has announced the launch of a new collection with The Brooklyn Circus (BKc), available in the U.S. and Europe.
Drawing from Lee's workwear and western heritage, the Lee x BKc collection uses archival Lee silhouettes with the unique vision of BKc. Inspired by the history of Black cowboys, Ouigi Theodore, founder and creative director, The Brooklyn Circus, worked with the Lee design team to thread the significance of Black cultural influence on the West throughout the collection’s development.
"Power to the people,” says Theodore. “We aim to tell the story of our community through meaningful partnerships like this one with Lee. The Brooklyn Circus finds inspiration in the pages of history, so collaborating with a heritage brand like Lee to highlight the history of the Black working west made perfect sense.”
The collection includes men’s and women’s pants, tops, Union-Alls, overalls and jackets including highlights:
Cowboy Jacket: Taking its cue from the iconic 101 Cowboy Jacket, the Lee x BKc Cowboy Jacket brings classic heritage style elements to the modern city.
Unisex Varsity Jacket: A staple of The Brooklyn Circus, this Melton wool and leather varsity jacket incorporates a one-of-a-kind embroidered illustration of a Black cowboy.
Cowboy Jeans: Inspired by Lee’s original 1925 Cowboy Jean, Lee x Bkc refreshes the original style using selvedge denim, custom hardware and modern aesthetics.
