If only we posessed magical powers that allowed us to simply blink and be transported to any destination of our choosing. In a perfect world, I’d like to spend the rest of my week at Anantara Kihavah Villas, sipping cocktails on soft white beaches and taking dips into the crystal clear waters of the Maldives . . .
Whether it be shibori or with bleach, warm weather brings out our utmost desire for tie dying – especially when it comes to bleaching as working outdoors for this project is a necessity. Inspired by Isabel Marant‘s tie dyed sweatshirts, shirts and jeans, we grabbed our favorite denim shirt and a bottle of Clorox for one of our favorite summertime projects.

Who knew that desert boots, known in South Africa as velskoens or vellies, were first made in Namibia some 400 years ago? Schier Shoes has been producing vellies since 1935 and today, 8 local Damara artisans are responsible for carefully assembling every shoe by hand – turning out just 20 pairs a day. Opening Ceremony has collaborated with the brand to produce a selection of limited edition vellies, which include tufted springbok hide and leopard-print leather. I’m personally a huge fan of the suede versions with the neon capped toes!
