You know it. We know it. Brooklyn is an amazing place. Sandwiched between one of the most vital meccas in the world and a vast ocean, it's a land unto itself: chock full of urban areas but still teeming with tree-filled hoods. Brooklyn rocks because it is where extremes — spacious/cozy, urban/green-filled — coexist peacefully.
Similarly, it's the same complexity that keeps Brooklyn Industries fresh after 13 serious years of defining BK style. The locally grown label nails picnic-ready frocks or bicycle-perfect bags, but still brings it with functional, futuristic puffer jackets and furrier hats. No one masters the combination of street functionality with adorable, go-anywhere items like Brooklyn Industries. And with a new collection based on the mixing of extremes (inspired by Crash. Not the Sandra Bullock movie; the book written by J.G. Ballard about modernity and extremes), Brooklyn Industries kicks up the tough-chic, opposites attract combination, like high-design materials next to classic chambray. Since that type of Brooklyn attitude — which stays true to its roots while nestled beside the fashion hub of Manhattan — can be taken anywhere, BK Industries is offering one R29 reader the chance to cash in on a $1,000 fashion spree, giving their wardrobe a major infusion of functional, fashionable goods. Luckily, this must-shop collection is open to more than just borough-dwellers: All that's needed to enter is your email…and a Brooklyn state of mind.
