When I opened the package I was speechless. The shoes I had ordered from Mohop were not just an ordinary pair of sandals; they were a true work of art. In the carefully put together package I found a handwritten note, a box of lemon drops, a carrying canvas bag, a beautiful sachet containing 6 different types of ribbons, one containing 4 sets of wooden rings, 9 styling cards with visual directions for lacing patterns and then of course, the shoes themselves, beautifully sculpted out of polished walnut wood.

A New Spin on the Old Swap

Clothing swaps bring us back to a time when money wasn’t the bottom line.  If you had a plethora of chicken eggs you could trade your neighbor for a loaf of bread.  As we move forward into a more shared economy, I was curious if there was a business model that took the private swap idea into the public sphere of commerce. This is when I came across the clothing swap boutique, Give + Take in Santa Monica, California.

Sante Cosmetics: Beautiful Colors, Natural Basis

SANTE Natural Cosmetics was founded 35 years ago. Hans Hansel, who owned one of the first health food stores in Germany, was not happy with the products that were available at the time and decided, together with a few close friends, to start making their own natural cosmetics. The idea behind Sante was to offer high quality certified natural products to an audience that may otherwise choose conventional products. This idea is reflected in packaging and products. Sante also appeals to a slightly younger, more trend/fashion conscious crowd. The motivation behind the product is to offer a natural alternative that is not a compromise in terms of quality, efficacy, color, etc.

This includes items that I can quickly throw on, are comfy, help to keep me and my skin hydrated, and help me to carry things I need to take with me. The items on this list do all of this and more – they are good for me, good for the earth, and great for my hectic schedule!

I have been following London-based luxury womenswear label, Hemyca since 2010 when I saw them at Ecoluxe during LFW, which I helped to launch. Their stand was mobbed and Harrods came to visit them, which is unheard of for a brand just starting. There was definitely some wanderlust. I fell in love with their detailing and cuts and I ordered my very, very long coat.  Three years on and my coat needs a bit of attention on the hem but it still turns heads and having seen their SS14 collection, which I believe is their best yet, I return for a visit...

Tom Patton was living in Chico, California (known as the City of Trees) and needed a new pair of sunglasses. He heard a story about a kid who started an eyewear company and made it big after appearing on a reality show, and this inspired him. A month prior, Tom had watched someone craft an accessory from wood. These thoughts, combined with a concern for impact on the planet, meshed in Tom’s mind and from this, Woodzee was born.
