This season, Boardies have collaborated with London designer, Liam Hodges - introducing swimwear by Liam Hodges x Boardies. The four-piece capsule is created with fabrics made from 100% recycled water bottles. The mixed, deconstructed Liam Hodges prints disrupt their aesthetic illusion and reminds one of the design process.
The collective consciousness is forced into a liminal space between the metrics of never-ending social media accounts. The pressures that this duality causes leaves us not only competing with others but also the past and present untruths we have created in a quasi-dystopian battle royale.
We’d love to share the collaboration with your readers! Are you working on any new stories, highlights from S20, interviews or best collaborations from S20 that we could help you with?

Based out of Silvertown, London, signature Liam Hodges fuses in uences from modern subcultures and postmodernism with innovative streetwear designs that combine patch-working with wide silhouettes and a strong graphic language.
