Moose knuckles names new chief merchant and vp of women’s design

by Stephen Garner

Moose Knuckles has made two new appointments to its team. The outerwear brand has tapped Terence Bogan as its new chief merchant and Joseph McGee as vice president of women’s design.

Bogan will be responsible for developing and directing merchandising strategies that amplify McGee and the rest of the design team’s work through wholesale and direct-to-consumer channels. This will be a great but necessary undertaking, and his experience aligning multiple business sectors at Solitaire Partners and Vince has left him more than adequately prepared. Bogan earned his merchandising stripes at retail juggernauts like Barneys New York, Holt Renfrew, and Urban Outfitters, where he was instrumental in developing brands in a thoughtful way and building categories to drive volume profitably.

McGee will play an integral role in reinforcing the concept of a bold, playful, and empowering Moose Knuckles woman. After two years with Tom Ford, McGee’s efficacy in designing women’s apparel that’s simultaneously sporty and sexy is a perfect fit for Moose Knuckles as it continues to expand its global women’s business. McGee will also play a large role in the visual direction and styling of Moose Knuckles’ visual campaigns, beginning with the spring/summer ‘21 collection.

“We are incredibly excited to have Joseph join the design team,” said Noah Stern and Ayal Twik, co-chief executive officers of Moose Knuckles, in a joint statement. “Joseph’s background in global luxury fashion will provide the strong expertise required for this role as we look to grow our womenswear business significantly.”

“I’m thrilled to join a brand with such a strong understanding of who their customer is and to continue to build on the magnetic, self-aware, and fearless qualities of the Moose Knuckles woman,” added McGee. “Women’s outerwear design is an exciting category that will continue to see substantial growth in the coming years.”
