Style Sightings: Capsule Women’s Show SS15

Fashion Week may have jetted off to London last Friday en masse, but there were still style and fashion shows to be seen around the city. Take this past weekend’s Capsule Show down at Basketball City. Love handmade, handcrafted, environmentally-sourced and beautiful things? Check, check, check and CHECK! It was all to be found down off South Street. This season marks the last for Capsule at its Lower East Side location, where it has been based since 2007. Next time, find Capsule on West 22nd Street — Center 548, the former home of the DIA Center — a venue that may be a bit easier to get to during trade show time.

Meanwhile, I’m glad I trekked down this past Saturday in the rain! Take a look at some of the lovely stand-out pieces from the Spring/Summer 2015 clothing collections of Loup Charmant, Milena Silvano, Nancy Stella Soto, Voz and Delphine, as well as sandals and bags from Waltzing Matilda and Proud Mary, jewelry from Kria and Deborah Rice, among others:

Loup Charmant

New details and accessories that includes a collaboration with Artemas Quibble graced Loup Charmant’s ever-growing loveliness

Nancy Stella SotoCut outs, organza and layers were enticing elements at Nancy Stella Soto

Milena Silvano
