Introducing Brownstone: The Latest Brand at Concepts Arrives with a Post- Punk Inspired Collection

Independent Los Angeles based Cut+Sew brand Brownstone presents their Spring/Summer 2021 collection, “Chairs Missing: The Difference Between Looking & Seeing”.

The multi-disciplined design team led by twin brothers Warner & Waverly Watkins push their creative cues to new heights, releasing their largest collection yet. The brand’s Spring offering includes the launch of Brownstone’s permanent collection as well as seasonal ready-to-wear staples such as the brand’s signature Reversible Sukajan Bomber Jacket and their 14 Pocket Cargo Pant constructed from Japanese & Italian fabrications that feature enough smart and acute details to allow the wearer to stand out just enough without ever blending into the ordinary. An emphasis on uniformity is also evident in a double knee worker style denim in a beautiful eggshell white along with matching chore coat.

“Chairs Missing: The Difference Between Looking & Seeing” bears its namesake from UK Post-Punk band Wire and Los Angeles based Ceremony while strongly influenced by themes of hauntology, isolation, and surrealism woven through a subdued color palette.

“Good design is all about restraint. It was important to add just enough to the pieces to produce the desired feeling but never becoming too heavy handed with the inspiration.” says Warner.

“This collection is inspired by the lingering of the past and the sense of loneliness that can deliver. When COVID originally hit it made us reflect on the brand as it was five years ago when we started and the core of what we originally focused on in the beginning - the storytelling, the fabric selections, the color stories."

Select pieces from the collection and seasonal ready-to-wear pieces are available now exclusively at our Boston location at 18 Newbury St, NYC location at 99 University Pl, and on cncpts.com. Shop the brand here.
