From Phoenix Arizona All the Way to Chambana
Written by Lindsay Quick
I make a lot of Millennial-targeted references, so if you sang the heading of this blog post welcome to the party.
In cased you missed it on our Instagram page, Jenna and I traveled to Phoenix for the S&S Activewear Product Preview Show. Brands like Gildan and Bella + Canvas as well as newcomers like SoftShirts put on display their best new products. Apparel companies from across the U.S. gathered to see what they had to offer as we wrap up 2022 and look forward to 2023. We had a great time seeing new color palettes, feeling new fabrics and soaking up a little Arizona sun in the meantime. We brought back with us some exciting new pieces to share with you. Here are our favorites from the show:
Q-TEES – 11L TRI-COLOR TOTE
Why We Love It: Totes can be a little boring. The tri-color design of this bag adds a nice complexity and immediately elevates the look.
DRI DUCK – ACE WOVEN STRETCH SOFT SHELL JACKET
Why We Love It: We were immediately drawn to this piece in-person. It is a phenomenal jacket for the transitional seasons. It’s light but warm. Waterproof, yet flexible. It’s just a really solid jacket.
Why We Love It: The two-tone color variations on these items take them from boring to wow. With add your design and they’ll be pieces that people truly want to wear.
MV SPORT – WOMEN’S FRENCH TERRY HOODED PULLOVER WITH COLORBLOCKED SLEEVES
Why We Love It: Color blocking truly has been having a moment. We love this one for the off-white oatmeal base and soft-colors that it is available in.
ADIDAS – LIGHTWEIGHT QUARTER-ZIP PULLOVER
Why We Love It: Yes, color blocking again. But we’re telling you we can’t keep these types of pieces on the shelves. This is a great, high quality pullover from trusted brand Adidas. The color variations give it a sporty feel without being over the top.
BAYSIDE – USA-MADE RINGER TEE
Why We Love It: Ringer tees immediately give a vintage feel. They just give off fun vibes. Instead of just a plain old t-shirt, we highly recommend switching it up to this unique piece.
LAT – FINE JERSEY TEE
Why We Love It: This jersey tee from LAT is not only incredibly soft, but it comes in some really unique patterns. We’re talking leopard, reptile and camo prints. Paired with simple, clean artwork this can be a really cool piece to add to your wardrobe.
