Browse online or in their store for jumpers, dresses, sweaters, and more.
Another spot that focuses on sustainability, Kimera achieves this with a focus on limited edition manufacturing and on-demand orders, which helps to minimalize waste. Each item they sell is produced one at a time right here in Brooklyn at their studio, upstairs from their showroom. Something you’ll find here that you might not expect: one-of-a-kind wedding dresses that defy the rules of tradition. If you really want a statement dress for your pending nuptials, this is the place to visit.
This shop has a little bit of everything, and it’s all hand-curated by the owner, Jill. She works closely with local artisans to carefully choose the items that are sold here, with each item reflecting a bit of her own personality in one way or another. You’ll find stylish apparel; shoes; jewelry and other assorted accessories; perfumes; and even apothecary items, like body wash, balms, essential oils, and more.
