Last week, Ben Sherman marked the European launch of their A/W11 campaign 'An Englishman in New York' with simultaneous events in Berlin and Paris. Ben Sherman's team celebrated the new season's collection with an exhibition of the portraits created for the campaign. The portraits feature six Englishmen living and working in New York, who each represent the Ben Sherman spirit.
Guests in Paris filled the pop-up store, 'by Zmirov', to the brim and were treated to a live performance by French post-punk band Slove. In Berlin, a smaller crowd of insider creatives, galleriest Javier Peres and band, Eight Legs, amongst others came to the super cool Michelberger hotel to view the exhibition and take their pick of the new collection. While the Paris guests partied on spilling out into the street, the Berlin guests were ferried by bus across the river to the heart of Kreuzberg to watch Ben Sherman faves Friendly Fires play an exciting live gig at the Lido. It was a night of the Englishman in Paris and Berlin, not just New York!
