Jon Buscemi

Jon Buscemi is an Italian-American fashion designer and founder of his eponymous brand Buscemi. Born in 1975 in Long Island, New York, Buscemi first began working life with a short stint as a stockbroker. During his stint, Buscemi began to collect sneakers, and through industry connections he was able to move into the fashion industry. He worked on special projects for DC Shoes, and was responsible for the DC Black Water, Connoisseur, and Lifestyle collections. After DC, he became the creative director of Lotto, an Italian tennis and soccer brand, before moving onto eyewear brand Oliver Peoples as a brand director. There, Buscemi was in charge of the Mosley Tribes brand along with garnering exclusive brand collaborations. In 2006, Buscemi launched his first brand GOURMET, a brand based on nostalgic design and timeless pieces. He left GOURMET in 2013, and launched his eponymous brand in June selling luxury sneakers. Buscemi’s sneaker designs have since become known for taking inspiration from women’s purses, and are rooted in Buscemi’s own experiences in luxury culture, travel and retail consumption.
