MARK OBLOW BIOGRAPHY

Born and raised on Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, Mark Oblow’s illustrious and creative career started as a sponsored surfer at a young age.

Turning full-steam towards his true passion for skateboarding at 12 years old, Oblow rode for prominent brands, Vision Skateboards, Independent Trucks and Jimmy-Z.

Relocating to California in 1990, he became an integral and influential leader with Color, Vita Shoes, Indian Ink, Prime, etc.

His ability to develop, inspire and manage people successfully is embedded into the history of brands like Think, Quiksilver, Analog and Gravis, (to name a few) as a team manager and creative director.

In addition to his influence over the past 20+ years helping to define the identity of what we call skateboarding today, his photography career, not surprisingly, has spanned from working with the likes of David Beckham, Snoop Dog, Ozzy Osbourne to Katy Perry.

His first photo ads were in Thrasher Magazine via Alva and Santa Cruz Skateboards when he was in high school.

Over the years, Oblow has been featured in countless publications and periodicals for his design, artwork, photography, and skateboarding.

Today, as a culmination of his life experiences within photography and art, Oblow captures, cuts, paints and immortalizes his subjects within his growing journal entries, mural installations and canvas’, all barreling towards what is identified as a true artist.

His “Stuck To Me” series for 2016 blends all of his various disciplines, combining them with finished polymer resin. Melding surfing and skateboarding into one, the outcome are pieces described as beautiful, personal and timeless.

Mark Oblow’s solo works have shown in California, Brazil and Japan with group shows in Antwerp and Tokyo.

“moblow” is his namesake DIY lifestyle brand supporting skateboarders and artists alike.

He currently resides in Costa Mesa, California.

MARK OBLOW FOR FITTED COLLECTION

In honor of his first solo art show here in his hometown, we teamed up with Mark Oblow on a specially curated collection of hats and tops in collaboration with his lifestyle brand, moblow. It will be released in-store and online on Friday, June 24 (the same day as his opening) at 11am HST.

The collection consists of four pieces—a 9FIFTY snapback, a 5-panel camp hat, a pocket tee, and a tank top—all featuring original artwork by Mark Oblow.

Both hats feature his signature moblow logo on the front and are made out of nylon micro-ripstop. The snapback utilizes a black crown with his artwork covering the visor and top button. The front logo is stitched in white, while the side and back logos are stitched in pink. It also features mint eyelets, a teal sweatband, and a white snap enclosure. The 5-panel camp hat showcases Mark’s artwork across the entire hat, which also includes white eyelets and pink embroidery on the front, sides, and back. A black clip enclosure and white/pink crest tag are seen in the back.

The Kai pocket tee features an illustration from one of Mark’s pieces of the same name printed on the pocket, with a yellow crown and moblow logo on the back, printed on a black tee. The white WTCF tank top highlights his artwork by filling it within our FITTED logo on the front, while placing a pink crown and moblow logo on the back.

ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF

Thursday, June 19th, 2014 by

Hey guys,

 

Iʻm finally on here and am excited to be able to share my thoughts with all of  you! First off, Iʻd like to start with a quick introduction; For those of you whom I havenʻt had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Alia and you may find yourself running into me on any given day at the shop. I’ve been with FITTED for almost 2 years now, and the new experiences and friendships I encounter daily have been so priceless to me.  Coming into this company, I was aware of the ohana that surrounded the brand.  I was also very hesitant and afraid of not being accepted by this unbreakably bonded “family.”  Slowly, but surely I’ve become a part of this ever-growing ohana (and I’m not just talking about employees).  Our loyal supporters are the sh*t!  So much aloha run through their veins and it’s so contagious.  They define our saying “Aloha Served Daily” so well.

With the start of our summer collection beginning, I wanted to capture the essence of this past spring season before beers and beaches take over.  With us nearing our ten year anniversary, we wanted to bring back a few of our personal favorite, older designs for our Spring 14 “Legacy” Collection.  Pictured below are some of our customers, both new and old, that camped out every weekend for ten weeks!  For the rest of you that physically can’t be here, we haven’t forgotten about you!  Our appreciation goes beyond words.  I’m so stoked to be here and I hope you guys are ready for summer!

 

XOXO,

Alia

SPRING 2014 D1 “WATER IS LIFE”

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014 by

Releasing in-store and online this Saturday, February 15th.

WAIALEALE_01

“Mōhala i ka wai ka maka o ka pua” (Unfolded by the water are the faces of flowers).

Starting off with this powerful quote, we build upon its principle meaning: Water is needed to sustain life. It plays a crucial part in the growth and prosperity of all living things. In Hawai‘i, we’re surrounded by it, we use it for nourishment and entertainment, and we ultimately embrace it.

Hawai‘i is also home to one of the wettest spots in the world. Mt. Waiʻaleʻale, also known as the Heart of Kaua‘i, averages about 450 inches of rainfall annually. Its precipitation supplies numerous waterfalls, sending down rushing streams on all sides to feed the only navigable rivers in the state. Mt. Waiʻaleʻale is by far one of Hawai‘i’s most vibrant tropical rainforests, and as such provides the foundation for our Spring 2014 Delivery One capsule: “Water is Life.”

Stay tuned for product shots of all the pieces in the collection.
