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 or from one of our retailers.

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 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.

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 !

WOW! My boy’s got style!

Appaman is excited to launch our ambitious collection that has every intention of growing from season to season. It’s called “Appaman Fine Tailoring” and it’s stylish, dapper and just what the mothers ordered.

We figured that everybody has that special event, and shopping for suits and blazers is just no fun unless you add a lil’ sumpin’ sumpin’. We did, and here is the first of that result.

We have the cutest Mod Suit. It is a Euro slim cut with gorgeous lines and yummy fabric. The lining alone will make you weep – The all over monkey print with red piping just completes the look perfectly.

Tim Gunn would, without a doubt, be impressed. This must-have piece is in stores now so go on and get yourselves one for your man.
