NYC will always hold a big bunch of romance, chaos, tastiness, and inspiration for the whole world.  It is a space that is energized by the eclectic mix of creative, intellectual, and corporate, driven by determination and competition.

It is also the home to many of our friends and icons who inspire us in the Ponytail realm, like our buddy Eric Kvatek who you know so well.  In light of Inspiration NYC, a vintage trade show event that started out in LA, our friends Kiro Hirata and Eric show us a Kapital flavoured slice of apple pie that has so many of us captivated by its wonders.

Take it away boys!
