What is your collection theme and which stories are you telling to get customers stoked on streetwear with a boardsports flavor?
Our range consists of multiple key stories:
Cult of Freedom
A punchy collection referencing our series of relatively short films about surfing and everything that goes along with it…CULT OF FREEDOM.
Dead Kooks means nothin’ really. Eden Saul founder/shaper Eden is one of Australia’s most iconic shapers, making surfboards for past, current and future world champions with eye catching resin tints and paint. Dead Kooks x Globe is a tight collection designed to highlight the art of Eden Saul and the highly covetable surfboards he creates.
The +/+ Collection is a capsule range of unique pieces designed with professional surfer Dion Agius. Heavily influenced by vintage items collected in remote corners of the world with imagery inspired by his travels and friends. Featuring unique cuts and fabrics that have been refined to become staple trans-seasonal wardrobe pieces. The artwork in this season’s collection is derived from photos taken by Dion in his home town of Tasmania.
The Mark Appleyard collection merges classic design with function and durability. Featuring his hand done sketches combined with functional fabrications dedicated to enhance performance and mobility.
Rounding out the key stories is The Goodstock Collection which is a complete stock service program. Minimalist styles with maximum comfort, these wardrobe essentials are available in seasonal and staple colours. A stock service selection makes life easy with round the clock availability of key pieces.
