With Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, public beaches and oceanic surroundings, it makes it a popular destination for many visitors. With that we decided to bring the party to the Paradise State. We got to enjoy what Hawaii had to offer and took full advantage of all the great views. Thank you Hawaii – you were beautiful to us.
Check out some amazing photos below shot by our own photographer, Gian Torres.
We had the pleasure of bringing our release party with Vans out to Hawaii in late October. Being two California brands, we could have easily thrown a party out here in Los Angeles but why not try something new? We decided to bring it to big island of Oahu and we brought some friends with us to throw the party down! Check out some photos below from the event night. Thank you to everyone that came and supported us! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Dj Delve – Our friend Chris, known all over Hawaii, is known for taking all types of music and giving it a groovy funky feel you can dance to.
Salva - DJ, Producer, Engineer, Songwriter, SALVA is blurring lines between all types of musical boundaries. Pitchfork has described his work as “music that sounds like it comes from a place of genuine adventurousness.”
Dam Funk - Taking elements of modern soul, electric funk, hip hop, and dance ; Dam-Funk is here to move to feet and stimulate your mind. His rare blend of music has landed Dam hardcore fans worldwide

Finally all the buzz and excitement manifested into reality last weekend when the Publish Brand crew took flight to visit our account Kicks Hawaii for the official in-store release of the Publish x Vans OTW Breton Boot. The event kicked off at 1pm on the 26th of October in Honolulu with talented DJ Delve and Dam-Funk on the turn tables. With the entire store grooving to funky jams, the event ended on a great note with our team, the Vans team, Kicks HI, friends, family, Publishers and shoe lovers connecting about the highly anticipated release of this premium boot.
The intricate details of this Breton definitely need a second look. Don’t be fooled by the boot’s simple colorway. The excellent quality and execution of this boot is the reason why Kicks On Fire named the Publish x Vans collaboration “Boot of the Year.” The clean colors selected for the design compliments any outfit, making it a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. The black nylon upper is water-resistant for every day wear, while the white leather mid-sole contrasts the rest of the boot for aesthetic style. The back panel is reflective constructed of 3M materials to make you pop, when necessary. The perforated neoprene tongue and collar paired with an UltraCrush HD and Vibram sole adds great comfort to this exclusive fall boot.
While the team is out in Hong Kong checking out the KAWS “CLEAN SLATE” Exhibition at Harbour City, we got to check out the KAWS “Man’s Best Friend” Exhibit in Los Angeles at the Honor Fraser.
Back for the third time (through October 31, 2014), this recent work takes the familiar silhouette of famous cartoon characters. The exhibition features paintings, drawings and sculptures rendered in bright colors on canvas stretched over wood panels.
If you are from the Los Angeles area, you should definitely swing by this FREE exhibit!

For Fall 2014, we wanted to exceed the boundaries of concept, design and styling while maintaining the classic feel that makes us Publish Brand. The knits in this recent collection provide as everyday essentials to stand out in the saturated world. Below is an array our knitted tops. You will notice the different types of material, design and detailing that are put into each piece. Be a part of the global movement: “To Coexist.”
Publish Brand is here to share with you Fall 2014 Delivery 1, our most extensive collection to date entitled “To Coexist.” The first chapter of this intricate collection shows a wide range of concepts and styling while keeping the design aesthetic that Publish Brand is now known for. The idea of the collection was to create individual garments that are strong enough to stand on their own but also live and breathe in harmony as one. The final outcome is something truly remarkable.
One of the items from that collection that standouts include the Magna pants. This moto inspired pants has ridge quilting on the thigh area along with a stretch twill material for movement and comfort. The Millo is a two-way zip satin bomber jacket with a very unique military mesh net overlay.
The Ash is a forward short sleeve hoodie with an elongated body that is offered in five amazing colors. This hoodie is a great piece for layering or to be worn by itself. To top off the collection, the Nolan cap is a 6-panel hybrid camper on a herringbone wool body. Look for the first chapter of “To Coexist” to release on Tuesday, August 12th at official Publish Brand retailers worldwide and at www.publishbrand.com
