Brooklyn Nets Cheerleaders to Wear Interesting Outfits (PHOTOS)

With their debut in Brooklyn right around the corner, the Nets are looking to make a splash on just about every level. Including the outfits that their cheerleaders will be wearing. From the NY Post (via TBL):  “The uniforms are feminine and strong,’ said the costumes’ designer, David Dalrymple, who has worked with fashion icon Patricia Field for decades, collaborating on costumes for ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ Instead of hair scrunchies, the Brooklynettes have boots, studded fingerless gloves, zippers and latex. ‘This isn’t palm trees and sunshine. It’s New York City, and it’s Brooklyn. It’s a different sensibility. We go hard,’ the designer said. Dalrymple, 45, had designed the red and blue costumes for the Nets dancers in New Jersey and was hired to give the outfits an edgy makeover to commemorate the team’s move to Brooklyn. ‘They had an empty closet we had to fill,’ he said. The Brooklynettes collection consists of seven full costumes. ‘They have a jumpsuit, a neoprene scuba blazer with sequin leggings, a little cropped warm-up jacket, and painted sequin leggings,’ Dalrymple said. The squad of 20 dancers will debut its wardrobe when the Nets preseason begins next month. The Nets regular-season opener, against the Knicks, is at the Barclays Center on Nov. 1.”
