Very, very exciting stuff here—and not only because Swell is the first in the world to post this. Yesterday history was made as with the biggest and brightest fashion show in ASR history. (Be sure to select the “high quality” option at the bottom right of the video.) Showcasing the edgier trends for Fall 2009, looks included plenty of plaid shirts paired with boyfriend jeans, tie-dye accents on everything, large doses of grunge layering, and our favorite: textured knee-hi’s and leg warmers with wedge sandals. (Oh yeah, and don’t forget the snarky attitudes.) Staged in front of hundreds of eager onlookers who risked broken heels and camera lenses to get in, the show marked action sports’ emergence into the big, big leagues. You hear that, Whitney? Forget NYC; this weekend San Diego is the only city that matters. Featured brands included: Volcom, Element, BC Footwear, Lost, Vans, Fox, Ezekiel, O’Neill, Rip Curl, Matix, and Lucy Love.
