Another bemusing ‘skate’ fashion feature was published online yesterday spotlighting this new ‘skater style’ that we apparently are all wearing thesedays.
The catwalks continue to churn out scene-hoppers highlighted by the Guardian, whose efforts of supporting the ongoing battle at Southbank continue in this new article. Topshop were the last to make us aware of how the ‘Southbank skate‘ look was the height of fashion but we still do not understand the link with statements like “Skater style – fashion’s hottest trend.”
“Filling the style space left vacant by glitz comes skater style. Fashion rode a wave with surf a couple of seasons ago – now it’s skaters who are having a moment.”
The article also mentions various brands such as Vans with their recent various collabs with designers inking their shoes. Have a read and take in Stella McCartney’s wonderful work here. I have obviously just ordered one for the missus.
Back in July this year, Kingpin Magazine interviewed Palace rider Lucien Clarke and today it’s online in full for you to read. Click here for the feature covering what makes him one of the friendliest and very best skateboarders in London town.
Palace rider Lucien Clarke has officially been announced as joining the Supra Footwear pro team today. The 24 year old Londoner says: “I’m thrilled about SUPRA. The shoes are amazing to skate, and most of the riders I watched for years growing up ‘pon de skateboard. So it’s a banging feeling being on the same team.”
“Jamaica to New York to London was the route to becoming the bad man that is Lucien ‘Brother Darkness’ Clarke,” said friend Chewy Cannon who just joined the KR3W team today. “If you don’t know now, you will realize after.”
