The team at Garbstore recently went on a buying trip to New York. After showing at Capsule, we had a look at the AW14 collections from American and Japanese brands such as Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments and Post O’alls. We endured a snow storm or two but took refuge in the warmth and comfort of Freemans, Cafe Habana and Kinfolk Magazine’s party.

Highlights from the Winter Sale by Garbstore’s Shop Staff.

Daniel wears Pea Jacket by Engineered Garments x Faribault Woolen Mill Co.  Always a favourite with our customers, Daiki Suzuki’s New York based Engineered Garments has teamed up with Faribault Woolen Mill, an American heritage company known for their woollen blanket production since 1865. Faribault has always been known for its high quality wool, even supplying the US army with blankets through both World Wars. Engineered Garments have created the Salmon People textile in collaboration with Faribault and applied it to their Shawl Collar Pea Jacket.

Daniel wears Wool Camp Shirt by Axs Folk Technology Founded by designer of Farm Tactics, Kyle Ng brings us Axs Folk Technology – fusing mountaineering technical gear with typical Western folk. Inspired by commune life in California in the 1960s and the craftsmanship of the past, Ng constructs wearable, functional pieces for modern life. This heavyweight wool shirt is available in orange and marine blue, with a single taped open chest pocket.

Daniel wears Ambleside Parka by The Garbstore. This season’s take on Garbstore’s parka employs a special shibaya printed sateen pigment print textile from a Japanese mill. With a separate detachable inner hood, six pockets, and heavy wool lining, the Ambleside Parka is functional and most importantly warm enough to see you through the rest of the winter. Read more

Based in a garage on the western fringes of San Francisco, George Rocha handcrafts each Iris Skateboard from unusable boards that would otherwise have become landfill. By stacking and gluing 20 old boards, Rocha then carves a new cruiser board from the layered decks. Inspired by the work of Japanese artist and skater Haroshi, who produces figurative sculptures entirely out of skateboards, Rocha made his first layered art piece from his own used decks.

Available from Garbstore Case Study, 603 N. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, California

Giant colouring maps of Paris, placemats and DIY paper costumes in the signature OMY style provide endless opportunities for experimentation and creativity.  All materials are chosen for their quality and respect for the environment, highlighting the brands underlying ethical message.

Last Sunday we transformed the shop into an animal kingdom and hosted our first Puppet Party. We were kept entertained by talented puppeteer Raven Kaliana, and Origami artist Yoshika Kobayashi was on hand for those who wanted to make their own paper animals . We were really impressed by some of the creations – a big thank you to everyone for coming and making it a huge success!
