Last week I attended the opening reception for the menswear designer and Uptown resident Brian Wood’s Pop-Up shop in the West Village. The pop-up shop called “First Come, First Serve” was around for 3 days and had for sale a limited edition of Brian’s latest collection and some old favorites. Brian Wood is a New Jersey native who has called Washington Heights home for the past 7 years. His clothing collection is far from typical, Brian is an out-of-the-box thinker who incorporates art and pop culture into his clothing; from North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-IL, to the Simpsons to Count Von Count from Sesame Street. His clothes are mainly made in New York and can be found Uptown at Probus and at selective boutiques across the country.
