Where the runway meets the street

The (capsule) trade show really is a rolling fashion circus – but without the clowns. Each season, the crew goes on a menswear tour, taking in Berlin, Paris, New York and Las Vegas. Countless brands showcase their upcoming seasons and, besides placing orders, it’s a great place to meet new friends, discover interesting brands and examine amazing product. Last week, when the road show hit New York’s Basketball City on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, photographer Jerry Buttles and ex-Saint Laurent model Beau Buckley braved the cold winds and heavy snow to shoot a few of the (capsule) highlights.

Shooting Beau in the nearby projects and down by the East River overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge, we managed to incorporate some of the finer threads we found on display. The Fall/Winter 2014 season, judging by the (capsule) brands, is defined by great texture and a subtle color palette. At least those were the pieces we went for, mixing everything from NEIGHBORHOOD, Soulland and Woolrich Woolen Mills to Baartmans and Siegel, Tourne de Transmission and CASH CA. Other highlights included Norse Projects, Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen, Universal Works and Mark McNairy, to name a few.
