Vans Presents The Geoff Rowley Signature Collection

Vans have finally lifted the lid on Geoff Rowley’s signature collection, consisting of apparel and footwear, that is set to hit stores for Autumn.

Rowley has been an integral part of the Vans team since joining back in 1999, and during that time he has continued to build his legacy as not only one of the greatest skateboarders in the UK but on a global scene. He is renowned as a pioneer in street skating, with a bag full of big tricks and a unique energy, he has pushed skateboarding forward with his hard work ethic and dedication to his craft. He brings all of these themes into the collection and these characteristics lay the foundation for the release, with style and durability to match the rigours of skating at the highest level.

The Vans [Rowley] Solos are inspired by the original made in the USA Era’s which were one of the first ever shoes made by the skate giants. The premise was to transform the legendary shoe to perform better but still maintain elements that have made it as iconic as it is today. The shoes natural canvas and premium suede uppers have been reinforced with Vans’ Duracap foot protection. Vans’ Ultracush HD high-impact polyurethane under the foot enhances cushioning while the addition of the patented waffle outsole gives unrivalled grip. Available in four seasonal colour ways for the fall, the Solo’s will be accompanied by Geoff’s first apparel collection with the brand that follows a similar colour palette. The release offers up a robust selection of apparel from ‘sturdy stretch’ twill GR chinos, cotton canvas workwear shirts and lightweight jacket, as well as four ‘wicked dry’ tees and patchwork headwear.

Aside from the sure to be popular footwear selection, it’s great to see Vans pushing the apparel side of their pro range, which has been seemingly more prominent in the brands output since the arrival of AVE’s line. With a high focus on functionality and the technical features in the design, the collection represents further development for Vans as they build on the momentum and hype around the brand following the popularity of Propeller.

The Vans Rowley Solos will be launching in stores worldwide this Saturday, June the 13th. With the apparel you will have to wait slightly longer, scheduled to drop worldwide on the 1st of July. Be sure to check out the video below for more on the legend himself.



Introducing: ALIGN


UK based ALIGN present their inaugural collection this Winter, reworking sportswear classics into street ready staples.

Athletic styles from both in and around the field of play have always been a huge part of the streetwear aesthetic. ALIGN have approached this collection with consideration to heritage field sports staples such as varsity jackets and rugby shirts, translating these into contemporary pieces that can be worn in everyday life. With the Winter in mind, ALIGN have applied premium materials such as sports mesh, heavyweight loopback jersey, leather and taslan Nylon, for warmth and durability, with hints of 3M reflective material to help you stay visible.

The collection makes use of black across all garments, with splashes of white in the stitching and pocket detailing, as well as the occasional colour block. There is little use of graphics throughout the release, with most of the attention focused around fit and form. All in all its a great initial collection and I’m looking forward to seeing how the brand progresses.

The ALIGN Winter 2014 collection will be arriving shortly at selected size? stores and online at www.size.co.uk


Vans – The Sidestripe Capsule


The iconic sidestripe has come a long way since it was first introduced back in 1977. This Autumn/Winter Vans celebrate the sidestripe with an exclusive t-shirt capsule collection.

Having began it’s life as a mere doodle from Vans founder Paul Van Doren, the globally recognised symbol first appeared on the Vans Old Skool design and has since made it’s way on to several of Vans most loved silhouettes. The capsule collection consists of four t-shirt designs in black, white and navy colour ways, as well as a raglan tee with a black body and white sleeves. Each design displays the sidestripe in different ways including a bold graphic print, pocket designs, as well as making use of Vans equally iconic checkerboard pattern.

The Vans Sidestripe Capsule Collection is available now at select retailers and vans.co.uk.

Channelling themes from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, they apply three separate denim washes, representative of those times, onto the brands 6-panel caps. The release is rounded off with a selection of long and short sleeved tees featuring the hydrant motif graphic and embroidered post horn logo. The concise collection reinforces the brands commitment towards quality and attention to detail throughout, with the fabric used and simplistic design giving the casual active wear a more premium feel.

 PUMA link up with David Obadia and Nelson Hassan, founders of French label Brooklyn We Go Hard (BWGH) for yet another exciting collaboration, celebrating the pairs love for the brand.

Combining PUMA’s rich heritage with BWGH’s Parisian style, the collection includes the XS850 and XS698 (a hybrid of the XS850 and R698) silhouettes. The 90’s runners featuring PUMA’s Trinomic technology create a sporty yet sophisticated style and arrive in an array of colour treatments from colour blocking to the XS850 x BWGH all over CAMO print.

PUMA and BWGH continue to combine sport with style in the apparel collection as they use BWGH’s patterns and measurement charts to ensure designs have a more considered fit. The collection applies colour in a more understated manner, with colour blocking once again used, whilst an Ombre treatment is applied to sweaters which also feature the JOY graphic in BWGH’s famous boucle finish. Key pieces see the use of all over CAMO print once again, as it is applied to tees and technical outerwear.
