A Design Nomad Sets Up Shop in Williamsburg

August 31, 2012

Jewelry designer Caitlin Mociun has lived a peripatetic life. When she was 12, her family moved from California to Malaysia. During their time overseas, they traveled throughout Asia and Europe, to far-flung destinations like Nepal, Australia, Bali, Laos, and Thailand.

The well-traveled designer now calls Brooklyn home, and she’s set down roots by opening a spacious and airy brick and mortar shop in the heart of Williamsburg. The shop, called Mociun, is an extension of her namesake clothing and jewelry company. Mociun carries housewares and curiosities from a diverse selection of designers, many of which can’t be found in other New York stores. The wares are displayed against a minimalist backdrop consisting of polished concrete floors and white walls.

The Mociun store is located at 224 Wythe Street in Williamsburg; photography by Caroline LeFevre, except where noted.
