Our Staff Picks Their Summerwear

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Concentration is always a challenge during summertime in New York as our minds tend to wander out the window towards the beautiful weather, BBQs, beaches, music festivals, and parties. Yesterday, we took some of our staff on a trip to our Dumbo store to see what they’d pick out for their summer celebrations.

Helena, E-commerce Merchandiser

This romper is the perfect playsuit for all my outdoor BBQing and dancing! The applique is super cute and warm for those chilly summer nights at the beach.

Nikki, Assistant Mens Designer

This T-shirt is as close as I’ll get to experiencing summer in the 1920s, and the dress is effortless and perfect for a barefoot summer picnic.

Tommy, E-commerce Partnerships Coordinator

I like the muted colors of the shirt and the clean styling of the shorts. I don’t usually wear shorts unless it’s incredibly hot and these are a great pair.  I would recommend rolling up the cuffs just a bit.

Betsy, Merchandising Assistant

The Dixie Short is a perfect pop of color for my summer wardrobe and the Notice Stripe Top adds dimension and style to any ensemble. I love the chevron detail.

Our Summer 2010 Collection has arrived, with lively super-imposed photographic imagery from the 1960′s! Our new campaign was inspired by vintage travel and features BKI employees. Throughout the month of April we’ll be profiling employees in the campaign on the blog and in the BKI Community section of our site!

The women’s collection is lush with color-blocked knit sweaters, fashion fleece, relaxed fit pleated pants, trench coats, two-way dresses, and comfortable cotton skirts. The men’s collection is complete with lightweight super soft hoodies, blazers, casual and dress shorts, slub cotton polos and custom plaid shirts.

Don’t be shy. Tell us what you think!

We’re photographing our new summer 2010 campaign today. It’s raining outside, but inside it’s all smiles. The new campaign, which is being photographed by Lexy, will feature BKI employees! In our sneak peak photo below Pattra, our women’s wear designer, is being photographed by Lexy with the help of our stylist Allison. Pattra is wearing our Nightlife Dress and a necklace from our cool new jewelry line. Both will be available soon!

Today we launched our Welcome to Summer ’09 collection against the backdrop of a brighter, playful Brooklyn. Photographed in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill and Williamsburg neighborhoods, the collection features tailored dresses, non-traditional denim colors, smart graphic tees, hoodies and totes.

Photographer and Brooklyn Industries’ CEO Lexy Funk captured the essence of summer in the city showcasing our new collection of clothing in happier destinations, such as ice cream parlors, parks and waterfronts, still while portraying Brooklyn’s grittiness. Select photographs include zoo animal inflatables that are reflective of the current Brooklyn Industries’ store window displays, which represent the optimism of a new season.

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!

Our last few days of winter are numbered. We’re moving into warmer weather which means it’s time to shop for fun, effortless clothing. Our new summer collection is trickling in and we’ve launched our Summer Preview campaign. This time around our CEO, Lexy Funk took the photographs, some which feature the grandiose backdrop of falling paint on asphalt paper, made by our President Vahap Avsar.

We know that spring’s sense of renewal will extend throughout summer, and we’re truly excited for what’s to come.
