Hold on to your Manolos, fashionistas! Barneys is coming to Cobble Hill!

OK, it’s only Barneys Co-op, an offshoot of the upscale Manhattan apparel retailer, but shoppers can’t wait for the Atlantic Avenue boutique.

“This is so awesome!” squealed Jeannie Chan, who works near the store, which will open in September next door to Trader Joe’s. “I’m going to be there on my lunch break searching for Juicy Couture stuff.”

Barneys spokesperson Dawn Brown said the cutting-edge co-op shared the enthusiasm.

“We’re super excited,” she said. “Tons of our customers already live in Brooklyn so this is bringing Barneys closer to them.”

Barneys Co-op focuses on young emerging designers crafting cutting-edge wares, which may be slightly less expensive than the Manhattan outpost. There are several such Co-op stores throughout the country.

Shoppers are jazzed, but not everyone is singing the praises of Barneys — especially those who could lose business.

“I’m not wary, just indifferent,” said Danielle Lissance, manager of Diane T., a boutique on Court Street between Congress and Amity streets in Cobble Hill.

I would much rather shop from my local retailers, so Park Slope and the Box Store Moms can have the Barney's as far as I'm concerned.
