Well-Suited: Nike x Martine Rose



When the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) arrived for their first match of the FIFA Womens World Cup , their choice of travel attire marked a significant fashion moment for women’s sports. Instead of the usual sweats and hoodies, the team donned the Nike x Martine Rose player’s suit, jacket, shirt, and Shox Mule MR 4 shoes.

These custom crested Nike x Martine Rose suits set a new precedent, symbolizing not only style but also camaraderie, equality, and positive change both on and off the pitch. The Nike x Martine Rose Collection dissolves the boundaries of men and women’s soccer styling with gender-free tailoring that advances the culture of sport for the next generation. 

Said Megan Rapinoe, a four-time USWNT player and muse for the Nike x Martine Rose Collection: “Wearing this suit to walk out on the field feels like the culmination of my whole career – to elevate the women’s team look, to show something unexpected, and to continue to push boundaries in what it means to be an elite female athlete. It’s also just fun to be able to show up rocking something that’s unique and popping. And to have one of the best designers in the world create for the best team in the world is incredible.” Read More


Shaping Surf History





Shaping Surf History: Tom Curren and Al Merrick, California 1980-1983, a new surf book from Rizzoli, documents a brief but influential period in surf history in Santa Barbara, California. It was an era that saw an extraordinary mix of innovation, individuals, and epic surf conditions on the back of a record-breaking El Nino — beautifully captured by author and photographer, Jimmy Metyko, in a visual encapsulation of one of the most fertile periods in the sport.

With dramatic action shots and personal vignettes, Metyko follows the rise of young legend-to-be and future three-time world champion Tom Curren, whose preternatural wave-riding abilities would help establish California at the forefront of contemporary surfing. He puts us on the waves with a remarkable view and insider’s perspective of the sport’s evolution embodied by this young surfer, whose singular style was enhanced by revolutionary board shaper Al Merrick of Channel Island Surfboards.

We recently chatted with Metyko about this era in surf history, his own evolution from surfer to photographer, and the compilation of work in his first book… Read More


Swim Proof Skin



If you swim regularly, you know the toll it takes on your skin. Dermasport is a new high-performance facial skincare line for swimmers with a four-step system designed to protect, support, and restore chlorine and sun damaged skin. Developed by board-certified dermatologist and avid swimmer Dr. Christopher Schmidt, Dermasport teamed up with five-time gold medalist Nathan Adrian and two-time medalist Elizabeth Beisel to raise awareness and education for proper skin protection for swimmers of all levels.

Dermasport’s unique Ageless Recovery Complex (ARC) combines a proprietary blend of powerful ingredients proven to support skin recovery, boost skin’s natural defenses, and prevent signs of aging due to extensive exposure to chlorine, salt, sweat and sun. Calming botanicals and powerful antioxidants combine to soothe and strengthen the skin’s natural defenses, with moisture boosting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, chamomile flower, green tea leaf, and Vitamins A, C and E.

Dermasport’s complete system includes a clean SPF 50 mineral lotion with a hydrophobic barrier that protects up to 80 minutes in the water; a pH-balanced facial cleanser that gently removes chlorine, sunscreen, sweat, dirt, and makeup; an ultra-hydrating, lightweight facial moisturizer; and a powerful vitamin and peptide firming eye cream that helps undo goggle marks.

Unlike most swim skin care products you see in the locker room, Dermasport’s clean and modern packaging is designed will appeal to non-swimmers as well. Created for the most demanding conditions, the products are just as effective too.
