3 SKATE BRANDS TO KNOW

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 26 March 2018

If there’s any aesthetic to get on board with for 2018, it’s skater style. From oversized tees to light-wash loose-fitting jeans, it’s all about remixing your wardrobe essentials with skater-inspired silhouettes. So, to reinvigorate your look in time for the upcoming season, here are three big skatewear brands to get familiar with, stat.
Vans at ASOS

Vans

When it comes to iconic skatewear labels, Vans is way up there. Founded back in 1966 as the Van Doren Rubber Company, the California-based brand steadily expanded its remit over the decades, from canvas sneakers to a range of slick skating staples. For its latest line, Vans has delivered brightly coloured tees and relaxed hoodies decorated with its signature chequerboard print.

Element at ASOS

Element

Another brand hailing from California, Element emerged in the early 90s – an era not dissimilar to now, when skater style was ubiquitous. Sticking to its vow to be the best ‘in the most honest and ethical way possible’, its new collection is as fresh as they come. Take a look at the line’s mixture of logo-printed pieces and eccentric cuts covered in cartoon-style graphics.

Crooked Tongues x Lucas Beaufort

Design-wise, Crooked Tongues regularly creates skatewear with strong streetwear elements. As is to be expected from the label, its latest line is covered in quirky illustrations. It recently teamed up with French artist Lucas Beaufort – who made a name for himself by painting on old skate magazines – to create a range of popping T-shirts, hoodies and tote bags.
