The waves are here and it’s time to bring out the surfboard as the Julien David Spring Summer 2015 collection takes inspiration from Californian surfer dudes.
The surfer dude that Julien David has created is a little more refined with a grungy edge to him while possessing unlikely quirks here and there. Formalwear and surfer wear came together producing a collection showcasing board shorts paired with blazers and bow-ties in relaxed tailoring making the models looking like chic surfers. Since David’s collaboration with street wear and sportswear brand Quicksilver, you’ll be seeing their logo appearing in the collection on t-shirts. Something unexpected were the two full wetsuit looks with tuxedo prints at the end worn by pro snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov and pro surfer Marc Lacomare.
Now who says surfer dudes can’t look polished and cleaned up when the occasion calls for it. You can go from a carefree surfer riding the waves to a sort of sophisticated gentleman just like that thanks to Julien David.
