Apparel and accessories trade show Capsule recently has taken a spin on incorporating politics into fashion. The New York men's trade show debuting in January will feature a new collection entitled Poli-Sci, that will be driven by the 2016 election results.
The trade show announced in an email that the collection was created with "politics, our future, and We the People in mind, driven by the 2016 election and its aftermath," as reported by Apparel News. The new line will include ten brands and will range from apparel and accessories. Poli-Sci will also only exclusively be available at the trade show, although later on the line could be offered by retailers, according to the publication.
Capsule, launched in 2007, started as a network of people who create and buy clothes that are driven by "a new vision of forward progress," according to the trade event's website. Known for its global curation of designers and brands, the trade shows will take place in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, and Paris showcasing both menswear and womenswear.
