Here's a sneaky peak at all the science we splashed across the two pages of Whitelines. This was the second draft, I was told by the editors that my first draft wasn't "illicit" enough. Once we'd got over the inevitable bafflement that this vague directive caused, I do now agree that the second version was better. Maybe they know what they're doing.
We can't really show you the whole thing, but all those lines and facts ended up showing that these were some of the key fashion trends for this season:
- Roll-up beanies are in.
- Camo is constantly in.
- Earthy colours are so 2014/15.
- Pants and stances should be rocked comfortably average this season.
- And beards are at generational peak.
Once we'd sent our picture over to Whitelines uncomfortably close to something they call a 'print deadline', another of the Whitelines editors (they have a flock of them) after reading the conclusion, pointed out this guy:
Holly shit, does this man have his finger on the pulse of fashion.
(The pulse of fashion represented here by a whispy ginger beard)
His name is Brandon Cocard, and although he is blessed by being incredibly on-fashion he has been cursed with the most innuendo-laden name in snowboarding. Cocard is a professional snowboarder in the Capita, Union and Airblaster teams, but perhaps the most significant moment in his life until now was his appearance in Jade the Snowboarder Magazine intern's list of top 10 hottest snowboarders.
Here is the hotty in action in Absinthe's Resonance:
and this season the fashion wears 'Dinoflage' darlings
For any budding designers out there looking for camo inspiration this season here's a camouflage map of the world. Australia are the surprising losers, the runners up are Belgium, and Sweden, and the Democratic Republic of Congo takes the prize with a zesty leopard print.
Enough of this, feel free to go out and buy the new Whitelines 100 floppy book, browse through the snowboard gear porn, and help fund the next snowboard trip/jolly of those nice editor fellas.
