Mariposa Communications, a New-York based fashion PR agency headed up by Liz Anthony, has announced representation of New England prep accessories brand Kiel James Patrick (also the name of the designer). Kiel's long-time girlfriend, Sarah Vickers, is the brains behind their women's accessories and author of "Classy Girls Wear Pearls," a style blog with a loyal following.
Based in Rhode Island, the classic prints and fabrics have us dreaming about prep-school, boat shoes, lighthouses and fisherman sweaters. The brand's nautical bracelets, headbands neckties and belts are inspired by old family tartans, regimental stripes and high quality woven goods. Everything is made locally and as the brand grows, KJP is committed to supporting local businesses and providing US jobs.
Mariposa will be handling KJP's US PR campaign.
