STYLE-LIST: JOSEPH LICATA, EDITOR IN CHIEF OF SURF COLLECTIVE SHARES HIS LIST OF MUST HAVES

As the Editor in Chief of Surf Collective and former brand manager for the likes of Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole and House of Dereon among others; I’ve seen trends come and go, and my tastes shift from year to year, but some things will always remain the same. It just might not be this list (insert smiley face and wink). But I’ll do my best to add-to and take-away things as time goes on.
