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.

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.
