When it comes to travel days and days on-the-go, there are few things as gratifying as grabbing your casual go-to and knowing that your outfit is set and totally on-point... All. Day. Long. I want to share the love and introduce you to your new favorite bottoms; The Hail Yes Trackpants from ADAY, the women’s activewear line who're taking minimal style to the next level. The Hail Yes are the result of a mission to create Trackpants you would be proud to wear anywhere, anytime, your way, and I can vouch for that with a "hell yes"! They're a vision of technically-crafted versatility, functionality, and style. Keep it super simple in the Matte Black, or turn it up with a (sweat-free) leather look in their Wetlook Black. Get set below:

Miike Snow - My Trigger
(Official Video)

"It was a real pleasure to make another Miike Snow video. Once again the track got me from the first listen - just super catchy and clever as always. After the success and fandom for the "Genghis Khan" video we always discussed this being a sequel of sorts. I loved the thought of having a chance to see the same cast dancing again and also play with that very cinematic yet surprising tone. However I also didn't want to just retread the same ground as the first video; That's when I had the idea of this being a bit like a double bill rather than a sequel. We use the same cast, crew and style but in a whole new world. The "My Trigger" lyrics quickly led me to the tense politics of the cold war and the pressure of the very near nuclear annihilation we nearly faced. These fears also feel interestingly precedent in todays worrying political landscape. It was fun pushing things further this time - really going to town on the 30s Hollywood musical numbers, beautiful set design and costume." - Ninian Doff, Director

"Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.” The relativity of time is never lost on us. Entire lives were lead in the space between the immigration officer’s words as he evaluated our paperwork. Yet blink once and two perfect weeks pass by in a second. We showed up at Joe and Sarah’s house in Evergreen expecting to spend a day or two recharging our batteries and hanging out with a some friends we knew only from the internet. A day or two became a week or two, July became August, and friends became family. We still don’t know how it happened. Evergreen is a mile above sea level, so failed recipes, bad hangovers and broken down motorcycles were forgiven. Can the passing of time can be blamed on the elevation too? Or was it the weed?
