June 4th marked the much anticipated relaunch of New York based global luxury footwear brand, Buscemi.  The Brand is introducing innovative new products through a series of exclusive drops throughout the year as well as a revamped website and Instagram Account. Launched originally in 2013 by Jon Buscemi, Buscemi is a New-York based global luxury footwear brand committed to the craft and pursuit of the most elegant footwear. A union of their obsession with creative style and the highest quality craftsmanship in the world. Each style is made with the finest Italian leathers and the very best embellishments such as signature 24k gold plated locks.

From the 4th the relaunch will be teasing out limited products and select premium styles, making sure that all eyes stay hot on our social communication for updates on when the next drop will be. The first drop features higher quality and refreshed versions of the brand’s icons, the 100MM high top and QUEST low top. The second and third drop will introduce new styles such as sliders, loafers, boots and another alternative version of the brand favourite, the 100MM. As part of the relaunch we have injected a more futuristic aesthetic  to the collections with more metallic styles, solid colour options andoriginal designs.

We marked the occasion with a private dinner reception on beautiful black laquer tables flooded with deep red roses and gold place settings, with the menu reflective of the collection design in an exclusive, stunning location in the Hollywood Hills. Guests were able to see and experience the first drop of the year. Co-hosting the event is award winning visual artist,  Jayson Atienza gave guests an opportunity to win a pair of fully customised Buscemi sneakers hand drawn by Jayson.

‘We are thrilled to relaunch with Buscemi, a brand full of passion and dedication to creating styles using the finest materials and craftsmanship. We want to give a real moment for each new drop so that our audience can fully experience the key features of these designs that make them feel so luxurious such as less stitching for a more polished aesthetic and folded seams. 

The relaunch brings a new era for Buscemi with fresher designs and a playfulness whilst staying committed to producing expertly crafted products made from the highest quality materials.’
