Ed Templeton Brings AllSaints’ Latest Collection to Life
IMAGES COURTESY OF ED TEMPLETON
In celebration of AllSaints’ Huntington Beach Collection, the East London-based brand threw down last night in a discreet warehouse space in Los Angeles’ Chinatown. To document the collection, AllSaints commissioned artist, photographer, pro-skater, and Huntington Beach resident, Ed Templeton.
When speaking about the multi-medium artist, AllSaints’ Creative Director Will Beedle said, “Anyone familiar with Ed Templeton’s photos of his hometown Huntington Beach will know what a unique spirit the town has. So, when I found myself there last summer, it seemed natural to start to build a collection around it. A year later I went back—this time with Ed, a couple of cases of clothes that the town had inspired, and a group of kids that we met along the way, and we spent a couple of days just hanging out on the beach and capturing those spontaneous mementos. The images that we took away capture not just the laid-back, languid spirit of the time in Huntington, but every summer spent on the beach.”
