Le Bon Marché Celebrates Brooklyn Makers
A tale of two cities…. Paris vs. New York has been an ongoing debate for some time. These two cities thrive on the romanticized version of who they are, and they have quite a bit in common: passionate citizens, a love of food, drink, fashion and film. Not to mention they both look gorgeous in black and white. New York is not just New York City, there are four other borough's and Brooklyn has been a stand out of creative energy and a young entrepreneurial spirit that has catapulted the already mythological city into a global spotlight.
Paris has taken notice, and with that the iconic department store Le Bon Marché has tapped 100 Brooklyn makers to showcase their wares. The Brooklyn Rive Gauche exhibition will run from September 3rd to October 17th. The department store has brought together craftsman, jewelry designers, fashion designers, chefs, ceramicists, florists, chocolatiers and home goods decorators to represent the new Brooklyn. The pop-up store will be located on the first floor and has been recreated to look like a Bushwick warehouse with exposed brick, large windows, and the classic Brooklyn water tower in the distance. For now you can pop in and snap up the same Brooklyn Brands you would find while shopping on Bedford Ave.
