Miles Davis Properties, LLC announces an exclusive partnership with global licensing and merchandising company Perryscope Productions as an official merchandiser of record for music icon Miles Davis.
The recent deal was finalized by the Miles Davis Estate.
A comprehensive, high-end Miles Davis online shop is scheduled to launch the spring/summer of 2019 featuring clothing, jewelry, watches, wall art, original art and coffee table books, among other unique items.
“We’re excited to work with Perryscope to launch an extensive worldwide campaign that celebrates the genius and legacy of Miles. The size and scope of this project will be revolutionary, just like Miles,” said the Miles Davis Estate.
As per the association, Perryscope will develop a licensing program of wearables and collectibles that pays homage to the life, art, and legacy of Davis, while expanding and enhancing the globally recognized musician’s likeness worldwide.
Norman Perry, President of Perryscope Productions said, “In 1973 I found myself living in London working in concert production as part of the team that staged two sell-outs by Miles Davis at the famed Rainbow Theatre. Years later, it is an honor to be working with the Miles Davis Estate in maintaining his global status as one of music’s most iconic and innovative craftsmen. We are developing a comprehensive assortment of authorized apparel, collectibles and wall art that features the imagery and artistry of Miles to complement his timeless music.”
One of the most innovative figures in jazz history, trumpeter Miles Davis notched his mainstream breakthrough with 1970’s Bitches Brew, which reached No. 35 on the Billboard 200 and was certified platinum. His 1959 album, Kind of Blue, ranks as the best-selling jazz album of all time. Rolling Stone lists “Kind of Blue” in their “500 Greatest Albums” roundup.
Davis also remains a fashion icon, consistently being included on GQ and other fashion publications’ “best of” lists. He was also the consummate fine artist, with sold-out international art exhibitions of “We Want Miles” hitting Paris, Montreal, and Brazil.
