Appaman July/August Press Round-Up!

August 18, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, In the news, Press, Star Style

We are so excited here at Appaman to drop our amazing winter line next week. So, we thought we’d do a PRESS ROUND UP of all the places you might have seen Appaman’s  FW17 line out and about.

RACKED 

We got a shout out in one of our favorite fashion blogs, RACKED, in an article on shopping for fun and unique Kid’s clothing. It turns out that Anica John, CEO of Kid Things is a huge Appaman fan! She comments:

 “I knew that I needed to get some brands that do boys’ clothes really well so it would be fun to shop for them.” She cites brands like Appaman and Andy + Evan as ones that carry more imaginative boys’ looks.”

 

APPAMAN IN PARENTS MAGAZINE: FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FEATURE 

You might have seen us Family Fun’s super cute round-up of back-to-school wear. We love the bright  colors and graphics! Can you spot our slim leg denim, our best-selling twill pants in jungle green and our girls Adler tee (the super cute silver donut print is hard to miss!)

 

APPAMAN IN B3 CARIBBEAN

We cannot get enough of this gorgeous cover pic of Ziggy Marley and his family. How handsome do the boys look in our fine tailoring?

 

APPAMAN IN EARNSHAWS JULY

 

We love the sharp styling of this great spread in  Earnshaw’s July magazine. You can see our Navy Windowpane suit (available now), and our favorite Faux fur girls coat in Garnet.

Appaman is a favorite for so many of our pocket-sized stars of stage and screen. Check it out!

An Appaman Baby Shower

May 9, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, DIY

Appaman HQ loves to celebrate, and what better occasion than a new baby?

Operations Manager Alyssa is expecting her first child, and with her due date right around the corner, we gathered the staff and headed to Brooklyn for a garden party baby shower at Lynn & Harald’s house.

A note from our founders: Support the Malala Fund for International Women’s Day

March 7, 2017 in Appaman News

IMG_4379-1

Wednesday, March 8th is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.  At Appaman, it’s a chance to acknowledge the incredible contributions of women specifically in business and the workforce, because as a 95% female team, we feel the weight of this every day.

We work hard, we multitask, we support our fellow colleagues, and we share and celebrate the exciting moments together, including everything from professional or personal successes to internet-breaking news about Beyoncé’s legendary twin pregnancy announcement.

During a recent office meeting, we discussed International Women’s Day, the many events being held this Wednesday around the country and in our own city, and the implications on our staff. We decided that if a team member has an event, a project, a march or an experience they want to have on this day, we would not stop them and the work could wait.

The office will remain open, and to honor this day, we are donating 20% of all Appaman.com sales made through Friday, March 10th to the Malala Fund.

It’s estimated that worldwide, over 30 million primary school-aged girls are out of school, and 98 million will not complete their secondary education. The Malala Fund has a mission to help girls complete 12 years of safe, quality education. This is a cause that Appaman is proud to support.

We have two daughters that don’t want for anything.  As parents, it is a challenge and an important goal to help them understand how privileged they are to have food on the table, clothes on their backs, and, most importantly, the opportunity to attend school.

We hope that you will join us in supporting this cause.

If you are interested in contributing to the Malala Fund through your Appaman.com order, please be sure to place it by 11:59 PM on Friday, March 10, 2017.
For information about the Malala Fund, including more opportunities to give support, please visit www.malala.org.

Lynn and Harald Husum

Need a friend? Print your own foldable Appaman monkey

February 24, 2017 in Appaman News, DIY, In the news

Never be lonely again with the all new Appaman Foldable Monkey!

foldable

Story time!

You may remember that Appaman, Inc. was inspired by and named after the childhood companion of our founder, Harald Husum. When Harald was a kid growing up in Norway, he had a stuffed corduroy monkey named Appaman (“monkey man” in Norwegian) who accompanied him on many fantastic adventures through the fields and fjords. The original Appaman now lives at Appaman HQ in NYC, and while he doesn’t go on as many adventures as he used to, he continues to inspire us, reminding us of the spirit of adventure and imagination of those youthful times.

Now, you can make your very own Appaman to accompany you on your adventures, wherever they may take you. And…it’s free! All you need is a printer, scissors, and either tape or glue. Download and print the PDF from appaman.com/foldable, cut out, and assemble your 3-D papercraft Appaman figure according to the included instructions. (Hey kids: Go wrangle yourself an adult to help with some of the trickier cuts, especially if you print it on heavy paper)

For a limited time we’re including one paper foldable, pre-printed in full color on glossy cardstock, in every Appaman.com order. This special thank you gift for our customers is ready for you to cut, fold, glue, and — most importantly — play with!

Don’t forget to share your adventures with us! We’d love to document all the shenanigans that Appaman is getting into all over the world. Take a photo of your paper Appaman, post it on Instagram, tag us (@appaman) and hashtag your photo #appamanfoldable. Be sure to tell us where he is!

Check out this video and watch a paper Appaman come to life:

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.
