That’s a Wrap! Behind the Scenes at the Spring/Summer 2016 Photoshoot

June 1, 2015 in Appaman News, NYC

It’s that time of year: We’ve styled, shot, and wrapped yet another Appaman Spring/Summer collection. We have so much fun hanging out with our models and watching all of our hard work come to life on camera.

As always, it’s all hands on deck to make sure these busy few days run smoothly. It’s a challenge, and sometimes a bit hectic to keep all the clothes and kids where they need to be at the right time, but with a little teamwork and a whole lot of organization, we somehow manage to get it all done and have a good time.

We are really excited about some great new designs we have in store for our fans and wish we could show you more, but you’ll have to wait til Spring 2016 to see the full collection in stores. For now, here are a few behind the scenes photos of our recent shoot here in our Chrystie Street studio. Stay tuned til next spring!

Spring is here at Appaman

February 11, 2015 in Appaman News, New This Season

Hey, Appaman fans! We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand new Spring 2015 collection, now available to shop on Appaman.com.  Though Punxatawney Phil, our nation’s favorite groundhog, has decided that we have a few more weeks of winter left, we’re too excited about our great, new warm weather styles to think too much about the chilly weather here in New York City.

We’d like to share a video with you that features some of our new styles, plus a preview of some late spring/early summer styles that are on their way (available next month). Shot on location in Brooklyn, NYC, with beautiful drone camerawork and direction from MCM Productions, we think it totally captures Appaman clothing worn for its primary purpose: playing and having fun.

Check out the full video below, or scroll down for highlights (more at the jump). Be sure not to miss the cameo by our furry mascot, Party Hat Husum!)

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.)

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.

Getting inspired? Shop these looks and create your own with Appaman Fine Tailoring for boys and girls.
