If you thought Skingraft's fall 2012 collection was sporty, batter up for spring 2013. Always a LAFW highlight, the LA-based label presented their latest innovative range at the Mondrian Los Angeles, which featured a next-level interpretation of activewear.
Skingraft's mastermind Jonny Cota explains that looks were inspired by "a new generation of motorcycle gangs, where classic biker jacket silhouettes are re-imagined with the comfort, aesthetic and flexibility of future sporty activewear." If you haven't thought to rock biker spandex under shorts or pair baseball caps and visors with leather motos, laser-cut vests and mesh tops, you will now.
Cota also explains that, since spring isn't exactly leather weather, Skingraft approaches the season with "lighter, more supple skins combined with sheer summer cottons and hand-crocheted knit details." Home run.
