NEW YORK — A deep burgundy color plays a key role at Carr, a new brand launching this fall. The hue is inspired by a vintage Chevrolet once driven by the mother of George Carr, who founded the label with industry veteran Edward Jones III.
Family is an important theme behind this designer line. At its core is a large collection of fashion sketches from Zack Carr, George’s late brother, who was best known for having served as Calvin Klein’s creative director and right hand for nearly three decades. He died from a rare form of blood cancer in late 2000. “While he was living with this paralyzing cancer he just sketched his heart out,” George Carr said. “There are thousands of these sketches.”
