Editor's Note: Bright New Idea
As our NYC team welcomes a chilly spring, 2019 for Kingston Belle is off to a riveting first quarter. Collaborating with my streetwear brand Vulgar 1993 we just launched our first Ecommerce project - retailing the Vulgar 1993 season3 collection to what has been a very supportive group so far. But here’s the real juice… That sets our stopwatch to 30+ days until the launch of Kingston Belle Shop - an exclusive marketplace for Caribbean creative commerce. Art for commerce has long been mine and KB’s passion. Figuring out how to earn real dollars for the creative class of Caribbean designers in fashion, accessories and home tings has been a part of our long term goals ever since testing our theories at Collection MoDa’s 2017 trade-show. We finally feel we have a handle on how our tribe lives and buys and are just about ready to start supplying just that.
Kingston Belle Shop will not just offer cool gear and home fandangles but also a buyer experience before now unseen in the Carib-latin region. Stay tuned for more updates as we look to involve you guys in the process of curating our offerings to best suit your desires. Summer is right around the corner and as our Editorial team readies our new campaigns, we will be popping up in the Islands come May. So our Jamaican, St Lucian and Trinidadian fans get ready, we’re bringing the brain, bouj and booze. x
