Rad surfer and skater girls take note: You’ve now got an Oakley wardrobe to go with your shades. In recent years, the sunglass giant has ventured outside of eyewear to produce performance footwear and accessories, including watches.

Details such as bright, graffiti-like graphics adorned a handful of styles while camouflage prints in unexpected shades of cement and gold gave anoraks and cropped bombers a softer edge. Some of the strongest looks included a dark brown jacket with wide-legged jeans featuring drawstrings on each leg and a sleek zip sweater and tiny surfer short combination in soft yellow.
