Brand Spotlight: SeaVees for Spring 2015


Vintage SeaVees Advertisement

The SeaVees brand is the self-proclaimed “continued discovery of the California dream.” Founded in 1964, the brand was created by B.F. Goodrich and later purchased by Converse, until it was shelved away in the limelight of Jack Purcell, a successful Converse brand. Nearly 40 years later, the brand was relaunched in Santa Barbara by two guys in an attempt to bring back casual California cool. Check out our latest brand, SeaVees for Spring 2015, in store today…“unless you’re not the casual type.”

lucy – Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1999.

lucy was founded in 1999 in Portland, Oregon, during a time when workout gear was less ‘gear’ and more sloppy. Baggy, unflattering clothing had taken the reins, and women looked worn-down before even stepping foot in the gym. lucy set out to change that under the belief that a stylish woman should look as chic for the gym as she does in the boardroom, out to dinner and everywhere in-between.

lucy found a void, filled it with their attractive athletic apparel and created a unique boutique-style environment. lucy puts women first by crafting pieces that stand up to the high demands of women’s active and everyday lives. They believe women shouldn’t have to tug, pull or fiddle with their activewear. lucy makes clothing that fits like a glove for women of all sizes—without compromising style or performance. By looking beyond current trends and fads, lucy continues to create quality activewear made to make women feel strong and beautiful.
