NY Snaps: Day 1

01

Info

—01. New York, July 2011.

Words

The first day in New York was a long one. Owen and I arrived early Monday morning to meet Simon, with just enough time to drop our bags off, have a shower and hit the subway for a day full of showrooms and meetings. It was great to have a second look at Engineered Garments and Post Overalls, while having a stroll through Capsule and a first good viewing of Arc'teryx Veilance.

Words

The second issue of The Green Soccer Journal has finally landed in Vancouver this past week. The 'France Issue' covers a variety of interesting people and organizations, as well as offers a nice mix of editorial and product focuses. The latest is definitely a step up for the UK based publication as the imagery, direction and content all look very sharp.

Common Projects Achilles

01

Info

—01. Summer Tan Achilles.

Words

I've been wearing my tan Achilles pretty frequently these days. The soft italian leather is so supple and comfortable it's definitely my go to choice when the sun is out. With that being said, the colour way would also work well with most fall clothing combinations, giving a muted outfit that subtle pop, making this sneaker a seasonal staple. Constructionally solid and aesthetically simple, the Achilles is a great option season after season.

FrenchTrotters Portraits

01

Video

—01. Olivier.

Words

Clarent Dehlouz of Paris's FrenchTrotters has been busy shooting short videos for the shop as of late. In addition to the films from Pitti and Paris Fashion Week, the Portrait series offers a brief look at people and their home environments. Nicely shot and well scored, the Portraits are beautiful little glimpses into people's daily lives — Olivier's choice of reading material isn't bad either.

Want: Head Porter Stellar

01

Images

—01. Camera strap.
—02. Waist bag.
—03. Digital camera case.

Words

I really want a small bag, pouch or case for my point and shoot. Ideally it would be just big enough for my camera, a pen, a small note pad and maybe some business cards. The small hip pack from the Stellar collection is atop my list right now, although the small digital camera case isn't a bad option if its just for the camera. The only problem is that I wish I had found it before I left for New York.

Behind the Scenes: Band of Outsiders

01

Info

—01. Florence, June 2011.

Words

Although there is a crazy mix of SS12 previews, along with FW11 posts of items arriving and coming soon - these images by Piotr are worth a look regardless of the season. He was invited backstage to document the day of that Band of Outsiders showcased their SS12 collection in Florence. The shots turned out nicely and although its only a glimpse into the clothing and design, it gives the collection and brand a nice feel and texture that the runway photos might not.

Manastash

Words

Manastash is another one of those outdoor brands that have seen success in Japan, but only recently have cracked into the western markets. The bright color blocking, technical fabrics and Japanese take on North American outdoors is a proven winning combination. The brand originally launched in the 90s in Seattle, but is now garnering a more casual market in North American and Europe - they'll be showing for the first time at Capsule NY next week.

Editor's Pick: Porter for Monocle Boston Bag

01

Info

—01. Comes with a variety of small, useful bags.

Words

I purchased this Boston bag a little over two years ago, and I think it's been with me on every trip since. The size is perfect to carry on, it's big enough for almost a week's worth of clothes, with some edited packing, and it comes with a nice variety of useful small bags inside. It's easy enough to carry, and considering how much I've used it, it doesn't look more than a month or two old, which bodes well for the long run.
