With ENK and MRket menswear shows kicking off this Sunday, the boys’ club interaction at Project last week is still fresh on show goers minds, perhaps best exemplified by Orlebar Brown collaborator and internet phenomenon Nick Wooster sitting down for a shave and a haircut at The Blind Barber’s booth during Tuesday’s afternoon activities.
Live blogging transpired at a group table in front, while martinis were shaken and probably also stirred at the Tanteo tequila bar in back. Project was full of real essentials for real guy shoppers. Made by Project capitalized on that with “The Essentials Kit,” the pop up concept of hand crafted artisanal brands featuring tailored stitching by Martin Greenfield, jacket re-proofing at Barbour’s waxing station, homebrew beer making by Bitter and Esters, cobbler-style hand sewing at Oak Street Bootmakers, onsite blocking by LES milliner Victor Osborne, garment dyeing at Metsa, and fragrance tailoring at D.S. & Durga.
