Sprayground is an AGENDA Show staple and their “Invasion Collection” presents a whimsical world where the backpack and accessories brand builds on its favorite motifs to debut fresh designs for a new season.
The “Glow” family builds on the galactic theme of previous seasons, while the “Tools Of The Rich” series sees “King Midas” sit beside a “New Money” design featuring the revised $100 bill plus “Big Ben,” a tribute to rapper Rick Ross and his luxe lifestyle. There’s also “Baby J” (an artistic interpretation of legendary ball players Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen as baby angels), “Leopard Bears” (a twist on the Polo bears as famous hip-hop artists), “Fck Yo Number” for the sports enthusiasts and “Spongebob Sharkpants,” a classic reinvented with Sprayground’s famous shark mouth. Last but not least, a three-style capsule of camouflage “Wing Bags” created by Sprayground founder David Ben David and international superstar Chris Brown in the brand’s first major celebrity partnership.
The Fall / Holiday 2014 range from Quintin Co has went through a complete overhaul as the crew of Quintin worked together on making sure the themes of the Seasons are in tune with each other. Fall 14 represents the Seasons of Change which not only resembles the normal changes from Summer to Fall but a new approach towards the brands validity. Holiday 14 The Time of Tech was inspired by the everlasting technology of Japan with great nostalgia of the 80’s and 90’s. Quintin Co will also be unveiling their Holiday 14 Capsule collection with Japan’s W-Base.

Greg “GT” Tomlinson, one of the industry’s most well-known personalities, got on the mic at Agenda Long Beach to give some perspective to the impetus behind VonZipper and the quirky, off-beat inspiration used to create the product and the image for the brand. Tomlinson, who helped found the company back in 1999-2000, continues to lead the company’s creative efforts and help tell the unique stories that he says set the brand apart from the rest in the market.

Vans President Kevin Bailey gives his take on how the company got its start based on creative expression, and how that culture has grown and evolved over the years, from the days of Dogtown in 1966, to the present. The brand is working to rejuvenate its apparel business for Spring 14, and is working closely with its artist and athlete team to create products based on what they are seeing and experiencing in their everyday lives. It has been Vans openness and inclusiveness within the action sports, music, and streetwear culture that has allowed them to grow such a mass following, according to Bailey.
“We really embrace you no matter what you do or where you came from, so it’s really about that lifestyle and family connection,” says Bailey. Watch the entire interview right here.
