Since launching vaunted apparel hotspot Apartment more than a decade ago, Ben and Nick Chiu have always kept one foot in retail throughout their subsequent endeavours. The brothers launched successful jazz, soul and funk-focused record store A Love Supreme, following up with its killer party night extension Bless. Now, the boys, along with Sean Bate and Paul Marinos, are uniting their mutual interests for a killer new clothing collection, created under the umbrella of Club Bless.
This limited-edition capsule collection connects the group’s passion for music, jazz and Australian endeavour through a range of T-shirts, totes and New Era caps that boast graphic prints designed by Sean. The crew will be launching the first season of Club Bless apparel with a party and pop-up store in Winn Lane on Sunday July 15. Season one of the line will then be available online and in limited numbers at Apartment. It’s all bound to sell quickly, so don’t sleep!
