Aren’t these Burton x Frye® boots just a beauty and breath of fresh air in the market? I don’t find snowboarding boots to be that unattractive compared to their ski counterparts, but it’s fair to say that the look and overall feel of the category can get a bit flat. Featuring USA-made leather and Burton’s signature BOA® lacing system, these harness boots are a definite stand-out and an extra special addition to any mountain day. Check out the soles, too! Now if only I had an excuse to snatch a pair…

I love when my favorite things come together in one neat package…like Ben & Jerry’s Core. When I spotted this trio of neoprene fabric, surfing, and laser cut, I instantly was head over heels. Amuse Society is quickly becoming one of my favorite labels, and it’s easy to see why.

slide1Sprinkling her soulful sliding skills and good life vibe at breaks around the world, Kassia Meador has been a longtime source of inspiration for the surf community, myself included. I loved her already for being a Los Angeles-area local, but her continued expression of grace and creativity is attention grabbing. She has a contagious attitude and style that’s difficult to ignore, which she translated into her own signature line of wetsuits for a number of seasons with her former sponsor, Roxy. Now behind the wheel of her brand, Kassia Surf, Meador continues to share her personal style with all her fellow “mermaids” and gives us the space treatment this Spring in her debut season. If the lookbook below is any indication, this is the start of something beautiful. Take a peep and pre-order your suit here.

Officially launching January 15, adidas and Stella McCartney are expanding their partnership and introducing StellaSport, a junior-focused fitness line with the sleek aesthetic you’ve come to know from Stella. Think the Selena Gomez-approved NEO line meets adidas by Stella McCartney, to be exact. The brand promises the usual intention of mixing gym-to-street styles for an effortless transition throughout your day and also lists “self-lacing” sneakers (!) in its mix. Peek the look book below.

“Wang has explained ad nauseam that his H&M collection is all about performance, and activewear in the form of seamless knitted leggings and tops, neoprene sweats, utilitarian, water-resistant coats and reflective mesh separates took center stage.” – Fashionista

Since it was announced this past Spring, I have been wildly awaiting the Alexander Wang + H&M collection to preview, and we finally got to see what it’s all about yesterday. While my initial reaction was that it’s not as wearable as I had anticipated (e.g. significant branding], I think it makes a strong statement for sport-influenced product and looks really wonderful from an editorial stand point. With neoprene being one of my favorite fabrics to use, I’m thrilled to see Wang continue to inject it into more product, even if it’s lost in novelty in high fashion. What are your favorites?
