When Cristina Casciano-King found herself forced to wear all black at work, she began collecting a wide assortment of stockings and tights. Cristina soon realized that legwear allowed her to add a personal touch to her otherwise “boring black” outfit. Ten years and over 500 pairs of legwear later, she has long since quit that job and is now the proud owner of Peek Brooklyn, an online store offering a vast assortment of hosiery to fashionistas across the U.S. Cristina traveled to Europe frequently and was disappointed with the hosiery assortment available in the States. So she set out to bring her favorite brands to the U.S. market. Now, she can embrace her funkier sense of style whenever she wants and sells stockings that allow other women to do the same thing!
Peek Brooklyn is everything you could want in a hosiery boutique. Cristina focuses on imported brands that aren’t widely known or available in the U.S. market, with stunning results. Peek Brooklyn carries everything from socks to hold-ups in both fashion styles (various fabrics, textures and patterns) as well as everyday basics. Cristina hand selects the assortment to showcase brands that most people have never experienced. The top three bestselling brands are House of Holland for Pretty Polly, Jonathan Aston and Phillipe Matignon. Peek Brooklyn products range from $18 to $45 retail, making hosiery an affordable bit of style to accent any wardrobe.
The typical Peek Brooklyn customer ranges from 20 to 40 and has a unique sense of style. Although Cristina sells basic stockings, her most popular products tend to have an “edge.” Lots of her customers come back for the more daring fashion pieces. As an example, Cristina says that she’s sold more Pretty Polly Super Suspender Tights than most small e-retailers.
Cristina said, “We aim to bring the finest hosiery the world has to offer to the U.S. We don’t carry the typical brands found at department stores and are in the process of designing our own range of products.”
