While showing the FW12 Men's Collection at Pitti Uomo last month in Florence, AR had the honor of being invited to participate in this season's Project Wooster in Las Vegas... We seized the opportunity and took the voyage into the dessert and the city of sin. The flight across the country was a little bumpy, but Prince's Purple Rain was on the TV, and that made it an easy flight. Arriving at the venue, my first thought was that the show was huge... Project Wooster was a small corner in a massive fair, but as we merchandised and the booth came together, we could tell how special of an environment it really was. When the doors opened to the public on Monday, Project Wooster was a magnet, drawing people in from all over the fair... During coffee breaks we would see people studying maps quite far away from the booth, mumbling the words Project Wooster like it was a mythical place. For us, it was a nice oasis of well curated goods and we were very happy to partake! Nick Wooster and the Project team did an amazing job, and we would like to thank them for the opportunity... Below are a few pictures that we snapped over the 3 days of the fair.
There was a lot of press surrounding Project Wooster, and as the storm of fashion week passes a lot more will see the light. For now check out the reports from On&Beyond, KRT, 2"Cuffs, HS , Raoul and Poggy. Here are a few more pics from our time in Vegas... We stayed in a PYRAMID!!!!
