Capsule Show Los Angeles is a collection of emerging fashion trends, beauty finds, and lifestyle products. TransWorld Business headed up to California Market Center in DTLA to check out all the newest trends in the women’s market, and the key brands that caught our eye.

In addition to moving Capsule to LA for the first time, the show has also launched an LA-based pop-up shop, Capsule Beach, featuring several notable brands in the surf space worth  browsing.

One interesting aspect of Capsule is Axis, a segment within the show that highlights action sports, lifestyle, and athleisure brands. Many of the offerings that caught our eye were positioned within Axis.

Taking inspiration from the 80s and 90s, Cami And Jax have several suits that are reminiscent of the Bay Watch era, with high cut sides, low cut backs and intricate detailing that make the suits unique.

NUX

Nux activewear has a compression technology that actually helps with performance. Triple T Stretch pulls moisture away from skin, and the more washes the pant goes through, the softer it gets.

We loved the vibe from San Diego based company Happy Spritz. Their mantra is to make essential oils more approachable and simplified for those who may find them intimidating and overwhelming. Job well done, crew!

Boy Smells

dsc04765

The concept behind Boy Smells, founded by partners Mathew Herman and David Kien, is that scents transcend gender—just think of how one perfume or cologne smells drastically different from one person to another. Herman says it was this thought that led the two to start Boy Smells.

The aesthetically appealing Boy Smells booth was attracting attention all day at the show, specifically with several of its unique scents like Ash and Kush.
