SOUTH STREET SEAPORT—Baggu and the Brooklyn-based design collective Fort Makers are setting up a special pop-up shop at the South Street Seaport's Pier 17 tomorrow through August 28th. The press release explains that it'll be like "shopping inside a De Kooning painting," in a space that once housed a Victoria's Secret. The merchandise will include hand-painted scarves, as well as special-edition Baggu totes and pouches, along with Fort Maker's maple-wood cutting boards. [RackedWire]
