For those of you just tuning in BPMW is the showroom and PR firm behind the (capsule) trade show (which I covered extensively this season). Expect lots of coverage about F/W … Continue reading

INSPIRED BY… | OSCAR BEST ACTOR NOMINEES 2012

oscarheader

 The Oscars are that event everyone loves to hate. Despite this, I still have a soft spot for them. Call me old fashioned, but if you strip away all the hype, Joan rivers pre-shows, and gratuitous Brangelina close-ups, the Academy Awards are still the most sincere way America can celebrate one of our most beloved, … Continue reading

BKLYN DRY GOODS x MICHAEL MACKO AT MRKET

BKDrygoodsxMacko-28

As two weeks of tradeshow coverage come to a close, I wanted to end with something exceptional.  I found just that in this installation at MRket, one of the larger, more ‘old school’ tradeshows.  The installation were a collaboration between BKLYN Dry Goods, (which I recently mentioned in my 2011 round up) and the great … Continue reading

PROJECT // IN PHOTOS

project-31

Above: Todd Snyder If trade shows were beauty pageant contestants, (capsule) would take home the prize for being the most popular, well dressed yet equally smart girl in the room, while PROJECT might win for being the promising and stunning ingenue, (ENK? Well, let’s not go there). After spending a couple days at (capsule) – … Continue reading

(CAPSULE) // BRAND HIGHLIGHT: TIMBERLAND

Timberland-2

Probably one of the more surprising showings was from Timberland, yep, that Timberland. Looks like they’ve been changing their tune a bit with the entirely new workwear inspired line, Abington, and freshly revamped GT Scramble line up. Both are good moves for the brand, which is smartly seeking more traction with forward-dressing urbanites, and I … Continue reading

(CAPSULE) // PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT: GOLDEN BEAR X ENGINEERED GARMENTS LEATHER JACKET

GoldenBear-2

Even if you think you don’t know Golden Bear you probably do – they’re responsible for partnering with brands – like Unionmade and the BK Circus –  to make some of the most sought after varsity jackets in the past couple of years.  While famous for the varsity, recently, they’ve flexed their non-varsity muscles by creating a line of … Continue reading

(CAPSULE) FEATURE // OVADIA & SONS

Ovadia2-4

While there were many noteworthy collections at (capsule) this year, one name was on everyone’s “must see” list: Ovadia & Sons. After a strong showing at the S/S (capsule) last year, greatness was anticipated by many, and I think I speak for everyone when I say Ariel and Shimon exceeded expectations. I was fortunate that … Continue reading

(CAPSULE) // PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT: OUTLIER ‘SOFT CORE’ SHIRTING

Outlier-1

This season (capsule) worked with Andrea Westerlind to curate Above Tree Line, a “show in show” which featuring outdoors brands including Outlier. Outlier is an NYC company that specializes in tailored clothing for the active urbanite. What does that mean? Essentially, clothing that will hold up as well on a bike or hiking trail as … Continue reading

This year (capsule) NYC has found itself a new home further down town on Washing St. The space is larger than in years past – a huge blank canvas warehouse that for these two days is transformed by the presence of over 200 brands and an impressive cast of menswear buyers, designers, bloggers, publications and … Continue reading
