Trekking through deserts, wading through rivers and scaling up mountains…the hikers at Juniper Ridge forage for plants, moss, wild herbs and tree bark to distill and capture the fragrance of the wilderness. Every fragrance is named after the region the plants were harvested: from the mountains in the Siskiyous to the deserts of Inyo County…each wild harvest produces its own unique scent palette due to variations in rainfall, temperature and humidity. The Californian based company is proudly the only one in the world extracting and creating 100% real, plant-based fragrances using pre-industrial perfume techniques.

The Garbstore team recently took a trip to New York for the Capsule trade show and to view the SS14 collections from Engineered Garments, Post, Gitman Vintage & Steven Alan. Capsule was set at Pier 36 Basketball City with a great view overlooking the Hudson River and Brooklyn Bridge. First call on arriving in NY was a visit to Cafe Habana on Prince St – the Garbstore team love their Mexican Style grilled corn. We also stopped by the new Han Kjobenhavn store. One of the highlights of our trip was the Engineered Garments party and the Gitman 5th anniversary at the Elizabeth Street Gallery Garden, surrounded by interesting antique pieces and vintage Holland & Sherry posters, where we sipped on mexican beers and got to view the SS14 Gitman offerings.
A highlight in the Garbstore calendar is Capsule Paris for Summer season. Three fun days were spent in Les Docks building Cite de la mode, showcasing our ‘Indoor Cavalry’ SS14 collection. Vintage aztec and tropical prints, raw Indigo Farm denim and our Reebok collaboration were well received. We were carefully positioned close by to our old friends at Lightning Bolt and North Sea Clothing. By night, Jameson cocktails, Coronas’ and a great DJ were enjoyed courtesy of Capsule on Les Docks roof top terrace. All things Parisian were devoured on the trip, including steak, red wine, crepes and macaroons. We even managed to squeeze in time for a shop and visited Merci one of the best merchandised store in Paris. See you next season Capsule!
Garbstore offer you an initial glimpse at the upcoming Autmn/Winter 2013 collection. Taking influence from 1960′s and 70′s UK prison uniforms we have highlighted some of the key pieces from the range, which is aptly titled “His Majesty’s Pleasure”. Alongside classic Garbstore staples like the Map pocket shirt, Civilian Service Chino and Parka come new introductions such as the HMP prison Jacket (originally made by prisoners themselves), the UK prison Blouson Shirt and Prison Sweats with the names of different historic British prisons printed on the reverse.
The collection arrives in the coming weeks, stay tuned for more info.
