Trade shows are hotbeds of upcoming trends, but unless you're a designer, an editor, or a buyer, you probably never get to experience them. Today and tomorrow, contemporary show (capsule) is trying to change that with Donut Shop, a Meatpacking pop-up that's wide open to the public. The tagline: "Come fatten up on exquisite merch!"
(Capsule) specializes in indie brands, of-the-moment streetswear, and progressive style. You can get a sense of the aesthetic from a list of who's on the advisory board, which includes the owners of Oak, Pixie Market, and Court, not to mention Steven Alan. The pop-up, which is timed to coincide with the New York menswear show, features vintage from the likes of Kings County Salvage plus guy-oriented new clothing, stationery, and grooming items from brands like In God We Trust. It runs January 16 through January 17, from 10am to 7pm.
