This past weekend we had the opportunity to host our first Trunkshow with visvim. Located at our new Gastown Vancouver location at 52 East Cordova invited guests were able to preview select pieces from next seasons SS15 collection. Here are a few shots of the space.
Walking around Paris between showrooms was really an interesting part of my Paris trip. The city had an easy and slow vibe with modern but also old-fashioned atmosphere. People are randomly taking their smoke breaks on the street, playing music, skating or playing soccer. There was definitely a different view from the cities I’ve ever visited. Below are some photos and highlights that I shot.
We quickly stopped by the Capsule show.
Next up are the SS15 White Mountaineering and OAMC showrooms. OAMC is still a new brand to us but it has an eye catching quality and use of colors which is very distinct from any other brands. White Mountaineering also has some great pieces as well for SS15.
Our last stop was COMME des GARCONS Junya Watanabe MAN. Next seasons is based on Japanese Indigo and Boro’s theme.
After leaving Paris behind, we stopped by Berlin just to hang out. German beer is cheap but good. I really recommend to go to Germany if you are a beer drinker!
A couple weeks ago I had an opportunity to visit Paris during the Men’s fashion week along with Arthur and Daniel. It was my first time in Paris, so I was quite excited to see the city, people, and culture. Also one of our photographers, Jan, who now lives in London, flew there on the same day to meet up and enjoy Paris.
The first part of our workload was to make a visit to the visvim Paris showroom.
On our way home, we walked into this wine/sake store that can provide you glasses for tasting and has a table on the street. It was like a small standing party on the street with friends and definitely had a different atmosphere.. well because It’s PARIS!
Next early morning, we headed to the Undercover Paris showroom to check out for their SS15 collection. Undercover is one of my favorite brands, here’s some shots from the showroom.
Below are some of our favourite picks for SS15.
Team HAVEN’s European buying trip continuing soon…
Arthur and I recently had the chance to sit down with James Oliver over at The New Order Magazine for a chat. If you’re interested in seeing a bit more of the inner workings of the company, head over to their site and give it a read!

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.
Big thanks to Ryan Lindow for capturing some great shots for us on our trip.
