Thirty-nine years ago the Schifters brought LeSportsac to life in the Big Apple, sold in a little boutique in the West Village. New York City has always been part of LeSportsac’s heritage, headquartered first in downtown Manhattan then moved north to midtown, with stays on Fifth Ave, the Empire State Building and its current location at the heart of Garment District. The energy and resilience of the city is woven into the ethos of this brand, which has endured and triumphed through the past 40 years.
Today’s Throwback Thursday will be short and sweet: here are some images taken from a campaign photographed around the city circa the 1980’s, with both delightfully antiquated details and familiar pulses alike resonating through this retrospective.
Our thoughts are with all who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy, and hope you and your loved ones are safe, warm and healthy.
