The Bowery has always been home to some of New York’s most colorful, transient, and creative characters, and now it welcomes a new, slightly more stable transplant all the way from Ventura, CA, Patagonia Bowery, Patagonia’s first Surf store on the East Coast.
*Editor’s note – We have been sitting on this post for a few weeks now, hoping to present it with the new layout of the site, buttttttt that isn’t happening as quickly as we thought, so we are just rolling with it. There are no rules. Here we go…
If you Google the phrase “chase your dreams” the first major post that comes up is one titled “Don’t Quit Your Job to Chase Your Dreams”. To that we say BLAH. Jordan Hufnagel and James Crowe of adventure outfitterWest America must have missed that memo as well because they are doing just that.
As we transition into fall, we wanted to say one last goodbye to summer with our first in a series of lookbooks called The Edit 1.0 – New York City. Shot on location by Bobby Too Young in the LES, we wanted to take outdoor basics from brands like Gramicci, Teva and Farm to Feet from the mountains to the streets.
Fall has officially arrived on the East Coast, and that means it is time to pull out the fleece and the chunky knits, and hunker down for a bone-chilling season. Since we are only here for a few more days, we thought it would be fitting to bring your attention to a few must-have pieces that evoke a sense of “warmth” by utilizing some unexpected textures in unique ways.
This week’s ON OUR RADAR features a New York icon, remixed with a West Coast twist. Long before Supreme was “inspired” by the contemporary artwork of Barbara Kruger, she got her start in design working at Condé Nast as an editor/graphic designer. Today, we see her work coming full circle back to it’s fashion roots, adorning the arms of a new collaboration with Freeway Eyewear.
This week’s ON OUR RADAR features some heavy hitters from the streetwear sector. Maison Martin Margiela x Converse sneakers are a reality, boasting signature Margiela accents like cracked leather uppers. Rihanna for River Island hits OC with a definite 90s undertone and Supreme teams up with New Era for GORE-TEX coated, waterproofed hats.
The goal here at Range is to connect the dots for those who are inspired by fashion, art and the active market. We thought it would be fun to kick off each week with a visual snapshot of all the newest collabs and releases that are catching our attention. Working on the weekends is for chumps, so Mondays, we will be hitting you with all the goods that are “On Our Radar”.
On October 20, 2013 I will be running my first-ever half marathon during the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. Half is not whole, but for me, it is enough. I am not a die-hard runner. In fact, I am not really that good at it. It is not easy for someone like me to admit that. I am pretty much better than average when it comes to sports. I enjoy being pushed, and pushing myself. I am motivated and committed. With running, however, I am still trying to find my stride.
