Behind the Brand: Victory Press
Piecing It Together
Jon Cammisa and Jessica Humphrey, co-owners of apparel brand Victory Press, are all about collage and collaboration. They founded the company, which describes its product line as "men's inner-city outdoors wear," just this year, opening their pop-up shop in Brooklyn, N.Y.'s Vinegar Hill neighborhood. The line draws from the couple's diverse experiences in high fashion, skateboarding, bike culture and hardcore. Here, sketches and a fabric selection for a jacket from the Victory Press fall collection are up for consideration.
