Tuesday 21 February, 2019 – 20:30 CASA LOEWE Madrid
For the latest CASA LOEWE Conversation, we are honored to be joined by George Bullard, a British world record-breaking explorer, endurance athlete and motivational speaker. He is going to recount one of his most celebrated expeditions when he kayaked 2468km across the North Atlantic from Greenland to Scotland, retracing a journey that Innuits were believed to have remarkably completed in the 18th century.
The talk coincides with the launch of Eye/LOEWE/Nature, the house´s new permanent line of Menswear and Accessories that has been designed with the innate human desire to escape the urban malaise and get closer to nature in mind. In this same spirit, George is passionate about encouraging others to embark on their own adventures, embrace their strengths, overcome their weaknesses, and confront the challenge of the ‘unthinkable’.
To date George has covered more than 2000 miles on foot in the polar regions and completed numerous extraordinary expeditions around the world, guiding over 300 people. At the age of 19, he achieved a feat that explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes described as ‘genuinely ground-breaking’, completing the world’s longest fully unsupported polar journey. He has gone on to excel as an explorer and endurance athlete both on land, ice cap and ocean.
