Lessons In Empire Building, From Woodley & Bunny
Sisters Erin and Misha Anderson are quietly taking over the 400 block of Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg. To date, the two floors of their ever-expanding “collective,” Woodley & Bunny, comprise a hair salon, an apothecary, and a boutique, which is a relatively new addition to their enterprise. To celebrate the clothing store’s eighth month in operation, shoppers will receive 15 percent off all merchandise tonight between 6 and 9 p.m. (not your standard anniversary sale, but discounts are always a reason to celebrate), and while brands like The Row, Rick Owens Dark Shadow, Vivienne Westwood, Rag & Bone, Carolina Amato, and Bliss Lau are likely to keep you busy, be sure to make time for a trip to the aforementioned apothecary for a carefully curated selection of some of the beauty industry’s finest offerings. “We try everything,” Misha says of the Andersons’ stock list of rare lines. “I’m not bringing in stuff that I don’t use and that I don’t think is amazing. It’s just not worth it.” That attitude has resulted in haircare from Davines, Terax, and the Swedish cult favorite Sachajuan (Fred Segal is the only other distributor stateside); soaps and fragrances from Italian favorite Santa Maria Novella; and full lines from organic brands like Purlisse and Luzern (although Misha insists that if she doesn’t like an entire line, she won’t hesitate to “cherry-pick” her favorites). That 15 percent discount applies to all merchandise in the building, so feel free to go crazy on choice sunglasses and those Archipelago room diffusers you’ve been meaning to buy.
