Recognised as one of the most innovative icons of the jazz age, Miles Davis is making a break for the licensing space.
Miles Davis Properties has secured an exclusive partnership with the global licensing and merchandising company Perryscope Productions, as official merchandiser of record for the music icon.
In a recent deal closed by the Miles Davis Estate, a comprehensive, high-end Miles Davis online shop is scheduled to launch spring/summer of 2019 featuring clothing, jewellery, watches, wall art, original art and coffee table books, among other unique items.
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 recognised musician’s likeness worldwide.
“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,” says the Miles Davis Estate.
Norman Perry, president of Perryscope Productions, added: “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 honour 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 authorised apparel, collectibles and wall art that features the imagery and artistry of Miles to complement his timeless music.”
