JKISSI : Capsule has finally brought their world class trade show to New York City, and I had the perfect opportunity to attend the event for the first time. There was always talks about capsule taking place every year in various parts of the world from Paris back to the U.S. It seems like a lot of people are still unaware of what capsule is hopefully after this you will have a better understanding. My first thought of the exhibit was its diversity among brands being shown there, basically products that everyone could appreciate. The most interesting aspect of the trade show was that they provided a platform for newer brands from all over the world to showcase their product. I’m always excited to see new brands that I have never heard of because we all know the starting of any brand isn’t a simple task. I got to meet a lot of great people who I have established relationships with online such as Ryan from h(y)r, and our good friends BillyKirk who continue to ‘wow’ us with their leather making skills. The amount of brands present made it physically impossible to capture every brand/product , but we did take part in the ones that interested us the most.

Up and coming spring 2010 Red Wing models, real impressive here.
The color variation of the shoes makes this brand one of my favorites at the show. Just the history alone can pull you into a brand.
This fellow here was hand sewing the shoes from scratch you can’t help but watch him make the full complete shoe.
The pattern of this bag/duffle really caught my eye as I was walking reminding me of African print/patterns on a bag. They’re a new company from the U.K be on the lookout for them.
