#5 (capsule) New York

Brands, in order to gain exposure and find new stockists regularly attend tradeshows.

One of the best in the United States when it comes to clothing and accessories is (capsule).

There are also (capsule) tradeshows in Las Vegas, Berlin and Paris, which I will review later.

As I am not part of this industry (yet), and I do not live in NYC, the only way for people like me to get an insight of what’s going on in the business is to review each of the brands thanks to their websites (when they have one).

Of course, being able to see everything in a single place, talk to the designers, touch the products would be way better, but, hey, you have to do with the means at hand.

Here are my ten favorites, in no particular order.

#4 Made in the USA Vol. 1

Hey all!

I present you today with some great products made in the USA.

Indeed, we all know about the famous brands that built the United States reputation when it comes to clothing and accessories such as Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, DKNY, J Crew etc.

But what about the lesser known, the ones that rarely grace, if ever, the pages of our magazines?

Well, they exist, and they are very good.

I made a selection of clothes and accessories Made in the USA.

Hope you like it, and tell me if you know other!

#3 Fantasy shoe closet

I think we all have materialistic fantasies (no, you’re not above the masses).

As far as I’m concerned, shoes are a great part of them.

Check this selection out and tell me what your fantasy shoe closet looks like.
