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.

Get the Look: Jolie-Pitt Black and White Wedding Style

September 30, 2014 in New This Season, Press, Star Style

Inspired by Brad and Angelina’s coordinating, two-tone family wedding style? We were stoked to see the photos of the infamous Brangelina wedding, but even more excited to see the Jolie-Pitt kids (who are longtime Appaman fans) expressing their individual styles in black and white formalwear.

The oldest and youngest girls opted for a flowing dresses – Vivienne’s is all white, while Zahara’s is white with a black pattern. Shiloh went for tomboy-chic in a suit of her own, pairing a tailored suit jacket with white shirt and matching shorts, accessorizing with a hat & black tie.

The boys (Maddox, Pax, and Knox) were even more coordinated. They matched perfectly in classic black slim fit suits suit with white dress shirts, looking just like Brad, who added a solid black tie.
