Founded in 2009, Publish Brand was built on the idea of having a pressing dream, taking the necessary steps toward it, and sharing it with the world. Every person has aspiring dreams, yet every person also needs to make a living. It’s not whether or not someone has the time, it’s whether or not someone has the heart.
We all need to survive this dog-eat-dog world, but the ones that remain standing through the rubble of hardships, are the ones that persevere through daily life and have the heart to continue after hours toward the dream.
Publish is extending their cause and this idea by partnering up with like-minded creatives to get a closer look into how other dream chasers have published their goals, hence the launch of the Publish.ed Program.
The first featured Publishers of this program are the founders of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. Established in San Francisco, the company has expanded to two locations in Los Angeles and now in Seoul, Korea.
Like Publish, design and quality are what drives Mr. Holmes to do what they do, serving their dream to the masses. On Saturday, April 7th – 5 PM PST, Publish will be hosting the launch of the Publish.ed Program at the Mr. Holmes location in Highland Park, CA to understand their stories, real struggles, true successes, and the parallels between both brand ideals.
The event will feature giveaways, free drinks, mouth-watering pastries, exclusive, collaboration merchandise and a live panel with both brands’ founders, followed by an open Q&A.

We’ve come together with CLAE once again to proudly present the Bradley Mid sneaker, a brand new silhouette that embodies the street-meets-luxury space of the sneaker market. Last year we teamed up together for the camel-colored Gregory SP collaborative. This time however, this latest project brings an understated all-black approach to a timeless mid-cut model. Sporting a monochrome “Night Moves” colorway, the Bradley Mid is fashioned from luxurious oiled suede with leather linings — the uppers sit atop a durable cupsole platform, while the white ankle collar is built from neoprene for a slight contrast.
Limited to only 500 pairs worldwide.
Join us as we celebrate a special collaboration between two California brands; Publish Brand and CLAE.
We cordially invite you to the official release event for “The Natural State Project” in Los Angeles in celebration of our special footwear collaboration. Enjoy a night of tacos, beer, drinks (by @Jarritos and @ElJimadorTequila), and vibes by Jah Cousteau.

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!

The Jogger Pant is now a staple in most men’s closets across North America. Five years ago, this was not the case. The pants started as a mere concept that didn’t really catch on until about a year ago. The men’s pants category has been pretty stale with only a few options. The Jogger Pant gave men an exciting new option to look cool and feel good. The overall key to the pant is the cinched cuff. This allows for free movement and being able to show your footwear in a clean way. With the resurgence of running shoes worldwide, the Jogger Pant quickly caught on. Everyone was buying Roshes, Air maxs, Gel Lytes, and Discs to wear with their Joggers.
So what is the future of the Jogger Pant? Where is the evolution? Above is a sneak preview into the next creation called the Legacy Jogger. These pants are built for your everyday life. They includes an extended ribbed cuff, DWR stain proof and water resistance, and 2% stretch for extra comfort and mobility. The Legacy Joggers are set to release at accounts worldwide on May 1st.

Daniel Arsham is a fresh american conceptual artist who is current showing his latest installation entitled ” Kick the Tires and Light the Fires” at OH-WOW in Los Angeles. Arsham is quickly becoming known for his unique sculptures and two-dimensional work.
Arsham takes nostalgic everyday items and appiles a very specific process of rock and minerals including quartz, volcanic ask, obsidian, and glacial dust ash. This process gives off a questionable end result. Are these pieces from the future or past? Have they been calcified by the world’s end or are they antiques being restored? All these questions leave the viewer in awe and excitement. Take a look below from the opening night of the show…
Benny Gold is widely known for his authentic and well-crafted graphic design. He has created an in house brand with a cult following like no other. Naturally, with a love for California, we have teamed up with Benny Gold to create a very unique and extensive capsule collection.
The concept behind the collaboration is to create pieces that would translate in both climates of Los Angeles and San Francisco; birthplace of both brands respectively. Benny Gold’s custom Fog Camo pattern was created to reflect the nature of San Francisco’s foggy climate. We have taken Benny Gold’s custom Fog Camo pattern and creatively placed it throughout the entire collection.

It was a beautiful day in sunny California and I got a chance to hangout with the storeowners of BNIB Alex and Jamie as well as their dogs Obey and Sis. I sat them down for a little Q&A. Alex and Jamie recently purchased an old truck and turned it into the first mobile shoe slangin machine. This crafty concept allows them to sell their products anywhere they go. You may have spotted them at the Well-Connected sale in DTLA this past March. The truck definitely stirred up a lot of conversation!

This past Saturday, we had some very special guests drop by the Publish offices to pay us a visit. The homies Ryan and Asad (masterminds behind LA’s Soul Slam and Wonderfull events) stopped by with none other than the man of the hour himself, superproducer and world-renowned party igniter, DJ Spinna. Fresh off a flight from LAX (and a gig the night before at SoHo’s Submercer), Spinna was most definitely on his “no-sleep-swag” as he dug through the crates. Only this time, he was digging for fits rather than wax…and the crates were just cardboard boxes, but work with us here.
After getting laced with some pieces that he picked out, he had to swing over to the hotel for a few brief hours of R&R before taking the stage at The Echoplex for Soul Slam 8. The night was a massive success (as it always tends to be), with over a thousand people packed inside, dancing and sweating to the better part of Prince & MJ’s discographies, blended and presented as only Spinna can do it.
Keep up with DJ Spinna on www.djspinna.com and make sure to follow Footlong Development on Twitter at @FootlongEvents.

Three nights with two of the most influential entertainers of our time.
Kanye West and Jay-Z just wrapped up their long awaited Watch the Throne tour this past week with three shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The concert received all positive reviews from the elevating stages, to fire erupting through the floors, and the amazing display of lasers. Mr. West wore a black leather kilt and white war paint, while Hov kept it pretty simple with his classic Yankee cap and American flag bandana. The two opened the show with H.A.M and ended the night with 10 encores of Night In Paris, breaking the record they held in Chicago of 9.
“We’re living our dream in front of you, Los Angeles. Know this shit is possible.” -Jay-Z
