THE HOMAGE

Santana Social Club was created as a means to pay homage to designer Patrick Krah's maternal grandfather. David Victor Santana passed away before he and Patrick could ever meet. David Santana serves not only as a namesake for the brand but also as a representative of the time and era from which he grew up in that is a bygone era today. The head of the Teamsters Butchers Union in Los Angeles in the 50's serves as only one small portion of inspiration for the brand. The time in which David lived serves as the foundation of Santana Social Club. Exploring the masculinity, craftsmanship, pride and progressiveness that seems to be lost today.
