Brooklyn We Go Hard
Not so long ago we walked the streets on NYC with Strummer’s Edwina Hagon. She was there on a working holiday ( ... The same thing we would tell our accountant we were doing if we hadn’t left him way out in bat country). At a bar somewhere in Brooklyn, she made us serviette hats and told us about the “working” part of her holiday – her new collection, Brooklyn Beats.
She shot it at the Kellogg’s Diner – “which has been serving Williamsburg since 1928 and is the real quintessential American Diner” – and on a rooftop “of an apartment belonging to Brooklyn locals and creatives alike, Simon and Jessica, who are close friends of Jenny the photographer.”
“The collection is an ode to the creative wanderers who reside in Brooklyn,” Hagon tells us. “I really wanted to capture the energy and vision that is so evident throughout the streets of Brooklyn. The collection itself is an eclectic mix of silk prints, whimsical crochet, lace and street style faded chambrays and denims. An important goal was to design garments with a relaxed fit and look to evoke the notion of freedom and movability.”
