The BKc, John Midgley Visual Poetry & Inspiration: We came across this recent John Midgley photoshoot for Men’s Journal on his agents Stocklandmartel blog that really hit home why we love John Midgley’s work. Leonardo da Vinci said, “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen” and John in BKc terms, is a visual poet. He sees what should be obvious to all and captures moments that become timeless images. The simplicity and precision in his vision creates charismatic photograph that have a poetry about them. His professional experience, raw talent and love for his craft lends his ability to deliver a shoot for Men’s Journal, Paul Smith, Hermes and The BKc without crossing or compromising each brand image. Our love for branding and the creative process makes us appreciate the people who continue to sculpt their craft into our art history books- John Midgley has his chapter reserved.

The BKc, Farrow & Ball: This post is dedicated to all of the designers, interior designers, photographers and creative types that read our blog. From all the people we run into on the streets that hand us their cards, it is safe to say that there are quite a few creative types reading the blog. In our efforts to mature the mood of the store and push The BKc brand into our next stage of sophistication we decided to add some color to the NYc store, we searched high and low for the right colors and think we landed on the right mix. With the help of BKc friend, stylist and interior consultant Scott Newkirk and our lovely color consultant/ Film maker Eva Midgley we settled on a rich Saville Row and Farrow & Ball Paint colors. A combination of Style and Character in a wall paper and paint company, coupled with it’s environmentally safe process, Farrow & Ball Paint co is certainly BKc Approved!. If you are looking for color inspiration take a trip to their Mercer store and tell them The Brooklyn Circus sent you (won’t get you a discount, but it’ll be a great ice breaker). Stay tuned for the reveal, The BKc Style & Character and The Hundred Year Plan . . .
The BKc Shoe Library: As we add the final touches or the first coat of Farrow & Ball Paint to our NYc transformation, we are excited to report that our new shoe section has been successfully installed. The last few months The BKc SF has done a great job introducing “The BKc Shoe Library” into the San Francisco store. The reviews have been positive and therefore we decided to carry it over to NYc. We’ve enforced our relationships with some of the best brands in the casual shoe business to bring you a hand picked mix of BKc approved footwear. Our latest addition to the library is Common Projects– a practical yet luxurious brand, Now available exclusively at The Brooklyn Circus SF (1521 Fillmore St.) and The BKc Online Shop.

The BKc, NYc Renovations Sneak Peak. The team has been hard at work these past few weeks putting together all the pieces for The BKc Fall/Holiday collection. Not only will there be a lot of great new pieces but The BKc NYc will have an all new look. For our Spring Made in the U.S.A. collection we added a brand new awning and sign made with 24kt gold flakes. So we decided the only thing that could top that was a completely new look on the inside of the store. We are excited about the new changes and we know you guys are anxious to see what’s going on behind the scenes. So stay tuned this entire week for photos of the evolution of The BKc NYc.
