Diaspora Skateboards SS21 Refines Street Sense With Clean Shapes
Elements of militaria, casualwear and retro graphics collide.
Diaspora Skateboards‘ cheeky seasonal collections are rich with logo flips, statement graphics and relaxed silhouettes, serving up goods that are as easy to wear riding a deck as they are at home. Spring/Summer 2021 is no different, delivering a plethora of comfy hoodies, shirts and slacks, abetted by a few clever layering pieces that riff on menswear and military cues.
Tonal seersucker shirts and relaxed, creased trousers grant the looks an air of sophistication, balancing the inherent playfulness of soccer jerseys branded with “THE HERMETIC ORDER,” zippered polos and the usual slew of graphic essentials. These range from hoodies and tees with stylized branding to long-sleeved shirts emblazoned with Thai script.
Perhaps the most standout pieces of the selection draw from pared-back elements of militaria: a cargo-pocketed anorak and complementary shorts feature relaxed cuts and plenty of storage for on-the-go essentials, almost superseding the need to tote around a daypack or shoulder bag.
Look for the SS21 goods at Diaspora Skateboards’ website and stockists, where seasonal drops have already begun.
