We told you we’ve secured a new work space in Harlem close to Columbia University. So,why would we work so close to such a beautiful institution and not make our presence felt. We called administration and arranged for a personal The BK Circus tour. Lot’s of intelligent women,beautiful architecture,great space and plenty of tradition. On our tour we ran into Rasul from Coup D’etat with some of his boys.
The Brooklyn Circus is featured in The Real street Journal everyday, but shouts to Erik and Rocksmith for their feature in The Wall Street Journal letting corporate know we will not be ignored.
Here it is again. Give us your feed back on some of our new pieces and we’ll decide from there. We have the THX | JPN| BKC part of the City series and our artist series starting with Chris Rubino and our dude Kiser.
We are going to give you guys a closer look at what we do and how things come to life. You either love this or really hate. We just happen to love it and don’t mind sharing the love with you. In the upcoming weeks we will post allot more of the behind the scene shots. From concept,to design to production, the product getting to the sales floor and into the hands of fly A$$ dudes like yourself. Some folks ask questions about how we come up with ideas, who prints the shirts and blah,blah. We’ll show you clips and see if you can figure it out. It’s really not about who prints your stuff and how you came up with it or who does what. For us it’s really about how disciplined are you to connect the dots. Lastly how dedicated are you to supplying the streets with your passion and hot ish. Stop chasing paper and chase your dream , you’ll make more things happen.
Too much to list in one posting. The new Big Block Shirts are almost sold out, this is possibly your last public chance to snatch that piece of history. The design will not be reproduced in those colors ever again. unless the Queen of England calls and wants a custom piece, business is business- And that’s good Free press, nah mean.
At any rate, the Black and Pink original BK BLOCKS will remain the classic and will be reproduced in very limited quantities with hidden changes in all production runs to secretly encode and date them. Hold up! are we talking about T-shirts here? yep, THE GAME HAS CHANGED. Not for hype, but for individuality folks. Ok Ouigi let’s move on.
So onto more circus updates:
Internet at our new work space is patchy and will be up and running fully by Monday. We will post pics and updates from chats with Tsumbe (spelled wrong/sorry my dude) from OMBE in South Orange. We are in talks about a joint project, some fun ish. I think we’ll leave it a secret and suprise even the Circus staff. ha! ha!
GFC:/LACED MAGAZINE : The new mag is coming out next week and the boys are working hard and getting better and better. We met with them and Star Studded- Dee Dee customizer to the Stars (too much to list) about a joint project. We were so pumped , we forgot how hot it was in the office.
Artist Chris Rubino and Kiser joined us for some fun and interesting shirts. They are on the press as we speak. also the City series: starting with The THX| JPN| BKC shirt is also on the press, THX| CHI| BKC and THX| MIA| BKC are coming up. These are shirts thanking all the cities we visited and will visit in the near future for showing THE BK CIRCUS all the love.
Autum send me some more ideas for Chicago and tell Victor from Leaders we want them involved to. Jim in Hawaii shout me out we are coming to see you, Jenelle told me you are crushing them with the parties out there. Gatch and the Special Sauce family in Osaka-Japan, keep up the good work.
Watch out for Dj Kohey and The Circus Music compilation. THE Year BOOK, Holy ish!!!!! THE YEAR BOOK.
Brad we are coming to COCO Beach to shoot some Beach scenes for the Year book.
The beauty of the Blog is that we can keep you up to date on secret and public drops. We are releasing a red,white and green Big Blocks shirt this Tuesday.
Tuesday July 25 at THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS
258 Bergen st Bet Nevins and 3rd ave.
Doors Open at 1PM
Big Blocks Release : “Money Green”,”Bloody Mary”,”Ghost White”
Sizes are very limited (not for the purpose of creating hype) but because we don’t want you folks to all look the same with the same shirt.
Money Green: 42 pieces
Bloody Mary Red:48 pieces
Ghost white: 45 pieces
Which means that if you live In NYC, make your way down to the store and purchase your piece of history, before out-of towners beat you to it. Restrictions: One each per color,per customer. You cannot buy two of the same color. It’s a concept we will label “sharing”, letting others enjoy the goodies too.
Some folks travel really far to come to The Brooklyn Circus. We want to acknowledge them for their love and dedication. We’ve had folks from Puerto Rico (pictured above with Sauce from Canarsie Bklyn ),Holland,Brazil,Belfast,Paris,London,Japan,Mexico,Hong Kong,Shanghai,Amsterdam,Italy
US: Atlanta,Houston,Philly,Connecticut,Texas,Chicago,Miami. This will become a global thing, need I remind you.
Stop by The Brooklyn Circus and add your town to the list. Yep!.
As promised, Gabe from The Brooklyn Circus is in Mia connecting the dots and it wouldn’t be fair not to share the pictures with you. Stops on his run in Miami: Arrive,Shoe Gallery,MIA Skate, ofcourse the strip and the back streets to see some beautiful street art. Gabe will be on the blog sometime today or tomorrow to give you a complete run down of what happenned in MIA. Shouts to Tito from Arrive and the Arrive family who is showing The Brooklyn Circus nothing but love.
Note: Wear The Brooklyn Circus item on your global travels and receive lots of free stuff and love from the locals-The word is out. YEP!
EMAIL FROM GABE ABOUT MIAMI: a few days late for postingm, but worth it.
yo. .so yesterday i walked the famous Lincoln rd. . . a lot of shops. . and a
lot of BASURA .. .Lots of gxxxo shit. .a bunch of non-sense or NO-sense style out
here.. . However their was this pretty sick store named Base . . its featured on
complex’s “Buy It” Miami. . Bro . . this place was very well layed out. . they
had mad ish. . from clothes, vinyl toys, cologne, ill jewelry, kicks (sick
kicks i might add) to an in store hair salon, hard-to-find books & magazines and
music bar . . where u sit at the “bar” and listen to the music on personal
headphones before u buy the album. the store was fairly decent size (maybe half
size of Atrium) a great concept of multi-item shopping, but VERY simplifed.
Good brand selection; Y-3 (some ill man bags), blue blood, nudie, evisu, nike,
adidas some Lemar and Dauley.. . etc. I took mad pics. .I will try and send
pics 2night. Their website doesnt do much justice,…but check it out . .
Im on my way to Arrive, M.I.A and a few others. . its been raining all day . .
but i’ll make the best of it.
by the way SOOO MANY MAMI’s out here homie!! my god!!. . TOKYO, NEW YORK for fashion , and MIAMI for the sexxxyMamis. all
peace. . ill report asap
oh got ur message this morning.. BK CiRCUS yearbook! Dope idea (once again)
hell yes sir. . lets go. .
Happy Birthday to our special lady “Vanessa” as she celebrates her special day with us. Keep up the good work Ness, you are getting wiser as the days go by.
Special thanks to Stadium and STS for always making The Brooklyn Circus a first on their routine shopping trips to America.
We’ve made the final decision to work on “THE BK CIRCUS” Year book. A collection of pictures,ideas,experiences,people,places and things that left their mark on THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS in 2006. Yep a book. Which means I have to call my travel agent to book (no pun intended) more trips,connect more dots and work overtime to drop more hot ish. Did I mention that we have two major publishers interested in publishing the book. More $$$ more $$$ More $$$. More like more hard work,more hard work,more hard work. If they drop the ball we will publish it ourselves. YEP! I think we are up for the challenge.
Shouts to Sauce and Collin our staff photographers, Keep up the good work boys.
