The sun's here, (finally) which sees Santa Cruz Skateboards drop two new clothing ranges under the Hi Summer banner featuring a range of pieces for both men and women.
The venerable Santa Cruz, (skateboarding's oldest imprint as it goes) has upped their game of late when it comes to soft goods with collections for both men and women dropping every season and with a back catalogue of iconography like Santa Cruz has, this means new twists on classic graphics served up on the regular. Win win for Santa Cruz fans.
Summer 2018 is no exception with a varied range of pieces for both women and men incorporating everything from shell tracksuits to one-piece summer dresses with all over 'Praying Hands' print.
Have a peek preview of some of the pieces below and then get on to your local Santa Cruz stockist.
Men's Santa Cruz Hi Summer range
Santa Cruz High Summer 18 line introduces fresh colourways of classic logos, along with
some killer new graphics inspired by the extensive Santa Cruz archive, including the classic hood with Jim Phillips Screaming Hand back print.
The OG Slasher and new Slasher Dot graphics keep true to the brand's skate and surf roots, whilst sweet printed fades and fluro palettes reinforce that 80’s Cali feel, with vintage puff prints and printed joggers.
The gamma mesh lined shell tracksuit (not pictured here) adds another level of chill to the relaxed summer vibe and keeps the 80's theme strong.
Women’s Santa Cruz Hi Summer range
With 'Permanent Vacation' as the cohesive theme, Santa Cruz have really stepped up their game this season when it comes to women's apparel. Often over-looked in the past, the female market tended to be served badly by skate brands until fairly recently with little attention paid to female-specific cuts or sizing. Happily, things have moved on now with full ranges of women's soft goods offered by many of the larger brands in the industry.
Washed out neon’s and fluro prints collide to bring you High Summer 18 with Santa Cruz twist.
The screaming vacation print steps up the game on a shirt and short set, the ever popular
praying hands pattern is back this time on a dress and long sleeve tee with just the right amount of stretch.
They’ve also raided the Santa Cruz archive to bring back Jim Phillips classic road rider wheels advert originally used as a print advert in the 1980's. Retro stylings with a modern twist and female-specific size breaks.
