Brownstone SS'19 "I Like It Here, Can I Stay? Rude Boys & Girls Club, USA" debuts on Highsnobiety.com
After naming Brownstone as one of Highsnobiety’s favorite brands of 2018, today they have debuted the lookbook for our SS19 collection, “I Like It Here Can I Stay?: Rude Boys Girls Club, USA.”
The collection, which uses Japanese and Italian fabrics, takes design cues from director Jim Jarmusch’s 1989 movie Mystery Train and artist Will Boone’s 2014 book Prison Rodeo. Brownstone founders Warner and Waverly Watkins describe the collection as inspired by memories of family trips to the beach.
“This brand is not about nostalgia,” they say. “We’re very much into the here and now with so many things that we love, so we’re not really reflecting specifically. That juxtaposition of memory was really interesting to us and something we felt worth exploring.”
Hypebeast debuts our SS'19 collection, "I Like It Here, Can I Stay? Rude Boys & Girls Club, USA". This is the third collection and will be available through Union Los Angeles and our webshop.
"Notable mentions include the pinstriped two-piece, a workwear look that features a reworked modernized cut and fabric and a detailed Western graphic lining, and finally, the propaganda-themed cat printed jacket."
Highsnobiety featured us in their #UTR20 list celebrating the best upcoming brands of 2018.
“Los Angeles may be in the midst of a fashion renaissance of sorts, but one of its most promising labels comes by way of Danville, Virginia. Identical twins Warner and Waverly Watkins’ Brownstone label melds easy-wearing pieces with a distinct seasonal narrative, taking the casual appeal of most street fashion lines and inserting the philosophical design intent you’d expect from a cerebral runway savant.”
Union Los Angeles are exclusive carriers of Brownstone’s second collection A New Warning.
