Nikita ‘Sideway Sistas’ book!

Posted on: March 23, 2009


The story of girls who ride

Not only will Nikita be celebrating a special 10 year anniversary in 2010, we will also be producing and publishing a 200 page coffee table book made largely from material sent in by Nikita girls from all over the world.


The project begins now and it begins here!  The book will celebrate and portray the lifestyle of the Nikita girl; in photos, words, poems, graphics and art, or in any other creative way possible.  The scrapbook style will be raw and graphic based, edited by an Icelandic local, Thordis Claessen.  She has been a lifetime Nikita customer, snowboarder, skater, graphic designer and has already produced her own book, Icepick, about the Icelandic street art scene, that Nikita helped publish nearly two years ago.  


Along with stories, people and pictures from the depths of Nikita’s archives, Nikita would like to dedicate the rest of the content to all girls who ride.  Grab the opportunity to tell your own story, what you love, what you do and what Nikita means to you.  Any form of entry is acceptable – this will be a coffee table book to truly represent the Nikita girl, a book about her life and something hopefully all will want to be a part of. 


The story of how Nikita came about and the brains behind it, Heida Birgisdottir, the founder and head designer of the company will also be included.  “Nikita has a huge fan base and really values the comments, support and input we have received from girls spanning the globe who love what we do.  This will be a chance for us to say thanks and celebrate the last 10 amazing years with them too.”  – Heida
