Best of Brooklyn: The Primary Essentials
Senior Fashion Writer
The reason Lauren Snyder chose Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, as the home for her new boho-minimalist shop, The Primary Essentials? There were just so many amazing artisans working in the area. “This part of Brooklyn was missing a good home-and-lifestyle store—and a place to represent a lot of the talent that was happening so close by,” says Snyder, who opened the boutique last fall. Among the earthy wares (from Boerum Hill and elsewhere): Clam Lab ceramics, apothecary-style Jiva Apoha body oil and Caroline Z. Hurley chambray throws guaranteed to add a little bit of Brooklyn cool to any space. And even if you can’t make it to Atlantic Avenue for some brick-and-mortar browsing, the store’s gorgeous site offers an equally irresistible mix of treasures.
