We have been spending this week some time in Copenhagen to visit some of the tradeshows that are going on here at the moment. Last night we were at the WoodWood Spring/Summer ’08 fashion show and the Adidas Originals Spring/Summer ’08 fashion show. A great event, some more on that later.
Firs thing we did was visit the Caliroots Showroom that is set up in Copenhagen during the tradeshows. They brought out the Crooks & Castles collection, The Hundreds, Reigning Champs and also the Ransom Fall 2007 collection. It was the first time that we saw the Ransom collection live.
The Ransom collection looks very good and it’s only their very first. Overall subtle and very solid, the entire collection comes in good quality, cuts and materials. We were especially excited about the jackets – there is an M-65 in three colorways, a nice corduroy stadium jacket in two colorways, the wax coat in three colorways and also some outstanding hoodies with waffle lining, subtle tonal hood embroidery and waterproof zippers. We were definitely impressed and cannot wait for it to be released. Also Canada shows how some good plaid shirts are made – everybody is doing them, but doing them well is less obvious then it seems. There is more to come – New Eras and denim will also be released, but more on that later on. The collection is planned to hit select stores in Europe starting September.
Check out a small preview of the key pieces that are gonna come. You will still be surprised at release with all the nice other colorways, cut & sew t-shirts and hoodies that will come.
Now, check after the jump for more.
