WEDNESDAY ARE WORKING WITH JOHN VARVATOS
John Varvatos started his eponymous fashion house in 1999, debuting his first collection at the end of 2000 which consisted of tailored menswear. The brand now represents an entire lifestyle that includes belts, handbags, footwear, eyewear, limited edition watches and fragrances.
Varvatos credits his early obsession with rock ‘n roll as the catalyst for his interest in fashion; a unifying theme in his design, it is also deeply ingrained in all aspects of the brand. Ad campaigns for the brand have featured such legendary Rock icons as Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Velvet Revolver and most recently, Paul Weller & Miles Kane. The collection is currently distributed in all freestanding John Varvatos boutiques including the 315 Bowery boutique in the space that formerly housed the seminal underground music club CBGB.
He first received accolades from the CFDA in 2000 when he was honored with the Perry Ellis Award for Menswear, compounded the following year by winning the 2001 CFDA Designer of the Year award and CFDA’s Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2005.
The new site will launch early 2013.
