BB1 Classic in Uptown Park is known as a destination for art, design, and fashion.
A first in retail, Artist John Ross Palmer, together with Calli and Julian Saitowitz, purveyors of BB1 Classic, has floated a studio of unique and one of a kind items: Hand-painted vintage handbags and wallets, painted memory boxes for keepsakes, highest-quality scarves, books, pottery, furniture, chess boards, and Palmer’s art woven in to silk and wool carpets.
Original works of art are featured on the walls of the Upper Deck of the boutique, where the Artist can be found on most days. John Ross Palmer is known for his Escapism style. He slowly pulls the viewer into the world of the abstract with subtle, realistic images. His philosophy to leave behind life’s challenges, to enjoy the now, and rejoice in the blessings we have can be felt in all of the objects and art pieces John has cobbled together in his second retail environment.
The connection and fusion of Art with fashion and fashion with Art create a major cultural statement. Throughout the ages, art has influenced designers, yet designers are artists themselves through their own design technique and interpretations of what sets the pace in an ever-changing world.
A renowned Artist in our midst and a further collaboration of sisters Calli and Moira, MOIMOI was born: fine cashmere and silk scarf wraps (manufactured with a friend from Nepal) in bold and contrasting colors, with the element of art from John Ross Palmer.
There is no doubt that horses play an important part in the life and art inspiration of John Ross Palmer. MOIMOI brings his “Equestrian Series” to life on distinct scarf interpretations which will awaken and delight your fashion senses.
Art elevating fashion and fashion popularizing art – you can feel it, touch it, see it! The Artist, with a larger than life personality, never stops. The commercial and creative forces engage our customers and have them stop by from time to time just for a zen moment to relax, take it in, and want to take it home.
