BROOKLYN INDUSTRIES PRESENTS

UNCONTAINED - THE 2015 SPRING COLLECTION

Finding Inspiration In The Most Unlikely of Places.

Recently, our friend David, an electrician who helped us open our first store in Williamsburg in 2001, was looking to buy a house, but when he couldn’t find an ideal and affordable home, he did what very few did - he built his own house out of shipping containers. We were inspired by his out-of-the-box approach of upcycling overlooked industrial elements to solve his problem – an approach that also yielded amazingly beautiful designs. The idea of turning a uniform industrial design, a product that crosses the paths of many people internationally, into something uniquely personal, inspired our designers to create similarly comfortable and utilitarian pieces for our Spring 2015 Collection. They also drew inspiration from industrial workwear and uniforms, railroad and vintage boxcar motifs, along with graphic references from the tools of the trade. 

In this unique collection, you’ll find lots of metal hardware, plackets and details amidst chambray, denim, twill, tough/rugged fabrics and washes that give it a well-worn and worked-in look. Combined with playful, custom thematic prints and graphics, this collection was designed to have overall workwear styling that is true to our heritage.
