Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear
March 22, 2013 New York
In the past, Electric Feathers' Leana Zuniga has typically focused on convertibility over construction. This season, she branched out, adding sweaters and footwear to her repertoire. Knitwear came in the form of oversize grandpa sweaters and blanket wraps, as well as fuzzy mohair cropped jackets. She also introduced chunky knee-high suede boots that you could really stomp around in. There was a refreshing efficiency to her Fall lineup, which was inspired by Amelia Earhart. Earhart's influence was apparent in the lightweight worsted-wool jumpsuits decorated with utilitarian cargo pockets, as well as the white shirtdresses. Of course, some of Zuniga's signature style-any-way-you-want sack dresses and "Ali Baba" pants also made appearances here, but they seemed somehow more sophisticated this time around, particularly when cinched with slim belts with gold hardware created by her artist boyfriend Facundo Newbery.
