There has always been a relationship between music and fashion. As with many creative endeavors, fashion and personal style certainly are very influenced by music. Over the years, many music icons have become fashion icons simultaneously. Many of those same music icons have even created their own fashion lines.

Certain designers have even turned their passion for music into the core inspiration of their fashion lines. One such example is John Varvatos, whose menswear line draws inspiration from rock music and infuses a modern aesthetic. The location of the Bowery Street store is non other than that of legendary underground music club CBGB. The store retains much of the original graffiti and concert posters on the walls, a sort of tribute to the club’s heyday. It definitely gives new meaning to the saying “If walls could talk”. Even if you’ve never been to a show at the CBGB, you can feel a certain energy when you walk into the John Varvatos Bowery Street location. Inspiration from rock music’s past leading the way for future generations.
