California Dreaming: Lightning Bolt’s Fall 2011 Collection

Monday, August 15, 2011

Despite our Manhattan upbringing, The AVENUEinsider skateboarded up and down Park Avenue dreaming that he was shredding waves in Malibu or the North Shore of Oahu. Naturally we mixed our LL Bean bluchers and Brooks Brothers blue blazers with labels like Lightning Bolt, the sultans of surfer-cool.

We still sport Lightning Bolt threads and their latest collection for Fall 2011 channels California winters, which are actually pretty mild and not like the frozen tundra that New York becomes in January. We love the collection and the cool dudes in the look book – it reminds us of hikes through Topanga Canyon listening to Devendra Banhart.

See you this winter at Manhattan Beach (in California, NOT New York).


Where’s Your January AVENUE?

Shhhhh, we're getting a facelift!
