“A Circus of Like Minds”
I remember like it was yesterday, the first time I visited the Brooklyn circus store back in 2011. Since then I have built an organic relationship with Ouigi, Gabe, and some members the BKc staff. We also had the pleasure of showing the guys a bit of what Philly had to offer on a couple of occasions.
Now 3 years later my entire creative family are celebrating the establishment of a Global Village at The BKc x Art Comes First pop up shop. Search+Rescue provided custom fixtures, tables and sprinkled some found objects in collaboration with the event. Art Comes First brought an aesthetic from London that merged well with BKc’s athletic Americana. The space was well curated and merchandised, raising the bar for specialty retail in the city.
Great vibes and trends in Brooklyn! The brim hat, similar to what you see from Art Comes first, was a staple in the community. We were inspired by this self expression through large hats and layers. See full event coverage HERE. – K.R.T.
