The Best New Brooklyn Boutiques

Electric Nest

If you’re not familiar with the fashion line Electric Feathers, just think of the best dressed woman you’ve seen walking around Brooklyn recently; you know, the one whose style seemed effortless, whose outfit floated around her in that enviable, seemingly impossible to imitate kind of way. Well, chances are, she was wearing
Electric Feathers.

Started by designer Leana Zuniga seven years ago, the line of languid, billowing dresses and flowy separates has gained a cult following for its beauty and wearability, so it was only natural that Zuniga would parlay her deft touch to a more comprehensive retail enterprise, namely, Electric Nest. Part boutique, part fashion house, the South Williamsburg shop features the full line of Electric Feathers clothes, as well as jewelry, assorted accessories, and the type of home decor item that would’ve been instantly snapped up by Talitha Getty for her Marrakesh home. And while the clothes themselves are definitely pricey (dresses start at $300, and only spiral up from there), there are still unique and affordable gems to be found, like addictively scented, whimsically designed Keetja Allard candles and Lauren Manoogian’s gorgeous leather bangles.
