Boho chic lands with some fierce fire power this weekend at the market as new collections debut from designers and collectors whose travels and inspirations run the globe and whose work is made within a stone's throw of Williamsburg. This is where the action's at this weekend. Bon Voyage NY is a newly launched womenswear collection from Brooklyn-based designer Valentine (of Crown Heights' Park Deli fame) and Amy Abrams that finds its inspiration in the designers' favorite styles and in block print fabrics and gauze textures (see photo). This is the definitive must-have addition to your Summer wardrobe regardless of how you summer and where you spend it. Sunday only
Luiny Rivera of FiLiLi teams up with Coyote Negro for a dynamic design duo experience that brings these 2 designers' jewelry and clothing to the fashion core of Brooklyn this weekend and next with their life-loving, heart-stopping new collections of accessories and casual wear. Their charm and spirit is part of the fun. Saturday & Sunday
Bombyx Vintage bills itself as a mash-up of high/low vintage from Desiree and Matthew. She works as a shopkeeper and buyer at Greenpoint's Fox and Fawn; he's a DJ/Producer of electronic music that travels the world to create and collect. Together they're built a unique aesthetic that ranges from 1800's to early 1990's to which we say: bring it! Saturday & Sunday
If you've shopped an indie market in NYC over the years, you'll immediately recognize Urban Cricket - designer and artist Gloria Erani's line of graphic tees tanks and totes made by a couple of gals in their Essex Street LES studio alongside original pen and ink (or Sharpie) illustrations of things Erani thinks are important, funny, ridiculous, or all of the above. Saturday & Sunday
Organically-inspired and urban-flared. That's what Eisentraut Jewelry brings this Saturday using fine design techniques with natural elements to bring designer Lindsey Eisentraut's unique brand of fire-power to the home of hip.
