  • Pow Wow 2016 Takes Over Long Beach

    As you know, we love art (and artists) at HEX. The Pow Wow movement is something that we both enjoy and support as it works to beautify cities around the world. Raising art awareness, while promoting civic pride from Hawaii to Japan to Massachusetts, Jasper Wong and the Pow Wow crew pulled into Long Beach, CA recently and we were so there!

    I was blessed to be a mentor for the Orange County rendition of Pow Wow School Of Music, and I got to do that again in Long Beach. I also got to meet some great artists, spread the HEX message and catch up with industry friends along the way. The event included numerous artists painting murals at locations all around the city as well creating installations for the Vitality And Verve In The Third Dimension show at the Long Beach Museum Of Art. It was a great week or art, music and creativity! Check out our recap video and a few snaps to experience Pow Wow Long Beach vicariously through your friends at HEX.

  • Field Report: HEXploring Iceland

    _DSC6297

    Iceland is my favorite place on earth. One of my buddies and I decided we wanted to go somewhere obscure that could get us out of our comfort zone and into the unknown. Iceland has been atop my top places to travel ever since I started seeing Chris Burkard’s images and video of Iceland. I was mesmerized by the landscapes and had to see it for myself. In Iceland we had decided we would rent a car and see where our trip took us. With no plan in mind we started driving the ring road and staying in hostels wherever we were. We stopped whenever we thought we saw something worthwhile, and ended up seeing some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. We would wake up around 10am and book our next hostel for the night. We would then drive to 2 or 3 spots that we wanted to see that day and spend the day there. After we would go back and make dinner and go back out for sunset around 11pm. The waterfalls were beyond incredible and were like nothing we had ever seen (my personal favorites were Skogafoss and Seljalandafoss). I’ve seen endless pictures of the waterfall in Skogafoss, but none of them compare to actually seeing it in person. It is giant and powerful and the hike above the waterfall is also beautiful. I won’t forget that place anytime soon. We also went for hikes each day and tried to meet as many people as possible. Icelandic people are very hospitable and friendly which makes traveling there that much more enjoyable. On these hikes, I was lugging around a lot of camera gear, clothes and food, and my HEX bags allowed me to carry all these things safely and securely, and stylishly. We drove the entire ring road (2,800km) and got to experience about 10 different hot springs, which we are not accustomed to, being from CA. The hot springs were all very different, but it was incredible getting to experience these unique and natural places in such remote spots. Another highlight of the trip was staying in a town called Hofn. In Hofn we got to experience black sand beaches with Icelandic horses, glacier lagoons, and icebergs washing up the coast of Jokusarlon. I took a polar plunge in the Atlantic Ocean and also witnessed some of the most breathtaking sunsets I have ever seen. Iceland is a photographers dream. It has insane landscapes and breathtaking waterfalls, and weather permitting it has some beautiful light. We were lucky enough to see the sun about everyday which made the experience that much better. I recommend Iceland to anyone who wants to be fully submersed in nature without the crazy crowds of most other countries in the world. Almost anyone can handle Iceland (during the summer months), but only a select few can handle it in the winter. I’m hoping to go back in the winter in the near future to see what it’s all about.

    We headed to the Blue Lagoon on the first day and although it is a very touristy spot, it was one of my favorite places of the whole trip. Getting to be in the natural hot spring and electric blue water is an insane experience.

    Standing in front of Seljalandafoss was an incredible experience. Getting to go behind the waterfall and getting drenched by the freezing glacier water is something I will never forget.

    Looking down the Fjarmanagular Ravine was a very humbling experience. It is so huge that you realize how incredibly big this world is and how much there is to explore. We decided to take some time here just to sit on the edge of the cliff and enjoy the breathtaking view in front of us.

    Hiking to the abandoned hot springs. Had to carry a ton of stuff in our backpack in order to have all our gear and change of clothes.

    We had to take a break from driving every once and a while and one of us would trail the other in the car while the other skated to our next destination. Nothing better than fresh air in your face while skating into the unknown.

    HEX-Radar-Collection-12

    The Radar Collection:
    “Navy is a great go-to color,” says Dan Maravilla, Co-Founder. “We liked the concept of doing it in coated rip-stop so that it was rugged, classic, and modern all at the same time.”

    HEX-Radar-Collection-02

    The collection features a water-resistant, coated rip-stop shell in navy. Contrasting black coated canvas trim mixes with genuine sienna leather zipper pulls for a unique palette. Black surplus-grade web straps and matte black hardware complete the look. All the bags are fully “Device Ready” and incorporate many faux fur lined gadget pockets. The Radar Collection is priced from $29.95 to $129.95.

    HEX-Radar-Collection-08

    The Video:
    The lookbook video is titled “Brave New World” and draws on the brand’s modernist personality while playing with dramatic futuristic scenes. Stark lines, lighting and shadow are used effectively in this film by Edgar Obrand and an original music score by KYWO is also a highlight that sets the mood. Here is the full concept behind the video:

    BRAVE NEW WORLD

    Creativity is at its best when it is raw.
    The demolition men and women of the past are just that – in the past.
    We need new rule-breakers to grab hold of all the promise and energy that exist in the struggle itself.
    Inspiration is everywhere.
    Shadows cast angled light across the canvas of our minds.
    So look around, build your own Utopia.
    Remember that industry, invention, and technology are important not only to keep us alive, but to truly let us live.
