Cadillac Launches Capsule Collection Curated by Nick Wooster
Aug. 12, 2015
Expanding its footprint in men’s fashion, Cadillac today launched a specially curated capsule collection, expressed in 15 looks, chosen and styled by fashion icon Nick Wooster. The Cadillac Capsule Collection is comprised of pieces from the Fall/Winter 2015 collections of today’s most influential emerging designers, many of whom showcase their work annually at New York Men’s Day (NYMD), which the brand has supported since its inception.
The Cadillac Capsule Collection will be available exclusively on Gilt.com/Cadillac Capsule at full price beginning on September 9, 2015, and will include select pieces from David Hart, Cadet and Ernest Alexander unavailable at any other retailer. The Cadillac Capsule Collection ranges in price from $59 to $2,000. All of Wooster’s 15 looks will debut at a kick-off VIP shopping event in New York City on September 1.
“We look forward to bringing the groundbreaking designs of the designers of New York Men’s Day to a greater audience in partnership with Nick Wooster and Gilt,” said Melody Lee, director of Cadillac Brand Strategy & Planning.
This partnership with emerging talent represents Cadillac’s continued commitment to platforms that elevate up-and-coming designers who are making waves in the industry through their daring approach to style and design. The collection features a diverse assortment of pieces from Cadet, Carlos Campos, David Hart, Ernest Alexander, Gents, J. Lindeberg, Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, PLAC, and Timo Weiland.
“Getting dressed is a form of self-expression, and today, men are more attuned than ever to the possibilities in front of them,” Wooster said. “My approach to curating this collection with Cadillac was to show a spectrum of ideas that can fit into a variety of lifestyles. We’ve worked with a cross section of some of the most interesting emerging designers to create a collection that is, in my opinion, stylish, appropriate and cool.”
“For me, participating in the Cadillac Capsule Collection was an opportunity to mix style and performance, which are two words that I’ve always found synonymous with Cadillac,” said designer David Hart.
The Cadillac Capsule Collection caps a significant year for the brand within the menswear arena, including presenting sponsorships for both seasons of New York Men’s Day, as well as a multi-season partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America in support of the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
