the Al Ain Surf Park, 90 miles southwest of Dubai’s city center, the video runs just over 4 minutes with soundtrack by Gil Scott-Heron.
