New England born company Timberland, worldly renown for their flawless craftsmanship in outdoor apparel and footwear, teamed up with Publish Brand to introduce a limited collection of the Chelsea boot and the classic Oxford silhouette.
With the concept of merging West coast style with East coast functionality, these pieces feature the best of both worlds.
To celebrate the recent release of the “Reinventing California” collection, the two brands came together at the beautiful Timberland shop in the heart of bustling downtown San Francisco on Saturday, November 7th.
Here, any inquires of the brands or the collaboration were happily answered by Publish’s CEO, Timberland’s Senior Footwear Director, and other members of the team. They took the time to sign shoeboxes for any desiring fans who purchased a pair from the collection, while surrounding guests roamed the shop enjoying complimentary drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the warm ambiance.
Available in the traditional wheat and timeless black leather, the shoes were elegantly displayed front of shop for those who wanted to get a real feel of the West coast design aesthetic and the premium East coast weather-proof quality. It’s no surprise that the shop sold out of the black Chelsea boot by the end of the 3 hour event.
As the successful night came to an end, the teams connected over bringing this collaboration to life, their experiences in the industry and truly getting to know one another. Not only is it important to share a sense of camaraderie among the brands, especially executing a huge project as “Reinventing California,” but to meet the people who support the vision and getting to know theirs is essential in continuing on “Today for Tomorrow.” The exchange of ideas, gratitude, love and support filled the shop, exuding positive vibes throughout.

PHANTACi, a fashion label established by Jay Chou and his friend Ric Chiang, has teamed up with Publish Brand for a limited edition of “Shark Reflect” Jogger Pants in celebration of the label’s 8th anniversary.
The collaborative pants feature Publish Brand’s most popular product, “LEGACY Joggers”, in PHANTACi’s signature “Shark Camo” print. The pants are specially designed for Asian sizing and come in a black/dark grey color way with 3M reflective surface.
By incorporating its signature style and aesthetics, Publish Brand chooses a dark grey tone for the “Tiger Camo” in order to match Phantaci’s signature Shark Camo prints. With the use of 3M material, the shark prints appear in different forms under flash lighting, which gives the pants a one-of-a-kind design.
The pants also feature paneling at the knee along with co-branded woven labels and logos as well as Phantaci’s pink-flag label and tonal embroidery. All these design elements make the Shark Reflect Jogger Pants a new classic pair to keep in your closet.
We had the pleasure of bringing our release party with Vans out to Hawaii in late October.

Thank you to everyone that came and supported us! We couldn’t have done it without you!

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.
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
