John Varvatos Accessories
To create his chic, edgy menswear and accessories, John Varvatos draws inspiration from his hometown of Detroit and the charismatic rock musicians it's spawned: Jack White, Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop, just to name a few. Varvatos’ diverse accessories collection perfectly complements his slim-fitting shirts and jeans, distressed leather jackets, and other designs by featuring vintage-looking materials, dark color schemes, and irreverent motifs — think skulls, bones, and metal studs to bring out your inner punk. Between the flagship label John Varvatos Collection and the more playful secondary line John Varvatos Star USA, one can find everything from aviator sunglasses and wayfarers, sterling silver jewelry, shearling caps, and fingerless cashmere gloves, to oxidized suede duffel bags, calfskin chukka boots, and stylish fedoras. And of course we can’t forget Converse John Varvatos — the designer’s successful collaboration with the popular footwear brand — which has produced dozens of downtown-cool reinterpretations of the classic Chuck Taylor All-Star and the Jack Purcell low-top. Since launching his flagship clothing line in 2000, Varvatos has earned three CFDA awards, created the youthful secondary line John Varvatos USA Star, and received accolades from the likes of Slash and ex-Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant (which surely matter to him just as much as any industry honor).
