Richard Ross has been tapped to serve as the new creative director of Mizzen + Main.
Ross, whose previous role included working as the marketing and media manager at accessories brand Kiel James Patrick, will be handling the creative and branding for the men's wear line. His role won't involve any significant impact on the apparel.
“At Mizzen + Main we understand the power of our brand,” said Kevin Lavelle, who cofounded the company, to WWD. “We are excited about every ounce of growth that we’ve seen, but we must continue to focus on what makes us who we are. We’ve chosen Richard Ross as our navigator in the next phase of our journey in creating the next great American brand.”
Launched in 2012, Mizzen + Main became popular for its sportswear which is moisture-free and wicking, as well as wrinkle free. Earlier this year, the brand raised 3 million dollars in Series B funding, and they named Texan NFL player J.J. Watts as their brand ambassador.
