Brute was founded in 2012 by Yasin Ozdemir and Jeffrey Hawk. Respectively, trained as an architect and an industrial designer, the dynamic collaboration emerges from the desire to fuse cutting edge technologies with traditional techniques to tell captivating stories through ornamental body appendages. Fabulating through nature, architecture and kinetics, a formal language materializes that deranges the wearer’s silhouette in unprecedented ways. Brute creates bold, unapologetically intricate, unique accessories for men and women. The design studio is based in New York City; all pieces are produced in USA.
