PROJECT New York Style Roundup, Part 1

It goes without saying that a meeting of creative, stylish minds such as PROJECT would result in excellent scouting grounds for killer ensembles. We were hunting for denim, but PROJECT-goers (exhibitors and guests alike) all packed some punch in the dressing department. From full length dresses to dapper suits and Hamptons-bound pastels, we captured some of our favorite looks for a post-show round up. Expect to see some covetable denim as well.   Stay tuned for part 2!

Onassis: High Fashion Denim & Sportswear You Can Totally Afford

Here at PROJECT NY we got the chance to speak to one of the brands that is on the forefront of men’s fashion, Onassis. The company is comprised of a small team that is committed to excellence, which is why they only release 12-33 units of each item and then start creating more greatness. Comfort is their top priority but don’t worry, they have boutique quality while maintaining reasonable prices. This fall they will be releasing denim in three fits: a relaxed straight-leg, a skinny, and a slim, and the options don’t stop there as they will feature at least three washes per fit. The team also let us in on a new “wave dye” they have for vests, chinos, and 5 pocket jeans and take note, it is a definite must-have.

The best part is that we didn’t just love their denim—everything they had to show us from bags to outerwear to knits blew us away! Onassis may be new to the fashion world, but after seeing not even half of their collection at the show today, we know they’ll be around for quite some time.

Hand Printed Denim? Copperwheat Is What We’ve Been Waiting For

Talent runs in the family for cousins Ben and Lee who co-own the fashion-forward clothing brand Copperwheat (Yes, that is the same Lee Copperwheat who was co-designer of the hot London fashion brand Copperwheat Blundell). The eye-catching printed denim instantly pulled us in to their booth at the PROJECT show here in New York, right where the brand is based. The brand is in the process of experimenting with a bunch of different areas, such as furniture, shoe wear, and accessories. Ben, who hand designs the prints himself, filled us in on how Copperwheat is not the brand for the conservative man—it is already a hit overseas in Hong Kong and we have no doubt in our minds that us here in the states will fall in love very soon as well. If neon colors are too bold for you, they offer a more subtle black on black print that is just as appealing as the rest of the collection. While they are not currently available in stores, look out for their online store that will be up in the next month (we know we’ll be waiting in anticipation).

Renee Talks About The Raw Denim Project On Local Online Talk Show, Talking Schmidt

Denim Therapy’s Renee appeared on Talking Schmidt, a local online talk show to discuss her raw denim. She has her jeans test-sniffed by another guest, and explains the eco-repercussions of jeans that are processed with chemicals. When asked whether her raw denim cut or bruised her, she revealed that in the first week, her hips were bruised and the back of her knees were raw! That’s dedication! Informative and amusing, Renee shows up in the second half of the show, but watch the first half to catch some music and interviews.
