On cold winter days and even some sweet summer nights, our daydreams often drift to the seemingly idyllic world of the west coast of California. The washed-out palette of desert colours or once vibrant t-shirts that have seen too much sun and are now faded to a perfect mild hue. The inspiration for 18 Waits' upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 collection derives from their ongoing love affair with the California they grew up with from afar. The Beat novels from the 50s and 60s, the classic rock and roll history that flourished there in the 70s, the surf and skateboard explosion of the 80s. From San Francisco to the canyons, this collection is inspired by the California that they know and love. We’re excited to share this preview as we’ll be carrying numerous pieces such as the Summer is Fun tee, White Paisley short sleeve shirt, Natural/Blue Stripe shirt and Indigo shorts.
