Riders of summer
A vibrant collection influenced by the lifestyle of skaters and surfers
Inspired by the two at-leisure cultures, the clash of waves and pavements results in a vibrant and powerful collection. Fronted by members from Black Girls Skate: a non-profit organisation devoted to creating equity, visibility and safety for all skaters who identify as women and/or non-binary, black, African or of colour.
"Skateboarding makes strangers into family."

"The first thing that popped into my head when I saw the collection was 'fun'! I love tie-dye and I love bright colours! I think people who wear all black all the time do it because it’s easy, I love a challenge."

"Skating and surfing are very very similar, both can be really hard but also ridiculously fun."
