Clockwise from upper left: Bird, Our Legacy, Acne, Fillippa K.
It was a pleasant surprise this morning when we opened our inboxes to find an email entitled "Bird Hearts Boys" from one of our top go-to Brooklyn boutiques—you guessed it—Bird. Owner Jen Mankins is well-loved for her uncanny skill in handpicking the best from our favorite indie designers and presenting the covetable collections in her charming stores, but this is the first time she's venturing into the world of menswear. We think it's a cinch for her, so whether you're a guy yourself or you have one in your life, this is grounds to celebrate. Included in the juicy email were sneak peeks at some of the exciting new men's pieces, which include Acne pullovers and denim, Filippa K shawl-neck sweaters, Our Legacy fisherman hats, and classic Shipley & Halmos duds. Better head out to Bird's locations early this weekend—we're expecting a mad rush.
Bird is located at 316 Fifth Ave, Park Slope, 718.768.4940 and 220 Smith Street, Cobble Hill, 718-797-3774 or go online to www.shopbird.com.
