>> The rumors that Erin Wasson's RVCA line is no longer have finally been addressed by both parties. According to RVCA founder and creative director Pat Tenore: “The current rumors are completely incorrect and misleading statements. RVCA and Erin have not parted ways indefinitely. Erin is part of the RVCA family, and we hope to work with her on new collaborations in the near future.”
Though Wasson's contract with the brand technically expires at the end of the year, there will be no Spring 2011 Erin Wasson x RVCA collection. Added RVCA marketing director Brian Garofalow: “[The] agreement was for a time term, expiring 12/31/10. The term expires in between the development and go-to-market processes for [Spring 2011], so both parties opted not to develop the season as part of our current agreement.”
