Although this is her first brick-and-mortar store, owner Lisette Hazan has been selling her anime-inspired women’s clothes and accessories, all made in Thailand, for more than six years at street fairs in New York. Shop at the permanent Park Slope location for her figure-flattering, boldly patterned and eco-friendly cotton threads. Printed dresses with bell sleeves ($98), patchwork skirts made from recycled fabrics ($55) and fleece jacket dresses ($188) hang from silver chain-link wire structures in the industrial space. Accessories such as brass necklaces with laser-cut charms ($28) and vintage silk bow ties that double as hairpins ($10) are scattered on wooden and metal displays.
