Catching up on our Journal updates from our recent buying trips. Picking up where we last left off… immediately after wrapping up our busy schedule in Paris, the HAVEN team and I were on a plane to NYC for part 2 of the Fashion Week buying trip. Our first meeting was with Battery Showroom.
Amen to that! New Bandannas from Kapital.
Apparently when making this bandanna, one of Kapital’s junior designers was responsible for hand drawing each individual character for its border. The kanji says “Chikara” which means “Power!”
Next up Stone Island and Shadow Project
This was a strange discovery.
Next up was the Nepenthes showroom in the garment district. Really strong collection coming up for Fall/Winter 2017 from Engineered Garments.
Tung breaks down the Reigning Champ and wings + horns collections for Fall/Winter. This was the last appointment of the day for both parties so beer was well deserved.
wings + horns continues their ongoing collaboration with adidas for another season. This collection features more footwear and a special line of products made in Canada.
Former President Barack Obama was all smiles when we visited Needles and Common Projects.
Nguyen may be feeling the hurt from the night prior.
Thats all for NYC, up next Tokyo!
