Varvatos Teams With ‘Game of Thrones’ for Capsule Collection

Count John Varvatos as among the fans of “Game of Thrones.”
The designer has teamed with the show’s creator, HBO, on an exclusive men’s capsule collection that will launch on Thursday. This marks the first time Varvatos has collaborated with a television series and is the only luxury fashion collaboration for the “Game of Thrones” final season.
The 11-piece collection features hand-dyed leather outerwear, a cross-over henley, pants, a textured messenger bag and graphic prints on spray-dyed Ts. Signature details from the series are found throughout the collection, including outerwear pieces with the Iron Throne motif printed on the inside of a jacket. Prices range from $ 98 for a graphic T-shirt to $ 2,698 for the hand-dyed leather jacket.

A graphic T-shirt from the capsule includes references to the show. 

“From the very first episode, I have been inspired by the incredible costumes in ‘Game of Thrones,’” Varvatos said. “To have this opportunity to collaborate is a dream come true.”
“As we prepare for the final season of ‘Game of Thrones,’ we wanted to celebrate with an incredible collaboration for a clothing line inspired by the show,” said Jeff Peters, vice president of licensing and retail for HBO. “John Varvatos has delivered a stunning collection of

John Varvatos Men’s Fall 2018

John Varvatos went “rogue” for his fall show, eschewing the official fashion calendar to present on the eve of Grammys weekend in New York.
He selected an old synagogue on the Lower East Side and filled the front row with musicians and executives in town for the big event at Madison Square Garden: all three Jonas brothers, Thomas Rhett, Young Paris and Rita Ora among them.
It was ironic then that this season, Varvatos showed less of a rock ’n’ roll aesthetic than in the past. “I never think of us as rock ’n’ roll,” the designer said backstage before the show. “That’s other people’s perception. But it does have an edge to it.”
Instead, the designer set out to “change it up,” with a show he titled “John Varvatos 2.0” that “explored the notion of looking back to look forward,” according to the show notes.
He turned to his greatest hits over the past 17 years — textured fabrics, handknit sweaters, hand-finished leathers and pumped-up trainers — modernized in terms of silhouette and materials — to offer his take on the street “and how we’re living today.”
Despite the slightly oversized proportions, the collection was not streetwear — intentionally. “I appreciate streetwear but I’m

John Varvatos Men’s RTW Spring 2016

It was a raucous homecoming for John Varvatos who, after seven years showing in Milan, returned to New York to bring the curtain down on NYFW: Men’s.
 
The designer hung hundreds of umbrellas from the ceiling and wrapped the walls and runway with stripes — a clear indicator of what was to come.
 
His spring collection centered around stripes, stripes and more stripes that he used in everything from skinny suits and duster coats to high-button boots. The stripes were offered in a variety of colors, ranging from summer whites and olives to eggplant.
 
“Everything is in such a solid mode today,” Varvatos said. “It’s been that way for too long. I’m trying to be adventurous and playful, everything doesn’t have to be so serious.”
 
While playful, the collection stayed true to the core of the Varvatos brand with its visible rock ‘n’ roll sensibility. This season, the designer was influenced by the British dandies who emigrated to the U.S. in the Seventies, such as Keith Richards, Jimmy Page and the members of Fleetwood Mac. They settled in Southern California and embraced the bohemian lifestyle, resulting in an “easing up” of their dandy roots to become more relaxed.
 
This translated into soft lambskin jackets with silk-linen
