Thanks to John Pangilinan and the Hundreds for this recent post following last week's mens shows in Vegas. The images below feature some upcoming product for Fall '14 including our Mont Blanc Pack and new olive version of the Lexdray Ibiza Pack.
Another tradeshow season has come and gone. With it, another successful Capsule show for us. Big thanks to all the buyers and press for coming out and giving the show purpose. Special thanks to Selectism for including our Aspen Soft Case as part of your Capsule Selects Exhibit. We appreciate the love! Great to see all of our friends and industry connects as always. We'll see everyone again in 2015.
Last week we finalized a custom designed installation at Conveyor, our retail partner inside Fred Segal Santa Monica. Much like our brand, creating something that offered versatility and function was paramount. It also needed to provide a way to creatively feature our entire current product assortment. The idea for the installation was based on wall-mounted perforated pegboard most commonly used in the garage as a way to organize tools.
If you live in Los Angeles or have plans to visit Santa Monica in the coming weeks, certainly stop by and check it out (8/18/14 through 9/8/14).
Japanese fashion and lifestyle publication, EyesCream, has featured our London Garment in their most recent September 2014 issue. We are thrilled to see our bags continue popping up in such influential Japanese publications.
Pick up the August 2014 Men's Non-no (Japan) issue for a breakdown on our most recent Tokyo Pack. Thanks Men's Non-no!
MonoMax Japan (one of our favorite Japanese publications) has featured our recently released Summer 2014 Boulder Pack in their August 2014 issue. This issue features top rated products on the market, and they've rated the Boulder Pack the No. 1 new pack for storage capacity. Special thanks to MonoMax for this award.
We recently completed an amazing lifestyle shoot featuring our Summer 2014 Collection. Together with the ultra-talented 5pts, we got up early to follow two riders as they ventured up the Pacific Coast Highway starting in Malibu. The small Summer collection, which consists of new editions of three of our signature styles (Tokyo Pack, Boulder Pack and Shanghai Tote), was inspired by the California coastline so the shoot was a natural fit. It also helped that we had two unique motorcycles including a Triumph Thruxton and extremely limited Ecosse Heretic from Ecosse Moto Works. Special thanks to our riders, and to 5pts for capturing the day.
Inspired by the California coastline, we've reissued new editions of three of our signature styles for Summer '14. Beginning today, the Tokyo Pack, Boulder Pack and Shanghai Tote are available in black ballistic nylon with a custom camo lining, striped webbing and navy accents. In traditional Lexdray fashion, each has been produced in limited runs. Styles are available on lexdray.com and select Lexdray retail partners.
Each year we designate a program or foundation to donate product to and create some free of charge design work. This year we decided to work with the Colorado Mens Basketball Program (our Creative Director's alma mater). We recently delivered the appropriately named, Boulder Packs, to the Athletic Department which included a special Lexdray designed CU Buffs Hoops Patch stitched to the side of each bag. These were the final remaining khaki/black colored Boulder Packs, which are CU colors and a perfect match for the program. We look forward to future projects with the team and congratulate them on a successful 2013 season. Check out the images below.
