Wild West Brooklyn, women-powered boutique, opens in Williamsburg

Williamsburg is getting Western with this new concept shop.

Wild West Brooklyn (439 Metropolitan Ave.), founded by Brooklyn designers Daisy Hartmann and Elizabeth NeSmith, brings accessories, clothing and home decor from the other side of the country to just off the G train.

Featuring an all-female designer line-up (okay, there's one exception, but he designs women's shoes so we'll take it), Wild West aims to appease urban cowgirls and California transplants alike, with Western flare more commonly found at Coachella than the outer boroughs.

Wild West officially opens on Saturday, April 9 at 12 p.m., with live music, drinks and a special pop-up shop on the back porch.

Take a look around the one-of-a-kind boutique.
