We commissioned London based creative agency, Breaks, to conceptualize and take the creative lead on our Portland Sneaker Duffel Lifestyle Shoot - man did they deliver.
To showcase the bag’s versatility and performance, they tagged along on one guy’s trip through London with the Portland Sneaker Duffel in tow. They made stops at the famed London Hotel, The Hoxton, the King’s Cross St. Pancras tube station, and other iconic locales, crisscrossing between business and pleasure. Shot by London-based photographer Rich MacIver under the direction of creative agency BREAKS, the look book highlights the bag’s ability to work in any situation, whether recreational or professional, with sophisticated inspiration and impeccable style. And of course, all while keeping your sneakers top of mind.
Special thanks London based creative agency, Breaks, for featuring the fashion editorial they shot of our FW16 products. Shot in the heart of London's financial district, photographer Rich MacIver did an incredible job of creatively capturing our product in motion.
Men's Fashion and Lifestyle blog, The Manual, recently featured our FW 2016 Collection, encouraging readers to "Show off their inner designer." Special thanks of The Manual for their ongoing support of our brand.
Our FW16 Lifestyle Shoot took place at the Port of Oakland. Our usual travel theme was in full effect in support of our new dark navy hue inspired by our love for all things maritime. The surroundings proved to be an incredible backdrop featuring shipping containers, cargo ships, container cranes, train tracks and more. Featured items include 5 new bags (Tokyo Pack, Vienna Pack, Rome Pack, Amsterdam Brief, Mumbai Messenger) as well as 3 new pieces of apparel displaying our 6X's logo in our signature color pallet. Special thanks to our photographer and brand ambassador Enrique Espinoza @ozenrique.
For FW 2016, we've expanded our Symmetry Collection by adding a deep navy blue hue inspired by our love for all things maritime. The sea-worthy fabric is our custom rip-stop nylon fused with durable mesh, which gives the fabric a subtle diamond-shaped pattern, and is of course, water-resistant. The release includes three new bags—the Rome Pack, Amsterdam Brief and Mumbai Messenger—and two of our best sellers, the Tokyo Pack and Vienna Pack. Each style comes in the signature new navy blue with a custom Lexdray heather gray lining.
A huge congrats and thank you goes out to our friends over at UK based creative agency, Breaks. They've recently launched their first print publication, and even better, they included a small feature on our new FW16 Collection. Keep an eye out for Issue 1. Thanks fellas.
