MIAMI, FL – September 23, 2013 – Today, Macy’s announced the launch of an exciting, new brand of ties by multi-faceted entertainer, Nick Cannon. Available now in approximately 25 Macy’s stores – including Macy’s Aventura and Dadeland in the Miami area – and on macys.com, the exclusive collection will feature up to 25 styles in-store monthly, with select styles online, including fashion-forward prints, bold colors and a variety of textures that give each tie a unique personality.
“My style has always been about individuality, confidence and expression,” said Nick Cannon. “With my new line of ties available exclusively at Macy’s, I am thrilled I can now offer shoppers across the country access to spectacular prints and bold colors to create a look that’s all their own. I am also extremely grateful to have the opportunity to work with such a respected name in fashion such as Macy’s and hope to expand my line offerings with them in the future.”
As an actor, comedian, musician and television personality well known for his fashion sense, Nick Cannon must always look and dress the part. Drawing inspiration from work and his personal life, Cannon’s new collection of ties offers a fresh spin on the classic menswear staple. Retailing for $65 and made of silk, each tie will express a distinct style sensibility. Prints include stripes, dots and plaids in bold and unexpected colors including mint, purple, orange and cornflower. From modern classics to dapper, sleek and charming varieties, Nick Cannon ties offer options for every man who wants to stand out while looking sophisticated.
“In addition to being a captivating personality and talent, Nick Cannon is known for his great taste – and he can now add designer to his resume,” said Durand Guion, Macy’s Vice President and Fashion Director/ Mens. “His ties will provide our shoppers with access to Nick’s fresh, celebrity style.”
Cannon is a successful, multi-talented entertainer: film star, comedian, TV and radio host, musician, writer, director, executive producer and philanthropist. When he is not in front of the camera or a live audience, Cannon is busy running his highly successful multi-media company NCredible Entertainment, producing TV and film projects, as well as operating a successful music division. While his professional body of work keeps him extremely busy, Cannon has always made time to use his resources and his voice to give back to the community and those in need – working with nationally recognized organizations such as Feeding America, Boys and Girls Club, Do Something, Toys for Tots, Stomp Out Bullying, Lupus Foundation of America and The National Kidney Foundation to name a few – in addition to running his own Nicholas Scott Cannon Foundation.
Macy’s customers can shop for the Nick Cannon tie collection at select Macy’s and on macys.com.
