We were invited to FBOMB Trading’s press preview this past week over at the Spearmint Pelican Showroom in Liberty Village. We enjoyed an exclusive first look at the upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 collections from Minimum, Native, L-Space, UrbanEars, Marshall Headphones, Kimono, Instance, and Etnies. Check out some of my favourite pieces!
Native: Inspired by classic, casual silhouettes, but made with the lightest and most comfortable material available, Native Shoes are the best of both worlds.
Generic Surplus: Founded in Los Angeles as an extension of The Generic Man, Generic Surplus aims to continually push the evolution of everyday shoe design while simultaneously capturing the spirit and aesthetic of the city’s diverse, modern-day urban landscape. From the desert to the sea and places in between, our shoes aptly reflect the authentic nature of the music, art and fashion scenes we, and our wearers, are so connected to.
Kimono: One of the greatest advantages of travel is that it blurs the boundaries. Komono has always had a thirst for blurring the lines between the classic and the new, between design and fashion, between male and female, between minimalism and color, between accessories and lifestyle.
L-Space Swimwear: Described as sophisticated beach chic, glam surfer girl, and most definitely fashion-forward swimwear, L*Space is an award-winning brand, recognized as SIMA’s (Surfwear Industry Manufacturer’s Association) swimwear brand of the year — seven consecutive years.
Stance Socks: STANCE is dedicated to the spirit of individuality with a design philosophy that believes in expression and function. Expression that creates an emotional visual connection and function that also provides comfort and performance. Building outstanding socks with the best fit and performance characteristics from the highest quality materials is the unspoken priority. The outward facing personality of the brand and our products are the creative and artistic stories that go into every single sock we make.
Etnies: Manufacturer and retailer of action sports footwear and apparel.
Marshall Headphones & UrbanEars Headphones: Marshall is a true rock legend. That uniquely clear and expressive sound combined with mythical stage presence has enraptured music fans around the world for five decades. Celebrating brand’s rich heritage with commemorative products that live and breathe Marshall. Urbanears is a collective out of Scandinavia, motivated by a common interest in global relationships and shared involvement in the relevance of the living brand. Urbanears promotes a deeper connection to color, form and people while providing the freedom to transcend individuality and unify the sound experience.
