Puma @ Bright XVIII

Teaming up again with illustrator Sophia Chang Puma presents another sweet release of the Puma Basket silhouette - soft rose for the girls and a smooth blue for the boys. Say "HI!" at Puma's booth #134.

Last call for BRIGHT DIARIES

Make sure to get your copy of BRIGHT DIARIES, dudes! Failing this would mean you'll miss interviews with Ashley Smith, Dirty Beaches and Harmony Korine plus art works by Todd Jordan, Ted Pushinsky, Magaret Durow, Will Sweeney, Minh Tran, Team Macho and more. Go, grab on or do it like our beloved BRIGHT office mistresses Lissi and Laure: ripp it into pieces and tape it on the wall. Whatever.

Addict @ BRIGHT

Addict brought some friends: their sublabel Bloc 28 introduces the upcoming Disney collab which involves several artists reinterpreting the master mouse.  Booth #105a (nada)

Makia @ BRIGHT

At their booth (#105a) Makia designer Jesse serves smoked fish, potatoes and schnaps. And they brought the perfect fitting outfit! (nada)

DVS @ BRIGHT

Another collaboration between Cinelli and DVS is to come in Spring 14 in two new coloways and an improved, harder sole to make it easier tocyle with. Booth #250. (nada)

Element @ BRIGHT

Rumble in the Jungle! With this jumper Element Eden designer Gaelle created a never-seen before style compared to their former (mainly romantic) collections. Go wild, girls! Booth #106a (nada)

Crooks & Castles @ BRIGHT

Well, that's something for stylish couch potatoes, I guess. Find more about the Zip-Off Bandana Sweat Pants at Crooks & Castles, booth #101c. (nada)

REELL @ BRIGHT

Fo' real, I mean, for REELL next season it's all about denim: 80ies finishes, light denim finishes, remember-your-first-501-finishes - everything the denim heart could wish for. Booth #101a. (nada)

KR3W @ Bright

Not sure if Jello would like this one, but still great: Winston Smith for KR3W! Back in the days Smith was the one creating the Dead Kennedys logo, definitely not hard to miss when you check the details of the colorful all-over print. Boardshorts, bag pack, shirt and tee available in spring 14. Booth 235.

Powell-Peralta @ BRIGHT

Don't miss to check out the very pinkish and original retro deck from 1985 by Lance Mountain that Powell-Peralta just released after their legendary Bones Brigade vid. Go back in time or  straight to their booth 244. (nada)

RVCA @ BRIGHT

RVCA is clearly focussed on details, like constantly working with their advocates and taking fair productions seriously. With Australian advocate and artist Trent Whitehead they  designed this super-smooth fabric tee "Buff Hello" with a feel like soft skin, fairly produced in Portugal. Seen at RVCA, booth 106b. (nada)
