For over 10 years Horny Toad has created clothes for an adventurous lifestyle; blending function and style without compromise. The brand's Spring 2013 collection is no exception, featuring a mixture of technical apparel ideal for any outdoor exploration and fashion-forward pieces that perform just as well at home on city streets as they do on the trail.

“For this season we really focused on functional fabrics that feel and fit great," says Paige Harvey, Senior Designer at Horny Toad. “We then married those fabrics with fashionable designs to create a collection of truly versatile pieces."

At this summer's OR show, Horny Toad introduces two new amphibious fabrics, Skinny Dip and Upwell. These fabrics have lightening-fast quick-dry properties with a soft, comfortable hand. Skinny Dip, a blend of polyester, Tencel®, and spandex, can be found in the women's Seahorse Dress, which is ideal for any beach outing or travel adventure. With a Y-racer back and built-in shelf bra this soft and silky jersey-knit is sure to be a women's best friend.

For both men and women, Upwell fabric, a nylon and spandex blend, delivers performance and comfort to create the perfect pair of shorts for playing in or out of the water. The Wai Walker for men and the Aquifer Long for women both have drain-and-dry mesh pocketing, side hidden zipper welt pockets with an internal bungee loop, and a zip fly with snap closure and interior drawcord.

The women's Long Island dress, made from Horny Toad's popular Samba fabric (Tencel®/organic cotton/spandex), is a great example of how the brand combines technical elements into fashion-forward styles. With features such as a zipper stash pocket in the waistband and banded stitching at the hem that allows women to cut the dress to any desired length, this maxi dress is ideal for an evening out on the town or an outdoor travel adventure.

In addition to developing new fabrics, Horny Toad continues to focus on minimizing its environmental footprint and focusing on ways to. Additionally, Horny Toad continues to stand behind its products with a lifetime guarantee.
