Wandering around Brooklyn - with Omnia Ex Nihilo

New York is probably one of the most inspiring city in this world : the architecture itself is an ode to greatness. Central Park, the Empire State Building, 5th Avenue : these are the first things that come in mind when thinking about the city that never sleeps. But the very core of its attractiveness comes from something deeper: it comes from the mix that makes its identity, the paradoxe of a place that blends together the luxury of the Upper East side with Williamsburg’s hipster feeling and Dumbo’s industrial vibes. That’s what Omnia Ex Nihilo is : a subtle mix of high quality clothing with a minimal aesthetic and an urban spirit linked to the place where the brand is from. And that’s actually where they’re taking us : Brooklyn, hideout for artists, hipsters and a young crowd in a never ending search for inspiration. So let’s ditch the fancy rooftops, overpriced restaurants and spotless shop windows - they’re not going anywhere. Instead, let’s look for empty playgrounds, hidden art galleries and street art spots. Let’s chase that raw, authentic feeling to be part of this boiling, always on the move city. Let’s seek inspiration in these streets, capture the energy that emanate from them. “Cross that bridge, face the consequences” said Jay Z. Sounds like a tempting idea. So put your earphones on and let’s follow Melissa & Monica who’ll take us around the place where these sustainable and ethical pieces are made.


Omnia Ex NIhilo is a sustainable and ethical brand from Brooklyn, NY. All their clothes are locally made in Brooklyn and the fabrics they use are high quality and sustainably sourced. In the photos, Melissa & Monica are wearing Omnia Ex Nihilo pieces together with thrifted pieces.
