Musician, writer, and television personality Nick Simmons is proud to announce the launch of his 3 piece unisex t-shirt collection with The Style Club today as part of the Christian Benner x The Style collection with proceeds benefitting Vancouver  youth organization Sophie’s Place, founded by Sophie Simmons. The hand drawn designs are rocker inspired, fitting perfectly into the collection’s theme of “A Place Where Dreamers Go.” The collection is available now exclusively at www.TheStyleClub.com.

Simmons, who designed the artwork featured on the t-shirts, says “Our family is involved with numerous nonprofits– but Sophie’s Place is our first priority, and I’m so proud of Sophie for taking such initiative for such a great cause. I wanted to follow her lead and contribute in any way I can. I’ve always loved the fashion of outliers–those who embrace their own aesthetic regardless of trends. Our intentions are that the shirts will do some good, and look cool too.”

The Style Club CEO Hilary Novelle Hahn says, “It’s an honor and a pleasure to work with another talented creative member of the Simmons family with our collaboration with Nick. Given this will be a unisex collection, it marks The StyleClub’s first foray into men’s apparel. We believe that Nick’s creative input; combined with the partnership with Sophie’s non-profit – Sophie’s Place – will showcase Christian’s talent while supporting a worthy cause that the Simmons family has championed for years.”

Sophie Simmons, founder of Sophie’s Place says “As a brand ambassador for the Style Club, it was important for me to incorporate two things very close to my heard; family and charity. I am proud that my brother has lent his designs to this amazing cause and a great company such as the Style Club.”

Each piece in the collection is made from a soft cotton/polyester blend and retails for $98 with each customized by Christian Benner, one of the most in-demand creators in New York’s underground fashion scene. Christian Benner has created custom pieces for Brad Pitt, Mila Kunis, Taylor Swift, Brandon Flowers, and Donatella Versace. This is Nick Simmons’ first fashion collection.
