Fashion and food may not be the most obvious partnership, but it seems to work for GANT Rugger, a sportswear brand who is now collaborating with three Brooklyn-based artisans: The Sussman Brothers, Kings County Distillery and the Brooklyn Salsa Company.
These New York City residents also inspired creative director Christopher Bastin directly in the creation of GANT Rugger’s fall 2013 collection. The result? Updated, classic separates that, as Bastin explained, are “about dressing the people that inspire us.”
Take a look in the DuJour gallery to see how GANT Rugger celebrated their “Brooklyn Luxè” collection on Thursday evening with their new partners.
