The Artifacts of Adventure

Every season the collection is inspired by stories, culture, climate, people and local textiles from travels to a different point on the map. The chase for Roark began out of a desire to tell stories born of adventure and discovery in the form of a man - he’s the bar-brawling adventurer that disappears into Mexico for six months camping, only to surface in Paris drinking Bordeaux with a diplomat’s daughter. Each season we find Roark in a different part of the world, telling stories of his exploits within our product, on social platforms and in a printed book at retail. Inspired by the culture and climate of Roark’s destination, we produce two collections per year of clothing, luggage and trinkets - the artifacts of adventure. The product and stories we create empower people to discover self through authentic, irreverent, dangerous and purposeful adventure on the road less traveled.

Vol. 22: “Wayward In Oaxaca“

Our latest Spring/Summer Collection follows Roark in Oaxaca, Mexico. Enshrouded in ancient mysticism and historic ruins, we sought inspiration from the vibrant city of Oaxaca for this season's offering. Traversing the Sierra Madre in search of traditional mezcaleros, we later sought refuge on the coast, soaking up all the right pointbreaks we could stomach.

Run Amok

We still feel that there is no better way to see the world around you than by moving through it on your own two feet. Forever encouraging freedom of expression through movement, Roark's perpetual journey provides a unique perspective on trail running and activewear born from adventure - somewhere between freedom and chaos.
