To enter into the wild world of Kapital is a little like stepping into a twisted wonderland, one that has its own gravitational force that has you walking upwards, backwards, inside, and outwards. Let us take you into the friend making, beer soaked experience that is the Kapital catalogue shoot, one that never disappoints and one that takes us to the famous and forgotten corners of the earth.
Get to know Nigel Cabourn Woman designer Emilie Casiez, the newest addition to the family and an unbreakable Parisian who has her eyes wide open to the wonders of our sensory Universe, past and present.
We all know that unless we’ve managed to grow a money tree in the backyard, the investment shoe should be something that speaks to newness, while balanced with the timelessness of familiarity.
Lets talk about the new Kapital Spring Summer 16 collection, "Denim Perth, Land Loves Indigo", an Australian story about the land and the sun. It’s a celebration of strangeness, and about a community of people who take life by the blue tongue’s tail.
So what about Bangkok makes it such a hungry breeding ground for a retailer like Beams, that promotes individuality and a more inconspicuous idea of luxury in a shopping landscape saturated by opulence? Explore the curious concept with us as we watch a culture of individuality and the art of ’being’ blossom around Asia. Welcome to Bangkok Beams (again) !..
As a not-so-well-known destination on the vintage route in Tokyo, Mel Antique deserves every bit of recognition for its exquisite collection of French cotton and linen, ranging from 1830 to 1950. Owner Takatoshi Tanaka is no understatement to the term ’passionate’, and his spirit is rooted in France where he spends long digging trips around the countryside - looking for these incredible pieces from old barn houses and warehouses.
We collaborated with Aussie object designers Lyn Balzer and Tony Perkins [ 2 by Lyn and Tony ] to produce a jewellery collection...
We found some of our favourite shapes from our vintage archives surface for Sessun Spring Summer 16, and it perfectly sums up how a salty lady should have these staple pieces for their own, old or new.
We just want to say that Matthew Dolan’s work made our week in New York. As he did with his first collection, (that we must have raved on about a minute ago) workwear was given a new form. His poetic approach to creation and construction, was spun into thread and woven into realness, was alliterative and continuative, which sets a steady pace for the future of his label. This collection felt a little more consumable, which was a smart move. We like smarty pants who think about these things, it hints a little about what we can imagine the creativity taking us.
Some super exciting news for the w’menswear department came this week, when we found out our pals Battenwear are making small sizes of their great outdoorwear for women! That’s why we decided to go camping in their NYC studio, in the name of FUNNEST GARMENTS POSSIBLE
Presenting some really great French labels that have grabbed our attention this season that we shot and styled for Vogue this week. It’s a mix up of newness and our best vintage military modelled by Sofia Jergner Ekervik and Andrea Solstad who radiate rad-ness.
Sweden. The place that Ponytail readers would want to visit before they die, and the sort of epic destination one would choose to shoot a Fall/Winter catalogue, which is of course what our friends at Kapital rightly did this season. This time, the elements of greatness like clothes that reek of badassery and a cast and crew who all stand up as rad people in their own right. This book is to be released tomorrow and marks photographer Eric Kvatek’s 33rd book shot for the ultimate denim nerd’s psychedelic dreamland.
