Bee Blunt is bringing back Classic American style with an infusion of untold Black History; starting with women in Black History.
United States, 11th Oct 2023, King NewsWire – Following a successful soft launch in Martha’s Vineyard, Bee Blunt is now making its highly-anticipated debut in the Washington, D.C and Greater DMV area. Bee Blunt, the brainchild of fashion visionary Portia Blunt, proudly announces the official launch of its brand, offering an exquisite fusion of Classic American Style and the vibrant tapestry of Black Culture.
This launch comes after a limited time partnership with a boutique based in Martha’s Vineyard. Island Outfitters located in Oak Bluffs welcomed Bee Blunt’s branded apparel into their storefront over the summer season. The summer capsule featured two of the brands iconic pieces, the Inkwell sweater to highlight the Black history and heritage of the Vineyard as well as the Villa Lewaro sweater that pays homage to Madame CJ Walker. This opportunity enabled the brand to present designs before the official launch of Bee Blunt this fall.
The fall collection is introduced with the Lowe blazer that honors the revered Black designer Ann Lowe as well as the Varden Varsity Jacket, paying homage to the pioneering spirit of the first all Black women’s baseball team, the Philadelphia Dolly Vardens. These designs embody Bee Blunt’s mission to infuse historical significance into fashion, capturing the essence of forgotten stories in every stitch. As the fall season unfolds, Bee Blunt unveils a collection that is both visually stunning and historically significant.
While the company’s designs are aimed at telling forgotten Black stories throughout history, the brand is thinking future. “We have a mission to share real history. I find that those who acquire a Bee Blunt design like our signature sweaters are more connected to it due to what it stands for. Down the road this may trickle to becoming a sustainable fashion brand via our consumers; they may in fact keep each garment for decades due to the emotional connection. ” states Portia. Bee Blunt will not be participating in the “fast fashion” industry. All garments and accessories are hand-sourced with the intention of aligning with the untold historical stories, giving consumers reason to hold on to their clothing for years to come truly creating legacy with each purchase.
The company founded by Portia Blunt, an industry veteran with over two decades of experience, represents a fresh approach to fashion. Blunt’s vision for Bee Blunt is deeply rooted in preserving heritage and purpose. Bee Blunt’s unique approach bridges cultures and educates all on the rich heritage of Black culture.
Bee Blunt stands out as one of the few Black-owned brands hyper-focused on the Traditional American style which some may categorize as a modern American elevated style. The brand’s presence is increasingly vital in this space as over the past 3 years more consumers have sought to support Black-owned businesses and keep their dollars circulating within their communities
Those hesitant about supporting a new brand can have absolute confidence in the Blunt name. Portia Blunt’s influence on fashion has been seen in closets all around the world. She has held prominent positions in the world’s largest sneaker brands. Now as she becomes the lead of her own brand, Portia is thinking about the macro of the company, which includes defining the meaning of “legacy” for the Bee Blunt name.
