Akio Footwear

With the deep-rooted belief that time is at the heart of any good product, the Akio brand concept is to build from the ground up. From the sole unit through the vamp to the final cut, Akio blends classic athletic structure with a minimal, modern aesthetic.

Successfully satisfying the hard-to-fill gap between sneakers and smart footwear, Akio’s simple, clean designs are executed with lifestyle in mind. Months of research delivered a fusion between often contrasting concepts – something authentic, relevant and progressive – the result was its first model, The Orion. Striving to marry simplistic design principles with rich fabric detailing and precise colour placement, the label’s minimal branding throughout keeps things low-key and stylish but with a premium touch.


APN encourages its wearer to have “courage in your curiosity”. Originated as a US vintage sweatshirt brand, the label combines the taste and influence of Americana with the wit and humour firmly established through its British routes. The registered trademark was designed with the classic varsity and MAD Magazine logo merged together – the idea of the establishment from one side and “what me worry” at the other. Showing that “opposites attract” is what runs through the heart of APN.

The brand’s registered sign, It’s Just a Ride, pays homage to American comedian, social critic, satirist and musician Bill Hicks’ epilogue from his 1991 Relentless tour. It was said that the skating style of Craig Stecyk, founder of Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Productions, introduced an outlaw edge to boarding's visual lexicon – most notably in the shape of graffiti at a time when it was still considered a low-rent public nuisance, on a par with fly tipping, rather than art. Both Hicks and Stecyk’s attitudes form the influence and the ethos behind the creative standards of APN SPRAY.SKATE.SURF.


With its roots dating back to 1911 and the textile mills of Biella in Northern Italy, Fila packs more than 100 years of heritage into its collection.

Having forever been associated with champions from a variety of sports including tennis and basketball, along with musicians and hip-hop’s elite from the world over – these stars stand out not only for their memorable achievements, but also for the unique, iconic Fila designs they were so closely associated with over the years. Delving into the label’s vast archives for spring/summer 2016, Fila celebrates its sporting heritage while paying homage to the pillars of hip-hop with a new collection of retro-influenced pieces, revived and re-designed for the contemporary, casual consumer.

Mitchell & Ness

Founded as a golf and tennis company in 1904, Mitchell & Ness Sporting Goods provided on-field uniforms to the Philadelphia Eagles, athletics and Phillies in as early as 1933.

The Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Company was created in the 80s, based on the idea to resurrect authentic jerseys significant to sports history. A pioneer in this field, the brand is now known worldwide for authentic classic jerseys and sports/lifestyle affiliated headwear – holding licenses for the MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLS and NCAA, along with collaborating with various brands along its journey to global success – “Defining Authentic” for over 110 years.

Crooks & Castles

Multi-faceted streetwear brand Crooks & Castles presents its spring/summer 2016 collection. Classic tees, caps, hoods and sweats sit alongside premium fashion pieces, honing a strong designer element.

Founded in Los Angeles in 2002, the label has established itself as a label that can be worn in many ways – from the street to the club VIP lounge. The latest collection is all about the street life, the fame and the fortune of the underworld, exemplifying the thrill of the hustle and the fall of succumbing to fast money and the responsibilities we have to face.

Your Own

Your Own is about taking every day as it comes – it’s not just a brand; it’s a way of life. Think hedonistic sunsets, festival veterans, lazy days, mental mornings, pioneering collaborations, doing it with style, family, friends, Balearic beats, dance floors of the world, calming sunrises, superstar DJs, mods ’n’ skins, clean lines and aggressive estates.

The brand was founded by infamous Manchester tearaways Christopher and Anthony Donnelly, whose careers mirror British youth culture, from the 80s football terraces to the acid-house boom. Their confrontational style led to clashes with the government as well as acclaim from British icons such as Vivienne Westwood. In turn, the label’s clothing is a statement, loaded with authenticity and notoriety – yet Your Own is not where you’re from; it’s wear you’re going.


Founded in 1920 to make aircraft tires for the aviation industry – post World War II and the resulting halt in aircraft manufacturing, as demand for its product subsided – Palladium put its canvas and rubber expertise to use, producing footwear with the same famed-functionality and long-lasting wear of its military-grade aircraft tires.

Soon, the brand became the outfitter of the legendary French Foreign Legion, with its classic canvas Pampa boot worn by the fashion conscious from Europe and beyond. Now, over 60 years later, the historic shoemaker’s timeless design of its signature style is as relevant as ever. With three main silhouettes – low, hi-top, and fold-over hi – proponents of travel, available again for explorers worldwide.
