We were honored last night to host the launch of Henry & 9th, a men’s accessory company featuring a new line of gentleman’s pocket squares. The Loft was full of dapper gentleman and dashing ladies toasting the future success of Jeremy Hunter, founder of Henry & 9th.
“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society” – Samuel Langhorne Clemens (aka Mark Twain)
Such words underscore a universal truism: a person’s sense of style merits the attention of others. Thus, at Henry and 9th, we believe that even the smallest detail – yes, something as simple as an accessory – can make a substantial impression.
Inspired by the eclectic style of Red Hook, Brooklyn, USA, our company blends contemporary style with the classic suiting standards that have withstood the test of time. Thus, whether you prefer the flare of bold patterns, or the conservative appeal of classic solids, we are confident you will find the right design to accentuate your suiting preference.
Yes, details matter. Prepare to make an impression based on your individuality and sense of style. In the end, accessorize your wardrobe with a view toward making an impression.
This month, we bring you a very special treat. An intimate look into our lives/passions/humor/goals via art. We present, “Meet the Swodecks”. A group show with Joshua Swodeck, Chara Nicole Swodeck & Brooklyn Swodeck.
Joshua (39) has been painting and sketching since he was a young boy. He spends his days supporting and coaching clients in branding and marketing themselves. This time, he brings his sarcasm and wit to life via words on wood, canvas and old mattress springs.
Chara Nicole (33) is a gifted wedding & event designer and relishes in the creatively bringing client’s dreams to life. She will be displaying photography by Marlin Munoz from some of her weddings and creating a table so inviting, you’ll want to sit down and eat.
Brooklyn (7) has grown up around the arts. Whether singing, writing, sketching/painting or playing the djembe, she brings life and passion to everyone she comes in contact with. She will be displaying some abstract paintings on paper as well as a few surprises.
Come by and meet the family. Join us also, as Joshua & Chara celebrate 11 years married (nearly 15 years together).
We were contacted by Jonathan & Carrie Pascual of PlanetZaya about shoot a promo for their upcoming film “Still”, a full feature length documentary film woven together using the stories of families who have suffered the loss of a baby to pregnancy or infant loss. August 1, 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the birth of the Pascual’s first child, Elena Rebekah. Elena was stillborn on August 1, 2002 at 21 weeks gestation. Since Elena’s death, Jonathan and Carrie have used their grief and experiences to help other grieving parents on this long dark road of pregnancy and infant loss.
In 2006, Jonathan left his desk job to enter the world of film making. He and Carrie then created their own film making company; Planet Zaya. Their company is named after their now 7-year old son, Isaiah. Isaiah was also born premature after Carrie spent months on bed rest, but is now a healthy growing young boy. View pictures below of Isaiah and our daughter Brooklyn hanging out on the fire escape at the LOFT.
