‘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.

Ipad and Laptop Portfolios by Kenton Sorenson

Kenton Sorenson produces natural leather and handmade products which age just perfectly. My two favorite items are the Laptop and Ipad portfolios. In the first one, there’s enough room for a laptop, a magazine and some paper work. The price may look a little steep, but this is a piece that you won’t regret buying in a few years time.

Conch and Dieter R6 handmade wallets by Six Eight Seven Six

The final installment of the R6 collection for summer 2010 is the release of two luxury wallets in premium quality vegetable tanned Italian leather. The Conch (zipper wallet) and Dieter (card holder) are hand made in England, are both available in three colours ways with contrast interiors and have quality embossed branding.

What I like the most apart from their quality and colours is the ‘Enjoy without restraint’ notice found in both versions…
