We were able to attend the Capsule and Coterie trade shows this weekend in NYC to see some of the best new brands and emerging designers. After roughing it out in a blizzard during Capsule Mens, we welcomed the sunny weekend to meet some inspiring people in womenswear and see their latest work. Here are some of the designers who stood out to us:
We really loved Kiely Kimmel 's line of garments and knits. The distinct textures work well with the muted colors and simple silhouettes. As a textile designer, she puts a lot of thought into the quality of fabrics she works with.
Chiyome bags are proudly designed and made in NYC. At Young and Able, it's important to us to know where materials are sourced from and how products are made. We were happy to learn that the studio supports high ethical standards in all stages of sourcing and development.
WE LOVE. Tiro Tiro is designed by Teresa Robinson, who we were lucky enough to meet at Capsule this weekend. Her gorgeous line of jewelry and art objects reflects traditional craft practices - Teresa has 15 years of jewelry-making experience and knowledge to pull from.
Kyyote is a hand-crafted accessories line from LA that plays with geometry and bold bursts of color. The artist Amanda Loos is inspired by the aesthetic relationship of primitive and tribal adornment with modernist art and architecture. Her designs have us dreaming of summer days...
Haven't you ever wondered how all those beautiful indigo blue tie-dyes are made? Kalen and Astrid began using the traditional Japanese dye technique called Shibori to make their one-of-a-kind apparel, scarves and bedding. We are fascinated by the unique and intricate effects Shibori can create on different fabrics.
We are always looking for emerging designers to work with, so please feel free to reach out to us and share your work!
