With the crossover success of brands like Palace, Supreme, and Stussy, now more than ever the fashion world is looking to merge its tailored aesthetic with sk8r vibes. For our Summer Music issue, we dispatched photographer Sandy Kim and stylist Ian Bradley to capture sun-kissed slackers—including skaters Nico Chiat, Ade Greenidge, Amos Trujillo, Levi Kortez, Rashad Meighan and Aidan DaRe—in their natural habitat, wearing the season's tightest looks.
