About the All New Santa Monica Collection

The all-new Santa Monica collection caters to the fashion-savvy coastal male in the 25 to 40 age demographic who identifies with Quiksilver’s boardriding apparel but desires more refined styles and higher quality materials.  With a unique identity, the Santa Monica collection represents more than a third of the QuikSilverEdition line and compliments the remaining portion of the QuikSilverEdition line, newly-dubbed the Malibu collection. Both detail and quality are strong underlying philosophies that were a focus throughout the creation of the Santa Monica collection. QuikSilverEdition’s Spring 2007 Santa Monica collection offers a full menswear line of woven shirts, knits, sweaters, jackets, lightweight fleece, pants, denim, walkshorts, swimwear, tee shirts, sandals and hats, featuring slimmer fits, attention to trims and higher quality materials like premium 100 two-ply cotton and cashmere blends. 


About QuiksilverEdition

QuikSilverEdition was cultivated from the boardriding roots of Quiksilver. The clothes are designed for the guy who’s got taste. He’s grown up in the boardriding culture and has always known what’s cool and cutting-edge in music, art, fashion and film.  The comfort he feels in his own skin is expressed in everything he does.  From day to night, he wants clothes that are right for every occasion.  He now likes clean and tailored lines and wants his look to be more understated and refined.   He’s still a thrill seeker - in shape, adventurous, not afraid to get his hands dirty, and he knows a little indulgence never killed him. QuikSilverEdition suits his persona perfectly.  Think lambskin leather jackets paired with washed compact weave twill pants, or cotton/linen military jackets over cotton/soy blend sweaters.


In keeping with tradition and history QuikSilverEdition sponsors authentic heroes such as watermen like Dave Kalama, Jamie Mitchell and Shayne McIntyre, along with cutting-edge artists such as Sandow Birk.  QuiksilverEdition also supports grass roots events such as the annual Oahu to Molokai paddleboard race in Hawaii.


QuikSilverEdition has set the stage for the men's sportswear collection business of the future…a unique line of casually luxurious designs that speak your language.
