Friday, April 3, 2009 covers Night Stalkers Installation

Last night, NYC-based designer Brian Wood showed his latest collection, Night Stalkers, at Rush Arts Gallery. Known for his elaborately constructed garments, Wood also constructs elaborate story lines for his clothes. Fall's narrative concerns a group of toughs out to paint the town red—as in blood, which was represented here by ink splashed liberally on the cuffs of the button-fronts and tuxedo shirts. Outerwear has always been Wood's strong suit, and he did not disappoint, with a coated-cotton peacoat and a virtually seamless washed-leather motorcycle jacket. Those were left unblemished; it's up to you whether you keep yours that way.
