Echelon Lookbook | Spring/Summer 2013


With summer right around the corner, Echelon, a local Norcal clothing brand based out of San Jose recently released their Spring/Summer line lookbook. Now while we usually don’t post much about local brands, Echelon will be along side us at our Show and Meet on the 21st at Umigo! All the clothing shown in this lookbook will be available on the day of the show, simply look for their banner. While not all of their products are displayed in this lookbook, it gives us a pretty good idea of what their line will look like this season, simply not like any other clothing brand; becoming unique while still styling along trends in vogue (and no not the magazine).

It’s Coming, Get Ready!

Coming Soon

The Hundreds | Spring 2013 Lookbook

A new year means new seasons, new seasons mean new fashion, and The Hundreds are going right with the flow, releasing their Spring 2013 Lookbook. Mirrors seem to be a running theme through the whole book and it actually looks like they’re trying to go back to some older styled designs while still heading forward in the fashion game. These will definitely be must-haves for Spring and even into the warm, summer months. The collection will also be available via the The Hundreds Online Shop on Monday, February 4th, 2013.

Nike SB | Dunk Low Black/Clear Jade

Not quite “Tiffany Dunks” or even the color tiffany color actucally, this is techanically “Jade” which appears to be slightly darker than tiffany. In my opinion these are damn pretty though, the color placement of the black and jade is absolutely on point. These should be available towards the end of the month. [highsnobiety]

Nike SB | Pool Service Blazer

Designed by legendary skater Lance Mountain, the Pool Service Blazer features a grey leather upper, gold stitching and gold metal eyelets. Watch the video, and this whole “pool service” thing might make more sense to you. Its actually a pretty clever video, which happens to also be created by Lance Mountain.

Nike Air Force 1 Low 30th Anniversary Series

The 25th Anniversary series of the AF-1 brought some great designs, we expect the 30th Anniversary Series to be even better. Nike is starting off the series a classic black on black and white on white colorway with XXX accents placed in various locations.

“The white versions features uppers constructed mainly from 3M light reflective synthetic leather, while the translucent soles are slightly off-white, which makes for subtle contrast to a simple colour scheme.

The blacks employ a denim fabric almost all over the shoes, including the midsoles! Black nubuck leather is used for the swooshes, on the heels and as piping around the panels, again providing rather interesting details for a basic colourway.” – Nike
