This last weekend Cream&Coal headed down to Vancouver to check out KNOW?SHOW, Canada’s Premier Lifestyle Tradeshow. With many great companies at the show, these are just a few of our favourite things we saw coming out this fall and winter, we may have spotted a theme and discovered our love for floral.
A few favourites were the snowboard designs by Endeavor Snowboards, based out of Vancouver, Canada. Founded in 2002 by pro rider Max Jenke and Transworld Magazine staff photographer Scott Serfas, 10 years later they have been bringing snowboarders the best riding experience while also working with the most innovative artists in the world to bring art to snowboard design. Featured here in the middle is the women’s Endeavor Diamond, meant for girls who like to seek and destroy on the mountain, yet still look classy with its floral print design. Below is the women’s Endeavor Boyfriend, playful when you want it to be, but aggressive when you need it to be.
This here is a new to the scene, a prototype built in the Endeavor Archetype Snowboard Lab right out of Vancouver. Lets just say that ‘not all those who wander are lost’. The Airhole face mask is not just a face mask. Coming at you with design, comfort, and your ability to breath is quite genius if you ask me. New for the 2013/2014 season, they are introducing a softer velcro that won’t catch and tangle your hair when you wrap it around your face. Lioness? I think so.
Spy Goggles are my go to goggle when on the mountain battling snow in my eyes. They nailed the new design of the SPY Marshall in floral, while also adding in more colourful, female friendly designs. They also fit very well, with 3 layers of cushiony foam.
2002 was a great year, emerging onto the clothing scene was Lifetime Collective, another Vancouver based company. And we Canadians love supporting our local designers. Lifetime is collaborative group of artists, musicians, snowboarders, skateboarders, and friends. Inspired by the world we live in and the adventures we go on, this brand has established itself as a premier lifestyle and clothing brand. With unique cuts and designs, these are clothes we want to live in. New in the upcoming line is the floral pattern, are you seeing a pattern here? Don’t be mistaken, it’s not a mistake.
Until the fall, we hope this wasn’t too much of a tease.
