With 190 blocks and 15 neighborhoods Brooklyn is the most populous county in the U.S. state of New York and the second-most densely populated county in the country. And as one of the fastest developing boroughs, it’s also the most gentrified. Sunset Park offers the $18 dollar cup of coffee (the most expensive cup of coffee in the country), a rooftop farm-raised chicken dinner can set you back $200 dollars and a t-shirt from a local shop runs upwards of $30 dollars.
At first glance the Brooklyn style vibe is “low-key” hipster. It is a mixture of silhouettes of preppy and sport fashion made contemporary with body art and grungy accessories. Upon closer inspection Brooklyn style is very trendy and lacks the originality you would find in Manhattan but the trendy style is cool and youthful and it fits the community’s historic urban landscape and thriving artisan shops.
The Rag & Bone fall/ winter 2018-19 collection taps into that energy but more traditional in style and design. They focus primarily on neutral colors except for pops of fuscia and millennial pink. In terms of neighborhoods, the overall looks are more Williamsburg, less Flatbush.
