“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you, New York, New York” – Frank Sinatra
Over six years ago the third generation of a renowned, European knit producer for 60 years made the decision to move to New York City to pursue a dream in the capital of the fashion industry. With an expertise in production and a collaboration with the well-known The Blue Agency, the brand Benson New York N.Y. was created. The foundation of Benson is to develop comfortable, casual, fashionable, and mid-priced clothes by using the best materials around the world to target the U.S. and Canadian markets.
Benson is familiar, it’s home, it’s yours.
Parajumpers is a project deriving from the cooperation between Ape and designer Massimo Rossetti, who has many years of experience as a designer of outerwear, and also as an importer of American brands for the Italian market.
A meeting with a serving member of the 210th Rescue Squadron in an ill-famed bar in Anchorage, Alaska provided inspiration for Massimo Rossetti’s latest creation.
The result is an extremely innovative outerwear collection with highly technological components, designed above all else to be functional.
The success and the evolution of Colmar Originals in the years have led to the development of a complete collection that joins the outerwear range, so as to complete your wardrobe, to create an actual “Total Look”.
The peculiar features of Colmar Originals remain the same, easy to recognize, while the stylistic inspirations and the atmospheres of the collections change according to the trends and the creative visions, in order to offer to the public an evolution of the collection that is always up-to-date and innovative.
