Really cool Afro-futuristic tees with from Caven + Etomi.
I've been wanting some funky masculine flats for fall and was thrilled when I stumbled upon these lovely options. My daily style is pretty basic and neutral (tees and jeans), so patterned shoes are perfect to add a little flair. Like these hand-crafted shoes made from Ankara fabric from Tawia Designs (above).
The Ten and Co. oxfords pictured above are hand-made in morocco using leather and rugs or woven blankets. I love how colors and print add punch to the classic silhouette .
I've always been a fan of the sneaks from Ohema Ohene. The gold ones are magical!
This delicious collection from Tata Naka is blowing me away! Most of the AW 14/15 interiors inspired designs are covered in boldly mixed bold prints and photographed with a patterned wall and floor as a backdrop. It's so beautiful and inspiring. I'm adding the photos, shot by Becky Maynes, to my mood-board immediately.
I'm loving this collaboration between Asilia, a (fabulous) design studio, and Creativity and Noise, a (dope concept) screen-printing studio and workshop based in the UK. The two came together to produce a collection of tees and other soft goods called AfriCAN under the Creativity and Noise moniker, which just launched over the weekend.
Support good work! See the entire collection here.
I need a pair of these for spring! Inkkas are fair trade shoes handmade in Peru with a mission to repopulate forests globally. Here's a piece from their mission statement:
"It is Inkkas’ commitment to help repopulate the forests in the world. Our vision of fair trade is concrete and pragmatical, this is why we have decided to do this project - For every pair of shoes that we sell, we will plant a tree. It is as simple as that."
Would you rock these colorful and patternful cuties?
