Well, we’re back from an awesome trip to NYC for Agenda and Capsule Trade Shows. We saw so many amazing things in the Big Apple that we are inspired from and ready to bring to Atlanta. Although we spent most of the days grinding out meetings at the trade shows, we also had some time to stop through all of the boutiques and other retailers in the city. We’ll be keeping you guys updated with the happenings of Wish on a more regular basis. Also, we’ll be posting live from Las Vegas in February as we head to MAGIC trade show. All we can say is, look forward to 2011… it’s going to be a big year for fashion and we want you to stay up on it first.
Follow the jump for some photos from the few days up north!
Balenciaga Showroom… hidden gem.
We spotted the Cookies & Cream: New York City truck cruising.
It seemed like almost everywhere we went in Manhattan, there was a really strong precense of people in uniform. You can’t help but be greatful just seeing it in person and knowing what these guys put themselves through everyday. Awesome.
Converse Store So-Ho. You may have seen pictures of this shop floating around the net…it does not do it justice. The wall is American Flag themed, but in All Converse All-Stars. Perfectly organized. Dope!
You’ve seen the pictures, but it’s nothing like actually being in Times Sqaure and looking up. Needless to say, we weren’t the only people taking pictures… cue lady with full-on Camera tripod buttom right.
On the way back from Laguaria Airport, we coincidentally happened to be waiting on our flight at the same gate they were installing iPads at every booth. The smarter-than-you tech guy gave us the whole run-down on the new iPad x Delta colab (lol) as he was installing it for us. You can order food straight from the iPad and the restaurant down the way will bring it straight to your seat while you wait…. another thing we can’t live without.
Also notable at Laguardia was the built-in USB plugs in the outlets….. another thing we can’t live without.
Well, we headed out of Hartsfield airport bright and early this morning on a flight straight for New York for the 2011 Agenda Show in Manhattan. The flight up was coooool… there was plenty of snow elsewhere across these united states. We spent a solid day hitting up some of the best retail shops and destination’s that the Big Apple has to offer:
They’ve got plenty of snow in NY….but they also have the trucks to clean it up…
You know we had to find a nice little spot to sit down and get some sustenance. We came across this chill little spot, “Cafe Mercato”. It’s a 24-hour buffett with everything you could possibly thing of. A dub well spent.
We’re staying in one of the dopest hotels in New York called Ace Hotel. Check it out.
Vintage fridge with overpriced beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholicfully stocked fridge.
They would provide us with the finest in hair care products… a day after I buzzed my hair off.
Hipster Hotel Keycard…check.
Hipster record player… check.
With a little bit of gold and a Blackberry…somewhere.
It was a dope day in the big city for sure… but, you know it’s all about progression!Straight back to the grind on the hotel wi-fi. See you tomorrow!
