Trade show week is in full swing over by the piers in New York City, and Liberty Fairs is currently at the forefront of it all.

Featuring a wide range of collections from Spring/Summer 2018, Fall/Winter 2018 and even Spring/Summer 2019, the three-day event is always a go-to for Big Apple style seekers to get an early drop on the future of fashion retail. Besides, it never hurts to just check out some really fly gear for the day.

The Source was in the building for Day 1, so we definitely came across some of the illest streetwear heat and menswear essentials arriving later this year and at the top of 2019.

Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite brands we spotted at Liberty Fairs this year:


ARTISTIX

Spearheaded by two power players intersecting the worlds of fashion and art — Owner/Designer/Artist Greg Polisseni and Creative Director Andy Hilfiger — this set of gear focuses on colorful camo and a few artist collaborations that are literally etched into the seams.

Lucid FC

Bold and militant, Lucid FC plays with darker hues but knows a thing about adding pops of color. The yellow pieces seen throughout definitely stand out as the signature pieces.

WE. Society

Of all the brands at Liberty Fairs, none were representing that Black Power wave quite like We. Society. Not only do the pieces sync with a cool color palette but the footwear option isn’t too bad either.

Label & Lébal

This Brooklyn retailer is relatively new to the scene, but by the looks of the quality in their pieces you’d think they’ve been doing this forever. Great embroidery and even fresher design motifs makes this collection stand out for sure.

Lafayette

A trusted streetwear brand out of Japan for some time now, Lafayette came hard this season with a fresh set of skate-inspired essentials. The 90s-style color-blocking and wide array of graphic designs are A1 in both quality and steez.

MEG Company
(Yuketen + MONITALY + Epperson Mountaineering + Chamula)

The Cali-based fashion agency represents so many dope brands that we couldn’t just choose one. The color palette seen here is just amazing.

Champion Europe

Not exactly the Champion you know, but still the quality you love. The European sector of the brand experiments more with technical fabrics and styling in general, resulting in sportswear with an extra boost of freshness. The neon pieces alone are too fire.

RIDEAU

For the rockers out there, Rideau brings together the worlds of music and style for a collection that’s dark in nature but shines throughout in terms of actual quality and stitch work.
