Varvatos Kicks Out His Jams: The Soundtrack to Fashion Designer John Varvatos’ Wardrobe

Detroit native John Varvatos makes ridiculously cool clothes. From Iggy Pop to Thom Yorke, he outfits the rock stars that set a standard for contemporary rock fashion. So, yeah, he’s a total badass in the fashion world. But music is his greatest muse.

At the opening of his new location downtown, Varvatos spoke with WDET’s Travis Wright about the soundtrack for his wardrobe, collaborating with Marshall Amps, and what we can expect from his new store in the Motor City.
