Sneak Peek at our Holiday Windows

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Much like those industrious elves up north, our designers have all been pitching in to get our windows ready for the holiday season.  Over the past couple of months, we’ve been gathering used materials like plastic bottles, newspapers, old twigs, and bottle caps, and finding discarded material around Brooklyn to build an “upcycled” set for our winter forest photoshoot. The set ultimately will be transported to our store windows in time for the holidays.


Plastic bottles turn into falling snow, and their caps into deer skin.



Found carboard pipes turn into spooky forest ground covering.

Recently, we got our hands on the documentary Wasteland, about the Brazilian and Brooklyn-based, modern artist Vik Muniz, and the scavengers collecting recyclable goods from a massive 321-acre landfill near Rio de Janeiro. Working with the collectors, Muniz repurposed scavenged landfill trash into large-scale mosaic pieces and photographs.

Watching the documentary while we’ve been finishing up the set has served as great inspiration to find more ways to creatively use discarded goods. As Muniz once said, “The really magical things are the ones that happen right in front of you. A lot of the time you keep looking for beauty, but it is already there. And if you look with a bit more intention, you see it.”

What’s Inspiring the BKI Design Team for the Fall 2012 Collection

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

For our design process, we start by all collecting images from a variety of sources that appeal to us for any number of reasons, such as the mood, the color palette, or the composition. We then meet and look at our collective image library, enabling us to identify common themes or trends that have emerged.

Trend forecasting can be a difficult, but with most things, when you gather a number of minds together, it becomes much clearer. Here is a collage of some images from our current Fall ’12 mood board. It has a mod/city vibe that reflects the energy of Brooklyn and New York. We tried to keep the colors bright and upbeat across women’s, men’s, and accessories. It’s going to be a great season!

Summer 2010 is breaking records this week, with temperatures soaring above 100 degrees. On Tuesday it was 103 in Central Park, two degrees higher than the previous record in 1999. Even though it’s hotter than hot out our minds are focused on the cool breeze of fall weather, and the fun clothing that make the season so easy to love. Styles from our Fall 2010 collection will hit stores and online soon. Here’s a sneak peek of the campaign Lexy photographed on some of our favorite streets in Brooklyn.
