Despite a disconnected phone (trouble with Verizon), innerwear boutique Brooklyn Fox Lingerie is now open. The owner, a longtime Williamsburg resident, opened the shop after noting that there wasn't really a source for high-end lingerie in the 'burg. She's filled the space with lacy underpinnings from a wide variety of under-the-radar brands like Netherlands-based Marlies Dekkers, Andres Sarda from Barcelona and local talent Deborah Marquit. The petite 400-square-foot storefront, formerly home to wine shop Uva, was brightened up with textured antique wallpaper and eggshell-hued paint. Though the focus of the place is lingerie, Schoenberg is also stocking a few of Shiri Zinn's sculptural vibrators—something you definitely won't find anywhere else in the 11211.
