Rendez-Vous, That's Who

After all these years, Paris-based Rendez-Vous has stayed true to its mission—to promote quality over quantity—and in the process redefined that crusty old term "tradeshow."

That's why we at Hint are proud to be the media sponsor of its New York debut during Fashion Week, showcasing over 70 our fave men's and women's lines from the U.S. and abroad: Henrik Vibskov, Rogan, Christian Wijnants, Nice Collective, April 77, Surface to Air and special guest Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. Also on display will be an exhibit by photographer Martine Mulder. More info to come, stay tuned.

Rendez-Vous, the Altman Building, 138 W. 18th St., Feb 20-22, 10:30 am - 7:30 pm

Hint Tip: Surface to Air

Monday, April 7, 2008

Your very first look at Surface to Air's collaborative new leather jacket, conceived and designed by Justice, a band with a serious leather fetish. In fact, it's their trademark. Only 450 pieces were made across three styles, so don't say we didn't warn you...

São Paulo Fashion Week: Isabela Capeto

Isabela Capeto is a Rio-based designer, but made the most of São Paulo Fashion Week by installing her fall collection on twirling mannequins in her São Paulo store. Isabela has a uniquely Brazilian aesthetic—a sweetly naive and kind of nutty one at that—with pulsing bright colors and handmade prints, but never in an over-the-top Carmen Miranda way. For fall, as if she needed to get any bigger in Japan, Isabela says she was inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo, hence the jumble of cityscape prints, kimono-esque shapes, funky jewelry and pink wigs (what is it with the Japanese and colored hair?). In addition to Rio and São Paulo, you can find her irresistibly cute wares in Barneys in Japan, Browns in London and Colette in Paris. Be sure to check out her new perfume in a bottle designed by Surface to Air, a three-dimensional version of her flared-skirt logo.
