The Games may be good and gone in the rearview, but Margielyn Didal is just getting started. After winning our hearts and smiles with her post-Olympic antics, the Cebuana skating prodigy returns to the rails, this time sporting some dope “drops” that she handpicked along with popular clothing brand H&M.
Dubbed “The Skate Drop,” H&M’s latest clothing collection features the freshest picks specifically selected by Margielyn herself. The pieces share the same punk street-style aesthetic that’s popular among pipe-shredding skateboarders: oversized shirts, relaxed baggy sweaters, and monotone hoodies that feature minimal iconographies.
For Margielyn, “The Skate Drop” speaks of tolerance, inclusivity, and patriotism – skating through the streets while flaunting our individual sense of style that caters to all concepts, classes, or gender identities.
If you’re a true fan of the way our first-ever Filipino Olympic skateboarder has been trailblazing, then go all-in by buying P995 worth of “The Skate Drop” menswear to stand a chance to win a limited-edition skateboard signed by Margielyn Didal herself!
For more jaw-dropping skating feats, check out this video featuring The Skate Drop collection. The campaign was shot in Margielyn’s hometown in Cebu in partnership with the country’s national skateboarding federation Skate Pilipinas.
“The Skate Drop” collection officially drops on August 30 at all branches of H&M, the H&M online store, and on ZALORA.
