Apolis x Kanvas by Katin

And just when I thought chambray couldn't find its way into the water, Apolis teams up with California-based Katin for a unique swim trunk that - unlike so many other overpriced and underconstructed predecessors - balances surf functionality with remarkably understated style and the some fifty years of locally handmade construction. And, as per usual, Apolis drops a video that gracefully shows the product in the purposed environment (and not a bad one at that), as well as highlighting the often forgot hands and faces behind the creation. June gloom may be in full effect around these parts, but Apolis has once again helped make design and process just a little brighter, creating a product that - both aesthetically and consciously - has personality and a truly unique style. Pre-orders available here.
