Yes it’s Monday. Yes Christmas is just around the corner, but not exactly around the corner, and you are either stuck in the office wishing you were still in bed, or still in bed wishing you had a job *cough*. Even further into the future is the thought of festivals, soggy tents, and washing with wet wipes. Either way you should be drinking a cup of tea and perusing this blog.
Volcom is a surf, skate and snowboard brand based out of California, and is known for its collabs with up and coming talent and designers. When I got this email, I had to share, because it combines two things I love, big brands giving a chance to young designers and um, getting emails. Volcom SEED (Sewing Elements of Exploratory Design) launched in 2009, offering London College of Fashion students a chance to design their own capsule collection. The winning designer, Anju Khusal spent the last 6 months at Volcom in France designing her own capsule collection, out this AW11.
Volcom offered me the Butterfly Parka as a gift, but I instead chose to give it to a lucky reader. TSoS is giving away ONE Volcom SEED Butterfly Parka (RRP £103) in M (UK 10-12) because I’m just feeling real nice. The Butterfly Parka is a long version of the classic wind breaker with a funnel neck and a zipper that conceals a fold in the hood. It has above the bust tuck details and adjustable elastic draw cord on the waist. The inside is lined with Anju’s origami inspired lining. Don’t all be wearing the same parka to Glasto next year (yes I know Glasto isn’t on next year) but you know what I mean. Be dry, be stylish, but most importantly, don’t look like you all raided Topshop, amrite?
