Including new 5 panel hats, 6 panel polo hats, snapback hats, relaxed snapback hats, mesh trucker hats, dead stock fabric hats. Also including new illustration and graphic printed long sleeve and short sleeve t shirts, and the new long sleeve zip hooded beach top.
Inspiration for the Quiet Life Vacation pack release was taken from the memories of long hot summers as a kid. Heading out first thing in the morning to go hang out with your friends, skating or surfing all day, talking about girls, figuring out where you can score beer from, listening to music and generally terrorizing the neighborhood, then hitting a house party up until late.
Pastel colours and brighter summer colours with a hint of the west coast vibe took president for the over all colour palette.
Along side some classic Quiet Life graphics and logos, there were some exclusive illustrations and art work from artists who took part in the annual Quiet Life Instagram Art and Illustration competition. We launched the art, illustration, design and graphic contest through our social media blogs. Saw hundreds of entrants, and then whittled them down to the top ten.
We where overwhelmed with the amount of entries we received online for the contest, and decided to run with two of the final designs for this collection. Linear Life designed by Mitch Chadban and Trenchcoat dog designed by Gabe Holzner. Both of their designs where printed on short sleeve and long sleeve t shirts. Providing the perfect graphics for a summer collection.
Along side the printed t shirts, long sleeve t shirts and long sleeve hooded zip through t shirt, was a fresh collection of hats. Consisting of polo hats, snapback hats, mesh trucker hats, relaxed fit snapback hats and 5 panel hats.
There where also two excusive 5 panel hats designed and made with exclusive rare dead stock fabrics. The Rainbow 5 panel hat and the Floral 5 panel hat where both made with dead stock fabrics, meaning these fabrics are end of line stock and never to be produced again.
The Quiet Life recently released the second of their limited Summer quick strike packs.

The event ran as both a pop up store for The Quiet Life x Travis Millard ‘Fudge Dwog’ artist capsule collection, and a mini art exhibition of the distinctive and fun art and illustration from Travis Millard.
Beer, Pizza and Ping Pong went down, along with the fine selection of clothing, hats and accessories from the collaboration collection.
The Quiet Life got together with long time QL guest artist and contributor Travis Millard for the creation of the Fudge Dwog capsule. Using Travis’s distinctive art and illustration to produce an amazing capsule collection.
Travis designed and illustrated the Fudge Dwog character for Quiet Life, loosely based around his dog. We then, here at The Quiet Life, created a clothing and accessory capsule collection around the Travis Millard Fudge Dwog art work.
The capsule collection consisted of, several unique cut and sew styles and of course several staple Quiet Life style hats.
Specifically designed, where the loop back French terry fleece Jackson crew sweat, woven short sleeve button up shirt, woven beach short, printed pocket t shirt, two 5 panel hats, trucker hat and a polo hat.
The look book for the Travis Millard collection was shot on location at Travis’s work space and studio in Echo Park Los Angeles, California.

The Spring/Summer 15′ collection titled ‘The Hippie Apocalypse’ takes its influence from the cult Detroit art anti-rock band Destroy All Monster (DAM). DAM initially lasted from 1973-78 with original members Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw, Niagara, Cary Loren and later joined by several members from The Stooges and MC5. The band was a departure from the free spirited hippie haze and found influences within Sun RA, Velvet Underground and ESP-Disk. The Hippie Apocalypse is our view into this transition era moving into futurism.
