Alex Knost Signature Collection
RVCA surf advocate, board shaper and Tomorrow’s Tulips front man has conceptualized and designed a signature collection that is now in its second season. Alex Knost’s Spring 13 line joins together elements of classic, vintage-inspired workwear, retro color combinations and paisley prints for a feel that replicates his own closet to a T. An affinity for secondhand charm, relaxed fit knits and muted color palettes with pops of brightness coalesce to emote an esthetic that is quite literally what you would find Alex in on any given day.
