RECAP: AGENDA TRADESHOW

OUTSIDEAGENDA

LA CANVAS hit up the Agenda Trade Show in Long Beach this past week, and now we can’t shake the feeling that we need an entirely new wardrobe for fall. Connection? Maybe. Agenda is like stepping into a world where everyone is really cool-looking and wants to hand you their business card. Well, there are worse ways to spend an afternoon. As we made our way through the varying aisles of the latest in streetwear, we caught up with some of our old favorites, along with our most anticipated up-and-comers in the game.

Check out some of our highlights from the tradeshow.

 

HAT

 

PANTMAN

SHOEMAN

Creative Recreation has been using a lot of pony hair this season with their own line and their upcoming collaboration with Barney’s (left).

 

BlondeDudeHoldingShorts

Rhythm‘s soft and wearable board shorts with a giant orange.

 

THESHOESDUKE

Reebok always gives us what we want: old school, but never boring.

 

ZANE

Zanerobe shows some LAC love while we can’t stop thinking about those perfectly tailored sweatshirts.

 

This year Agenda previewed their first ever women’s collective — aptly named Agenda WMNS — which seems a little overdue, but I guess we’ll let it slide. Now, the ladies in the industry have a place beyond the sea of printed board shorts and scantily-clad women used as marketing tools (we’re not bitter . . . ).

 

WOMANWITHDRESS

It was matchy-matchy over at Mink Pink, a perfect summer vibe.

 

PEEPSBSHOPPIN

It was poppin’ at Hellz Bellz, and we know it’s because their collection is exactly what women want to wear.

 

COOLPEOPLE

YRU is bringing it with their platforms in just about every style and color you can think of. Props.

 

LADY

Tavik‘s women’s swimwear is all about neoprene and mesh and we’re not mad about it.

 

All-in-all, it was a successful couple of days at the Agenda Tradeshow and we can’t wait to see what’s next for these labels. Not pictured/honorable mention: the mini horse dressed as a unicorn next to the food trucks.

RECAP: BAY STREET BAZAAR

The first ever BAY STREET BAZAAR was all kinds of fun this past Saturday, mostly because it gave us an excuse to hang out with all of our best pals and (not) share a Jarritos ice cream float.  Our friends at Koshka co-hosted the downtown shopping party and had a pretty bangin’ set-up stacked with über-cute pieces from recent collections, but we’re not here to play favorites.

Who can forget the dope-ness brought by Hellz Bellz, Love+Made, Miss Wax, See You Monday, and that epic Bart Simpson denim shirt from 90s Lullaby. There was not a chip in sight, thanks to manicures by Scratch, and even more beautification was taking place with help from Root Beauty.

The dudes at UPXUNDR were killing it with their take on modern street wear, along with Undefeated, Stussy, GPPR and Us Versus Them. The shopping experience was rounded out with hats from Goorin Bros., who have been providing people with high-quality headwear since 1895.

Outside, The Flower Truck brought color to the already vibrant refreshment lounge where Jarritos was slinging soda floats to the sweet-deprived. Satisfied shoppers hung out and watched live art by Paige Smith along with other installations by local artists Gregory Siff and Tyler Spangler.

PBR helped populate the beer garden and made sure the beer pong games never ran dry. All of this while DUBLAB.com‘s DJs spun just the right vibe to focus our attention on the task at hand: SHOPPING.

SARTORIAL PORN: A. SAUVAGE SS14

1.ADRIEN-SAUVAGE-JOURNAL

London-based designer Adrien Sauvage knows how to keep guys looking so fresh and so clean-clean in typical A. Sauvage style of “dress easy.” The celeb fashion consultant and former professional basketball player recently released his SS14 collection, full of nature prints and light-colored, earth-tone pieces that reflect Adrien’s multicultural heritage of West Africa and The British Isles.

Inspired by his great-grandfather’s move from Nigeria to Scotland in the 1950s, the young designer used Savannah landscape prints by German artist Nelson Crespo for his tees and pullovers, while using English solids and Scottish-influenced plaid textiles for his more sophisticated items, smoothly blending modern street casual with traditional menswear.

Basquiat

Just like in previous A. Sauvage collections, artist Basquiat served as a muse. The radiant child, who famously walked down the runway for Commes des Garçon in the 80s, had his own personal style of natural coolness, usually wearing boyish outfits and tailored fitting suits.
