Brooklyn seems to be the street chic capital du jour. Whether it’s music, art, or fashion, Brooklyn has been churning out trend setting boys and girls, and the world is taking notice. The borough’s gritty, urban landscape is the source of inspiration for those that live there, as is the case with up and coming fashion designer Lovers & Rebels. Incredibly soft Italian leather cuffs and neckpieces are Lovers & Rebels forte. Uniquely crafted, the accessories are finished with uncommon elements like exotic bone, fossilized shark’s teeth, and removable guitar picks (for all you rockers). Speaking of rockers, I was actually turned on to Lovers & Rebels by Jeffrey Remedios from Arts&Crafts and Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene, two loyal customers. I noticed the dope cuffs they were wearing, asked about them, and they excitedly filled me in on their friends Lovers & Rebels. Other L&R clientele include Dave Navarro, Angelina Jolie, and other Broken Social Sceners (and solo artists) Leslie Feist and Jason Colett. The Lovers & Rebels collection is currently available at select stores in New York, Boston, Miami, Toronto, and online @ Mightyflirt.com. Click on the Lovers & Rebels header above for more.
