The Elder Statesman offered a bright and joyful collection inspired by the surfing and rave cultures of the ‘90s in California for pre-fall 2024, with its signature cashmere numbers tie-dyed in pop colors and adorned with graffiti artworks, and a range of cotton, linen, and silk blended pieces at a more democratic price range for the tropical climate.
The collection also features a range of pieces in collaboration with the Australian pro-surfer and artist Ozzy Wright, also known as Ozzy Wrong, such as a knitted sweater featuring colorful dolphins in an infinity loop, as well as an oversized “Dolphinity” blanket.

This collection also saw the official introduction of a cotton-cashmere blended range called Interdimensional Surf with easy-to-care pieces that can be worn daily.
