Pool Fashion Trade Show kicked-off a special event June 7th called “Concept to Creation” which in many ways indicates their new direction of focusing on fashion design and the designers themselves rather than just art and fashion. With invites featuring designer sketches, rulers, swatches, and pantone color flip books, you can see how the transition is making a special emphasis on the designers behind the brands that will be a part of their upcoming trade show August 26-28 in Las Vegas.
3sixteen Tops the Charts as a Brand That Transcends”Streetwear” Through Quality, Timeless Designs, Attention to Construction
When we first met up with the 3sixteen guys, Johan out of LA, Andrew out of New York, and designer Jeff Hamada at their booth deep in MAGIC’s South Hall area last season, it was a little strange that they were there. For one thing, the 3sixteen collection looked as though it could transcend into, as Bread & Butter Barcelona would put it, “Urban Superior” rather than amidst the usual street fashion fare. Beautifully cut outerwear jackets in textured wool, flannel tapered tops, clean denim, and T-shirt graphics representing inspiration from a variety of sources, including religious references, were attention-grabbing and seemed a step-up and out of where streetwear currently stands today.
