As a fashion and lifestyle writer, I had an opportunity to rub elbows with the brains behind the world’s most innovative and sought-after brands recently. Designers, Fashion Editors and Buyers swaggered their way from studio to studio with excitement and confidence. Location? The meatpacking district – New York City. The event? (Capsule)-a fashion and lifestyle trade event that fuses the best high-end contemporary brands, directional independent designers and super premium street wear labels.
Brands like FORAGE Haberdashery, Land by Land, In God We Trust, Terrapin Stationers and Bellocq Tea Atelier are some of the brands that welcomed the fashionistas at the entrance of the (Capsule). Vintage pieces and radical materials certainly got me excited; such a cool preview of what’s inside the (Capsule).
Trotting from studio to studio, the
overall aesthetic screams talent. The participating designers (http://www.capsuleshow.com/nymens.php) absolutely displayed such a scrumptious array of style to look forward to in the stores near you and on the streets soon.
The (Capsule) certainly covered what any metrosexual needs whether he’s in a boardroom, at a swanky lounge or just chilling at a park on a sunday afternoon.
This year, the advisory board added another savvy section where Form meets function. Woodchips on the floor & cups of beer gave some cheer to this year’s “above the tree line”. The woody section showcased brands focused on performance outdoor apparel.
Parched? Hi/lo screwdrivers were offered at the New Amsterdam Vodka lounge.
It was indeed a buffet of fashion trends in a (Capsule).
