It has become evident that the Brooklyn Nets are on a mission to create a persona starkly different from the one they had while playing in New Jersey. There are the new black and white jerseys, the rustic Barclays Center, and the thought by some that the franchise is cool. Which was all done not by accident.
But all of those changes weren’t apparently enough for the Nets. They also decided that their cheerleaders’ uniform needed a change. Namely, the uniforms needed to be “feminine and strong”. So they turned to designer David Dalrymple to create the new look for the Brooklynettes which entails boots, studded fingerless gloves, zippers and latex.
“The uniforms are feminine and strong,” said the costumes’ designer, David Dalrymple, who has worked with fashion icon Patricia Field for decades, collaborating on costumes for “Sex and the City” and “The Devil Wears Prada.”
“This isn’t palm trees and sunshine. It’s New York City, and it’s Brooklyn. It’s a different sensibility. We go hard,” the designer said.
So we’re now going hard when it comes to cheerleader uniforms? We never got that memo.
