I was so bad this season, not bringing out my camera. The (capsule) show this year showed a lot of growth from past shows. The show which in New York has always taken place at the Angel Orensanz Center on the Lower East Side, expanded this year to include the Puck Building in SoHo. It was great bumping to old friends and meeting new people, and seeing people who I respect creatively. As for the staples that have been with capsule for a while now, Public School continues to excite, and their diffusion line The Black Apple, is greatly tailored and modern. Naked & Famous designers, are two great guys, who have an obsession with well made denim, taking the time to explain to me the Japanese process of creating denim, as well as Japanese knitting techniques, which they use throughout their collection. It was great to see Palladiums come back strong, with great price points and slick design silhouettes. Red Wing brought the heat of course, as I come to expect a certain level of work from them they didn’t disappoint. All in all, good show, good vibes, and a great cocktail! Belvedere, Newman’s Own Lemonade, and raspberry liquer.
