Slideshow: 24 Things to Love at (capsule) New York


The two-day (capsule) New York Women's trade show kicks off tomorrow at Center 548, and as per usual, it'll host the kind of rad indie designers we can actually afford. Individual booths will be bursting with spring/summer 2011 collections from the likes of Billy Reid, Albertus Swanepoel, Dusen Dusen, Verameat, Osborn Design, Henrik Vibskov, Boxing Kitten, and so many others. Because the trade show is closed to the public (sorry, public), we asked 24 of the participating designers to pick their all-time favorite piece (okay — pieces; some designers cheated) from the S/S 2011 collections they'll be showcasing on the trade-show floor. Click ahead to see what everyone chose.
