Ending months of speculation, folks at BPMW, the hip New York PR, wholesale sales and brand consultation agency behind (capsule) New York and Paris and Compass, confirmed today the launch of a Las Vegas edition scheduled to run Feb. 18-19. The show is expected to showcase 45 directional menswear brands for the F/W 2009 season at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The (capsule) shows, all by-invite only events attended by premier retailers, stylists and members of the press, have been instrumental in reinvigorating the progressive sportswear brand segment in recent seasons.
