Year in Review: Mass Appeal’s Fashion Round Up 2013

Brands to Watch in 2014

These clothing companies probably flew under your radar this year, but not for much longer. There’s always room for the new kids on the block, and in some cases, for some OGs to re-establish themselves on the scene. Keep an eye out for these brands in 2014.


Lemar & Dauley

Lemar & Dauley established itself as one of the premiere streetwear brands in the ’00s. Their collections included loud prints that were perfect for the time, but in retrospect seem trendy. After going on somewhat of a hiatus, L&D came back strong with their “Wave Tribe Collection,” which distinguishes itself from the “loud” prints of yester-year into the more grown-up world of street fashion. Look for timeless pieces and amicable quality threads, along with some very dope collabs coming from Lemar & Dauley in 2014.


Peas & Carrots International

The lifestyle brand has quietly set itself up for a big year come ’14. With the continuing rise of representative Casey Veggies, Peas & Carrots continues to extend its global reach. I can’t lie, the palette selection of green and orange really appeals to me. The heads of P&C are always keeping it fresh, and flag stores are looming coast to coast around the country, along with stockiest requesting more pieces. P&C will keep swag fiends eating their veggies!

Stay Dirty Co.

If you dig the new generation of rap music, then you unknowingly fuck with Stay Dirty. Based out of Los Angeles and headed by Shane Gonzales, Stay Dirty Co. has been exposed to the masses via the likes of rappers affiliated with A$AP Mob and Mac Miller rocking the garb. Print heavy pieces are guaranteed to please all with some original designs coming from the young mind. The line is carried in shops ranging from the US all the way to Tokyo, not bad for a brand that launched just three short years ago.

Furthermore, Gonzales has a lot of these young start-ups modeling their blueprint after Stay Dirty’s underground success, from lookbooks to design and everything in between. Imitation is the highest form of flattery they say. Gonzales hasn’t even hit his 20s yet, so be on the look out because the best is yet to come. The youth shall inherit the reins of this fashion shit gawd!
