Birdwell X RVCA V2
RVCA joins forces with Birdwell for their second limited collection of classic beachwear, blending the creativity and artistic expression of two American-apparel pioneers. RVCA founder, PM Tenore, and Birdwell creative director, Natas Kaupas, worked to design a line that is true to both brands’ vision and aesthetic. The merging of ideas from two great creative minds gives way to a timeless collaboration.
This updated collection takes inspiration from race cars and fighter planes, the highlight piece of the collection is the Warbird 18 Trunk. Only 250 of these trunks were made — logos, trims and patterns were a mash up of ideas that resulted in a special trunk, like no other. They are hand-signed and numbered by Tenore and Kaupas.
The rest of the collection takes prints and branding from the Warbird 18 trunk with a more subtle approach to build out a well-rounded line that will attract any surf or style enthusiast. The collection will be available at specialty surf retailers starting on April 1st and at RVCA.COM. The collection will also be showcased at Ron Robinson in Santa Monica on April 12th, 2018 at their “Festival Styling” event.
