Products are a reflection of the culture they are created in and one of the best parts of travelling is being able to bring home items from diverse foreign cultures. Tiger Beer was Singapore’s first locally brewed beer and they have brought some great products from across Asia together for a special New York pop-up store. Tiger Beer has turned the storefront of 343 Canal St. into Tiger Trading Co; a carefully curated pop-up with over 800 items that span design, fashion, artwork, and technology. The items include rare products from labels including Opening Ceremony, Undercover, Neighborhood, Head Porter and Snow Peak. The items originate from countries including China, Vietnam and South Korea. The best part about the experience is that visitors can take home something from the store absolutely free.
Noah just opened it’s first flagship location at 195 Mulberry Street in New York. The former Supreme creative director has made a quick impact with the line of elevated streetwear staples. The lookbook showcases some of the items from the Fall/Winter items from hoodies and flannels and blazers to coats. For those looking to shop online, you can find available items on the official online store.
By H is a New York based label which begun in 2013. The line makes subtle minimal clothes in neutral color palettes (read mostly black). Common details on the garments include raw edges, double zippers and asymmetrical hems. The latest lookbook from the brand highlights key staples including hoodies, bombers, tees, shorts and sweatpants. The clothing can be purchased directly on their webstore with pricing that ranges around $100-400.

“A Period of Juvenile Prosperity depicts the gritty youth subculture of freight train hoppers and squatters. From 2004 – 2009, Brodie created a prolific body of work which introduces viewers to an alternative lifestyle based on the constant movement of train travel across America. The gallery will present 30 photographs from Brodie’s series.”

Consider this post a B-side of photos I finally got around to posting from New York Fashion Week. The most promising take-away from it for me was that there are still many new ideas and approaches to fashion here in New York City. It’s easy to get caught up in the media coverage of what’s hot, but when you dig a little deeper there’s a whole wealth of designers who are creating something wonderful and unique just under the surface.

If you live in New York you will definitely see famous people regularly but its truly rare to see a Victoria Secret Supermodel in the flesh and one of my all time-favorites at that. Ladies and gentlemen, Alessandra Ambrosio was at Milk Studios and so was I. Thank You Based God. Enjoy the eye candy.
