Merchandise Director for the OutKast rapper’s freshman line
By Kenyan served as Merchandise Directors for Andre 3000’s (of musical group OutKast) clothing line, helping convey the brand’s look and feel through interior design. The Benjamin Bixby freshman collection draws inspiration from 1920’s and 1930’s football culture. Several props and antiques that we sourced were featured in the brand’s fashion presentations, including hand-sewed twelve-foot Grand Union flags and hot air balloons. When the collection would travel, the clothes were folded into vintage steamer trunks and luggage. Projects included transforming a Gramercy Park Hotel suite into a period-correct, 1930s-era football player’s hangout, and a Red Baron-themed photo shoot.
