Marc Ecko Cut & Sew Brand News – November
This Fall, the Marc Ecko Cut & Sew media campaign features Marc Ecko as “Curator of Culture.”
Described as the ultimate multi-tasker, Ecko is portrayed with multiple sets of arms to represent his three personalities: The Artist, The Jetsetter, and The Entrepreneur. The inspiration behind the campaign derives from a 1948 photograph of writer, poet, and director Jean Cocteau. This edgy and innovative campaign is characterized by pixilated designs and futuristic models.
Ads for the campaign are prominently displayed throughout New York City, from the tops of taxi cabs to a Times Square billboard. An updated Marc Ecko Cut & Sew eyewear website is coming soon, and will reflect the new campaign images. In addition, Marc Ecko recently created a Cut & Sew tumblr blog: http://cutsew.me/. The blog features pictures and videos inspired by the Cut & Sew lifestyle, including images of Cut & Sew eyewear, sports cars, and Star Wars, with which Marc has a longtime collaboration.
The fall/holiday Cut & Sew line, now available at shopecko.com, blends modern menswear with streetwear style. Muted-colored pea coats, vests, hoodies, and henleys are just a few of the items highlighted in the collection. With its fashion forward, contemporary styling and subtle military details, the fall line pairs well with the latest Cut & Sew eyewear releases.
