AW19 My Way – Introducing Aimee Gillingwater
6th September 2019
This autumn, we’ve worked with an amazing collective of seventeen individuals brought together to express their own unique style. Meet Aimee, aka @skatemiddleton (that’s skate not Kate) a 20 year-old skateboarder and model who lives in London.
Aimee started the all-girl skate group Bowl Babes with her friends to create a space for girls who skate to connect and to encourage younger girls to take up the sport.
In her own words:
’I’m so so lucky to live in London and have my girls around me. Savannah is my best mate and we skate everywhere together. Skateboarding to me means freedom to go wherever I want, do whatever I want. No one’s really able to stop me or tell me not to. I spend all day with my friends doing something we all love and break ourselves for, you end up going home at the end of the day feeling like you really did something.’
Most adventurous moment:
She once packed up and went travelling for 3 months – just because she felt like it.
Got skateboard, will move. As a girl who never stays still, Aimee needs an outfit with flexibility come rain or shine, step in our collection of tops for women and the ultimate skater girl jeans.
Microfiber Bomber Jacket
Red is the new black. This lightweight yet warm bomber jacket is water resistant for any outdoor skating or moving around. Made to throw on, wear it oversized and add to any outfit for a pop of colour.
Raven Panelled Crew
Ticking both the comfort and style boxes, this retro style sweatshirt has serious seventies vibes and is a next level women’s top.
Phoebe Wide Leg Jeans
If you want to feel like heaven on a halfpipe, you need jeans with flexibility to move step in the Phoebe Wide Leg. Slightly cropped, high waisted and seriously retro, these are a low maintenance alternative to the classic skinny jeans.
