159 - Brendon Babenzien (NOAH)

Blamo!

My guest this week is Brendon Babenzien, founder of NOAH and former creative director of Supreme...And since recording this, the new J. Crew men’s creative director. Brendon and I chat about growing up in the suburbs of New York in the 70s, the massive music scene of the era, and getting into skateboarding. Most importantly, Brendon lets us know what he thinks a brand should be and how he is trying to create a legacy while still operating responsibly, with human rights and the environment informing his decision making. Plus, we get his take on how NOAH is trying to educate consumers to want less. 🛹🎧 TOPICS DISCUSSED🤘🏻🗽 Jeremy Dean Wooden Sleepers Barbour x Noah WLIR: The premier alternative music radio station Shoplifters of the World (Movie) MUSIC🎸 Jim CroceKansas Toys in the Attic (Aerosmith) White Album (The Beatles) QueenThe Smiths The Cure  ART🎨 David HockneyGeoff McFetridgeCurtis KuligDale ZinkowskiTom Wesselmann ** Sponsored by Standard & Strange – Get the facts on denim here. ** Want even more Blamo?

Highsnobiety Podcasts

On today’s episode, Brendon Babenzien of Noah and Sam Lobban, SVP of Designer and New Concepts at Nordstrom, talk about their unlikely partnership and why small businesses and big businesses need to work more closely together. New Concepts @ Nordstrom 011: Noah launched today online and in select Nordstrom stores, but unlike previous iterations of Lobban’s New Concepts series (which has included labels like Dior and Thom Browne), the Noah partnership foregoes a physical installation for a digital one, owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.The accompanying lookbook was styled by Haley Wollens and features several exclusive pieces to Nordstrom, like paisley yellow chinos in brushed twill and a summer-ready white suit, alongside core offerings from Noah and a collaboration with famed new wave band The B-52s. Lobban and Babenzien discuss the inspiration behind the pieces, the importance of working with partners you trust, and the trick to pulling off paisley. Learn more about your ad choices.
