Colors of Summer – Our Tribute to Ombre

May 2, 2013 in Featured, New This Season

Is there any palette more inspirational than that of Mother Nature herself? For our Spring/Summer 2013 collection, we were inspired by the blissful beauty of the ocean, where all it takes is sand, a surfboard, and a little sun to make a truly perfect day from sunrise to sunset.

We took the natural ombres from the sea and the sky to make great color options for beach bum boys and girls.

Take a look at some of our inspiration and outfit ideas:

Star Style: Loretta Broderick Wears Appaman’s Boutique Blazer On Her Walk With Sarah Jessica Parker

April 18, 2013 in New This Season, Star Style

It looks like one of SJP’s fashionable twins has added another piece of Appaman outerwear to her growing collection! Tabitha and Loretta Broderick, twin daughters of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, love to go out in Appaman jackets year round (like we mentioned yesterday), and we think Loretta looks incredibly sweet and chic in her newest ensemble, which features our Spring 2013 Boutique Blazer in Huckleberry.

Sarah Jessica recently told PEOPLE magazine’s Celebrity Babies blog that Tabitha and Loretta are the ones coordinating their outfits, from head to toe, accessories included. “They pick out their own clothes every single day,” she said. “We have a routine. They pick out their clothes at 3 o’clock when they wake up from their nap.”

She insists that their spot-on fashion choices, which you can see here in PEOPLE’s gallery of Broderick twin style, are completely their own. “We tell them nothing. We just give them the temperature outside and if they don’t pick enough clothing, then we say, ‘You need leggings or pants. You need to add something so you’ll be warm enough.’ That’s all they would listen to.”

The Boutique Blazer ($93, also available in Silver Moon) is part of Appaman’s Fine Tailoring collection, recently expanded to include girls. The blazer is fitted with crop length sleeves to give it a classic, feminine look.

Artist Capsule Collection: AVONE for Appaman Spring Summer 2013

March 13, 2013 in Appaman News, New This Season, NYC

Every season, we join forces with local graffiti style street artists to create our Artist Capsule Collection. This season’s designs come from AVONE, the artist who inspired our very first ACC, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. His new series is inspired by the many historic and iconic landmarks of NYC, and his unique take on New York really shines through in his work.

Recently, AVONE stopped by to visit Appaman HQ and signed our evolving graffiti board. So even if we sell out of everyone of his awesome t-shirts, he has forever left his mark here at Appaman!

AVONE’s current collection features three unique styles: the Train Tee, the World Fair Tee, and the Williamsburg Bridge Tee. Each is available in two different colors. Shop the collection now on Appaman.com or from one of our retailers.

Watch Now: The Spring/Summer ’13 Video is Here!

February 8, 2013 in Appaman News, New This Season

Get ready, Appaman fans! Our Spring/Summer 2013 collection is already arriving in stores, and soon you’ll be able to get it right here on Appaman.com. As always, we’ve got a special treat, a super fun behind-the-scenes video (with super catchy original music by Boots) where you get to see some awesome boys and girls in our awesome new threads, demonstrating how they look “in action.”

This video was shot in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a neighborhood near and dear to our hearts that was hit hard last year by Hurricane Sandy. Watching this clip gives of lots of happy memories of good times in BK, and we hope you have as as much fun watching it as we did making it!

Though if you watch it with your kids, you might have to explain what boomboxes and cassette tapes are first. Ah, youth.

Accessories are Awesome!

Here at HQ we are so excited about new and adventurous categories we can explore at Appaman.

This summer we were so thrilled to unveil the Appaman Flip Flops. They are sturdy, adorable and are great to accessorize any and all summer go to outfits. The all over monkey print makes us smile and the X-Large even fits a few employees. The infant sizes have an elastic strap to avoid accidents. Get them while you can!! We promise some fun add-ons are coming for back to school!!

We are very excited to launch the Spring ACC Collection. Once again Harald managed to find some incredibly talented artists selling on the streets of SOHO. SRC crew is based out of Brooklyn, NYC, they specialize in graffiti-style artwork. Founded in 2008 and started as a two-man team consisting of Jake “Drip” McDonough and Eric “Wics2” Cheung. Upon the passing of Drip, the team consists of Julian “Skare” Weiss and the original co- founder, Wics2. They are notorious for selling their artwork on the street and have gained recognition in graffiti and design cultures, having done work for Sid Chidiac, Liaison, Go Gangrene. Each member of the crew has their own style, and when mixed together create a plethora of visually-stunning imagery. They can always be found on Broadway and Spring St, in SoHo, NYC.” Check it all out here !
