fashionshow

The time has come, once again, for your favorite fashion event of the year, the annual Communion Fashion Show! Thrown at our beloved Dig A Pony, the event will take place on Wednesday, November 19th beginning at 7:30pm. You’re going to want to show up early though…because the first 50 guests (doors open at 6:30) will be getting a free pair of Stance socks!

There will be a stellar fashion walk, tasty drinks, scrumptious food, sweet giveaways from Stance, RVCA, and Communion, plus a raffle to benefit The Pixie Project, a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue located in the heart of Portland. Prizes will include products from Juniper Ridge, FjallRaven, RAINS, Brixton, and more! We will also be raffling off Gift Certificates for Communion, as well as other local retailers!

Come celebrate our love of style and community! Have a blast with Communion, Stance, RVCA, Juniper Ridge, and all of our awesome sponsors! Come for the fashion and the freebies, but stay for the drinks and good times! We’ll see ya there!

New Neuw arrivals!

A ton of gems from NEUW just came in to the shop! Come try on these bad boys from the Black Rope Collection, plus a ton of other pieces for both men and women. We’re talkin’ a bunch of awesome denim, killer dresses, toasty sweaters, and so much more. C’mon what more could you possibly want?!

“Black Rope Denim is traditional rope dyed yarn wrapped in black wax. As punk redefined music, we have redefined traditional denim at it’s core. Black Rope denim customizes uniquely to the wearer revealing 3D layers and the distinct looks of blue and black.”

Neuw is a brand rooted in tradition, yet updated with modern fits and design. For that, we can expect high quality manufacturing with a touch of rebellion. Nothing showcases this vision more than the new Neuw Denim Black Rope Denim collection.

“We make the little shit better. The stuff you have that isn’t noticed first, but can’t be ignored. We pay attention to it. We argue about it. We work day and night to make the little shit as good as it can be, so when you wear it, you feel like you’ve got a leg up on the rest of the world.

We believe that you warrant a lot of respect. When you choose to wear a watch, put on your headphones, or select a wallet to hold your hard earned cash, you deserve to have something that reflects your entire package. You may not know how to say it, but you’ve got something to say and you can’t slap on an off-the-shelf piece and consider yourself you. That’s why in ’98 we started Nixon and that’s why all these years later, we’re still here.

Nestled comfortably against the Pacific Ocean in Southern California and with offices tucked neatly next to some of the best spots in Europe, Australia, and Asia you’ll find Nixon people doing what we do. We make accessories to reflect who we are and the life we live. We travel all corners of the globe to experience life and it is through these explorations, the people we meet and the journey to get there that takes shape in the things we create.

It started as a frustration at a lack of quality watches that simultaneously do the talking for you and has since grown into a group of athletes, rock stars, retailers, and dedicated loyalists that bring Nixon products to market. Fueled by adventures far and wide and often sometimes by those that happen just down the street we deliver products that meet your needs in various high-stress work and play environments. It is through our dedicative team’s perspectives that we contribute to a single unified expression: team-designed, custom-built accessories for a life well lived. Welcome to Nixon.”
