When Creative Worlds Collide: Brooklyn's First Loftique Starts
Things Off With A Bang!
Proving that dreams can come true, entrepreneurs Mike Peterson
and Khalid Sumner, introduce YUME BKNY as Brooklyn’s new
destination for skate and art supplies, as well as the
latest in street fashion. Coining the term “loftique”,
these go-getters have positioned YUME as a loft style
boutique in the heart of the flourishing Crown Heights
section of BK. A passion for graffiti/street art,
skating, and fashion is what birthed and nurtured the
idea into fruition. The one-of-a-kind cultural hub seeks
to provide an avenue to bring the three worlds together,
while examining their collective impact on the rest of
the world. Expect to find installations by well known
artists, and a select range of premium wears. To
celebrate the shop’s grand opening on September 30, YUME
will be hosting a party that night (7pm-12am) at
Sputnik, located at 262 Taffe Pl. in Fort Greene.
Legendary Brooklyn turtablist Evil Dee will be spinning,
so make sure you’re on the list.
