CASH CA

When you mix top-notch British manufacturing know-how with impeccable Japanese attention to detail and design, the result can only be totally awesome. CASH CA has been a leading name in fashion for high-end British manufactured cashmere and knitwear since its launch in 1999. In 2010, the brand signed popular Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi to direct the brand’s men’s collection. Known for his minimalist and simple designs, close attention to silhouette, comfort and materials that were signatures of his work at Adidas, Kuraishi’s menswear for the brand features beautifully made menswear staples, including a traditional field jacket with modern details, a luxurious cotton pile short sleeve Henley featuring a subtle contrast neckband and dozens of interpretations of the basic sweatshirt. Don’t miss Cash Ca at Capsule Paris.

 

Customellow

 

CUSTOMELLOW

There’s been some remarkable menswear coming out of Korea recently and one of the best collections we’ve seen is Customellow. The brand is known for its blend of Western garment design and Eastern experimentation. Offering traditional menswear styles reinterpreted through an avant-garde, creative filter, (think slim floral trousers worn with a well-cut jacket and narrow tie) Customellow delivers men a thoroughly modern expression of style. Each piece pushes the envelope, taking familiar items and infusing them with functionality and modernideas. See Customellow’s fresh take on menswear at Capsule Paris.

 

NORSE PROJECTS Norse Projects

The team behind Danish menswear label Norse Projects prefers to fly under the radar, yet the brand’s reputation as one of the best menswear collections coming out of Copenhagen is on the rise. Offering a full menswear collection of shirts, tees, pants, shorts accessories and outerwear, as well as a collaboration with Denmark’s revered raincoat maker, Elka, Norse Projects re-considers menswear staples and offers designs with subtle innovation, making each piece a modern classic. Well thought out, well-executed Scandinavian design is a key element in every piece. See what Norse Projects will propose for SS14 at Capsule Paris.

 

 

S&H

 

S&H ATHLETICS

We are thrilled to host the launch of S&H Athletics—the new vintage athletics-inspired collection created by Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos – the team behind the Shipley & Halmos brand. With a nod to classic sporting attire from the 1950’s and 1960’s, S&H Athletics gives customers a fresh take on vintage-inspired staples. The 25 piece collection of tees, hoodies, and fleece maintains some of the fun we’ve grown to expect from Shipley and Halmos – every garment will get one of eight different garment labels, each with a unique sports reference, sewn into the collection at random. Score a first look at Capsule Paris, New York and Las Vegas.
