Lauren and I both grew up by the beach in Southern California and yet somehow found our way into the fashion culture of New York City. You can imagine then why we love Peter Som’s spring collection which embodies surf culture with an urban, downtown attitude. Vintage cut bikinis and cropped tops were worn under blue tweed bombers, printed tuxedo jackets, and oversized coats. And what’s a surf inspired collection without some Bermuda shorts and neoprene thrown into the mix?
