Boutique Agency Also Shares New Projects, Products and Promotions
360bespoke, a boutique media agency providing public relations services to luxury brands, personalities and global artists, today released its Summer 2019 Newsletter, a report that shares press placements and updates from its esteemed collection of clients. Among the high-quality placements are the New York Times, USA Today, the Washington Post, WWD, Post, Billboard and Today.
“2019 has been incredibly eventful, but we like to take a beat every so often and share our clients’ achievements and also their upcoming news,” said Jeremy Murphy, Founder of 360bespoke. “The great brands and talents in our collection always generate incredible fascination and interest with the media.”
Charlie Siem, the internationally renowned violin virtuoso, continues to grow his global footprint. In June, he was tapped to perform at the tribute to Karl Lagerfeld at the Grand Palais in Paris. The ceremony, staged by the houses of Chanel, Fendi and Karl’s eponymous label, included a grand celebration of his life and work among 2,500 friends, colleagues and lucky admirers. Charlie performed Paganini n.24 Capriccio on stage as Helen Mirren read famous quotes from The World According to Karl, a book of his most outrageous statements. The violinist was good friends with Karl, and they worked together frequently, including appearing in his book Little Black Jacket, which he did with former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, and the classic marketing campaign for Dior, which Karl personally photographed. Charlie was enlisted among many other celebrities to honor Karl’s talent and genius at the celebration, which made headlines around the world, including the New York Times, USA Today, W Magazine and many other platforms. Looking ahead, Charlie will be featured in both Cigar Aficionado and Lamborghini magazines.
Critically-acclaimed counter tenor Iestyn Davies earned stellar reviews in May at Vocal Arts DC at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater, where, in a varied program, he sang songs by Dowland, arias by Handel and even Eric Clapton’s “Tears from Heaven.” The Washington Post called his voice “arresting … its sound at once otherworldly and rich, dense and thin, with the clarity and heavy sweetness of plum wine.” He also recently worked with song writer Michael Nyman on the new album If, which The Guardian hailed as “a fresh and delicate collaboration” and raved about Davies’ “vocal purity.”
Deborah Mitchell, the creator of the Heaven skincare brand, has created a global empire based on her mind-blowing formulas, like her bee venom serum. It’s earned her a worldwide clientele, from celebrities (Victoria Beckham) to the Royal Family (most famously Camilla, who gifted her products to Kate and Meagan). Deborah was featured in both The Daily Front Row and Simply the Best, which both gushed over her entire line, from cleansers to masks, wipes, moisturizers, hair and nail care products.
Proving talent runs in the family, Sasha Siem, sister to violinist Charlie, has generated media attention for her upcoming album, Holy, and the many singles that have been released before its debut later this year including “Eve Eyed,” “Holey Wholly Holy” and a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song.” Sasha was featured this spring in Billboard, Gotham magazine and a full-page feature in WWD and was named part of the “New Wave” of artists in the Daily Front Row, the official magazine of New York Fashion Week.
Jeff Leatham, the famous artistic director of Four Seasons hotels in Paris (the grand George V), Beverly Hills and Philadelphia, has earned recognition as the rock and roll florist. His displays and presentations are the most unique and unabashed the flower world has ever seen. He was recently profiled by USA Today in a glowing feature that included some of his most inspiring insights. “I create lasting memories, and I put smiles on people’s faces every day,” he told the newspaper. “That’s the best part of my job, from when we do a huge installation and people are like ‘oh my God,’ a knock you on your ass kind of thing, to the simplicity and the beauty of one of my guys ringing someone’s doorbell and there’s a beautiful flower arrangement in their hands from someone that they love. The fact that I create something that makes people smile? I’m a pretty lucky guy.” The world is luckier to have him.
We are very proud to partner with a new company out of Dallas called FLY to promote their new lines of men’s grooming products. FLY is a brand that brings a retro, classic twist to men’s lifestyle, and its collection includes two hair pomades, shaving creems, scented candle and a stylish leather Dopp kit. It’s evocative of rugged Hollywood legends like Steve McQueen and the classic masculine elegance of modern-day marquee idols and is available in fine men’s grooming lounges around the world, as well as online orders through its website. The hair pomade was listed as a great Father’s Day gift by The Daily.
One of our very first clients is the French lifestyle brand Vicomte-A, which brings a cheeky Cote d’Azur vibe to casual and elegant fashion. “Always elegant but sometimes impertinent,” they describe themselves. “Traditional and yet Audacious. Quirky but not frivolous, eccentric but always refined. Often ironic but never facetious. Colorful but not garish. Resolutely French yet always positive. Rooted in its values but always modern. Confident but never nonchalant.” The brand, with 300 locations across the globe, including Paris, St-Tropez, Deauville, Dubai and Tokyo, recently unveiled their 2019/20 “Tutti Frutti” collection and it’s indeed bursting with flavor.
Two of Wands, the knitting company started by Alexandra Tavel, recently revealed its “Retro Summer Collection,” a collaboration with Lion Brand Yarn featuring a classic, 70s-inspired retro vibe. Light and breezy, this tee will be a go-to all summer long. Its contrasting neck and arm bands complement the perfect T-shirt base while a duplicate stitch sunset adds even more vintage charm. Two of Wands patterns are a fresh, modern approach to the timeless fiber arts of knitting and crochet.
We also started working with Scentbird, the subscription service that delivers beauty and fragrance products to 300,000 people every month. The brand unveiled in June a “Healing Crystal/ Gemstone Collection,” which features five masks with the natural healing powers of Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Citrine, Moonstone, and Black Onyx. The capsule collection, hailed as one of the year’s Best Beauty products by US Weekly, is designed to harness the unique holistic properties of gemstones and target a variety of skin conditions, from anti-aging to inflammation. Whether looking for a moisturizing and nourishing treatment, cooling and calming or a warming skin detox, the Scentbird “Healing Crystal/ Gemstone Collection” offers a range of benefits and textures to personalize anyone’s skincare routine.
360bespoke partnered with author Sarah Rose and her publisher Penguin Random House, to promote the new book D-Day Girls: The Spies Who Armed the Resistance, Sabotaged the Nazis and Helped Win World War II, which shared the never-told-before story of three women who went behind enemy lines in Nazi France and help set the stage for the D Day invasion. On the eve of its 75th anniversary, Sarah embarked on a northeast book tour, as well as a launch campaign covered by Today, which called it “inspiring and empowering” and “even if you don’t like non-fiction pick up this book”, WWD and New York Lifestyles, among other media. The book received rave reviews, including by bestselling author Erik Larsen (The Devil in the White City and Dead Wake), who gushed, “Sarah Rose leaves you marveling at the sheer courage shown by these women of Churchill’s Special Operations Executive, who risked all to fight the Nazis and prepare for D Day.”
Turning our attention inward, 360bespoke was proud to celebrate our three-year anniversary with a week-long video series featuring our friends, colleagues and clients extending their warm wishes. Featured in the montages, edited by Bryan Henao, were Neil Patrick Harris, Mayim Bialik, Isaac Mizrahi, Matt Lanter, Cote dePablo, Iestyn Davies and many others. We were also very pleased to announce we’ve brought on media executive Harry Grapenthin, most recently a senior VP at BurrellesLuce, to open a London office for 360bespoke. The news generated headlines in both WWD, O’Dwyers and the Hamptons Daily Front Row edition.
