We're thrilled to introduce the new independent show for the Home & Gift market by Aesthetic Movement and the founders of Capsule. Presenting a curated roster of 100+ visionary brands and makers in an elevated boutique setting, SHOPPE OBJECT is the ultimate resource for premier merchants and influential editors.
With a firm belief that the New York home and gift market is long overdue for radical evolution, SHOPPE OBJECT seeks to reimagine what a trade event for our community can look and feel like. As the market season’s grand finale, and as a global epicenter of creative output, New York should offer a pared-down showcase of exactly who discerning retailers need to meet, and of what they need to see, know, and buy. A focus on elevated and synergistic collections of new product is key, and will be SHOPPE OBJECT’S signature. The SHOPPE OBJECT experience will highlight an intimate and curated environment with great food, wine, sounds, and cheer. SHOPPE OBJECT will offer brands and buyers an exciting new platform, custom-built for forging community, collaboration, opportunity, and new business. The show will take place August 11-13, 2018, 10am-7pm.
"After 20 years of never having missed a New York gift show, it has become increasingly clear that New York is in desperate need of a new show to service the changing demands of our community. SHOPPE OBJECT will provide a home for the best of the market, and our goal is to provide the freshest, most exciting assortment with an elevated, welcoming and intimate environment that promotes real connections, and offers a high level of service." - Co-founder, Jesse James, in WWD Magazine.
"We wanted to change the fashion industry's overall experience with Capsule in 2007 and we did. Now, after years of producing the event in three countries with no prior experience or partners, we know the pitfalls to avoid and how to successfully activate. We're really excited to be continuing on a journey of servicing independent brands, in a whole new market." - Co-founder, Deirdre Maloney, in WWD Magazine
Participants in the debut of SHOPPE OBJECT include industry standouts like MoMA, Hawkins New York, Chilewich, M. Quan, Fort Standard, Mud Australia, MINNA, Chen Chen & Kai Williams, Virginia Sin, Coral & Tusk, Farmhouse Pottery, Fredericks & Mae, Norden, Dusen Dusen, Yield, Alexandra Von Furstenburg, and many, many more.
About the space: Once home to the legendary H&H Bagels, this circa 1920s factory building has been remodeled and reborn as an event space fit to showcase New York’s finest wares. Two vast and open levels have been updated with pristine floors and state-of-the-art lighting and wifi, while still retaining elements of their original character and detail. Close proximity to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center just off of Manhattan’s West Side Highway makes Metropolitan West an ideal venue for the debut of SHOPPE OBJECT.
