Orchard Mile's Jennie Baik on the E-Comm Site, Montauk Bash, and Future Plans

I started three years ago with my co-founders, Julia LeClair and Mortimer Singer, who runs a company called Traub Associates, a luxury business consulting firm. I was running strategy for Burberry under Angela Ahrendts, and I became really obsessed with this idea of marketplaces. Eventually we got together and created Orchard Mile. The way that I explain it to my girlfriends is that it’s almost like having over 130 tabs open at once, but it’s one single shopping cart and one seamless experience.

Naadam: A New DAVID Brand That HENRYs Love

To learn more about the Davids, I sat down with Mortimer Singer, Chief Executive Officer of TRAUB. Singer credits the launch of Bonobos in 2007 with triggering the ‘New Davids’ trend. “Bonobos was a seminal moment in this shift into a new era of the ‘I-brand.’  It’s about the consumer ‘laying on of hands’ to a brand. The customer becomes part of an extended tribe of people bound together by the brand. The ‘New Davids’ brands are forging the future of retail in this HENRY millennial world.”
