spring-preview-blog2

It’s still winter here in NYC, home of Appaman HQ, but all this talk of swimsuits and tropical vacations has us itching for warm weather and spring fashion. We are excited to treat our fans to a sneak peek of some of the new looks that are on the way.

Can you blame us? Every season, Appaman co-founders Lynn & Harald work step by step with our awesome designers with the goal of creating great looking, comfortable clothing that kids will feel their best in. This season, we experimented with some new styles and bold colors, collaborated with some fantastic illustrators for our artist-designed prints, and carefully refined the fit of some of the returning best sellers. We think you’ll love the result. From our soft, premium cotton signature graphic tees, slouchy cozy sweats, to our fan-favorite Fine Tailoring collection, there’s something special for every kid.

Take a look at some of our Spring 2017 favorites (after the jump):

Our spring/summer 2016 children’s clothing collection brought lots of amazing press coverage! From beloved kids fashion trade magazine Earnshaw’s to new mom bible Pregnancy & Newborn, we appeared in some of our favorite magazines this season. The Appaman spring/summer looks that got the most play in the media included a mix of shorts, pants, swimwear and tees from our warm weather faves.

Some of our favorite celebrity style moments happened this season, too. Actor Ian Chen from the hit TV show Fresh Off The Boat chose to sport an Appaman Fine Tailoring boys suit in his interview with the pop culture source Vulture. Other star studded highlights included our Meyer Bomber Jacket in LV Ten magazine on Breanna Yde of Nickelodeon’s new TV show School of Rock.

Her older daughter wore the bold and bright Abstract Circle Tee with our sporty chic Stanton Jogger pants in a girly shade of salmon rose. Her younger daughter wore our super-fun Ice Cream Circle Tee from our Mini collection of cool baby and toddler clothes.

Meet the Newest Appaman Staffers!

December 12, 2015 in Appaman News

Appaman's newest staffers

In recent months, we’ve welcomed a few new faces here at Team Appaman, and it’s high time we introduce you to the newest members of our crew. As a small company, we’re a sum of our parts and want our fans and customers to get to know who is working hard together behind the scenes to bring your favorite Appaman gear from an idea to a shoppable, wearable and adorable product:

Lisa Christiano Appaman

Lisa Christiano (Wholesale Account Manager)
When our friend Jenna headed back home to her native Texas, Lisa came on board, bringing a longtime love of fashion and a retail background to the wholesale side of Appaman. Lisa is from Rockland County (but moving to Jersey City with her fluffy little dog, Ghost) and loves to read, write, travel, and watch movies. She is always down for some serious Harry Potter chat. But be warned that she’s a loyal Gryffindor before getting into a debate about the best Hogwarts house.

Danielle Civil

Danielle Civil  (Production/Design Assistant)
Remember Intern Dani from our Intern Q&A? Well, she’s back! Dani was such a great intern that we insisted on snatching her back up as a full-time employee as soon as she graduated from the University of Delaware, where she earned a a degree in apparel design and a minor in entrepreneurial business. Dani is from the suburbs of Philly, and loves animals (particularly sloths and manatees, but she has cats, turtles, and fish of her own), travel, photography, yoga, chai tea lattes, and Game of Thrones. Dani has had her sights set on the fashion biz for a long time. In her fifth grade yearbook she predicted that she’d be a fashion designer. Good thinking, fifth grade Dani!

Valerie Schwall

Valerie Schwall (Girls Designer)
It’s a basic requirement that all Appaman employees must love dogs, but for Valerie, it’s an interest that is particularly career relevant! When Valerie was younger, she decided to teach herself to sew by creating clothing and accessories for her dog. Soon after, she applied and was accepted to fashion school with a sewing portfolio composed entirely of dog clothing. At FIT, she expanded her interest to human clothing but still loves making beautiful wardrobes for her fur child, Meatball, who dresses better than many people. Valerie hails from New Paltz, a hippie town in upstate New York, where she gained a soft spot for tie dye. You’ll usually catch her in her signature head-to-toe black, except for when she and Meatball decide to wear matching holiday outfits.

October 20, 2015 in Appaman News

WE WON AN EARNIE!

For the second year in a row, Appaman snagged a prestigious Earnie Award from Earnshaw’s Magazine for Best Outerwear (aka best kids coats and jackets). The Earnie Awards are Earnshaw’s way of recognizing the best children’s brands for their excellence in design. Earnshaw’s is an institution! For almost 100 years, they’ve remained the most influential children’s industry trade magazine. We’re honored to earn their award for best outerwear for girls and boys again.

The 35th annual Earnie’s award ceremony took place last night at the ENK Children’s Club in New York City with a runway show featuring some of our best kids coats. Our Faux Fur Coat in Cameo Pink sashayed down the runway in style.

We are so proud of our 2015 Earnie Award, especially since it came from our peers. All winners of the Earnie Awards were chosen by thousands of retailers and manufacturers in the children’s industry. A huge thanks to everyone who voted for us–we are truly honored!
