Known for her knack at crafting superior street style staples, the up-and-coming designer Gelareh Mizrahi – hailing from the diverse streets of Washington D.C. – has added a splash of exotic grit to the spring 2013 fashion landscape with her “Ride or Die” skateboard ($1,7000). Trust us, this is hardly an attempt to dredge up mid-millennial Avril Lavigne nostalgia; crafted from premium materials including luxurious python skin, this board is more suited to pair with Isabel Marant sneaks rather than your kickaround Vans.
We love this high-end take on classic street gear. With so many sartorial nods to counterculture edge this days, it’s awesome to see a designer back it up with actual hardware. Whether or not you feel comfortable taking this luxe piece to the halfpipe, it is sure to make an excellent statement as you roll around the city streets this summer.
