Fashion x Skateboarding seems to be a familiar theme in the spreads of recent magazine editorials. Personally I cannot claim to be able to skate, or know anything about it unfortunately. Perhaps when and if my boys take it up, they might teach me (doubtful!!).
Since the 1950s, skateboarding has been akin to surf culture, initially a rebellious anti-mainstream reputation. 2011/2012 though has brought a renewed hype to the style and uniform of the skating world. A style of its’ own, the catwalk and non-sports fashion industry have tagged onto the skating look.
Here featured are some images from fashion editorials Glamour, a Japanese brand, Vans blog and the last image is a fab retro image of Cindy Whitehead, pro skater in the USA now turned sports stylist plus a few piccies from her seriously ‘rad‘ blog; it’s not about pretty, check it out!
