KR3W Summer 2015 Lookbook


 KR3W continue to develop their range with another considered release for the Summer, captured in this accompanying lookbook from photographer Cameron Strand.

The Cali based brand headed to the decaying streets of Las Gaviotas, Mexico for their latest set of visuals which showcase an array of dark graphic tees, vests and short sleeve shirts, as well as highlights from their chino offerings and a varied headwear selection. Utilising a fairly monochrome colour palette throughout with pops of blues and yellows, a small capsule collection entitled ‘BLK Flag’ sits alongside the mainline release consisting of a shirt, shorts, vest and trucker cap, each adorning a custom flag logo.

The last year has seen a lot of evolving and developing for KR3W and its much of the same for their latest effort. While they are careful to respect their skateboarding heritage and the diverse themes that have made the brand so popular over the years, there is maturity in their designs, which they have garnered from over 10 years of experience in the market.

Check out the full lookbook above. You can shop the KR3W Summer 2015 collection at Slam City, Flatspot and Route One
