Last week I had the chance to join our women’s buyer, Brandi, at the 2012 Agenda Tradeshow in Long Beach. The show is home to some of the most inspired in the streetwear and action sports industry, with garage-run brands to well-established house hold names. Brandi and I checked out Summer/Fall 2012 lines, as well as Holiday 2012 lines from some of our favorite brands. The art and creativity was flowing throughout the show and it was great to see where all of the great products get their inspiration!
The first stop for Brandi and I was meeting up with the trend setters at the Insight booth. Fall and Holiday 2012 is sure to bring more dresses, lots of prints, and velvet!
Next on the schedule was Stussy. They were sure to deliver, like always! New fits for their perfect tees, creative graphics, and pops of color were what we saw for their Summer/Fall 2012 line.
The last stop of the day was with the ladies at Quicksilver . The bohemian and stylish feel of the brand was very apparent in the set up of their booth. Incorporating flower pots, linen curtains streamed around the walls, and vintage mirrors added decorative touches to their space. Summer and Fall 2012 at Quicksilver will have more long dresses, plus lots of deep purples and auburns in everything from pants to shorts.
The Summer, Fall, and Holiday seasons for 2012 will be filled with cute dresses with back cut outs and details, bell bottom denims and printed pants, and Purple, fig, and auburn oranges will be the colors to watch out for!
The day was a hit and you can be sure that Active Ride Shop has some great things coming this year!
