SAN DIEGO — With the slogan “A Tradition of Trend,” the latest installment of the action sports-oriented ASR Expo, ending Sunday here, seemed reborn in mining its heritage as a showcase for more than gear for generation extreme.
From a padded jousting court at backpack makers Ogio to a fashion-minded runway show to artists creating works on the spot at individual booths (see sidebar), ASR lent an atmosphere of recharged optimism and confidence among retailers and vendors. And the most popular sport of all was writing paper.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
