Noon Goons Striped “The Droogs” Cardigan
SSENSE

Southern Californian brand Noon Goons has gone from strength to strength in recent seasons, cobbling together a materialistic vision of the subcultures that have come to inform its recognizable aesthetic.

Embodying key SoCal countercultures including surf, skate, punk, and hip-hop, the latest Noon Goons collection is a hit of nostalgia, transporting us back to the golden days of Downtown LA. Founded by Kurt Narmore, Noon Goons was birthed out of the aesthetic of Venice Beach, more favorably known as “Dogtown.” Regarded as the birthplace of skateboarding, surfing, and the stylistic cues that came with it, the aesthetic inherent to Noon Goons is rich with ease, promising to go well with just about anything.

So, to help you tap into your inner Z Boy, shop a selection of the best SS20 Noon Goons product from its latest release below.
