Word on the street is that this week’s Agenda Tradeshow in Long Beach, CA got hazed by a few local police. So we guess it’s only fitting for the homie and fellow instigator, Mike Giant, to show up in LAPD gear and a Rebel 8 bombed-out squad car.
Even though this winter has only just begun, the fashion industry is already looking towards next winter. In a few weeks it’ll be market week here in NYC and tons of designers will descend upon the city to showcase their collections for Fall/Winter 2014. This year, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating in The Blogger Project to bring you all the coverage you need from the PROJECT trade shows in NYC and Vegas.
If you’re unfamiliar with PROJECT, it’s a tradeshow where brands and designers exhibit their products to buyers in the retail and fashion industry. Buy attending you basically get a sneak peek at what’s to come when it comes to the next year’s freshest trends. It’s no secret that I have a weakness (well more like an addiction) to shoes, so I for one am especially excited to check out Project Sole NYC - a specially designated area of the trade show for showcasing men’s footwear brands.
I’m really excited to give you guys a first look at what’ll be coming out next winter. I’ll be showcasing my favorite brands and products as the show gets underway so stay tuned for all the photos here on the blog and on my Instagram @oh_anthonio.
Went to Bright XVIII yesterday. Bright is a bi-annual Skateboarding Tradeshow here in Berlin. This is my third Bright and although I didn’t love the new venue, the location in Berlin was way more convenient, and as always, there was some rad stuff on show!
Here’s a company I was really excited to discover. Based in Minnesota, Greenwich Vintage is a company that will resole and restore your footwear. With options for colored soles and stacking soles, you can give new life to your favorite pair of old shoes. Everything is handcrafted in the USA and the turn around time is about 2-4 weeks. Check out the pics above to see how the custom sole is molded as well as some of their finished products. Can’t wait to try this out on some of my own shoes.
