When I am designing a new style wallet or collection I go back to photos I've taken on my travels. I'm not a big picture taker because I like to lose myself in the moment or in the case of Italy my hands are occupied with a towering cone of gelato. So on the rare occasion that I am clicking away it's usually to capture something that inspires my creativity or tickles my fancy. The doorknobs of Venice and Rome...
It was a beautiful snowy day in Manhattan. Set up my booth today for Capsule New York. I am so excited to be launching Haakinson V at the first Capsule Accessories Show. I will be spending the next three days at the show talking to fellow designers and showing the collection to buyers.
Though my official launch is a few weeks away I am happy to celebrate the Holidays with my first ever trunk show at M Clothing.
Starting my own line has been an incredible journey and though it hasn't always run smoothly it has been worth all the crazy highs and lows. I'm looking forward to an amazing year.
