Road to (capsule) is a Por Homme exclusive, made possible by the good folks behind the (capsule) tradeshow, and of course, the person(s) being interviewed. We ask each designer five questions that help to give us — as fans, readers, observers, whatever — a better understanding of what makes these gifted individuals tick. The questions are fairly uniform, but as you’ll see, the answers are far from that. The (capsule) show invades New York July 19th and 20th, giving viewers first looks at Spring/Summer 2011 collections from the industry’s most reputable men’s labels.
We kick off Road to (capsule) with a sit down with Jeff Staple, the Founder and Creative Director of Staple Design and Reed Space (among a host of other things). Beyond being one of New York’s most-gifted individuals, Jeff’s also a class act and one of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet. Well let’s get to it, shall we? Hit the jump. (more…)
From Jeff Staple and Co. comes a look at the label’s STPL collection for the Spring 2011 season. We’ve been following Staple Design‘s work for quite sometime and have yet to be disappointed by one of New York’s finest. The creativity and dedication that’s put into crafting each piece is incomparable. Plus, Jeff’s twitter and blogging skills are well-tuned. There’s much to learn from the man so we suggest giving him a follow @jeffstaple.
