Brooklyn Nets' cheerleaders get revamped
The Brooklyn Nets have seen a lot of changes over the past year and the team may be in its final transition now. BET reports the team's cheerleaders recently got a makeover and the look is definitely inspired by women's urban clothes and New York City streetwear.
The cheerleaders previous outfits consisted of a red, white and blue mini dress. Now, the ensembles feature a mix of black and white outfits including a jumpsuit, a blazer with sequin leggings, and a cropped warm-up jacket with black boots. All the clothes feature the team's new vintage-style logo with touches of modern flair.
Designer David Dalrymple, who has also created outfits for the "Sex and the City" cast, Beyonce and Britney Spears, feels the new looks are ladylike, but also very strong.
"The uniforms are feminine and strong," Dalrymple told the New York Post. "This isn't palm trees and sunshine. It's New York City, and it's Brooklyn. It's a different sensibility. We go hard."
Dalrymple adds he and the team wanted to find a mix between chic and streetwear to best represent New York City and specifically Brooklyn.
"For these costumes, we needed things that these women can dance and move in, but we wanted to bring in street elements," Dalrymple told the publication. "We needed to find that bridge of street fashion that can actually work on the court."
