RVCA teams up with surf brand Birdwell Beach Britches for a Spring 2016 capsule surf collection.
The collection, which is entirely made in the U.S., marries Birdwell’s technique of sewing difficult fabric into durable product and RVCA’s artistic creative approach.
“Our collaboration with Birdwell has been a dream of mine for 15 years. I envisioned the collaboration shortly after founding RVCA 15 years ago when I first visited the Birdwell factory in Santa Ana, CA,” said RVCA Founder, Pat Tenore. “Everything about Birdwell has always been appealing to me, from the origin of the company in Carrie Birdwell Mann’s living room, to the timeless heritage of Birdwell’s original 2 ply beach britches, which in my opinion are o the same level of what 501’s are to jeans and America. It’s special to work with a generational company known for quality driven and timeless product. We are excited to share RVCA’s platform, artists and advocates as a perfect fit and balance to Birdwell’s deep routed culture.”
The drop consists of surf essentials such as boardshorts, jackets, surf totes and tees, as well as a signature hat and beach towel. Each piece echoes the heritage of both brands and keeps to the essence of the product.
