So it looks like the Vanquish has another new fan, one whom I happen to be quite a big fan of: Mr. John Legend. He’s been touring through New Orleans, Florida and Georgia and it looks like everywhere he goes, he’s wearing JUMP!

After having met Dusty Wright (the man behind Culture Catch) and Ed Bennett (founder of VH1) at my friend’s mom’s birthday party (random, but cool), they kindly invited me to their Culture Catch
events. Each of which have been very intimate invitation-only performances held at some amazing townhouse or some other crazy loft. Last week’s was at the residence of Joe Scarpinito in Tribeca. The event featured Henry Butler, a blind pianist from New Orleans. I introduced him to the Monderer for Jump Gatsby in Black Dentelle and when he started feeling it, he was immediately impressed. He could tell through his hands that it was a special shoe.
Also in attendance were a host of characters from The Sopranos, notably Michael Imperioli who made the introduction for Henry and who also flipped for the Vanquish Grey Nappa.
My hair’s shorter now.
My homies, Ed and Dusty.
That’s Norena, Henry’s manager, Michael, his wife Victoria and Dusty.
The caterer was wearing one of our shoes from last season, completely unsolicited.
Dope view from the roof.
Joe had quite a collection of artwork. I recognized this piece from a Chinese artist, Yue Minjun. As usual, it was quite a unique event. I’m certainly looking forward to the next one!
