Happy Halloween from Brooklyn Industries!
Jean Paul Gaultier – meet Brooklyn. We’ve been anticipating this exhibition around here for awhile now, and had a chance to get a sneak peek last Thurday at the museum for The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier. Coming off the heels of The Met’s Alexander McQueen exhibit, Brooklyn now gets its chance to return volley with a retrospective on the ‘Enfent Terrible’ of French fashion.
For the exhibition, Brooklyn Industries co-designed a special limited edition graphic tee and cross body tote to celebrate the show. The tote features the iconic blue stripes commonly associated with Gaultier, and comes with a unique cross body strap. The stripes are also present on the graphic tee, along with Brooklyn Industries ‘Live, Work, Create’ motto with a Gaultier stamp over it.
Additionally, we’ll be unveiling the collaborative designs in person at Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday Event on Saturday, November 2nd featuring talks, films, interactive spaces, and lots of live music, including Au Revoir Simone.
See The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier - From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk at the Brooklyn Museum from October 25, 2013 - February 23, 2014.
Inspired by Edward Ruscha’s Every Building on Sunset Strip, French photographer Delphine Monnier compiled a panorama of her walk from Greenpoint to South Williamsburg.
Why wait in line for brunch on Saturdays only to sit inside while it’s beautiful outside. On Saturdays in Williamsburg (and Sundays in Dumbo) head to Smorgasburg - our favorite weekend food fair for fresh air, hangover cures, taking out of town guests, people watching or just gorging on artisinal everything. We love walking around listening to strangers shout out random dishes. Smorgasburg has everything for everyone, from BBQ at Mighty Quinn’s, vegan fare at Vegan Bodega, Dough donuts, and for the masochistic willing to stand in line, there’s the Ramen Burger. We went recently with Max and Aubrey on a particularly sunny fall afternoon, outfitting Max in our Dustin Houndstooth Shirtand Atticus Parka, and Aubrey in our Alma Checkered Buttondown, all while chowing down on popsicles, oysters, falafel, and fried chicken.
