Hurst Snags ASP Wildcard to Compete in the Women’s WCT Event
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 29 July, 2014 - Vans is excited to spotlight surf team rider Leila Hurst on the release of her first-ever head-to-toe women’s collection and proudly welcomes her as the 2014 ASP wildcard into the Vans US Open of Surfing Women’s WCT event. Hurst will compete among surfing’s elite including Carissa Moore and Pauline Ado today in Huntington Beach, California.
This week, Vans also teams up with Hurst to unveil her full collection of women’s apparel and footwear at the Vans US Open of Surfing. Hurst worked with Vans designers to create her first signature apparel collection using a range of favorite silhouettes from her own closet and inspiration from surf trips across the globe.
The collection embodies her bold and bright personality by incorporating warm red, orange and yellow pops of colors in a custom vintage floral print. Highlights from the collection includes racerback and strappy tanks, pull-on knit shorts with side-tie details and a tiered summer dress.
“I wanted to create pieces that are easy to wear both on and off the beach,” said Leila Hurst, Vans surf team rider.
The collection also includes lightweight footwear options inspired by the rich colors and eclectic patterns she’s seen while travelling the world. Hurst created a one-of-a-kind geometric print that can be found across the new Tazie surfsider, classic Authentic Slim and Malta sandal.
The Vans Leila Hurst collection ranges from $17 - $50 and will be sold during the Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach at the Vans Retail store on the sand as well as HSS and Jack’s. If you’re not in Surf City you can find the collection at Vans Retail stores, Vans.com and Coastal Edge.
