Today Blackbird is a design studio known worldwide for it’s unconventional and remarkable fragrances and grooming products. Occasionally producing a small collection of objects and producing small collections of apparel accessories.
Blackbird first opened as a menswear store in the neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle, WA on 2004. Blackbird gained its fame for introducing progressive, lesser-known brands that bridged the categories of fashion and lifestyle. Seeing success in retail, Blackbird created an in-house label starting with high quality American-made denim, and expanded over time to include a full apparel assortment, accessories, home good, and apothecary products.
The guiding spirit behind Blackbird is Nicole Miller, its founder and creative director, who has endowed it with a manifest soul, making Blackbird a brand that is loved and followed across the world. Aided by a small-team of designers, manufacturers, and specialists, Nicole brought Blackbird to new heights in 2013 when she decided to focus on distributing the Blackbird brand internationally and shuttered her stores.
Blackbird continues to experiment and play with new and unusual materials and ideas, carefully breaking the rules to create unique covetable products for home and personal use.
