In June, the masterminds behind skate and streetwear culture converged on AGENDA Long Beach in sunny California with the goal of showcasing all of the fire we can expect to see on shelves later this year. The exhibition, which featured a ton of brands displaying everything from surfboards to a custom car, carried on AGENDA’s 13-year tradition of industry leadership. Exhibitors, buyers, and celebs like DJ Esco and Ben Baller were treated to good eats, a lounge, and bar to relax and even a half-pipe installed by local LA label Rokit.
With that in mind, HYPEBEAST visited AGENDA and hit up 12 of our favorite labels to highlight the best item they had to offer — cue drone footage. Narrowing down the selection over two days was a challenging task, but the mix of selected items represent 2016’s hottest apparel trends from natural colors like pale pink and tan, to hyped silhouettes like souvenir jackets and Olympic-themed gear. Along with the tops and bottoms, a mix of footwear and accessories including a skate deck series round out the grid. Check out the video above to hear about what makes each of the items a key, upcoming piece from the perspective of the brands themselves.
