Wolfgang's Vault Launches New Rock Couture "Impresario" Line. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
Inspired by rock impresario Bill Graham's amazing collection of rock art, Impresario is manufactured in small quantities featuring never-before-seen designs that will be retired when they sells out. “This new line is full of unique designs created from the classic rock-inspired graphics from Bill Graham’s iconic poster collection," explains Courtney Chatalas, Director of Apparel Production and Design for Wolfgang's Vault - founded in 2003 with the acquisition of the personal archive of legendary promoter Bill Graham - a vast treasure-trove of poster art, vintage t-shirts, concert photos, concert tickets and other rock music memorabilia, as well as rare recordings of live concerts featuring the likes of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, and Led Zeppelin. "Using modern compositions we’ve created a line that’s truly unlike any other out there. The end result is a high end line of clothing for adults which combines vintage designs with an eye towards today’s fashion sense and comes together to make a brand of fun and stylish wear.”
Currently, the Impresario collection includes tees & track jackets with Rick Griffin’s classic Flying Eyeball on beige that immortalizes the Jimi Hendrix Experience's February, 1968 concert at the Fillmore Auditorium, and Wes Wilson’s The Sound, created by Bill Graham, to promote home-brewed, local San Francisco bands that he featured at his venues.
Impresario is available at WolfgangsVault.com.
