Meet the Team: Quinton

If you’ve been to a party at The Break, you’ve most likely been handed a glass of rosé from our very own Quinton Mulvey. As a customer, his positive energy and undeniable charm made him an instant Break fave, and then landed him his current position as Director of Press and Events. Quinton personifies chic - he is the King of Neutrals, and serves looks that are consistently an aesthetic blessing. Yet while his wardrobe is clean, tailored and oh so put together, his personality shines like a god damn rainbow. We’re lucky to know him, work with him, and you’ll be lucky to hang with him any day at 82 Dobbin. Read on and learn more about our lil host du jour.

What is your role at The Break?

I am the Director of PR and Events. I also contribute to creative projects like our runway collections and photoshoots.


What is your favorite part of the job?

I love when our events come to fruition! Seeing our community engage and celebrate together really validates our team’s hard work. Our most recent Break NYFW presentation was by far one the proudest moments of my career so far - it brought a lot of us to tears seeing over a thousand people cheer on our models down the runway.

What is your ideal day off like?

My ideal day off consists of a slow, caffeinated walk around my neighborhood. I’ve finally found a place in New York that feels like home so I rarely leave Greenpoint. I love window shopping (Franklin Street has the best selection of candles in Brooklyn), meeting friends for a glass of wine at Ramona, and taking photographs / writing in my apartment.

What are you most inspired by right now?

I’m inspired by intimacy. I don’t think people can truly appreciate their beauty until it is reflected back on them in the form of a loving, vulnerable experience with another. In all my creative endeavors, I aim to evoke the intimate moments of affection that have shaped me.


Tell us a secret.

I still haven’t seen The Notebook but I own a speedo with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on the back.


What is your biggest turn on?

Independence! I have so much respect for people (lovers and friends) who create their own path and have a lot going on for themselves. And, of course, good taste.

Favorite instagram accounts?

Describe your personal style.

I like to mix 90s minimalism with touches of resort ease! My ideal look is a creme suit without a shirt, sandals and a statement earring.

What is the best advice you’ve received?

My mother has a saying, “Thoughts become things, choose the good ones.”

What is your favorite purchase you’ve made from The Break?

The drop pearl earrings from Luiny (who happens to be one of inspiring women we work with every season). It was my first pearl moment and I’ve received so much positive feedback.
