Hands down, the best part of going to school when you were growing up was the field trips. They were a day long excuse not to do any real work and goof around with your buddies while pretending to learn about colonial America or how Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity. If you were lucky, your parent chaperone would throw down on some rad souvenirs like a rubber band gun because she was a Cool Mom™.
Joe and I were pretty lucky when we managed to snag press credentials to check out Liberty Fairs 04 in NYC last week. For those that don’t know, Liberty is a menswear trade show very similar to Capsule and Agenda. Both established and up-and-coming brands come together to exhibit their latest wares for national buyers and the media, giving a sneak peek at what products they’re launching in the next six months. Everyone who exhibited last week were showcasing their Spring/Summer ’15 lines, many of whom were really pushing forward the more casual, less-formal aesthetic that’s been crazy popular for the last year (Longline tees FOR DAYZ).
Zanerobe, Filson, WESC, Miansai, Treason Toting Co., Shwood Eyewear, and BLK DNM were among some of my favorite booths, but everyone brought some solid product to the show. See for yourself in the pictures above..
