Carrots V1 by Anwar Carrots edition Fontaines – is the 7th Fontaine deck by Zach Mueller, produced in collaboration with Carrots by Anwar Carrots streetwear brand. Surprisingly, US-based cardist went for playing cards in-store release at Round Two Hollywood in Los Angeles first, rather than dropping them online. We, December Boys, were in the area and filmed a short video on that day. Remarkably, despite limiting decks to 2 per person, people lined up for a couple of hours in front of the shop until all cards were sold out. Online release has beaten all previous records as well – a limited run of 10,000 ‘carrot’ decks was sold out in 79 minutes.
Joining cardistry and streetwear in a single project has been a longtime dream of Zach. Lining up for limited edition of Supreme clothes in 2011 himself, cardist from LA could only imagine one day dozens of kids would line up for playing cards in the same fashion. Zach Mueller was a Carrots fan since 2013. In September 2016 he met Anwar Carrots in person and offered to create a deck of cards. What happened next is history.
‘To hold this deck, with my logo and the carrots logo, is very surreal’, Zach reveals.
Printed by The United States Playing Card Company using Bicycle stock and Linen Finish. Carrots Fontaines feature orange and dark blue face colourway, unique Jokers and Ace of Spades. There’s also a blank face card inside.
Fontaine Playing Cards joined forces with Anwar Carrots (Carrots clothing brand) and sold out with 2 previous editions.
From the original private stock, we got our hands on Original Carrots V3.
However, there are extremely limited quantities available, and they will NOT be reprint.
Fontaine Carrots v3 are the 14th deck of Fontaine Cards by Zach Mueller, made in collaboration with Carrots by Anwar Carrots.
1 of 2,500 decks printed
Don’t wait…these will NOT last…
Carrots V2 SOLD OUT instantly on 2 separate drops
Carrots V1 SOLD OUT: in 79 min on the Fontaine website
Fontaine Carrots V3 have a mysterious black back design overlayed with the iconic Fontaine “F” pattern and vibrant red carrot outlines.
Incredible style and amazing visuals for any cardist, magician and collector.
How did the Fontaine Playing Card/ Carrot clothing partnership begin?
In September of 2016 I drove to downtown Los Angeles’ Fashion District to meet Anwar Carrots.
As a longtime fan of the Carrots brand, I went to talk streetwear, and give Anwar Fontaines.
I arrived at the last hour on the last day of clothing tradeshow for buyers and distributors. I slept in.
As booths were packing up, I introduced myself to Anwar, showed cardistry, and told him my story.
“Honestly I haven’t met anyone yet at this event I want to work with, except one guy who I might make a 1/1 snowboard with”, Anwar said, pausing.
“Let’s do a deck.”
Joining cardistry and streetwear has been a longtime dream. Lining up at supreme in 2011, I dreamt of a day when kids would line up for playing cards.
I’ve been a fan of Anwar since tumblr, thru PNCintl, and you’ll see me wearing carrots in my videos since 2013. I genuinely love this brand. Anwar and I started working on this collection over 10 months ago. Today Carrots Fontaines are a reality. To hold this deck, with my logo and the carrots logo, is very surreal.
My first collab being with my favorite street wear brand is a dream. Kids lining up at Round Two for a deck of cards is a dream. Making friends in streetwear, learning and getting inspired by Jered Vargas, Mike Cherman, Alex Bortz, Joey Paschette, Bobby Hundreds, Andy Paz, Ryan O’Conner, and Sean Wotherspoon is a dream.
All of these dreams are actually becoming a reality. It’s fucking nuts, and I’m so honored and humbled to be part of it all. This is just the beginning.
