For The Brooklyn Girls
If your looking for a new place to pick up fabulously unique looks in Brooklyn, I might have found a place for you! Fetije Madzuric, Brooklyn native and former fashion coordinator for stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdale’s, has returned to her old neighborhood, bringing high-end lines back to the block. While working for other department stores, Madzuric didn’t have the opportunity to stock the up-and-coming, unique lines that now fill her simple, open space, YLLI (pronounced ee-lee) like Megyn Florence, Jesse Kamm, and Castle Starr. Also mixed alongside notables like Sass & Bide, Converse by John Varvatos, and Trovata and if your not just in it for the clothes, don't worry. Naturally there are a wide range of accessories by Brooklynites like Dirty Librarian Chains and Arms & Armory. Plus, you can find one-of-a-kind items that designers have created exclusively for the boutique, where, in addition to hosting open call days, Madzuric tries to throw at least two trunk shows or events a month. This new shopping spot offers a treasure trove of unique looks, I can't wait to check it out.
