The first time SoJones.com came across Brooklyn Bandit’s collection was late last year, and their impressive denim collection immediately wowed our editors. After four months, the young brand is apparently getting busier and this time they even kicked into the entertainment biz, dressing up the one and only Trey Songz with their awesome Manila Jean. Brooklyn Bandit dishes what they’ve been up to and takes SoJones through the brand’s latest gigs:
Whats up Brooklyn Bandit? How’s 2010 so far?
Brooklyn Bandit has been makin’ major moves.. 2009 was a great coming-out year for us. We maintained top seller positions on Karmaloop since our release, and have been and continue to receive great reactions to our clothing. 2010 has been even better, and looks very promising. We’ve been in touch with some celebrities that are doin’ it big, and they’re definitely feelin’ the bandit movement. Needless to say, 2010 will be our biggest year yet!
What’s your biggest-selling item of 2009-2010?
This is a tough question to answer, considering our entire Fall/Winter collection has been very popular since its release. But, if we HAD to choose we’d say the Manila’s and the Venetos’s from FW09 have been the most popular. Most of those were sold out within a month or two. The Frisco’s also moved a lot.
We heard about Trey Songz looking major hot wearing Brooklyn Bandit jeans on his Blueprint 3 tour in Atlanta. Can you tell us about it?
Trey Songz wore the Manila Jean from FW09 on the BP3 tour. It felt real good to see the biggest name in R&B rockin’ the hottest denim in street-wear. Actually, it felt as right as it felt good. Trey was also seen wearing the Frisco’s from our 09 collection backstage at another event. We’re definitely building a strong relationship with Trey Songz. We’re releasing new pictures of him debuting the “Square jeans” from our Spring/Summer 2010 collection.. So definitely be on the look out for that.
Any preview or hints on your upcoming release?
Our SS10 collection is going to be sick. Along with some new & unique denim jeans, we’re droppin T-Shirts, Sunglasses, and Hats for our Spring/Summer 2010 collection. The shirts are truly game-changers; very simple but still keepin’ it street. The sunglasses & hats are bound to be something people never seen before. Our sunglasses were very inspired by Italian designers, and we added a NYC touch to them to give em a unique flavor. Stayed tuned to our website brooklynbandit.com for updates on the new collection.
Any upcoming collaborations with other brands or artists?
As far as colabo’s with other clothing lines..no. We haven’t ran into any designers that compliment our creations the way expect. As far as artists, we’re releasing the Bandit Cartel mix tapes in 2 weeks. The tapes will have exceptional underground music; everything from hip-hop to indie rock. It’s really exciting releasing the mix tape, and we worked very hard on putting it all together so we hope the public can really sink their teeth into it. Keep checking the website, and Fan us on Facebook for the latest and greatest. As always, we’ll keep giving SoJones the inside scoop about Brooklyn Bandit.
