Convertibility and comfort have always been the modus operandi at Electric Feathers. Freewheeling designer Leana Zuniga can tie one of her signature Infinite Rope dresses at least 15 different ways and wasn't bashful about demonstrating her creative styling skills while acting as fit model at a preview of her Spring collection. "I grew up in California changing into bathing suits in my car," Zuniga said, expertly whipping through the various transmutations of amorphous cotton gauze pieces like "origami" pants that can convert into a jumpsuit or a dress.
Zuniga's new video, based on Agatha Christie's novel Evil Under the Sun and starring rocker Melissa Auf der Maur, underscores the on-trend Asian vibe of the lineup. Kimono jackets and silk capes are cinched with obi belts and paired with lampshade hats and Geta-inspired sandals. Overall, it was the simplest looks that were best. A short leather romper and a white cotton "Geisha" dress with a U-back and deep pockets stood out. "No embellishments; these clothes are yours to style. I give the customer the shape and she punctuates it," Zuniga said.
