Ashley Smith Collection | Fall 2014

Introducing the first RVCA x Ashley Smith signature collection for Fall 2014.

"I believe there are things in everyone's closet that they can't live without, things essential to their personal style. My first capsule collection with RVCA exemplifies my own essentials. My style is inspired by a Balance of Opposites: My childhood, growing up with a punk influence with multi-colored hair and living in band t-shirts, to now, being a model living in NYC and traveling the world on fashion shoots. This collection reflects this clash of urban street with a vintage twist, mixing an edgy leather jacket with a blush tone sweater knit dress, or a sweet daisy-printed chiffon blouse with high-waisted leather shorts. My friend, photographer Sandy Kim, and I collaborated on the following imagery to showcase how opposing styles can make these essentials work. No matter what you like or where you come from, wether you're feeling like a good girl or a bad girl, these pieces are meant to make you feel 100% rad and 100% you!" - Ashley Smith

SUMMER 2013 MENS LOOKS

ALOHA ASSAULT
Summertime vibes are kicked into high gear with this opening delivery to summer 2013. Inspired by the Hula Guns imagery of ANP artist Kevin Ancell, Hawaiian tropical kitsch is juxtaposed against classic military fabrications and utilitarian details, for an assault of aloha that you can’t fight bruddah.

NOMADICAL RADICAL
Alex Knost’s recent explorations of northern Africa coastlines are the inspiration for this summer collection. Afro–pop prints and bold colors are mixed with lightweight cottons and linens, for the perfect balance of vibrant rhythms and laid back coolin’ out.

CAMINO DE LOS MUERTOS
Picking up from the SP13 journey down Mescalito Highway, this collection takes a cue from Keegan Sauder’s epic 2200 mile motorcycle trip to the tip of Baja and back, and heads deeper into untamed territories and destinations unknown. This peak–of–summer delivery is born on the road and weathered by desert landscapes.
