I tell you what guys, it's not everyday you get to meet a member of one of the most famous families in the world. It also isn't everyday that person actually happens to pop by your workplace! Yet, this is what happened to the lovely staff of our Heathrow Terminal 4 Pop-Up boutique at the weekend, when they had a super special visitor... Awesome singer, bass player and director Jermaine Jackson indulged in a little shopping time while waiting for his flight back to the US. We are used to receiving celebrity visits and some of our most loyal MCM lover have reached musical superstardom, but Jermaine Jackson, former Jackson V and brother of Michael, Janet and La Toya is pretty much musical royalty.
Jermaine went for an all black look to travel.
It is no wonder then that he opted for bag royalty and left the store with our Limited Edition Stark Backpack in Cognac. I think it completed his outfit nicely, giving a bit of light to an all black outfit.
Jermaine Jackson is an American singer, bass guitarist, composer, member of The Jackson 5, and occasional film director. He also produced and recorded duets with American singer Whitney Houston in her early years as a recording artist and was a producer for Bobby DeBarge's band Switch.
