The Best New Brooklyn Boutiques

08/13/2014 4:00 AM |


Created to meet the needs of the female motorcyclist, DOOMEDnyc was founded last year by Rachael Inman and Jason Goodrich. The new shop shares a space with beloved Greenpoint boutique Kill Devil Hill, and doubles as a studio where Inman—who has training in industrial design, but is clearly a natural with leather—makes gorgeous, hand-tooled leather goods, like the classic Road Warrior Barrel Purse (so much cooler than a simple school bag inspired purse, right?) and the Doomed Outlaw Makeup Roll (one of Inman’s first creations, which came into being because she wanted to be able to “ride and be femme”).

And while most everything is designed for the kind of woman who takes to the road with ease, you don’t need to know your hogs from your Hondas to admire the fine craftsmanship and streamlined design of DOOMEDnyc’s pieces. All it takes to fall in love with Inman’s line is an appreciation of beautiful, locally made goods (all the leather is sourced from Pennsylvania and Inman does everything else in-house). But hey, who knows? Maybe purchasing a Lone Wolf bag for yourself will bring out the Easy Rider in you. There’s only one way to find out.
