You’ve looked fly, done the hipster thing, and even tried business cas.
Get ready to look sharp: Swords-Smith is now in soft opening.
Designer Briana Swords (Levi’s), graphic designer Ryan Smith, and former art gallery director Nicole Lane Fulmer are the brain trust behind the roomy Williamsburg boutique, which hawks pieces from emerging global designers (about 50 total) as well as a house line.
Pick up easy silk dresses by Dessu and Titania Inglis, preppy Wes Anderson-esque togs from Lauren Moffatt, and quirky sweaters from Paris-based Risto. Bryr clogs help you spring forward; baubles from Mirit Weinstock and purses by Rabbitneck + Dotty cap off the cast.
Guys get in on the action with Soulland shoes and clothing from Common People and The West Is Dead.
E-commerce launches within the week. Celebrate accordingly at the opening party with snacks and Brooklyn Brewery suds. Designer and artist collaborations are also on the horizon.
Things are looking up.
Swords-Smith, 98c South 4th Street, between Berry and Bedford Avenues, Williamsburg (347-599-2969 or swords-smith.com). Opening party, Friday, 6-10 p.m.
