Brooklyn Style?: NYMag Says Who’s Who
2000 – David Weeks and Lindsey Adelman launch Butter brand to showcase playful work from young Brooklyn designers.
A long time Brooklyn native, he had a hard time stomaching the carefully edited “timeline” and the elevation of a few players in what has been – if ever there was one – a group happening.
As annoying as this announcement will be to those who live there, Brooklyn has become an adjective, a shorthand for a certain style of living.
Our take? Journalistic drama aside, as well as the glorification of a few, we say Go Brooklyn!
NYC needs the fresh breath of air and urgent creativity of these ex-pats just as much as the D&D building needs to be embalmed and put on display in the MET. And NYMag does a great job of rounding up a ton of design info, including pictures. We look forward to BklynDesigns this spring. For those of you who didn’t make the cut, read it and weep.
