BLACKBARN SHOP PRIDE PARADE SURVIVAL GUIDE
| New York, NY - June 14, 2019 |
BLACKBARN Shop in Chelsea presents a list of go-to items for surviving late night celebrations in time for morning marches and events that will happen throughout WorldPride Month. From rocking out at the Femme Fatale party to attending the Stonewall 50th Anniversary Commemoration, BLACKBARN has your back when you’re feeling less than fabulous after a day in the summer heat. Get glowing for on-the-go snaps with their proprietary skincare line, Water + Water, and wake up with a warm cup of “Perfect Day” tea for a positive energy that will carry you through all the days events.
THE NIGHT BEFORE
Whether you need the soothing scent of the orange orchards of southern Portugal to lull you to sleep, or some fabulous matching sleep masks to drown out that pre-pride parade buzz, rest up the night before by lighting this thoughtfully designed BLACKBARN candle in Jasmine Dusk and donning this honeymoon sleep mask kit. You’ll need your beauty sleep! In addition, you'll want to look your best for that #Kiss4LGBTQRights selfie, so pucker up with Nash & Jones' lip balm trio (put it on before you go to sleep for ultimate hydration!), and make sure your skin is glowing with BLACKBARN's personal Water + Water line, which features a Sea Clay Mask formulated with seaweed from the coast of Brittany and French green clay to refine and purify.
THE DAY AFTER
If you are a morning person or not, you'll need a little pick me up after a long night of celebration: if caffeine is your thing, try out the organic Perfect Day breakfast tea that pairs well with a nourishing breakfast, the ultimate hangover cure. If you firmly believe in "hair of the dog" or are an out of towner that needs to hop on a plane home the next day, the Bloody Mary Cocktail Kit will make for an easy and refreshing pick me up as well. Clean up well after a messy night as well with a himalayan salt bar that can scrub off the NYC grime. A German brush with soft horse hair will tame wily locks too, so you look 100% for that upcoming catch-up with friends that missed the mayhem.
The BLACKBARN lifestyle brand represents a blend of industrial, artful, refined, and understated sensibilities. It redefines luxury, from creating bespoke homes for those who desire unconventional simplicity to combining farm vernacular with elegant style in a carefully curated group of objects. The brand’s ethos and aesthetic come to life in a DUMBO, Brooklyn shop, filled with hand-selected furniture and homeware pieces, custom-designed and sourced from around the world; it takes an additional dimension at New York City’s Black Barn Restaurant where seasonal, rustic fare meets a modern farmhouse atmosphere.
The most recent development, BLACKBARN Chelsea Market shop, cafe & bar, changes the way New Yorkers dine and shop for home goods by uniting hospitality and retail, in a homewares and accessories shop with a café & bar, to create the total brand experience.
The storied system behind the brand is perhaps best captured in the book, BLACKBARN, published by ORO Editions in 2015.
