The Unco Brand, Inc is pleased to announce the launch of its DTC collection of streetwear this month, which includes high quality, all season unique tees, hoodies, sweatshirts, crop tops, sweatpants, and headwear.
With ‘Un’ messages applied to many of the pieces, this streetwear line is a social reflection of the times. Rather than taking a partisan stance, this line is a response to daily life on the streets, shores and parks of the country. A youthfully new take on being Unbiased, Unattached, and Unapologetic, this zeitgeist brand is primed to take off instantly.
The design duo behind the brand, Cisco Rosado, a globally recognized entertainer, and Ziv Kopolovitz, a serial entrepreneur, are positioned to grow the company quickly. The direct to consumer business model appeals to both founders, as they assess the market to be strongest when consumers are in control.
Cisco Rosado is a music producer, actor, artist and entrepreneur. Born in Brooklyn, NY to Puerto Rican parents, Cisco began his career in music production at 17 years old. His affiliation with successful artists and labels such as Bad Boy Records, Roc Nation, and others, eventually led to his appointment as President of CMG Entertainment. Although Cisco has an extensive history in music production, he is renowned for his prominent role on the VH1 series Love & Hip Hop New York and Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. Most recently, Cisco has partnered with the Aaron Hernandez estate to co-create the Authorized Aaron Hernandez Story.
Ziv Kopolovitz, also Brooklyn born and raised, embarked on his business career at the age of 17. Initially working as a brick and mortar retailer, Ziv transitioned to wholesale, distribution, and manufacturing. In addition to his day to day operations, Ziv was also part of the entertainment and nightlife industry in New York City. Eager to meet the current moment, Ziv has transitioned into e-commerce, marketing, and product design.
From the day they met, Cisco and Ziv connected on a personal level. Unco, their first joint venture, is designed to make a statement. The Unco Brand will roll out accessories, limited edition styles and additional design items monthly, as well as a children’s line. However, Cisco and Ziv’s vision won’t stop there. They are currently working on expanding their enterprise into other innovative brands, products, and concepts.
