Black and Classic Greys:
Black is a standard color for all accessories, while grey returns as the essential neutral. Stony grey is the bedrock of the season, while sleet tones and steel blue bring beautiful depth to concrete neutrals.
Shades Of Browns And Golden Sun:
Browns of all shades from chestnut tones that have hints of auburn and harvest gold. While golden-tinted tones warm up the palette. Ranging from amber to buckthorn.
Dark blues move ever closer to black. Stepping away from the very classic French navy, color drifts down into a deeper, darker world of black iris and indigo ink.
Red becomes more mature with rich tones of beet red and cranberry. We are also seeing an emergence of orange-reds with subtle coral tones.

THE BILLED CAP
FITTED, SNAPBACK & CAMP Thereâ€™s no doubt that the billed cap is the standard headwear and completer piece of all skate and street brands. The traditional sport silhouette(Snapback & Fitted) as well as five-panel hat(Camp) are the favorite. This season we are embracing dye effects as decoration. Color blocking are ever present while mixing it with prints and varied materials adds newness. Some key fabrications include suiting fabrics, leather, corduroy, lightweight wool and standard twills; mostly for textural purpose .
Bucket hats look fresh and renewed as a casual alternative to the ever-popular billed cap. This laid back style appeals to the skate, surf and lifestyle markets. While the traditional bucket is in denim and khaki solid options. There are other bright colored and blocked versions. However emerging steadily are the allover print and bleached dyes which add style and interest.
STRIPES, APPLIQUES AND EDGE BINDING
While texture prints are still prominent retailers are starting to showcase stripes as a choice update for web belts. Twill and leather bindings and appliques refresh the classic web and grosgrain belt styles. Reversibility is key for a perceived extra value.
TEXTURE, APPLIQUES AND EDGE BINDING
The Textured Belt is a dynamic spring must-have. Color options include traditional black and brown, with flashes of bold teal and white. Pebbled and stamped surfaces add interest, while clean finished hardware allows textures to become the centerpieces of this updated classic. Textured appliques and binding details will give more dimension and interest than its basic leather counterparts.
PERFORMANCE & FASHION
The standard boxer brief is evolving into more of a performance piece. Taking design cues from activewear by combining itâ€™s durable function with the everyday comfort of cotton basics. A network of ergonomic seams creates dimensional fit around the legs and pouch. Contrast flatlock stitching reduces bulk and provides a subtle accent. While solids are the big seller, novelty patterns follow the trends of our prints and pattern report.
PERFORMANCE & FASHION
Fashion Follows Function! High performance socks are hitting retail floors quickly. Technical fabrications help keep you cool and comfortable, while body-mapping provides extra support, compressions and cushioning, which allows for maximum protection and functionality. For esthetics, most performance socks lend to a more sporty or high tech look, but some take on a more novelty approach. Simple dots, checks and stripes are being combined to yield maximum graphic appeal. For the more bold sock enthusiast, there are tie dyes, dizzying pop motifs and conversational tossed icons.
