If you hit up Downtown's fashion-filled Connected Fest earlier this month, you might've spotted one turquoise Volkswagen bus that stood out on the lot. Joining all the gourmet grub trucks, stylish mobile boutiques and plenty of others in the on-the-go retail game is LA-based tech accessories brand HEX, which has been parking their wheels around town at a host of flea markets and street fests since its launch last month.
Already stocked at a bevy of boutiques (Kitson, Fred Segal, MOCA, to name a few) and online, the design-minded label serves up sleek (and water-resistant!) laptop sleeves, smartphone cases, tech-friendly backpacks, messenger bags and more—and the pricing ($34.95 to $119.95) ain't too shabby, either. Stylish standouts include this very blogger-friendly tote ($79.95) and this cool urban-meets-outdoorsy backpack ($99.95).
Diggin' it? Find Hex at tonight's Fame Fest Street Market and at next Thursday's Downtown Art Walk, or check their Insta to see where they're rolling into next here.
