Burton Snowboards introduces their Spring/Summer collection for 2013, fittingly for the extended British winter we are having this Spring, but their new threads are taking inspiration from the ice cold ski slopes, with functional but stylish jackets. American Spring break is also a big influence; they are ‘throwing caution to the wind’ with their new parkas that would look at home on the street or at Lake Tahoe. More daring styles come from their bird-of-prey patterned lightweight jackets which have the potential to complement a great Spring outfit. The more plain Swift jackets in the collection will please the less audacious dresser; the black is minimalist and looks great.
Two tone woven shirts have a slightly retro vibe and add a touch of texture to the mix. The turquoise and blue is simple but bold. The Jericho top adds and American high-school twist, which has an interesting grainy effect and prominent stitching that add subtlety to the loud ‘77’ print .
The collection is available at Burton.com
