A Williamsburg Weekend to Remember: What’s New From Who

Merriweather-Council-Vintage-embroideryFrom the Williamsburg waterfront to the Williamsburg Walks (Saturday is the first of 3 days that Bedford Avenue becomes a catwalk and playground, as if…), the girls from Girls have got it figured out – shopping the markets and shooting their scenes this week and last in WillyB. And the hunting season for fine fashion, vintage threads and cool-ass shit gets under way in earnest this weekend. We call it the June effect. Live it, love it.

The Merriweather Council by Danielle Spurge turns vintage textiles and embroidery into a hip and contemporary line of hoops and hanging things (see photo) for your neck, your ears and your walls. The girl’s got style and wow’d them down in Austin for Renegade – here’s a chance to hold it down on her home turf in NYC. Saturday

Hanna Modern Ethno Style. The name kind of says it all, doesn’t it? Designer Hajnalka Koprivanacz take traditional Hungarian embroidery motifs and turns them into works of wearable art for the hip kids here in Brooklyn. Saturday

If vintage is your game, RFV has your name. Rachel Fox, the eponymous vintage curator behind the brand, likes to call her style and approach to collecting covetable. That almost sounds sinful or certainly a tease towards sin. But no one said looking good was not without a little bit of temptation. Saturday & Sunday

Speaking of desire, Chazer Clothing Company debuts their late Spring/early Summer collection of screen-printed tee shirts and sweatshirts, embroidered hats and embroidered accessories – a whole look that designer Ross Schatz says is “fueled by dezire.” Yeah, you wanna know. Sunday

Big Brooklyn welcome homes to a few of our old friends from the scene who after a 3-month stint at our Chelsea Market pop-up are back and fired up. Irina Yalkowsky has the vintage goods for guys and gals. GoLLy rocks it with their vintage t-shirts, a pop-culture creation sensation.
