From Beach-Ready Streetwear Catalogs to Seapunk Raver Runways

 - Sep 3, 2014
These surfer fashion examples range from sunkissed wetsuit editorials to tropical streetwear campaigns that are meant to appeal to the style-conscious beach dweller.

Whether riding the waves of California or Hawaii, surfers have always been associated with an effortlessly cool and sporty style aesthetic. Sun-kissed skin, wavy hair and vibrant hues are often the formula behind these editorials, campaigns and catalogs.

Memorable examples from this list of surfer fashions include the Dylan Fosket by Jakob Axelman portrait series and Emma Mulholland's Spring/Summer 2014/2015 catalog. While Jakob Axelman's editorial captures raw and candid imagery of its subject, Emma Mulholland's lookbook exaggerates its beachy inspiration. The designer's catalog is infused with exaggerated Seapunk fashions and opposes the aesthetic of Axelman's stripped down and subtle image series.
