Snow sport in 2011/12
Gold, retro, 60/70s hippie-adventurer spirit, and bright pop colors in blocks are some of the highlights from designers of boardsport collections for the forthcoming mountain season. Find on this page two exemplary collections - for men and for women.

The 'Holbrook' (named after a small town in Arizona) is designed by Shaun White and his brother Jesse. The sunglasses are derived from the retro-model Frogskin by Oakley and stand for the spirit of adventurers of the 1950/60s who travelled along the historical route 66 in Arizona.
