MARKET

How is the European boardsports streetwear market right now?
There are tons of new emerging brands that are transcending their local market and a huge uptick in interest in European skate and streetwear apparel brands here in the US.

What are your main price points for next season?
We always aim for an accessible price point. We stick to prices that we feel are reasonable for everyone without compromising quality.

Are you seeing any dominant overall trends, like work wear or wind gear for instance?
Vintage athletic gear and casual sportswear continue to gain interest among our consumer base.

MARKETING

What is your collection theme and which stories are you telling to get customers stoked on streetwear with a boardsports flavor?
We always have an open ear to our team riders who give us input on what they are passionate about in apparel. Our roots in skateboarding continue to be our constant marquee and cornerstone of our brand’s story.

What is the “must have” boardsports look (head-to-toe) for next season?
Oversized bottoms, with vintage athletic inspired sportswear.

STYLE/MATERIALS

How are fits evolving in tops, bottoms, outerwear?
Fits continue to increase in size, particularly in bottoms.

What are you doing with materials, colours and textures?
Colours are very muted. Materials are a lot of nylons and reflective performance fabrics. A lot of moisture repellant materials as well. As far as textures, a lot of creped fabric.

Typographic pattern repeats along with sci fi futuristic apparel graphics.

DENIM

Which trends do you see currently happening in the denim segment? (Seasonal colors, distressed jeans, washes, best sellers, etc)
Heavy Enzyme washes, heavier denim weights and oversized baggy fits.

What is your current denim collection’s theme and marketing story? 
While we don’t currently offer a full range of denim bottoms, we continue to introduce tops and jackets that feature all over printed denim.

Which technical and sustainable features are you adding to jeans (stretch, sustainable fabrics etc)?
Sustainability and reduction of fabric waste is always a priority. As far as technical features, we add stretch as every garment we make has skate performance in mind.
