Last week saw the premier edition of the (capsule) tradeshow in Berlin. Some of you may know that our parent company worked for (capsule) to produce the event so bear in mind that my report is by all means totally biased. At least I’m honest when it comes to that. After 4 or 5 months of hard work, mostly on behalf of Nina and Daniel, it was fantastic to see all the pieces come together and result in a great show. We had a great line up of brands, including 18Waits, Be Positive, Clae, Eat Dust, Folk, Garbstore, Freshjive, Lightning Bolt, Maiden Noir, Maharishi, Mark McNairy, Norse Projects, Tellason, WoodWood, Pigalle and Shades of Grey, just to name a few.
What made (capsule) Berlin so special was the great communal vibe- there was a real sense of adventure and community, mixed with positive vibes and business that I hadn’t experienced at a trade show in sometime. Everyone came together and it is important to note, that aside from our hard work, it was out exhibitors and visitors that made it so much fun. So here is a big thank you to all of you-
To wrap up the show, we partnered with Nike Stadium and Firmament, and we held a great community BBQ at the Based in Berlin location. A perfect end to a great week. All the party photos are from the Firmament Blog, which you can see here. I don’t know who took the photos, so I can’t credit anyone. Let me know if you know, so I can rectify.
Our buddy Marcel from Hamburg came along to document our first show, so all the pictures from the show are from him. Check out his incredible work here.
Thanks again to everyone that came along for the ride, for your support and willingness to join us. We’re stoked on our next show in January already. Catch you there.
Steven & everyone here at Black Lodges.
