The Bearded Man Speaks 2013 & 2014 from Italy: As I sit here in Florence, Italy after a full and very productive day at Pitti Uomo I decided to gather my thoughts about what 2013 meant to us and what we have planned for 2014. We continue to expand on the relationships that got us this far with a smile on our face and build on some new ones. Highlights for us in one breath are as follows:
Our partnership with PF Flyers, which lead to our successful launch of the PF FLYERS POP SHOP TOUR in 2013. We are happy to report that the tour will continue in 2014 and stop in a town near you. We kicked off the tour in New York, followed by a great stop in Houston, followed with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
Freedom Hall @ Liberty Fairs: When Sam Ben-Avraham & Sharifa Murdock launched their new show with the help of merchandising partner Stephanie Sealy, they called us about bringing our BKc Hundred Year touch to the show. We quickly gathered our thoughts, made some international calls and created Freedom Hall. A show within the show highlighting some very special talent in the fashion industry across the globe. Months later after two very talked about shows, we are still on board to bring you another great installment of our partnership with Liberty Fairs through Freedom Hall and more.
Art Comes First: To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment-Ralph Waldo Emerson. We travelled the world and found these talented tailors who were on the same path as us, but in a totally different part of the world. In comes Art Comes First, the duo of Sam Lambert & Shaka Maidoh. This collaboration was certainly a highlight of 2013 with installations at Freedom Hall @ Liberty Fairs and a trip to South Africa with our local partners Street Etiquette who are also part of our #globalvillage coalition. We are back for another year, kicking it off with a trip to Pitti Uomo 85, Another Black Ivy collection with Josh & Trav of Street Etiquette, another round of Freedom Hall the week of January 21-23 in NYc, Vegas February 17-19, Japan in April, Morocco, South Africa and more….
