Ten Speed Hero is one of the best cycling brands to emerge from the new road culture, spurned in the mainstream by Rapha, but more in the fringes by lines like MASH, Cedar and TSH. There’s a real art-academia influence to TSH designs and presentation, a cerebral approach to the simplest of pleasures (simple, but on a fresh carbon whip with Campy nawmean). Lots of great stuff in this release, cop now before your favs are gone.
Spring/Summer 2014 from blauge favourites Wild Things featuring the consistent lookbook styling we’ve come to appreciate season after season. Mountain/ocean hippie Americana Japanese-reframed outdoors magic, this brand is one of the best.
One of our most anticipated seasonal lookbooks since the brand’s inception, andwander here shows off their s/s 2014 range. We love nature, we love outdoors gear, and we love the simple beauty of the pieces and presentation – always consistent, always innate.
White Mountaineering have dropped their latest lookbook for the spring/summer 2014 season. This time around they are offering their introductory womenswear collection, which I might add is looking damn good. The mens looks are on point as well, with some serious prints and patterns but I am more into the muted tech styles, but its all very interesting.
Hot on the tail of the Carhartt WIP spring/summer 2014 collection for the fellas here is a look at the seasonal offerings for the ladies. Very similar styling from both the mens and women’s ss14 ranges, lots of pattern, pops of colour as well as muted more natural tones. This is a great example of how the ladies can rock the shit out of menswear styles, hats tipped.
Here is a look at a great new lookbook from Japanese outdoors brand Rulezpeeps featuring items from their fall/winter 2013 collection. The lookbook is titled ‘Winter Road Trip’ and features some cold weather surf trip action. It reminds me of my first time surf experience here on Van Isle, it was a cold Decmember day with snow on the ground and the swell was pumping. This collection has some real stand outs for the whole fam, with mens women’s and baby gear these guys are sure to have you covered.
.efiLevol retutrns with this spring/summer 2014 collection for both men and women… and as with season’s past, it’s the female side of the label that shines in this lookbook. Styled to perfection on a cooler-climate angle these looks would work great for a lot of the ladies in our lives… much to pull from here. The season’s theme is ‘Gateau Naval’ and there’s definitely a bit of a nautical theme throughout… click though for much more from this lengthy lookbook.
Being raised on the west coast of Canada we are more than familiar with some good old fashioned camping, we grew up on that shit. That said here is the latest from Japanese outdoor specialists andwander and their lookbook for the autumn/winter 2013 season. The lookbook is shot in their classic style, real outdoors goodness with a Japanese flair, starting off with some more ‘heritage’ inspired styles then moving through to the more technical items for both men and women. Click through on this one as there is a ton of great imagery.
