SWORDS-SMITH is an innovative retailer of independent fashion including womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessories. The store and website carry a unique curation of more than 80 talented designers, the in-house SWORDS-SMITH collection and exclusive collaborations with other brands, artists and friends. The store is a creative space, often hosting parties, designer events, pop-up shops and art installations, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
SWORDS-SMITH was founded in 2013 by married partners Briana Swords and R Smith with a goal of showcasing creativity in fashion and design. Swords previously worked as a womenswear designer and Smith an interactive designer, the duo created SWORDS-SMITH as a place where their interests, aesthetics and values converge. Housed in a former factory, the 2,000 square foot store is an airy space bathed in natural light. The original brick and steel details were left untouched and are juxtaposed against modern design, neon colors and diagonal lines. In addition to the store, the space houses our design studio. The intact original details are a nod to the former industrial artist haven that the neighborhood used to be.
