DISCOVER AUGUST 2017’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
Just before we start bombarding you with AW17 drops, here bring you this final high summer cool list edit which features colourful sunglasses, bright soft cotton shirts and a portable speaker with long battery life perfect for any outdoors adventure. So, following on from our July round-up, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite products and releases for the month of August 2017.
Chimi is a unisex eyewear brand based in Stockholm, Sweden. The brand started to create colourful sunglasses in classic shapes. Eyewear that would fit and look good on anyone, without compromising with the quality. Since we don’t wear the same colour every day, Chimi wanted to make their products affordable so that everyone can buy multiple colours. Their sunglasses are handcrafted in a premium cellulose acetate and lenses are impact resistant including a 100% UV (400) protection. All of their eyewear is finished with a coating that makes them polarized and super hydrophobic, and they are also treated with an anti-scratch layer.
Tobias Clothing SS17
The recent Tobias Clothing launch of light linen and super soft cotton shirts will make sure you are summer ready and dressed to impress this season. The latest collection incorporates their signature Indian block print designs, with a unique twist. Expect to see hints of the tropics with flamingos and pineapples, to the ever popular and topical bees or more traditional geometric patterns. By adding these fun and playful colours and prints to the shirts, Tobias Clothing offers a summer staple with a difference. They're an ethical fashion brand who donate 10% of the profit from each shirt to the Akanksha Foundation. So, no matter where you are this summer, whether in the city, by the pool or on the beach, ensure you are dressing to make a difference with this new SS17 range.

The Dalston is the brand’s newest men’s fashion umbrella, and the first to be unveiled in three years.

The adizero Prime Parley
At the start of this month's IAAF World Championships, adidas launched adizero Prime Parley, a fast-focused, elite running shoe with the same engine and construction as adidas’ marathon world-record setting models. The latest creation in the adizero collection fuses high performance, innovation and style with purpose, thanks to the integration of Parley Ocean Plastic which is made from upcycled waste, intercepted before it reaches the ocean from beaches and coastal communities. The adizero silhouette combines an energy-returning BOOST midsole with a Primeknit upper, alongside other features crafted to inspire runners to be faster and more confident with each step.
Oliver Sweeney Dip-Dying
Obsessed with design and detailing, dip-dying was an exciting technique to add to the collection this season for Oliver Sweeney. Dip-Dying is an art rarely used for shoes these days as its a time consuming and tricky task but the results certainly speak for themselves. Shoes are constructed from undyed natural leather, then dip-dyed to give their stunning finish. The process adds a luxurious depth of colour and a polished, distressed look. As a result every pair of dip-dyed shoes is unique.
Dock & Bay Towels
Dock & Bay began as many great ideas do, a desire for something new, a passion for travel and adventure and most likely, a few too many drinks. Andy from the UK and Benno from Australia are work mates and global travellers who decided to completely reinvent the bulky, soggy beach towel and brighten up the dull, outdated travel towel. Dock & Bay towels are lightweight, fast drying, compact and sand free. They come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes, packaged in a custom designed soft cotton pouch - making them perfect for anything you’re doing outdoors.
