John Varvatos is an American Mens Designer Icon. His rock and roll influence is a clear manifestation of who he is, and where he pulls his inspiration from. JV captures that feeling, that raw emotion, that visceral experience and transforms it into a wearable attitude.
He’s transformed CBGB’s to a beautiful showroom and private stage. A rebirth of the Spirit that has been convoluted by the digital realm.
I had the privilege of working directly with John in his design studio as one of his few designers. One-on-One fittings and casual conversation about design refinement are my brightest memories. A true inspiration for any young person who believes that rock and roll will never die.
