Andy Hilfiger, brother to Tommy and creative director of the Steven Tyler–inspired brand Andrew Charles, is opening up a pop-up shop called Riff at the former CBGB gallery at 313 Bowery. If the choice of location doesn't give it away, the pop up will host a whole lot of music memorabilia, in addition to the Andrew Charles clothing line and other rock 'n' roll-inspired apparel from Riff and Michael H.
Yes, WWD reports that here you can also buy "officially licensed music apparel and memorabilia" from Bravado, for bands like the Rolling Stones, Guns N' Roses, and the Misfits. There will also be Gibson guitars on consignment, and signed lithographs from the Stones and others. If that's still not enough to get your motor going, there's also a club on the lower level with a pool table and a stage. Hilfiger will celebrate the new space with a party at the shop (presumably on that lower level) tonight, which also just so happens to be his 50th birthday.
