Appaman is a children's brand created by Lynn and Harald Husum. Founded over breakfast at a polish diner in the East Village in 2003, Harald’s background in advertising and graphic design has been instrumental in creating the children’s brand that it is today.
Appaman is inspired by, and named after, the childhood companion of founder and designer Harald Husum. While growing up in Norway, Husum befriended a corduroy ape named Appaman. Together they traveled the fields and fjords of their native land, sharing many fantastic adventures. Appaman reflects the whimsical spirit of those youthful times and celebrates the unbreakable bond between a boy and his ape.
Devising a lifestyle that consumers cannot get enough of, Appaman’s classic style is in-fashion but not too trendy. Finding the majority of the brands inspiration on the mean streets of Brooklyn, Husum translates it into his ever-changing palette of vibrant garments fusing today’s silhouettes with a child’s sensibility. Every season new pieces are created, and tried and true favorites are updated.
Appaman has grown at a steady pace, adding to the collection every season, expanding with fun pieces and exploring new lines. Although Appaman is growing we never forget our commitment to customer service and garment quality. So far, so good, and the fantastic adventures keep on coming.
Appaman consists of sportswear, outerwear, premium denim, fine tailoring and accessories for children six months to ten years.
