Soicher Marin debuts Richard Mishaan Collection

Soicher Marin has extended its designer offerings this season with the launch of a new collection by Richard Mishaan, complementing a lineup from design luminaries such as Suzanne Kasler, Jamie Drake, Thom Filicia and Mariette Himes Gomez.

"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.
