Buyer’s Log | Round 4

The other week I was just out in Tokyo again for the 4th round of our Japanese FW14 buying schedule.  Hectic! Typically me and Dan rarely travel to Tokyo together, but this time around both of us went, as well as our photographer/videographer Ryan Lindow joined the ride. We had the opportunity to check out some unchartered territory in Tokyo,  Fun times for sure! It’s also been awhile since we’ve done some Intelligence coverage in Japan, and we made it a big priority to get some footage of people and places. We have some really cool interviews and features in the pipeline that we’ll be rolling out in the next few months. Stay tuned. We also finished up the final round of our Tokyo buying for the season, and each and every brand is killing it for Fall 2014. Summer is just around the corner, but already I can’t wait for Fall. Here are some shots from our trip.

Buyer’s Log | Tokyo in April

I’ve been spending a ton of time in Tokyo these last couple months.  These photos were taken in early April at the peak of Sakura blooming. The cherry blossoms only bloom once a year for a single week, and during this time Tokyo is hectic, it’s pretty much like New Years for them… I was lucky to have it fall on the week that I visited…I’d hit up Nakameguro to see the amazing river fully blossomed or go chill in Yoyogi park with a beer or a six pack!!…Anyways this time around I visited the usual suspects, as well as some new ones. We’ll be introducing a handful of new brands to the HAVEN roster next season that we’re super stoked on.  Fun trip all in all… met up with some friends, checked out some crazy robots, and took care of business at some exhibitions…. check out some randoms below

Buyer’s Log | Neighborhood Tokyo Headquarters

This past week I have been out in Tokyo for a 3rd round of our seasonal buying trips in Japan. Up first was a visit to the Neighborhood Tokyo Headquarters in Sendagaya. This coming Fall 2014 – Archive No. 0142 Exhibition marks the start of their 20th Anniversary. As always you can expect a gang of really exciting projects and collaborations  that are in the works.  Here’s a glimpse into their Tokyo showroom and some teaser shots of next seasons collection.

Buyer’s Log | FW14 NYC Market Week Highlights – Part One

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.

Common Projects

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!

Visvim in Paris

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.
