Hard Wear in Vogue


Vogue Magazine has a spread on “model turned photographer” Hanneli Mustaparta’s “Skater Style” which isn’t really coming across in these photos, or maybe I don’t know what skater style is. These are Hanneli’s photos and/or photos of Hannah.

Although her style doesn’t typically skew toward the disheveled, urban uniform of most New York City skateboarders, Hanneli Mustaparta puts her obsession with the pastime down to growing up in Norway where the sport was once illegal. “That made it mysterious and cool,” she recalls. It would be more than a little farfetched to call her polished threads rebellious, but the type of clean, modern apparel that she’s documented wearing on street-style blogs certainly make for a more unexpected approach to dressing for sidewalk surfing. “I got my first longboard back in 2008,” says Mustaparta, who uses it to glide from A to B.

The article has a list of other model types or fashionistas who use a skateboard for transportation.

    What’s funny is that she don’t look old enough to remind that skateboard was outlawed in Norway …..
    I do remember since I was arrested for it in 1978 ….

  3. EW Army!

  4. The way Auntie Larry understands Scandinavian history, skateboarding was banned in Norway, as the Swedes were better at it.
