Parker’s Picks

September 26, 2018 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, Featured, New This Season, NYC, Press, Star Style

This is us star Parker Bates put together his favorite fall pieces for some easy back to school looks.

See below to steal his back to school style.

 

Is that Clark Kent hanging behind the library shelves? The Shelby Cardigan in Aztec paired with the Space Dab tee in Navy is the perfect mixture of preppy chic for hitting the books.

Best part of back to school? Catching up with your friends at lunch! Parker rocks the Glen Hooded Sweatshirt in Sidewalk Plaid (already a smash hit this season) paired with the X’Cellent Fine Line Long Sleeve tee, Slim Leg denim jeans in Distressed Black. This look is rugged laid back cool at its best.

Leo season might be past but that doesn’t mean you cant keep channelling King of the Jungle well into Fall. Parker pairs the Graphic Long Sleeve Lion Tee in Black the Flannel Shirt in Baked Apple Plaid for trans-seasonal style.

 

 

HYPEKIDS X APPAMAN

April 6, 2018 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, Featured, In the news, NYC, Press

In case you missed it, this month we were lucky enough to team up with the folks at Hypekids on a fun, food-themed shoot at local hotspot, Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain. Here, we give you an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek.

Getting some inspo from our favorite superhero

When we weren’t taking photos, we were mostly just enjoying sweet treats such as ice cream, pie and cookies (the treats they cook up at the Farmacy are SO YUMMY!).

…I guess we are in for a treat??

The shoot features sunglasses from Sons & Daughters, a super cool Canadian company that specializes in sun-safe, trendy eyewear for kids.

Photographer Extraordinaire Eddie Lee at work

The kids also wore super cool kicks by Vans – we all particularly loved the limited-edition SpongeBob SquarePants shoes (we’re happy to report they come in adult sizes too).

Our Head of Marketing enjoying a well-earned coffee after the shoot.

A huge thank you to the wonderful staff at Brooklyn Farmacy for having us – there will be multiple trips back for ice cream sundaes, whoopie pies and sandwiches. You can follow them on Instagram or Facebook for drool-worthy food pics.

Our Head of Wellness, Party Hat, waiting outside to approve the final shots (and also for pats and treats).

Appaman on the Orange Carpet

March 26, 2018 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, In the news, Press, Star Style

It’s the Nickelodeon’s night of nights, when all our favorite pint-sized stars dress in their finest to strut their stuff on the orange carpet. Here’s a round-up of our fave Appaman looks from the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

Parker Bates and Prestyn Bates

Appaman’s favorite brothers Parker Bates and Prestyn Bates were absolute stars on the Orange Carpet this weekend. Parker rocked it in our Mod Suit in Raspberry and Burger Tee, and styled the look with white sneakers and a casual rolled sleeve. E! Online LOVED his look.  Prestyn went in full-burger mode in our Burger Tee and Pattern Shirt with jeans and boots. Snap up these sharp orange carpet looks for yourself now – all styles still available online!

 

JD McCrary

Appaman fan favorite JD McCrary looked super fly in our Mod Suit in Navy Windowpane from FW17. JD is already a household name thanks to THAT performance with Childish Gambino at the Grammys, but he is set to be a worldwide star after landing the role of Young Simba in the upcoming film production of The Lion King. (Sidenote: there was huge excitement in the office when this film adaption was announced – Beyoncé as Nala? Yes, please.) JD styled the suit with white sneakers, a necklace and a casual white tee. The Mod Suit is no longer available in the Navy Windowpane option, but luckily we have a fresh spring update on the blue suit, the Mod Suit in French Blue, plus other Fine Tailoring looks to style your way. Like JD, you can style this with a tee and sneakers, or go formal with dress shoes, a shirt and bow tie.

 

Seth Carr 

Seth Carr played the flashback version of Michael B. Jordon as a young Erik Killmonger in Marvel’s Black Panther – so you KNOW he’s set to be a huge star. The film just grossed over a billion dollars at the box office; and is breaking records left, right and center. We are so proud that Seth picked out our suit for the red carpet – we LOVE the styling with a casual stripe tee and rolled sleeves.

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!)

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.
