Capsule NY – Men’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collections


capsuleCapsule New York Men’s tradeshow, a well curated showcase of progressive apparel and accessories brands from the US, Europe and Asia, came to a close yesterday.  This marked Capsule’s seventh season in New York presenting Spring/Summer 2011 collections, and a move to a new venue – Center 548, once home to the DIA art foundation in the heart of the Chelsea gallery district.

Exciting designers that caught my eye were from CFDA-nominated Simon Spurr’s diffusion line, Spurr. The selvedge and non-selvedge jeans are high quality - minimalist styles and they come in two fits, pipe or classic – now one of my husband’s favorite jeans; Kitsun?, although denim is not their thing, it was their US debut with a fabulous collection; a new denim company debuting was Canton Overall, premium Japanese jeans, which are not your normal looking jeans, ultra high-cuffed bottoms revealing the selvedge stitching made for an interesting style (perhaps a little Junya Watanabe’ish); Naked & Famous, the Toronto based denim and apparel company had two great jeans, a cashmere blend and a linen blend that was super soft to the touch. For a good laugh, they had a pair of the heaviest denim jeans I have ever seen, a whopping 32 ounces! And added for honorable mention, was Gilbert & Lewis’s adorable boldly colored slim fitted plaid and gingham shirts with built in bow-ties!  A perfect top to pair with your favorite selvedge jeans.

When it came time for a break and a bite to eat, the rooftop lounge was a peaceful retreat of tables with Stark ghost chairs, an art installation created by conceptual architects Annie Kwon & EMEHT agency titled “The Cocoon”, foot tapping music, and a serene view of the city’s skyline that created an ?ber cool relaxing fashion break.
