The Asbjørnsen Family Goes ‘Round The World With Appaman

June 9, 2015 in In the news, Press

We have a great story to share about some of Appaman’s biggest little fans.

Norwegian dad Ørjan Tunge Asbjørnsen and his wife, Kristine Noraas Asbjørnsen, have set off on a year-long journey around the world with their six sons, Kristian, 9, Joakim, 8,  Aleksander, 7, Fredrik, 4, Daniel, 2, and Marius, 1. They’ve begun in North America, first visiting Florida and the Caribbean before heading to California, with plans that include Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, Bali, Singapore, various countries in Europe, and maybe even a trip to Africa.

And as if that feat alone weren’t impressive enough, they’re doing it all in style — all six boys dress in matching head-to-toe Appaman! Ørjan is a longtime fan of our brand (in fact, he is the one responsible for first bringing Appaman to the Norwegian retail scene), so it was only natural that when packing their bags with durable, fashionable and functional clothing, in sizes that would fit every kid, our clothes made the cut.

During a stop in Los Angeles, writer Silje Kathrine Sviggum met up with the crew and interviewed them for Norway’s Bergen Tidende, where they’ve shared the details of their route, future plans, favorite places so far, and tips for how a family of 8 can travel extensively while actually enjoying each other’s company.

North West Rocks Appaman’s Faux Fur Coat

January 15, 2015 in In the news, Press, Star Style

Ever the fashionista in her year and a half on “the scene,” Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North, is gaining a reputation for rocking the same fashion-forward styles and monochrome color palette as her famous parents.

Recently, North was spotted in one of our favorite pieces from Appaman’s Fall/Winter 2014 line, the Faux Fur Coat in Black (the color that goes with everything)

We love this jacket because it’s versatile enough to glam up just about every outfit — save it for a special occasion, when you need something to go with your fanciest dress, or throw it on over casual jeans or leggings for a look that’s a little wild and — most importantly — a whole lot of fun.

Levi McConaughey Wears Appaman’s Mod Suit at the Hollywood Walk of Fame

November 18, 2014 in In the news, Press, Star Style

Appaman’s Mod Suit has hit the red carpet once again. On Monday, November 17, Matthew McConaughey, along with his wife, Camila Alves, and their kids, Levi, Vida, and Livingston, celebrated the unveiling of Matthew’s star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

The entire family looked as fashion-forward as ever in coordinating shades of white, blue, grey, and charcoal. The girls wore dresses and the guys wore suits. We may be biased, but we think that the couple’s oldest son, longtime Appaman fan Levi, age 6, stole the show in his classic Appaman Mod Suit in Vintage Black.

With a stylish slim cut, comfortable adjustable waistband, and timeless charcoal grey color, the Mod Suit in Vintage Black is one of Appaman’s best selling pieces. Whether you go classic with a crisp, collared Standard Shirt in White (a la Levi), or add a rock-and-roll spin with your favorite sneakers and graphic tee, it always looks great.

It’s not the first time Levi has been spotted in Appaman’s Fine Tailoring Collection. In April, he rocked the Mod Suit in Chambray on the red carpet of a charity gala, putting his dad’s signature laid-back twist on the formal look, and earning the title of People’s “New Fave Mini Style Star.

Even as a little tyke, Levi loved to matched his dad’s dapper style. Here he is wearing the jacket of his Mod Suit in Mist, another Appaman fan favorite, back in 2011:

Levi’s love of Fine Tailoring extends to outerwear, too! In 2012, stayed warm in his trusty Appaman Pea Coat in Charcoal, as pictured here, on a playdate with pal Louis Bullock and mom Sandra. (They must have been swapping style secrets – we later saw Louis make a red carpet appearance in a Mod Suit of his own.)

We love watching this cute kid’s style evolve.

Kickin’ it Old School at Small Fry

Remember when tin can stilts, dominoes, and marbles weren’t overshadowed by DVRs and iPads? Over at Small Fry, they sure do, and our Baseball Henley in and Gym Sweats (below, in Firebrick) were featured in an awesome “Throwback Tuesday” post. Click on over to check out some great ideas for old-school games and toys to introduce to your kids, as well more gorgeous photos of our retro threads.

 Love from Estella 

Estella is a longtime favorite shop for the most fashionable kids in NYC and beyond. In addition to a great selection of quality kids’ clothing (Including yours truly! Not that we’re biased…), you can get the inside scoop and find great fashion/gift ideas on their blog.

So, of course, we were stoked to hear their thoughts on this season’s collection:

Appaman has released photos of its fall 2013 collection and, per usual, it is full of street-smart pieces that are comfortable, practical, and ultra cool. This season’s collection pays homage to iconic American style with vintage varsity jackets, prep school basics, and punk-inspired plaid. As always, the line manages to bring a hint of the founder’s unique Scandinavian perspective into its clothing to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces with tons of street-cred. Whether your kids are at school, heading to practice, or hanging out with friends, Appaman’s pieces allow your kids to discover and explore their own personal style. What’s better than that?

Thanks for the love! Right back at ya.

LilSugar

Always in-the-know LilSugar had great things to say about our  Fall jackets and coats:

As usual, the line’s outerwear is the star of the show with fabulous varsity bomber jackets; puffy, motorcycle-inspired vests; and the boy’s band-inspired Route 1 jacket that he’ll be begging to wear even before the weather turns cool.

Above (L to R, top to bottom): Varsity Jacket in Fire Brick, Argyle Pullover in Pacific Blue, Baseball Henley in Fire Brick, Carroll Shift Dress in Poppy, Route 1 Jacket in Black, Bulldog Tee in Snow, Hoodie Dress in Carnation, Sidecar Tee in Fire Brick, Hooded Henley in Pacific Blue.
