What's old is new. It's a vintage lover's mantra but also so true. Two top Brooklyn vintage enthusiasts of the next generation - Mintage and Brooklyn Bleu - return with their collections - unearthing some stellar just-in-time-for-Spring items throughout the weekend. Discovery at your fingertips. Russian Criminal Tattoos is just that, a fascinating deep dive look into the world of Soviet era military surplus iconography turned into re-imagined street apparel by MIR and designer Roman Belenky. Saturday only
Harry Berry is Colombian artist Harrison Berrio's accessory collection that goes from the modern to the rustic, fusing materials that are both raw and rarified. Saturday & Sunday
An Argentine artist takes on the Brooklyn vibe and boom, you've got Esteban Kremen. It's mighty refreshing to see the world we live in through the eyes of a well-traveled citizen of the world. Dig it on Saturday only.
Men might have a Home Depot fantasy (you know, the idea that you can walk in and buy some power tools and build a barn on the roof of your Graham Avenue walk-up?) but Alison Freed is living the dream turning hardware into heavenly works of cool - crystal seed beads, rubber, rope, items from the basement of The Home Depot made drop-dead gorgeous (photo right). Crest Hardware Art Show isn't yet taking applications but Alison needs to get on it! Lucky for you, you can check it out in the flesh and try it on Saturday.
There's something lovingly un-ironic about Amelie Mancini's Left Field Cards, a Parisian painter's obsession with American baseball and the fusing of old world print-making traditions with modern-day trading cards (photo above). If ever you held in your hand that Mookie Wilson from the 1980s and want to reignite the love and the passion - for the cards, not necessarily the team - game on. Amelie brings it to Williamsburg. Sunday only
