PROJECT Wooster Fall/Winter 2012 Video Preview

PROJECT Wooster Fall/Winter 2012 Video Preview Las Vegas

With PROJECT and Nick Wooster reconnecting next week for the second season of PROJECT Wooster in Las Vegas, we’ve got a preview video highlighting the collaborative effort and seeing what direction Mr. Wooster is going to take the initiative this time around. Nick and PROJECT president Andrew Pollard took a trip to Japan to see how American heritage is being perceived there. Look for this to be the focus of this season’s PROJECT Wooster with brands like Visvim, Monitaly, Kapital, Nepenthes, United Arrows, and a few others on display. “Regardless of what you’ve seen in Florence, Milan, Paris, or New York, there will be some surprises. And I’m excited for several new collaborations with brands that I really respect.”

PROJECT Vegas hits Mandalay Bay from February 13th to February 15th. Preview video can be found below. (via GQ Eye)

Sir & Madame Fall/Winter 2012 at Project NY

All signs point to 2012 being a big year for men’s bags and Sir & Madame are looking to turn the heat up with their Fall/Winter collection. Run by husband and wife team Autumn and Brian Merritt, the Chicago based store carries their own in-house brand as well as others. Sir & Madame’s bags and accessories blur the line between refined and rugged. Made in the USA, the collection is comprised of a mixture of weekend bags, totes, ruck sacks, key chains, and their iClutch iPad case. All of the pieces are made from Horween leather and canvas and denim sourced from LA. This Fall, we’ll see the launch of a buttery soft leather weekender.

At this week’s Project show, we had the opportunity to check out Triple Aught Design in person for the first time. The San Francisco-based high performance apparel and equipment company makes gear that’s built to withstand the most rugged use cases, from special operations forces to wilderness exploration and conservation to adventure travel. Some of the pieces take inspiration from pieces used by international armed forces for decades and deliver them in updated, more versatile fabrics but keep all of the fine details the original pieces featured.

PROJECT LV | Tovar Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

We’re really excited to be able to present to you all some highlight pieces from Tovar, a brand that we came for the first time at this week’s PROJECT Show in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles-based label is launching in Spring 2012 and their product is really exceptional. There’s balanced mix of simplicity, functionality and wearability. The shirting fabrics are really soft and lightweight so they’re perfect for the warmer months while the outerwear pieces are so versatile in both form and color that they have no barrier when it comes to season.

CREEP by Hiroshi Awai is one of the industry’s most consistent labels. We’ve covered it numerous times over the past few seasons and think Mr. Awai is doing an exceptional job with the label. The designs are creative yet still very wearable and the fit is just right. For Spring 2012, we worked with CREEP to put together a look at this week’s PROJECT show. The result was tremendous — Floral print blazer with a lightweight button down in an orange shell along with white linen pants. Look for more shots from the Toronto-based designer’s Spring 2012 in the near future.

We’ve been seeing some standout product here at PROJECT and one of the most consistent brands as of late happens to be CXXVI. They’ve really come a long way from selling just t-shirts and now house a stable of solid offerings. This burlap tote really stood out to us so we had to capture it in all its glory. It’s lined with chambray and features leather handles. In the above shot, you even get a glimpse of the brands neckwear and shirting for S/S 2012.
