(capsule) New York
12 Jul. 2010
NEW STRIDES FOR CAPSULEThe New York-based progressive menswear platform (capsule) is entering its seventh season on a vital note, with a brand new home in Chelsea and its most directional lineup yet.
The show, a week from today, moves to Center 548 in Chelsea, formerly the headquarters of the DIA art foundation.
Exhibitor highlights include the American debut of Kitsune, the clothing label from the Parisian collective; a relaunch of John Bartlett’s eponymous collection; the Anglo-American stylings of Grahame Fowler; and the quietly sophisticated diffusion line of SPURR by recent CFDA nominee Simon Spurr. New launches meanwhile will include Eastland Made in Maine, a range of vintage-inspired, handsewn American footwear, and Hush Puppies 1958, a progressive footwear collection inspired by the brand’s archives.
Exclusive initiatives, reflecting the community of unabashedly creative upstarts, designers, retailers and artists the show has fostered with soul and ingenuity over the past seven seasons, include a special installation by the conceptual architect Annie Kwon and EMEHT agency on (capsule)’s rooftop lounge; “Of Other Species,” an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, video and installations by seven New York-based independent artists; and the (capsule) Travel Mart, an online pop-up shop featuring travel accessories designed exclusively by Mark McNairy, Ally Capellino, Jack Spade and SHARPS Barber & Shop. Items may be purchased at Capsuleshow.com or at Oaknyc.com.
