We’ve got some fun news today from American Express.
In partnership with the mobile-first video shopping platform NTWRK, American Express is announcing a collaboration with some of today’s most notable creatives and designers, along with their favorite small businesses, to create unique, limited-edition products launching throughout the weekend of August 20.
These exclusive product duos will include:
- The groundbreaking NYC boutique owner and designer, Telsha Anderson of t.a. and Philly based Yowie, create a one-of-a-kind resin sculpture. This marks the first home good item Telsha has designed. (Launching August 20)
- Creative Director and Designer, Rhuigi Villaseñor, and the L.A. based restaurant Petit Trois le Valley create a limited edition hat. (Launching August 22)
- One of the few women streetwear designers in L.A., Melody Ehsani and Bloom & Plume, a LA based floral studio & coffee shop, partnered to create a vibrant and earthy collection. Titled “The Rec Set,” it features a tote bag, silk bandana, fleece set and socks. (Launching August 21)
Many of us are rediscovering our personal style as we return to work, school, and daily activities. If you are anything like myself, then home decor has also been included as a part of your 2021 makeover, which makes the timing of this collaboration perfect.
These collabs are part of American Express’s recent “Let’s Go Shop Small” campaign, which included a more than $100 million commitment to inspire consumers to support small businesses globally through its year-round Shop Small efforts.
The product drops are exclusively available on NTWRK for 24 hours ahead of public sales at each small business, which will be available throughout the weekend of August 20.
Here is what Walter Frye, Vice President of Global Brand Engagement and Design had to say about this partnership.
“Small businesses are the fabric of our communities and the reasons they feel vibrant and unique. We want to support small businesses every day and this partnership brings together some of today’s hottest designers with their favorite small business owners to produce limited-edition drops that will amplify the importance of shopping small this summer.”
Make sure you keep an eye out for these exclusive drops in the coming weeks.
