With a variety of men’s apparel shows as well as separate footwear and golf-themed events, retailers ran themselves ragged in Las Vegas this week searching out the latest items to freshen their floors for spring. MAGIC Market Week, which encompasses MAGIC Men’s, Project, MVMNT and Pool as well as the elevated — and well-received — Tents@Project, was joined this time by a consortium of competing shows under the umbrella name of Modern Assembly. This included the Vegas debut of Liberty and Agenda, as well as MRket and Capsule. The PGA Show jumped on the bandwagon by holding its spring market alongside the Modern Assembly grouping. Although merchants felt overwhelmed by the number of shows, the size and scope of what was available provided a comprehensive overview of the men’s market and plenty of opportunity to find unique brands to differentiate their floors next year. Here, some of the highlights from the shows. RELATED STORY: Updated Product Drives Buying in Vegas >>
