Skateboarding Is Not A Fashion
(999 items available)
The way apparel has been worn and created by skateboarders over the past 50 years has had a tremendous impact on popular culture at large. In Skateboarding Is Not A Fashion, the authors have taken great effort to document all aspects of this aesthetic movement; from its roots in the 1950s as an offshoot of surfing culture, through the early 1980s when skateboarding “found itself” after a crucial underground period of soul searching and DIY expressions of individuality. Featuring original commentary from designers, company founders, and pro skateboarders who have defined skateboarding’s look for entire generations. Skate personalities we meet include Stacy Peralta, Lance Mountain, Tony Alva, Brad Bowman, Steve Olson, Steve Caballero, Steve Van Doren, and many more.
