Best of New York 2014 • Shopping

Best Women's Boutique

  • Electric Nest

    60 Broadway, nr. Berry St., Williamsburg; 347-227-7023

    Considering the drapey, languid pieces that define Leana Zuniga’s seven-year-old label Electric Feathers—jewel-tone silk jumpsuits ($578), the dyed- cotton Infinite Rope dress, with adjustable cord straps that can be tied into countless styles (from $645)— it’s not surprising that her first storefront conjures Ali MacGraw’s walk-in closet. The clothing against both walls frames a vignette of home items, including Electric Feathers abstract-print silk pillows ($118). Add a peppering of other brands like Lauren Manoogian’s sculptural leather bangles ($70) and you have the best thing to happen to Williamsburg shopping since Beautiful Dreamers.
