Strolling Around Brooklyn Before NYFW Men’s
What’s crackin’ everybody? Happy Monday! I am so thrilled to be able to attend a few shows at NYFW Men’s from tomorrow to Thursday. While I am busily preparing for fashion week, I know I won’t have time to shoot too many outfit photos during the week, so I decided to stroll around Williamsburg in Brooklyn wearing Wrinkle Print Tee by Japanese brand Shinya Kozuka (also available at Opening Ceremony), Black Ripped Stretch Slim Jeans by Topman, and Double Knot Leather Low Top Sneakers by Kenneth Cole (available in store Bloomingdales).
I absolutely ADORE this wall we found in Williamsburg. It’s actually next to the entrance to a restaurant, but the woody wall provided a sharp and earthy contrast to my wrinkle printed tee. I rarely come to Williamsburg, because transportation from Queens to Brooklyn is inconvenient. But strolling around in Brooklyn today with my friend/photographer Elizabeth was wonderful, as if Brooklyn is a new city I have yet to discover. Compared to Manhattan, Brooklyn has more open space which allowed young people to infinitely create and decorate the space as artsy as it can be.
Next, we visited Peter Pan Donuts, an old-school bakery with counter seating, serving donuts, milkshakes, pastries and egg cream. We bought a chocolate milkshake, ice coffee and of course, some lemon donuts. I love how the bakery still features these old-fashioned (or just old) pastry name tags, as well as any other classic restaurant supplies.
To some of you who say that I don’t smile or that my street photography is too serious…here you go, I have personality too!
Brooklyn is beautiful in every corner. The more spacious borough allows its up-front residents to incessantly create new arts and culture on top of the basics of the New York City taste. It’s a must visit borough if you ever come to New York.
