Accessories Line Haerfest Walks Us Through Capsule Tradeshow

Capsule is a fashion and lifestyle trade event that showcases the best progressive brands and independent designers. Taking place twelve times a year in Paris, Vegas, Berlin and New York, it allows buyers to see a multitude of new collections all in one space.

For this week's event at Pier 36, the team at Haerfest (pronounced "Harvest") walked us through what a day at a trade show is like, from start to sunset cruise finish. Well known for its leather accessories, Haerfest has made a name for itself thanks to its sleek interpretation of the familiar (think ultra-thin wallets and backpacks trimmed in Fair Isle knits). Currently, you can find it at boutiques like UNIS, Goose Barnacle, Opening Ceremony, and more.
