Two LA-based groups have joined up for a first time collaboration that celebrates everything California stands for.
General Admission is a relative newcomer on the LA scene. A relaxed brand that summarises the laid-back skateboarder style, the brand uses its output to shine a light on fringe communities by interviewing musicians, old heads, and anyone that has contributed to their neighborhood.
As an extension of this, General Admission has collaborated with Santa Monica Airlines – skateboarding VIP’s that have been around since the beginning. Lacking in streetwear-infused clout that has seen the likes of Supreme skyrocket, Santa Monica Airlines is arguably more influential and infinitely more low-key, as the brand was founded by Skip Engblom, of Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr fame. Essentially: Skip Englbom helped to father modern-day skateboarding as we know it.
The General Admission x Santa Monica Airlines collab is a fusion of old skool and modern, using the modern day’s influence to shine a light on the past.
