Part two of our NYC Market Week trip is here! Arthur, Nguyen and I saw so much good stuff on the trip that it was too hard to fit it all into one post. Check out some of the best highlights below.
The Engineered Garments showroom. EG always kills it. Doing their order is tough because the line is huge and everything is good!
The CYC loft showroom in Chelsea. This is wings + horns 10th year anniversary and for FW14 they took inspiration from their first season and re-worked some of their very first pieces.
This Cowichan below is an archive piece from the very first wings + horns collection 10 Years ago. It is handknitted with cut up strands of fleece sweatshirts!
Racks and racks on wings + horns!
Reigning Champ always has some of the nicest fabrics.
Kenta taking us through the line.
Soba noodle break at Soba-Koh in the East village.
This place was amazing actually. I highly recommend it if you want authentic noodles.
Stone Island FW14 is looking exceptional. One of my favourite Stone Island collections to date.
We got some crazy jackets coming next season!
Sneak peek at next season’s Fishtail from Shadow Project.

Skinny Mike is all about juicing.

Briefing is one of our favourite bag lines in the shop.
Their everyday bags are awesome. Well thought out and lots of compartments for all your things.
The LVC showroom.
The Ten c showroom. This was Andrea’s jacket from Ten c’s first collection!
The jacket has developed some incredibly nice wear.
So long New York. It was fun, but way too cold!
Art and I have been on the road for some time now for our seasonal buying trips. After Paris a couple weeks back, we hopped on a plane and headed straight to NYC to meet Nguyen for market week. It’s been challenging fitting in all our meetings into such a short time frame but we’ll worth it when we get to see good collections. Personally, I enjoy seeing Fall collections more so than Spring/Summer as it feels more substantial. Here are some highlights so far.
Needles is quickly becoming a favourite here at the shop. Next Fall season is going to be killer!
Nguyen Le – Assistant buyer and samurai warrior
We stopped by (Capsule) quickly between meetings to say hi to a few friends. Alex from Lexdray
Takeshi and Nguyen discussing Caruso buttons.
Takeshi Ohfuchi – The man behind Post Overalls.
One of my favourite tops from next Fall’s Kapital collection.
Stay tuned, part 2 coming soon!
Always a highlight of our Paris trip is previewing the visvim collection in their showroom. For AW14 the collection is inspired by good ol’ Ronald Raegan and the All American Cowboy. In typical visvim fashion we continue to see the use of exceptional fabrics and construction techniques that we’ve come to know from Hiroki Nakamura. Below are some photos I snapped from around the showroom.
