The ’80s have long been a touchstone for Electric Feathers founder Leana Zuniga, who grew up during the era and considers lamé an everyday luxury. But with the decade trending heavily in other Spring ’17 collections, her glam, billowing clothes looked particularly relevant this season. Even a minimalist shopper might go for Zuniga’s signature pants—rounded, pleated, and rib cage–high—which came in a sheeny emerald this time around. A boxy top and shorts were even flashier in chrome silk. Decadent? Yes! But they still looked comfy and effortless, two things Zuniga’s customers require on a daily basis....The androgyny underlined the fact that these were really just simple, classic pieces. A juicy color or strange fabric might feel new, but “they’re still things you’ll never need to give away,” Zuniga said. Call it “future vintage,” or the opposite of flash-in-the-pan trends.
