Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 July, 2011 : - - Crista is a snow blend of Swiss Alps and Pyrenees Mountains whose analog photography shuffles together elements of lifestyle both nostalgic and curious in form. Her creative storytelling is a narrative visual style, cleverly pairing inventive fantasy with a wistful realism.
Crista’s photography work with Les Ettes not only compliments her signature shots with scents of grace and simplicity, but also enhances the senses to a level of alluring and irresistible appeal.

The promise of freedom is inherent to our human nature. In the most dire situations, the smell of the breeze and the rustling of the wind remind us either of better times or the better times to come. I believe in the changes the wind brings on her back, even when you´re feeling numb, that´s why this series is called AIR.
About Les Ettes: Based in the heart of Skype, Les Ettes’ main office is geographically all over the world, from Tokyo to Barcelona, Innsbruck, Paris and Los Angeles. We call different places home and speak a mess of languages between one another. We are smart about the products we create without ever compromising quality. Durability and low environmental impact are more important to us than fleeting fashion and the illusion of luxury.
We love the people we get to interact with because of the products we make. We feel grateful for having grown up snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding- as it has instilled in us a twinkle in our eye and given us some incredible lifetime friendships that have helped the success of Les Ettes.
We collaborate with talented and inspiring female personalities on a daily basis. We fall in love with these magnetic characters everywhere we go and in turn the greatest people have gravitated towards Les Ettes. This evolution of relationships is responsible for our constant regeneration.
We believe in honesty; evolution lies in imperfections. We are just a blink of an eye in this universe, but it won’t stop us from wearing make-up, smelling good, laughing out loud and making the most of it.
Our roots in the snowboard, surf and skate community have instilled a twinkle in our eye and a deep respect for the environment. We champion integrity and sustainability over fleeting trends and the illusion of luxury.
