If you’re a man or woman of the world, you’ve probably heard of Milan Vukmirovic. And if you haven’t… that will all change soon, because this man is on a mission. The stylish Frenchman co-founded Parisian boutique Colette at the age of 26. Since then, he’s worked as a fashion photographer, designer, creative director, and editor for major fashion houses, ad campaigns, and French magazines. And while we don’t like to name drop, we really can’t help it in this instance. Jil Sander, Trussardi 1911, Gucci, Jardin des Modes, and L’Officiel Hommes are just a few of the major labels/mags that have been touched by Vukmirovic’s expertise and fashion know-how.
That said, Miamians know him best as the creative director and founding partner of luxury Miami Beach clothing boutique The Webster. But in a few weeks, he’ll be wearing a different hat. The famous multitasker has teamed up with ‘80s Americana-style sportswear brand Chevignon to create the Chevignon Heritage by Milan Vukmirovic capsule line, which will debut at men’s fashion trade show, Pitti Uomo, in Florence next week. Four men’s looks and four women’s looks make up the collection. And we’ve heard it includes a cashmere peacoat, a camouflage-print shearling aviator jacket (um, amazing!), a gray cashmere turtleneck, and unisex accessories.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed in the hopes of being able to see the line in our hometown, in the very near future. If so, we’ll consider this man’s mission accomplished.
