Today was the first indication of what’s in store for us New Yorkers in a couple of weeks – rain and gushing winds. BLEAH. But then, on the other hand, I had an a-MAZ-ing day at CAPSULE! If I would classify all the tradeshows here in NYC, I would say that Capsule is the most avant-garde one of all. You get to see more exclusive and less run-of-the-mill brands. Hardly any of those famous mega brands and lots of Northern European, Australian and Asian brands. That means – for me, at least – I get to see a lot of “real” denim, pure and untreated, which is my greatest pleasure. But even the brands that showed prints and embroideries did it in a very tasteful way – nothing in any way overwhelming or at all hard on the eyes.

The biggest impression I had from this show was that there will be a lot of embroidery next summer. Most of it will be done in a more subtle way, like details or just maybe at the pockets or hems. And the same goes for the prints – no flowers, no gardens LOL! And no tie dyed – well, almost. The prints I saw there were more photographic prints and even some biblical-themed prints.

All in all, it was a very satisfying show and I left there thinking there is hope that all the curtain, cushion, carpet, and aluminum nailpolish prints are just a passing fad for this fall season!
