Shipley & Halmos publish a book all about ... their customer base

February 2, 2011 |  2:46 pm


A few months ago we told you about designers Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos (Shipley & Halmos) hitting the road for a “Fill in the Blank Photo Tour.”

Perhaps you recall that they planned to tour Barneys Co-Op locations around the country in search of the “quintessential Shipley & Halmos customer.” The former Southern California guys (who co-founded Trovata before parting ways with its current owner) planned to meet with those who love their line and take their photos, all in the name of pulling together a rather complex portrait of their customer base.

Naturally, they planned  to publish a book of the photos and now that book is available. Its title is “We’re an American ­­­­­­­­­­­_________” and it's available at Barneys and the Shipley & Halmos website.
