Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear
October 18, 2013 New York
On a spontaneous trip to Morocco over the summer, Electric Feathers' Leana Zuniga found herself short on easy clothes that travel well, so she addressed that predicament by filling her new Spring lineup with pieces ideal for rolling up and tossing in a suitcase. Keeping the nomadic lifestyle in mind, Zuniga updated convertible signatures like her Infinite Rope Dress (which just might be the one thing we'd take to a desert island because of its endless styling possibilities) and billowy, drop-crotch Ali Baba trousers. Zuniga revisits those best-sellers every season; what felt new was her "happy" color palette. Lightweight V-neck jumpsuits and draped ponchos came in a range of hand-dyed neon shades, while fluttery melon-hued camisoles and flirty fuchsia frocks were cut from slippery silk charmeuse. Zuniga balanced those more feminine items with menswear-inspired shirtdresses and cargo-pocket parkas. The real standout was an iridescent lilac trapeze dress; it was made for a woman on the move.
