Get in Touch with your Heritage Pants

Golden Denim is the perfect look for going out this summer or keeping it casual. Since 2009, Abraham Ruiz and his team have been creating hand- crafted denim in Los Angeles, the heart of fashion. The new summer Heritage pants are still influenced by the California lifestyle that we all want to live and enjoy to the fullest.

Information on IN4MATION

Aloha! It’s that time of year in the hot summer months to mess around at the local skate park or go for a quick surf sesh. With In4mation being rooted in the island of Hawai’i, it easily represents this active lifestyle. In4mation’s summer 2015 collection is out and on the prowl with a variety of hats, graphic t- shirts, some cut- and- sew pieces along with an extraordinary military field jacket.

In4mation’s store name and plus symbol logo came about to represent its unique bond and signify their positive outlook. This group of 4 guys originally ran a skate shop and found an opportunity to take their love for skating/ surfing and take it to another level focusing on the fashion aspect of their lifestyle. In4mation’s motto, “I Shall Proceed and Continue,” was influenced by a hip- hop band that serves to follow their chosen paths and to keep moving forward. We admire In4mation’s motto, attitude, and are excited to continue growing with them.

Evan Mock, a 17- year old local skater from North Shore, perfectly fits into In4mation’s lifestyle and is their “It” guy for the summer 2015 look book. It displays the epitome of Hawaiian life, with surfing, boating, skating, beautiful scenery, and unreal adventures. Hawai’i is not the most fashion forward location, but In4mation, being one of Hawai’i’s leading urban retailers, is changing this movement. We cannot wait to see the future of this unique and original brand, be sure to check them out! Contact us for more In4mation, shoots and Mahalo!

K(NOT) A CLAT, Rastaclat

The newest release bracelet by Rastaclat, not your classic Rastaclat, called Knotaclat, is a refined twist on Rastaclat’s classic bracelet. It has a sleek, single- knot, hence the name, polyester band  reinforced by alloy hardware. The Knotaclat still features classic elements to represent freedom of youth, which are bound together with a polished silhouette representing an evolution in style and taste.

KNOTACLAT_LifestyleShoot_Persistance_BlogFeaturePictured above: Knotaclat in Persistance

Instead of the classic braided bracelet made out of a shoelace material, two parts of the shoelace intersect at a single knot. Rastaclat added a 3M reflective thread to enhance the bracelet and make it more unique. We like this new design which we thought looked like an infinity knot symbol to represent infinite friendship, love, and of course infinite Rastaclat!

Golden summer with Acapulco Gold

Acapulco Gold’s summer collection was inspired by the song, “Everybody loves the sunshine” by Roy Ayers. Acapulco Gold took cues from the warmest season and incorporated it into their products with lighter weight fabrics and some tropical prints to signify summer. We kill for AG’s motto, “Built to fit, tough as shit.” Built to fit, relating to their clothing and product is great to show that their stuff is the right fit for you, but will make you look tough as hell. It is creative, funny, and very true. Who wouldn’t want clothing that fits well and makes you look good?

Acapulco Gold’s Illuminaughty graphic is classic and a great laugh. It took a twist from the original Illuminati triangle symbol and made it a rated R version. This was very clever and innovative; they found a way to make it their own. There are tons more of hilarious graphics you will want to check out immediately!

This collection displays an array of different types of patterns, prints, textures making everyone happy. Get your favorite summer looks and check out more from Acapulco Gold, and enjoy the sunshine!

The Patterns of the Season – THE HUNDREDS Era Camo

The Hundreds new Spring/ Summer 2015 collection is out and is the talk of the season. Their lookbook focuses on Californian work wear that is infused with a streetwear perspective. Themes for the new collection include bright colors, bold-yet- refined graphics and tech-meets-traditional fabrications.

One of the most popular designs is the collection suitably named, “Era camo.” The Hundreds revamped the standard woodland camo and made this design into a techno-comic version of itself with a stereoscopic 3D effect. So, don’t worry about your vision, it’s the creative design has the rad effect on your eyes. The black is used to show the connection to their roots, while the gray is a nod to old school newspaper comics from the era of The Hundreds’ inception. It does a mash-up of the normal camouflage print and keeps it very hip and up-to-date; we love it!

Connect with the Dots by The Hundreds Large Polka Pattern

One of our favorite new prints among the The  Hundreds summer collection is the classic Polka Dots. The “Polka” pattern is The Hundreds’ take on the universally loved pattern which has been stylized with The Hundreds familiar bomb. The bomb dots are equal in size to the polka dot and are sprinkled onto the prints. And you will look bomb this summer wearing The Hundreds bomb logo polka dots prints.

We love these creative prints, which still maintain a classic and cool design. The colorways are perfect for summer looks, being bold and bright. You will catch everyone’s eye when rocking these new styles. The Hundreds lookbook outfits can be worn casually to a summer BBQ or bonfire, but they can also be dressed up to wear on your first date with a summer fling!

The MISHKA Summer 2015 Lookbook By Pretty Puke

Mishka’s newly launched video for its summer 2015 lookbook features notorious artist Pretty Puke, who directed and photographed it, which incorporates his signature, punk-inspired gritty realism. This collection is not your average ho-hum summer clothing line, it is weird, but in the best way possible. For those of you unfamiliar with Pretty Puke’s work, it is outrageous, sexual, suggestive, provocative and whimsical. The goal for this project was to stand out and be iconic. The clothing line isn’t tied down to just one theme, but instead balances darkly artistic art with more absurd realism – a mash up of both aesthetics into a strange, yet exciting, presentation of streetwear.
