SOSA booty shorts – fun!

A beautiful day in NYC.  Drove down from Vermont and got parking right across the street from Capsule.  Met wonderful designers such as Sam Brunson from SOSA with her outrageous chunky hand knit alpaca Booty Shorts, Geoff Poon of Amenpapa, a quirky clothing concept with spirit and soul, and Leah D’Ambrosio’s creative Phili made knits at wol hide.

Lots of great inspirations and such imaginative ways of working with alpaca. I did not see anyone working with the small, fingerling weight alpaca that we use for our intricate, stitch by stitch construction, bright designs and fun patterns.  Can’t wait to get that out to everyone real soon!

Also met Natalie from JUST.  This is a great project that lets shoppers know where their clothes are coming from and what the brand’s social, environmental and economic impact is.
