Quiksilver Critique

The junior class has designed a Spring 2016 menswear collection in response to a direction from Quiksilver to create garments fit for a music festival or a surf camping trip in Northern Baja. Ideally, the clothes would provide sun and wind protection during the blazing heat of the day as well as during chilly nights. As for colors, the direction advises students to make a blue color story with accent pops. In addition, the students need to “have some discoverables, meaning second uses,” e.g. a ventilated hood that is breathable but also acts as sun protection.
