For proof that good things can come from pain-in-the-ass disasters, look no further than the San Francisco outpost of The Brooklyn Circus. The Fillmore destination best known for its hip take on dapper menswear shut its doors a few weeks back after a flood from the building overhead infiltrated the shop, damaging its ceiling and interiors.
But instead of being deterred by the experience, the folks behind the shop regrouped and revamped by adding a new shoe section and rolling out new products just in time for the opening party, taking place tonight during the first annual Fillmore Art Walk. Among the new merch available in the store are hats and caps in Donegal tweed and a selection of shoes and sneakers from labels such as PF Flyers, Spring Court and Thorocraft.
For more about the inner workings of this influential independent fashion brand, check out Pixel Vision’s recent interview with Brooklyn Circus Art Director Gabe Garcia.
Want to celebrate with the BKC? Stop by tonight for an open bar and shopping from 5 to 10 p.m.
