Creatures of Comfort, Maryam Nassir Zadeh
Float through the summer haze in one of Electric Feathers' light and dreamy (yet intensely chic) confections.
Hot weather dressing can be hard, and it's easy to get stumped on how to stay light and cool in a New York summer's sticky temperatures without being, well, naked. Electric Feathers provides a winning collection for understated glamazons in both city and country. Muted colors on gauzy cottons in deconstructed and flowing silhouettes give off a "Virgin Suicides" aura but are just smart and simple enough to throw on and go. Designer Leena Zuniga has also mastered summer black, layering ultra-thin, nearly sheer layers on casual jumpsuits and sundresses for a hot summer's day and right into night.
