230 Grand Street.
The headquarters for local rebel-chic Mens and Womens clothing line, Love Brigade, nearly consumes the block. The dark, confident, and sometimes overly prowess collections are all designed in the trio's distressed, white-washed old world studio right next door to their pre-war flagship boutique, and then produced locally using factories across Brooklyn. The eclectic Victorian-Americana accessories are hand-selected by the owners at antique markets and hard-to-find channels. A wide array of dapper and unique hats now consume the newest addition to the boutique known as "The Hat Boxx". This is not just a store. Not just a boutique. It is a cultural experience defining true Brooklyn fashion. Studio hours/tours: by appointment only. http://www.lovebrigade.com
