"Our goal is to wrap up the best names in the business," said Ed Marin, owner of Soicher Marin. "Richard has quite a following in New York, so we're just going to put the collection in front of as many people as we can and see what happens."
Mishaan, a multi-discipline designer who began his career as an architect and was a protégé of Philip Johnson, now runs a high-end design studio in New York and has an anchor collection with Bolier & Company. Mishaan also worked as a fashion designer during the '70s and '80s and founded the now-closed Homer, a lifestyle retail shop in Manhattan.
The 76-SKU launch collection offers a high-end New York aesthetic, according to Marin. Influences include Andy Warhol and figurative artist Fernando Botera; Mishaan, who was born in New York and raised in Colombia, was a neighbor of Botero.
Highlights of the collection range from the appropriately named Gilty Pleasures, the Mid-Century Modern-inspired MOMA series and A Day at the Races, a series of "jewel-like little images."
Retail prices average between $400 and $500. Soicher Marin is located in the C&D Building in 2I.
