This morning Greg & I set off on our Biannual trip to Asia to deal with production, distribution and all sorts of other upcoming projects with our friends in the East. We leave with our baby in the hands of all of our employees to look after for 2 weeks while we finalize details for Spring 2009. And what exactly does 2009 hold? Well I’ll be frank… those of you waiting for a Banana Streetpublic version of Mishka, are going to have a long wait. I know the trend everyone is desperately steering their ship towards is being simple, basic, or to put it into more marketable terms, “grown up“. And while that’s all fine and good, we’re not simple, nor basic… never have been and probably never will be. And while I’ll concede to the fact that we’ve definitely grown up in the almost 5 years of existence, our aim was and still is to never grow old… something we hope is resonates with every Mishka fan. Simple & basic is for the Gap, Uniqlo and Banana Republic. We’ve always been about graphics, color, design and most importantly providing an alternative! And 2009 will really be no different… well probably a whole bunch different, but you get the picture. Just don’t oxford dress shirts, tan rain coats, plain V-necks and earth tones from us.
We’re pretty awful bloggers when it come to keeping track of our daily exploits, especially on the many trips we take each year. We’ll try our best to do a better job than we have done in the past on keeping you posted on our daily/nightly excursions and anything else of interest we may find along the way!
Off we go…- My Pal the Crook
