Understudy Hors De Combat Launch/ ARTwear 2012/ Brett Wilson's Redefining Success

Hors De Combat Launches at Understudy YYC
So much to update on (three things tonight), but so little time. There are a few things I need to take care of in my science part of life. I will be away and heading to a cancer research conference in the next couple days after tomorrow, where I'll be presenting my current research finding!! (I know super exciting!) It's going to be good science, food & booze kinda trip, and great chance to pick brains of other scientists :). Meanwhile, a little preview of what's happening soon. YYC men's fashion boutique Understudy is launching a new men's street style label called Hors De Combat this SaturdayHors De Combat, which literally translates to "outside the fight", is a combination of minimalistic deisgn and military inspired apparel, aiming for unique styles and functionality. The collection is 100% Calgary design and production. More info to come as I will be attending their launch event that night. For now, here is a little sneak peak of the collection.
