It all started with a simple idea, sprouting from impressions formed in their youth. Their fathers and mothers taking off their suits and ties the moment they got home from work. Living their days in uncomfortable clothes: they knew that couldn’t be the meaning of this life.
This inspiration formed the basis of their collection. Because a woman wearing a suit by Penn&Ink might change out of her skirt or trousers to put on her jogging clothes, but she might keep on her jacket. Their clothes are, first and
foremost, about comfort.
Stretch, ease, and flexibility are particularly dear to them and run throughout the collection. What they like, they make.
About the name
The owners stumbled across the name “Penn&Ink” in Brooklyn, New York. This was the brand under which Maureen J. Penn and Stanley Ink collaborated in the ‘60s. Penn was the creative mind, Ink represented the business aspects. The brand had a short run and no one knows what happened to the duo…
Nothing was heard until Penn&Ink Brooklyn New York was born again, as the brand we’re talking about right now. The name fits perfectly with what they envision with their label. The American sense of basics in clothing, fashion that is both relaxed and comfortable, yet cosmopolitan.
