BlueCut is the creation of three talents: Chachi Prasad, Karam Kim and Chris Miale. Their aprons and chef coats are handcrafted in Los Angeles using the finest fabrics and materials milled in America, Japan and Europe. Meticulous attention to detail goes into curating elements that express the chef’s or restaurant's style like custom fabrics, selvage denim, right hand twill, Japanese canvas, and other fine weaves.
Chachi Prasad and Karam Kim, a husband and wife design team, are the founders of the premium denim line Bishop. They're New York City natives who cut their teeth on Fashion Avenue, working for Calvin Klein, John Varvatos, Yigal Azrouel and Oscar by Oscar de La Renta. They partnered with longtime friend and entrepreneur Chris Miale, founder of Intox Productions, a creative agency in New York, whose clients have included Saatchi & Saatchi, Deutsche Bank and Litton Entertainment. Chris' range of expertise includes creative direction, brand strategy, web development, consulting and brokering equity partnerships.
With a passion for cooking, food and fashion, it was natural for Chachi and Karam to be commissioned by restaurateurs and chefs, and in 2009 they created stylish, functional aprons for several establishments. Due to the great response from associates in the culinary industry, Chris suggested that they scale and develop a line of custom aprons that reflected the personality of the chefs and their restaurants.
From there the concept blossomed. Beginning with a few sketches they created a line based on the idea of providing an alternative to the humdrum linen-service commodity wear that had been the norm for centuries. Instead they would offer a tailored fit featuring distinctive designs and quality craftsmanship with an edge. Their approach: “We dress chefs like rockstars.”
