ON BOARD

Beck Hickey, founder of Beck(y), likens her one-of-a-kind bags and accessories to wearable art, not unlike the skateboards they’re made from. It’s the juxtaposition of weathered, beat-up boards with luxurious textiles like silk that excites the designer, who hand-crafts her wares in her New York City workshop. Her clutch, which maintains much of the integrity of the original deck, is lined with satin and bears a nickel clasp.

HEEL FLIP

For Kris Lovett, a University of the Arts in Philadelphia graduate and an avid skater, the graceful geometry of a skateboard lined up perfectly with the curve of a woman’s shoe. His RePly collection of pumps, platforms, and clogs, which he created for his senior thesis, showcase the boards’ original multicolored hues, with sizzling bands of colors that imbue the feminine silhouettes with youthful vim.
