A sister brand of the Splash chain of stores, Iconic is looking at an aggressive expansion plans with stores in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi all set to open before the end of the year.

 

Paul Weller and Miles Kane for John Varvatos

The latest ad campaign for John Varvatos brings together music legend Paul Weller, known as the ‘Godfather of Mod’, and heir apparent Miles Kane. Shot in Manhattan by Danny Clinch, against the backdrop of a Lower East Side pawn shop, the two sharply dressed subjects stand out against the gritty downtown setting. The iconic photographic style, historically used to capture everyone from Bob Dylan to the Clash, is a hark back to the 1960s music scene. We like. John Varvatos is stocked at Bloomingdale’s Dubai.
