awake : the new sustainable watch brand




This is the challenge of the completely new watch brand that has been created by Fred and Lilian, two French entrepreneurs.
AWAKE perfectly illustrates the brand’s mentality, and hopes to make everyone aware of the impact of their consumption. Pollution is a growing concern, with 22,000 tons of plastic waste being dumped into our oceans every day*. It was an awareness of this problem that prompted the founders of ​​AWAKE to come up with their idea, and it’s all about the goal: to create better objects for a better future.
ORIGINS is the new collection of awake watches : www.awakewatches.com









AWAKE will be available, on July 18th, on the crowdfunding platform, www.kickstarter.com. The first buyers will benefit from an exceptional launch price (249 USD instead of 369 USD).

We at Industry Brands are very excited to be working with Gola. 

"Gola builds on its British sporting heritage to offer product that is authentic and original, remaining true to it's roots. As a brand it doesn't try too hard, it's not pretentious and it's not contrived, it's purely hardworking, loyal and genuine.

Landlord x Novesta Collaboration






LANDLORD X NOVESTA 

One of the best-loved and most popular brands throughout Europe, Novesta, has teamed up with LANDLORD a brand that was made in New York in 2016 and focuses on mixing luxury and streetwear together. 

LANDLORD's iconic feature is sport and contemporary casuals based on military tastes and has been inspired by the likes of Dennis Rodman (American Professional Basketball Player), Joseph Beuys, Southern Hip Hop and Mauri. 

Novesta like LANDLORD is famous for the background of military supply production since it's foundation historically. Because of the uniqueness of Novesta's sneakers, which pair imaginative designs with timeless sophistication, Novesta tend to only work with brands that they have something in common with them (whether this be nature, history and tastes etc). The collaboration between Novesta and LANDLORD makes perfect sense as they both have an angle of military supply production and because of this the two aimed at making pairs of new military trainers for the Spring Summer 2018 with the textile being developed by LANDLORD and the project and production being run by Novesta. 

The trainer's cost $320.00 (£232.86) and are stocked at LANDLORD's stockists: Barney's, Opening Ceremony, SSENSE and trendy boutiques in Japan.
