CAPSULE SHOW, VEGAS FW16 – DIRECTOR’S CUT

by William Buckley

Always the most progressive of the men’s trade shows, Capsule is notable for its curation of brands that occupy that elusive space between the present and the prescient: enough of the present to be commercially successful, and enough prescience to maintain its position as an authority on where menswear is headed. Show director Chris Corrado is largely to thank, bringing names like Gloverall, Mark McNairy and Penfield into menswear’s common consciousness. Highlights from Vegas FW ’16 include:
