Will The Real Owner Of Destroyr Or Destroyer Clothing Please Stand Up

Seems Craig Anderson who is already on board with HUF (shoe company after Keith Hufnagel) is joining Dylan Rieder and Austyn Gillette and starting a new brand called Destroyr.


“Rumors from possibly another country have floated across my desk that Craig Ando will, in fact, join Dane Reynolds in his new brand which is still just a rumor but called allegedly Destroyer.” – Chas Smith/Beach Grit


“So, what can we expect next from Craig? Stab’s guess would be that Craig will join Dane’s new brand, credible murmurs of which emerged late in November involving a clothing label and skaters Austin Gillette and Dylan Reider. Some of the best skate brands (HUF, Girl, etc) are run by pro skaters, and you’d like to think that surf brands run by surfers will resonate in the market the same way. These guys know how to engage an audience and have a clear connection with their aesthetics. With the rollercoaster surf industry the way it is, there’s every chance this new venture could slingshot to become the next big thing.” – Stab Mag

and more Destroyers already in business = headache for the newest Destroyr!

Skate clothing already registered in 2011


Kids clothing – already in use

Press release:

June 25, 2015 – Quiksilver is proud to unveil its future creative direction which harks back to the brand’s hedonistic and artistic roots.

Premiered during the brand’s international sales conference earlier this month, and launched under the guidance of new CEO Pierre Agnes, the brand’s forthcoming creative blueprint echoes the fertile environment of Quiksilver and the surf community in the 70s and 80s as the company approaches its 50th anniversary.

The inception of this new concept follows the recent promotion of Josh Rush (30) as Global Creative Director. rush brings together Melbourne based design studio Urchin with a hand-picked team of leading creatives and inspirational artists, seeing the likes of surfers Dane Reynolds and Craig Anderson working alongside fashion designers such as Julien David.

Speaking on the future creative direction of Quiksilver, Pierre Agnes stated, “We want to live and document real travel stories and experiences from people within our brand, and in the process connect with local artists, musicians, designers, and grow our creative community. Collaborating, looking for positives and documenting this process allows us to respond and develop a unique visual language that’s raw, honest and undeniably Quiksilver.

In spring 2016, Quiksilver will for the first time introduce the brand narrative ‘stay High’, divided into two distinct stories: the AM and PM collection. supported with strategic consumer segmentation and tiered product positioning targeting the lifestyle fashion market, the stories complete each other to create a cohesive line and will pay homage seasonally to a relevant destination. this season, the creative team immersed themselves in rio de Janeiro and drew their inspiration from the unique culture of brazil – from the brighter colors of São Conrado beach to the darker side of the Rocinha Favelas.

As the original boardshort company, best in class boardshorts are at the heart of the collection. this season’s performance story is driven by the new Wave High, the brand’s halo technical boardshort which features Hi-light fabrication. aligned to Quiksilver’s elite global surf team competing on the Wsl tour, Jeremy Flores (FRA), Fred Patachia (HAW), Wiggoly Dantas (BRZ), Matt banting (AUS) as well as Dane Reynolds (US) will all support the short.

Launching from mid-June 2015 throughout Quiksilver’s global territories, the brand’s 2016 collection will be showcased through a series of tradeshows and events. a first premiere will take place at agenda tradeshow, Long Beach, from July 8th til 9th, 2015.
