New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2010
Simon Carter, the King of Cufflinks, is opening a Pop Up Store in Manhattan to bring newness and excitement to the US retail market. His authentic collection of British sartorial style will make its US debut on November 2 on the fashionable Eastside of Manhattan according to Tim Danser who represents Simon Carter in North America. The shop, located in RS POP at the Roger Smith Hotel at 501 Lexington Ave, is the centre of the best addresses in Manhattan including The Waldorf, Intercontinental, and W Hotels.
Menswear and Accessories is the core of Simon’s British business, which continues to break boundaries in sales in the global marketplace. From humble beginnings, selling pewter brooches up and down the Kings Rd, Simon today has flagship stores in both London and Toronto. The brand is stocked in leading stores around the world in forty countries including Liberty, Selfridges, Bloomingdales, Seibu, Brown Thomas, David Jones and Fenwick. Simon’s collections continue to buck the economic trend whilst spearheading fashions that appeal to the British taste for inventive, understated chic. Simon Carter continues to celebrate his 25th Anniversary by expanding his empire this winter with the pop up store in New York.
Simon Carter’s Autumn/Winter 2010 accessories collection bursts at the sartorial seams with an eye catching range of shirts, classic watches, informal bags and of course, Simon’s iconic signature cufflinks. The store environment will bring the character of Simon’s flagship store in Mayfair, London.
"Simon's style has created real reasons to buy in worst recession since the great depression," says Tim Danser, VP at Bagir International, “Customers have voted with their dollars and the election results are in....Simon Carter has won with today's consumers."
Renowned for his iconic and often witty cufflink designs, Simon Carter strikes a chord with urban professionals. His innate sense of elegance touched with humour is evident throughout the cufflink collection. Why wear a simple star on your cuff when you could be sporting a Swarovski jewel-encrusted starfish or skull? A seed of an idea fulfils its full malachite majesty; from English acorn to global icon, Carter has proven with his new ’Acorn’ Cufflink (crystal embellished setting with semi precious stone) that from little acorns a mighty empire can continue to grow.
Simon’s has the ability to connect with the gentleman who is fashion forward and little edgy in style. The collection has graced every major Red Carpet this season from the 52nd Annual Grammy’s to the Emmy’s. His London Chic lifestyle has been the designer of choice for Hollywood’s elite. High profile celebrities such as Jason Mraz, Alice In Chains, Adrian Grenier, Josh Sussman, Edin Gali, Crispin Glover, Russell Wetanson, Mike Inez, and Dennis Keene shined on one of the most important nights in their life with Simon Carter.
“Today’s man is more fashion aware than ever before, I strive to create accessories that are distinctive and add a whimsical flair to his personal style”, says Simon Carter, “I am delighted to bring the collection to Manhattan.”
When: November 2 to November 21. Open 11-7 Daily.
