Not only is Aldo commemorating their 40th anniversary this year, they’re also celebrating their long term commitment to reduce waste. By adding handles to their eco-friendly shoe boxes and turning them into bags, the goal is to reduce bag consumption by 40% this year and 70% by the end of next year. So when Aldo asked us to repurpose their special edition shoe box into something functional, we embraced the challenge. Reuse, repurpose, recycle . . . no problem.
Maison Martin Margiela is bringing their deconstructed shapes and voluminous proportions to H&M this fall. Though considered to be the most daring collaboration to date, I’m happy to see H&M branch out to more innovative and unexpected designers. Besides, I selfishly can’t wait to get my hands on the glove-handled bags, oversized sweaters, loose fitting trousers, and sky high boots. November 15th. Mark those calendars.
Coats and jackets are our absolute favorite thing about fall. They’re functional and can outlast multiple seasons, which make them so worth the investment. Shopbop‘s outerwear offerings are looking especially attractive with their 20% friends and family discount: WEAREFAMILY. P.S. The sale ends tomorrow so run, don’t walk!
Alberto Seveso‘s spellbinding ink and water photographs never cease to amaze me. In his fourth series he’s injected metallic gold ink into billows of colored ink, creating a stunning marbling effect. Honestly, hypnotizing and brilliant.
After purchasing an abundant (and unnecessary) amount of sequins for last week’s tutorial, I mulled over ways to repurpose them into another project. Inspired by those beautiful African necklaces made from recycled vinyl, it was obvious that a bracelet DIY was in order. Simple and fast . . . I dare you not to make just one!
