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:

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.
