The buzz surrounding the opening of the Brooklyn Nets Stadium is larger than the borough itself. It could be Jay-Z’s star power, mixed in with the idea of BK getting its own home team, but it’s all been well and dandy – until the reveal of the Brooklynette dancers’ uniforms.
According to the New York Post, the dance costumes were designed by 45-year-old David Dalrymple, who has worked with stylist Patricia Field for years, dabbled in designs with Beyonce and designed Britney Spears’ most infamous outfit to date: her 2000 VMA nude diamond-covered bodysuit.
In an interview with The New York Post, David explained the concept behind his design:
“The uniforms are feminine and strong…This isn’t palm trees and sunshine. It’s New York City, and it’s Brooklyn. It’s a different sensibility. We go hard…For these costumes, we needed things that these women can dance and move in, but we wanted to bring in street elements. We needed to find that bridge of street fashion that can actually work on the court.”
But the initial reaction from the social media masses isn’t an embracing one; many claim the outfits look “trashy” and fail to epitomize the charm of Brooklyn.
Once the girls start moving those bodies, will the design of the outfits matter all that much anyway? Take a look at the new uniform and give us your take on them in the comment section below.
