A rainbow of socks

A big thanks to Claire who shared with me this site where you can buy socks in multiple colours… which is the perfect match with the laces I have blogged about a couple of days ago.

Looking at them, I just want to mix and match…

Compose with the French brand Les Composantes

Les Composantes is a French fashion label that offers a limited collection each month, as well as exclusive vintage items. It offers clothes and accessories that women have always wanted but have never found, such as the essentials: the perfect little black dress or the classic leather bag with a slight twist which make them very special…

There is also a section where you can sell and buy items to come in support of the association of  Malaria No More.

Colourful laces for men

It’s been a while since my last post but today I have decided to untie the knot and start posting again.

So what is more natural to talk about a small familial business which has been florishing in the make of colourful laces since 1920. This French manufacturer offers over ten different shades of laces for menshoes.

They are made and teinted in France and are a real must have to costumise your old shoes or the ones that are worn by the ‘too manies’.

Camera bags by M Billingham & Comust

Another day, another type of bag. The take of the day!

The new fStop range from Billingham embodies that unique combination of tradition and innovation. Designed for those times when you want to travel light, but still providing the high level of protection, style and craftsmanship.

The company’s transition from a manufacturer of fishing bags to one of camera bags came about in 1978 when Martin Billingham, a keen photographer himself, discovered that the fishing bags he made were being used by New York photographers.

Another Eyewear brand made of wood

Some of you will have seen my post about Kult by now, but with the summer hitting some parts of the globe (even in the UK) I thought it is the time yet again to highlight another sunglasses brand which also makes frames in handcarved wood. Their slogan, “Experiment With Nature,” exemplifies exactly what the Portland, Oregon label is about – handcrafting eyewear with locally sourced wood. Not only that, but Shwood are finishing the frames with Carl Zeiss lenses, some of the best glass on the market.

‘Beaded Edition’ sunglasses by Mosley Tribes

Mosley Tribes presents a beautiful special release of their Lyndel frame. The Beaded Edition comes with great hand-crafted details. Patterned after Native American hand woven blankets, both temples on the black Lyndel are individually hand laid using brightly colored ceramic beads.

Yes, I have to admit I have a thing for any ethnical inspired items…

The sunglasses will be released in very limited quantities in July 2010 at Oliver Peoples boutiques in Soho and Sunset Plaza, as well as select retailers.
