How They Styled It – Pi Day Edition

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

In celebration of 3.14, we treated ourselves to Four and Twenty Blackbirds in Gowanus, Brooklyn for some delicious salted caramel apple pie. For this sunny, spring day, I chose a statement plaid, which called for simple, slim cargos to balance the look. Add on a cardigan with a lightweight cotton jacket, and no one will notice if you go back for a second helping.

We’re also offering 14% off up to 3 items when you use the code PIDAY at checkout (the code works on sale items too) – for today only!

What a night! Our New York friends came out en masse for our Crash Into Spring Fashion Event during Fashion Week to check out the new line, installation and video art, feast on Dough donuts and Brooklyn Gin, and of course, boogie to some great music courtesy of DJ So Super Sam. We can’t wait for the next party for the summer line!

Fluorescent Orange Say Hello to Henna

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

Of late our stylist Human Resources coordinator Madoka has been wearing this truly awesome fluorescent orange nail polish from Face Stockholm.  We also put orange on our model Serena’s lips ( check her out above against a delapidated Brooklyn Navy Yard Wall).  Above Serena is wearing a pink version on her lips and the Camelia Jacket.  We highly recommend pairing the jacket, or the color, or the nail polish this with our Kingston Corduroy Pants in Henna, or the Charisma Dress in Rust.

Mary Queen of Scots is Mad for Plaid

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Mary Queen of Scots probably never wore plaid.  She is the Scottish Queen who was imprisoned for 19 years and then executed by Elizabeth 1st for threatening to overtake the throne.  This 4 pocket dress with knot buttons might not save you from insurrection but it will revolutionize your workplace and home life and day to night life and love life.   Or, if nothing else, it will instantly transport you ( via a freighter) to a Scottish heath where Heathcliff might indeed come and sweep you away…to a tower.

Today, we launched our Summer 2009 campaign, which was photographed by our CEO Lexy Funk. The collection, which was inspired by the extraordinary photo-based paintings of Gerhard Richter, is the second collection photographed by Funk this year. In March, Funk photographed the Summer Preview Collection inside Brooklyn Industries’ 22,000 square foot office, warehouse and photo studio in Brooklyn. This time, Funk hit the streets just outside our office door to photograph the Summer Collection. Highlights from the Summer Collection include bright, vibrant colors taken to the next level. Men’s woven shirts, men’s shorts, women’s knits and women’s dresses are available in an array of color ways that include limeade to bright red. New bags include totes and bagpacks with throwback 80s gym bag styling with modern functionality. Also look for new t-shirts with cool creatures. A highlight this month is Spectocularz, which features a keen, three-eyed, spectacled cat whose vision is quite spectacular!
