New Pop-Up Wanderlust Brings Cambodia To Brooklyn

What happens when a Marie Claire fashion editor who rocks Rochas wedges and Proenza PS1s visits Cambodia? Well, if you were Elizabeth Kiester, you never leave. The world traveler hit Siem Reap and fell in love, and not with a dude, but the country. She came back to NYC, said Eah Sen Heuy (that's peace out in Khmer) to her career, packed up some stilettos (just in case), and hop-stopped it back to Asia, where she promptly set up her own line and store. Now, the global girl is coming back home for a limited-time only with a newly opened Williamsburg pop-up, Wanderlust, (LEED certified, too boot) that does souvenirs right. Forget très tacky tchotchkes, instead discover special pieces (all under $90!) like summery, crayola-colored cotton dresses and shirts, straw hats, over-sized beach bags, and rad necklaces with beads made from recycled magazines. Plus, by helping yourself (and trust, you don't want to skimp on the bold bangles), you're also helping Cambodia—Keister works with NGOs that support local artisans. If you can't make it over, don't worry, her goods are now available at Madewell stores nationwide.
