How Sex Skateboards is forming a social movement
Louis Slater, founder and designer behind street wear label, Sex Skateboards has created a social media hype that's actually worth it. The ready to wear label challenges graphics with it's use of SEX and red lips on it's pieces creating a cultural movement both on and offline with it's forming experimental use of clothing for the urbanised youth. A newly birthed brand, Slater explains that "I didn't set out to start a brand, it sort of started itself. It evolved on it's own from spray painting the logo onto my own t-shirt". The Sheffield based artist, who currently stocks in Goodhood, London is also set to launch his ready-to-wear label in Japan and Germany later this year.
Creating clothes for the millennials, Sex Skateboards is a wearable voice for the rebellious minds that don't conform to societies expectations.

Slater says " I don't have a specific target consumer, because anyone can wear Sex. There's no boundaries and no rules".
