In Vogue and In Love – Skateboarding

Recently I have developed a new found love for Skateboarding! Random and definitely something I should have been into circa 2002 age 14, but for some reason Skateboarding mesmerises me; I am totally baffled by that sort of one legged coordination!  It maybe also has something to do with the fact that skateboarding is totally in vogue and has been for the past few seasons. Jayne Min of top blog STOP IT RIGHT NOW lead the revolution after deciding to experiment merging fashion and skateboarding.  Min decided to apply the iconic Celine SS12 print to the underneath of a limited number of boards (See images) – the effect was amazing and several other designer collaborations followed including Alexander Wang, DVF and Tory Burch to name a few.  As the trend has filtered down from the runway and onto the streets; Beanies, drop crotch jeans, vans, retro sports gear, amongst other items have become everyday pieces.  The various shoots inspired by ‘boarding’ make me wish I was a cool Californian girl, skateboarding along the pier in the summer sun on my Celine skateboard – If I tried now, I’d look like an idiot but hey, at least I’d be a stylish one!
