Project Show New York City July 21st 2008 – Two hot new labels – Vernum and Adam Spagnolo
Project show is the clothing show for small to medium sized lines. For this year like the others is held at the Javits Center. Check out the impressive architectural accomplishment at the entrance.
According to my Dom Rebel boys, there’s 10 times more traffic at the Las Vegas Project Show. But you got to stay true to your roots (Project started in NYC) plus for Dom Rebel they signed a couple of big accounts. Some buyers don’t head to the Las Vegas show. For my boy Yuichi who’s the west coast rep for Goldspun it was a quiet day, for him not his brand.
Here are two hot brands I like. These are classic cut and sew. Being in the graphic tee business graphics printing don’t really awe me. It’s like a magician watching another magician. But cut and sew to me is like a magician watching a scientist. It’s totally magical to me. “Verum strives to be an honest expression, and all the while maintaining an accurate representation.” A mens and womens line started by Johnny Quach and Khue Trinh met while working for other streetwear brands. They have worked at such brands as Roxy, Quick Silver, and Tarina Tarantino.
This simplicity and honesty really shows through in their designs. Their style is contemporary, timeless, clean, and hidden. Hidden in the sense that you will find small details and craftsmanship you only find when masters really pay attention to their art. What I like is the simplicity of the pieces with the strong geometric shapes. As you can see from this mens sweater the simple shape that crosses the chest and goes deep. For the women this wraps all the way around nicely slim fitting and shimmers with a nice deep blue satin.
