'Your Friends in New York'
Debuting their new partnered project, Pyer Moss founder Kerby Jean-Raymond and Kering recently announced the creation of ‘Your Friends in New York’ platform for nurturing creative talent among other goals.
Spanning across fashion, art, philanthropy and wellness, the platform aims to enable new talent to “explore innovative and disruptive new business models” while bringing communities, brands and artists together through an expansive eco-system. Commenting on the announcement, Francois-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering elaborated;
“When I met Kerby in 2019, I was impressed by his unique perspective of creativity, innovation, business and social issues. What struck me immediately was his willingness to invent a new, singular model, freeing himself from the usual constraints of the fashion system. It was only natural for Kering to support this project that seeks to empower new artistic talents, to encourage the diversity of creativity and to give a voice to the younger generation of innovators”
