We don't make any bones about the facts of life at Artists & Fleas. We love markets, we love to travel and we love the story of stuff. The market is always on our mind wherever we go. And the conversation about Brooklyn, about fashion, about vintage, about markets and what it's like to be working at ground zero of the creative community for more than 10 years starts conversations, opens up tons of doors and inevitably results in great insights, great meals, and the start of many great relationships. Take Punit Jasuja and Delhi-based Second Floor Studio. To call him a designer would be to limit the vision and impact of Punit's maestro-ness. He is a tastemaker par excellence who is crafting, curating and nurturing part of the fresh fashion scene coming out of Northern India. His bona fides are international and his tastes reflect an intimate familiarity with and an uncanny ability to remix Western trends and Eastern essence. He's bringing bespoke brands like menswear designer KARDO and designer Aneeth Arora's péro to more markets and creating connections that fuel not only wanderlust but the thrill of market-ing, market life and discovery.
Keep tabs on these folks and stay tuned as we work to bring some of the best to Brooklyn and beyond.
