Snowboard Iskola

Of course, it's important to acknowledge the insane tricks that happened at X Games 2024. It was insane, all the athletes are superpeople, wildly impressive and noteworthy, I don't even understand how people can move like that. But let's be real, that information is everywhere on the internet, so it's time to take a look at something that doesn't get talked about as much as the action: the fashion.

The merging of streetwear with outerwear was prevalent this year at X, and I guarantee anyone who sat on their couch watching this weekend noticed. The unanimous fashion winner by vote of council (council being just myself) was undoubtedly Cocomo Murase. The sherpa, ugg-coded, vintage pilot style jacket blew my mind. Followed by that Picasso-esque sweater. I didn't even care what tricks she was doing because she looked the coolest doing it, and she swept the event walking away with three medals... soooo, ya know, nothing is a coincidence.

Rene Rinnekangas was sporting a jacket similar to Cocomo's, so here is credit where credit is due, good sir, well done. 

There was an unexpected presence of skeleton print during Knuckle Huck that I thought died in 2010. Luke Winkelmann was donning a skeleton print hoodie, Stan was up at the top rocking skeleton print gloves, Egan won a bronze with skeleton print mittens. What's up with that? Am I missing something? I was unaware this print had made a resurrection, but I'm not mad about it. It's cool; you can't really argue with it. Similar to how you couldn't really argue that Zeb's heart sunglasses at the 2020 Knuckle Huck were cool. My conclusion is that Knuckle Huck is a breeding ground for not only innovative tricks but also forward-thinking fashion, and I am so here for it.

I know that she's a skier but Eileen Gu had it going on with her bedazzled hoodie and furry bucket hat. And let me take a moment to express gratitude that the "tall tee" skier style is no longer a thing people do. Let's leave that trend six feet under where it belongs (unless you're Henrik Harlaut because although I know nothing about skiing I know that he is a tall tee OG and he can do whatever he wants, plus he's mastered the art of the sag).

Kaishu's two-tone brown Analog mega puffer was epic. The oversized fit and neutral earth tones are at once reminiscent of the classic Analog heyday in the early 2000's  and on par with what we saw on fall runways in brands like Marc Jacobs and Balenciaga.

Maybe it's something about being in Aspen, or maybe it was the weather this year, but the fashion was just as entertaining as the tricks. Thanks for providing, X Games. Can't wait for next year!
