Critic's latest skate clothing line was designed with an inspiration that honors the subculture scene during the 1980s and '90s.

The South Korean brand does this by making use of faded colors that denote the time period and bold prints that emblazon many of the pieces. Styles are marketed to be unisex, with male and female models interchanging looks throughout the collection's lookbook.

With the baggy structure of the skate clothing, each is given a laid back feel that corresponds with the time that it emulates. A number of jerseys and crew necks feature three-quarter length sleeves, adding to the uniqueness of the collection and making the styles better suited to the warm summer months as well. Other looks include matching short and button-up ensembles, graphic tees, accessories and more.
