SUMMER | AUTUMN 2018

Technical fabrics, stretch materials and street culture have combined to form a new style trend called “Streetnic”, replacing what we have long known as athleisure. Street for everyday, and ‘nic’ for technical. Men and women are wearing technical fabric clothing 12 months of the year because it’s moisture-wicking, odor-absorbing, stretchy, and comfy. It’s not just for yoga, running or cycling but for everyday life. We don’t just wear these items only for Casual Friday, but more for casual all the time. We’ve seen pajama-chic hit the high fashion runways for a few seasons now and even slippers for the office, while CEO’s like Mark Zuckerberg wears hoodies to the office, why can’t we all dress down? Workout clothes are growing up and celebrities are lending their names to the Streetnic trend.

Spring/Summer 2018 is an exciting time for all us, as we bring you a range of new leathers that are adaptive to light, are 3D, laser perfed and embossed. We have strived to give you innovative textures on our soft pigskin leather that is adaptive to any of your footwear projects. Have a great season!

Current Season

Harmony

Now that we’ve tidied and organized and decluttered, what’s next? We’ve made space in our space, now it’s time to make space in our heads. Calm, focus, peace - these are the key accessories for 2018. The twin sensibilities of Scandinavian and Japanese design movements inspire carefully culled capsule collections of simple natural pieces. We look to mindful eastern arts, meditation spaces and ancient pastimes like origami for a nearly ascetic aesthetic, while graceful disciplines like barre and ballet create a mood of ethereal beauty.

Plateau

A rugged romanticism infuses our next story, Plateau. We’re drawn to the untamed power of nature on a deserted volcanic island. We meet the challenge in infinite black sand and undulating lava fields, rough craggy mountains and cool icy glaciers with an unseen heat bubbling just below the surface. We nimbly navigate this paradoxical and prehistoric landscape in a new generation of workwear integrating high-performance and high style.

Ready to Wear Colors

Intense blue alights on mahogany bases; a dry desert landscape base in greenish dark. Paler shade of clay illuminates volcanic darks in casualwear. Performance wear picks up earthy brown. Terrestrial tones in gold, earth, terracotta and light green lend an interesting gradient.

The Materials

Refresh

Refresh explores the new holistic approach to health and happiness. We practice active living – we move our bodies every day, we nourish ourselves from the inside out, and we track and share every footstep and calorie. Walkable downtowns, cold-pressed juice bars and ubiquitous urban bike paths are the new normal. Healthiness is such a prevalent lifestyle trend it even extends to our partying, brands like CleanDrinking water to the modern healthonist by offering fruit and veggie cocktails that are perfect on their own or with a shot of your favorite liquor, giving new meaning to mind, body and spirit.

Ready to Wear Colors

Tangy tones of orange, yellow, pink, fuchsia and green to create a luminous palette that is appetizing and refreshing for hot, summer days. Over-exposed tints on linen are cool and uncomplicated. Bleached citrus delicately infuses syrupy sweet tones. These lighter shades combine well with summer basics of navy, white and khaki.

The Materials

Colorful straps and webbing on sandals; cup sole sneakers in softly tinted suede; Velcro straps combined with laces; neoprene; canvas; sail cloth; nautical details; rip stop; grommets; color blocking; 3D embossings; stripes; the use of tubing or padding to interesting shapes.

Lime Time

Lime Time instructs us in the storied Caribbean pastime of liming, the art of hanging out and doing nothing. When was the last time you sat around with friends, laughing, drinking, telling stories? The Caribbean, with its azure sea, tropical flora and carnival spirit is the perfect place for a lime. Lively color and lively conversation, tall drinks and tall tales, hot climes and hot times. No need to hurry through that curry. Ya mon, it’s on!

There is something for everyone in this range!
