Editor’s Notes: Streetwear’s favorite hiking brand, ROA, has just unveiled its SS19 lineup, comprising six styles: Oblique, Andreas, Daiquiri, Daiquiri Mid, Vincent, and Neal.
Each style has a premium construction, with a focus on performance and being able to withstand the elements. But ROA knows how to make the functional fashionable, as evidenced by collaborations with ALYX, Slam Jam, and Brain Dead.
The SS19 collection makes use of vivid colors inspired by ’80s sportswear and ’90s club wear, from candy-floss pink to minty greens. Familiar silhouettes are joined by new additions, while some models have been updated. The Daiquiri, for example, now sports an ankle sock, while the Vincent is a new design.
Expect the collection to go on sale at retailers such as Slam Jam soon.
