Last week, Archival dropped in on the Monday eve pop-up shop and Kenzo Minami gallery opening at Nepenthes, one of our favorite NYC shops. Nepenthes was so packed that we were capsule released into the space in timed intervals. In line, we bumped into a number of fellow Market Week participants who had also come to demonstrate their Engineered Garments brand fandom. Here are a few snaps from the event and our follow up shopping expedition.
For interested parties, here are a few snap views of some new Filson garments for women (all returned back to the factory). As anticipated, none of the garments quite fit my circus monkey form (stumpy arms, stocky center, shortened torso, etc). For the most part, the garments were quite well made but exhibited strange design details/decisions: namely, one-way rather than two-way zippers, weird feminine shaping panels (not pictured) and overall, oddly boxy fit (even in a size small).
