Juan Antonio Àvalos & the Tropical Knight

Two years after graduating in Fashion Design at the FD Moda in Barcelona, Spanish designer Juan Antonio Àvalos founded his eponymous label in 2009.

In June last year, Juan’s 2016 spring/summer collection won first prize for the Best Menswear Collection at Barcelona Fashion Week.

The collection is entitled “Tropical Knight,” which draws inspiration from two sources: Medieval knights and California surfers.

As you will see from the photos, the collection revives the 1970 culture of Californian surfers, as well as skaters.

If you ever had difficulty trying to picture a medieval knight on the sands of California, well, look no more!

Check out this fun collection.
