Readers Say
It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

OAKLEY SIGNS NEW TALENT TO GLOBAL WOMEN’S TEAM

WQS Surfer Erica Hosseini Chooses Oakley Eyewear & Apparel to Train & Compete

 

Oakley, Inc. today announced a new addition to the company’s Global Women’s Team: WQS surfer Erica Hosseini. Erica will rely on Oakley’s ability to bridge the gap between form and function enabling her to fulfill her potential in and out of the water, while simultaneously expressing her own distinctive style.

 

A Newport local, Erica surfs and trains in her own backyard and when she’s not at the beach the self-proclaimed “tech nerd” likes to spend time updating her website, www.whereserica.com, blogging and hosting “The Weekly Grind,” for Grind TV.

 

“When I heard Oakley was focused on launching more women's active and swimwear products, I knew it was something I wanted to be apart of,” said Erica.

 

“As a professional surfer I need to make sure I stay fit and train hard. I want to do this everyday in high performance, quality and stylish products. That's why I chose Oakley."

 

“Oakley athletes have woven a powerful legacy across a myriad of sports since the brand’s inception in 1975,” said Patrick McIlvain, Oakley VP Global Sports Marketing.

 

“Erica possesses an uncontainable drive to be on the forefront of sport and style. This makes her an exceptional ambassador for Oakley who will lead the next generation of active women into new territory where performing beautifully is a natural part of everyday life.”

 

Oakley has long been recognized for the superior optical quality of their eyewear and the Women’s Active Collection builds on that legacy. The collection combines technological advancements including HD Polarized® lenses for optimum clarity and Unobtanium® nosepads to prevent slipping, with stylized frames for a line of eyewear that enables athletic women like Erica to be powerfully protected and beautifully decorated at the same time.

 

Whether Erica is out for a surf putting Oakley symmetry to the test or running on the beach, Oakley’s innovative swimwear and active apparel elevates performance levels allowing her to do the same.

 

The brand’s advanced O-Form technology maximizes fit, comfort and performance with 4-way stretch that conforms to the body while Oakley’s best in class moisture management system, O Hydrolix, removes excess moisture to keep the her focused and comfortable during her most intense workouts.

 

As Oakley continues to perfect the balance of performance and style, athletes like Erica are poised to play an integral role in shaping the future of Oakley’s Women’s eyewear and apparel for before, during and after sport.
