It took approximately one minute of being in the presence of John Varvatos and MGK to see the love they have for each other. Varvatos, 55, and MGK, 27, may seem like an unconventional relationship on paper, but their connection seems like it could be the beginning of a beautiful bromance. Circa News caught up with the pair the morning of Varvatos' NYFW show at MGK's final fitting. And boy oh boy did we get some stories from them!
How did this friendship develop exactly? The two met at The Bowery one night -- MGK covered head to toe in Varvatos clothing caught JV's attention. The two bonded over music, fashion and as my parents call it, a little "reefer" and it was practically love at first sight.
MGK was always a huge fan of the Varvatos brand, spending his entire first big paycheck at the Varvatos store in London. The "Varvatos knot" has become a staple and a prized possession in his wardrobe -- and yes, there is a particular way you tie a scarf, who knew?
But I think the two of them would agree that their "Cinderella moment" at Men's NYFW this past February was what truly defined this collaboration. After a last minute decision to walk in Varvatos' show, MGK hopped on a plane from Germany to NYC without any sort of fitting, any idea of what he would be wearing and certainly without any time. The infamous leopard coat that MGK models in the 2017 ad campaign fit like a glove. Closing out the show that night, MGK brought his attitude, swag and became the muse of the Varvatos brand.
Once again MGK and Varvatos teamed up and brought NYFW the rebel spirit and a true rockstar performance.
What's next for these two? Well, they told us exclusively that a music collaboration of sorts may be in the works. Their mutual love of music and ability to inspire one another might be the recipe for some studio magic. However, what we do know is that whether it is music, fashion or art, these two are certainly going to be doing great things together.
