We recently moved our brand headquarters to the picturesque Bay Area, so we decided to handle the Winter 2015 lifestyle shoot on our new home turf. For this two part photo series, we tapped the skills of four talented photographers with Bay Area roots—Isreal Balderas, Evan Thompson, Enrique Espinoza and Taylor Scalise—who each offer their own perspective on the new collection from some of San Francisco’s most well known locales.
Part one of the W15 shoot travels from Twin Peaks to Fisherman's Wharf and on to downtown to showcase the versatile new Symmetry Collection and its innovative custom fabric—a rip-stop nylon fused with a durable mesh. The all-black collection with a subtle diamond shape pattern includes two new silhouettes, the Toronto Pack and Whistler Pack, and a few favorites, the Tokyo Pack, Boulder Pack and Dubai Travel Case.
Our City Series Patches were designed to complement our technical apparel, by easily attaching to any of our Apres outerwear pieces and allowing you to personalize your gear. This second collection of City Series Patches was designed by the winning participant in a competition we ran with Blank You Very Much. Participants were given templates and guidelines to follow. We received over one hundred submissions, but ultimately ended up choosing this winning collection from designer, Ariel Galán, which seamlessly represents our brand.
Take a look through the lens of talented Bay Area photographer, Enrique Espinoza (@ozenrique) as he shows off our Apres Apparel Collection. This trio of versatile technical sweatshirts was designed to be everyone’s favorite travel staples. Just like our bags, each piece of outerwear merges utility and style and features lots of thoughtful details and hidden elements, as well as military grade hardware and durable fabric with a water-repellent finish.
We've happily arrived at City Series Mix - Volume 50. It's been 2+ years since Red Bull asked us to design a DJ Pack for their Red Bull Thre3style Competition finalists, and 2+ years since we sat down with DJ Clark Kent to design the ultimate DJ backpack. Shortly after the competition, we launched the City Series. We've released fifty incredible mixes from world renowned DJ's and we look forward to Volume 100 and beyond. Special thanks to all of our DJ's.

A match made in heaven, this limited-edition combo will upgrade any commute—whether to the office or a gig. We designed a custom SOL REPUBLIC over-ear Master Tracks headphone to complement our Fall 2014 Ibiza Pack, which we updated in olive with a custom Lexdray heather grey lining. This virtually indestructible headphone, known for its clean design, rugged durability, comfortable fit, and powerful sound, comes with all-black Sound Engines, an interchangeable headband, and cable with mic and control. Just like its DJ-designed predecessor, our Fall ‘14 Ibiza Pack has a modern, utilitarian design and storage for all the daily essentials—plus handy features like a fleece-lined laptop compartment and tote-style handle.
Available November 14th, the Lexdray x SOL REPUBLIC Master Tracks X3 headphone retails for $250 and Lexdray’s Fall ‘14 Ibiza Pack is priced at $425. The duo can be purchased together for $575 (for a $100 savings). Get the Combo Package HERE!
To celebrate our recent collaboration with SOL REPUBLIC, we brought back talented DJ, LA Riots, to star in another video. One of SOL REPUBLIC’s Saviors of Sound, LA Riots also worked closely with us on the release of our original Ibiza Pack, so he was a natural fit. We checked out his apartment while he packed his bags and followed him around Los Angeles on his pre-show rituals before he caught a train at Union Station. Watch below.
Audiophiles take note. Our latest collaboration is for you. We partnered with SOL REPUBLIC to design a limited edition over-ear Master Tracks headphone—known for its clean design, rugged durability, comfortable fit, and powerful sound. We took color and design inspiration from our newly launched Fall 2014 Ibiza DJ Pack in olive and created a textured logo print to simulate the fabrics in our signature bags. To add to the exclusivity, the headphone has all-black Sound Engines only offered with SOL REPUBLIC custom sets. With only 65 numbered pairs available, the virtually indestructible Master Tracks also feature an interchangeable headband and cable with mic and control to create additional looks. Check it out!
Housing the electronic music world's it-crowd during the annual Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach means going above and beyond. For this year's invite-only Red Bull Guest House, we designed a unique RBGH version of our Tahoe Duffel which once again was given in the deluxe gift package each guest receives when they arrive in their room (2013 guests received a special Red Bull version of our Lexdray Ibiza Pack).
March 27-30, the same weekend as Ultra Music Festival, the Red Bull Guest House (Gale Hotel) has been the most sought after party invite during WMC. It's no wonder considering the incredible line-up they piece together over the 3-day period. Eight legendary dance labels provided this year's line-up which included the likes of Skrillex, Richie Hawtin, Julio Bashmore, RiFF RAFF, Cashmere Cat, Elliphant, a surprise set from Diplo, and more.
Check out images of the duffel, in-room gift set and 4-day event below.

Lexdray brand ambassadors and dubstep gurus, Truth, who gave us City Series Mix Volume 22 recently passed some amazing images along to us. These images were taken in their hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand where a massive earthquake leveled the city in February 2011. Post earthquake recovery is still taking place.
