ISP(r)Oducts 2009: Outerwear!
After ISP(e)Ople and ISP(r)Oriders posts, it is time for what you are all waiting for: ISP(r)Oducts!
We start with a selection of outerwear pieces from 32, 686, Airblaster, Analog, Bond, Burton, eleven, Grenade, Horsefeather, Nikita, Picture, Sessions, Volcom, Westbeach and Zimtstern. We will cover Holden in detail in our video interview with Mikey LeBlanc in a few days.
We had to make a selection of brands because there is so much to see and to show. And even in this selection we only show some pieces otherwise we would have died of overdose! However we have some PR kits from 32, Burton, Sessions and Grenade and a ton of catalogues so if you are looking for anything special hit us with a mail or leave us a comment on this post. Oh Yeah, and flash news: Neff is also entering the outerwear market with a small collection that is due to grow and get a pro team…
Next year bright, bold colors are still super hot. That’s what we appreciated in particular in the collections from eleven, Bond, Session, Volcom and Airblaster. Plaid, jacquards, herringbones and some dye tie are also dominating the market.
But more than the designs trends it’s the eco trend that is really the unifying factor between all brands in 2009/10! Some call it jumping on the bandwagon but for others it’s simply doing what is needed to protect our Mother Nature! Two new small brands have to be pointed out: the French Picture which is launching it’s first collection in March and Bond from California. Bond recently signed TJ Schneider to its team. Both brands approach is all about sustainability without compromising the tech and the look! We like that! Bond jackets for example feature a water resistant “Waste Management Pocket” for all the crap we carry around when riding (cigarette buds, exploded tube of sunscreen, candy wrapper…). Pretty smart.
Volcom, Protest, Rip curl or 32 are all using PET from recycle plastic bottles in their apparel. A couple of brands like Vans or Billabong have partnerships with Jeremy Jones’ foundation POW, giving all the proceed to the organisation.
Finally specially for the girls, we have some nice pieces from B for Burton and of course Nikita! Sick stuff from Nikita again next year. The Nikita booth was in fact nothing else than a fashion show with walk-off challenges every couple of hours! We liked the wear and the models of course! Chafouincrew rpzt.
