Asia Ragland designs beautiful high-end cast metal jewelry for the line Feliks+Adrik. The line includes a charity collection that benefits non-profit organization Two Wings, which works to rehabilitate and provide employment opportunities to at-risk youth and survivors of sex trafficking.
Bones & Feathers is a unique line of jewelry pioneered by Natalie and Cole. A mix of the tough and gentle, their bangles are made out of beads and charms cast from shark, snake, and fox vertebrae, in addition to the original feather and flower creations. “We’re both interested in indigenous cultures and how they repurpose materials into something awesome,” Natalie explains. “For me, it really brings an awareness of the animal,” Cole adds.
Shipley & Halmos, launched in Soho, NY in 2007, was never an ordinary men’s fashion line. Its eccentric and witty founders, Sam & Jeff feel “clothing should never be a disguise, but rather a means to reflect honestly the character of the wearer.” The brand goes beyond clothing to limited edition furniture, art materials, games, music, and books that reflect the same wit and integrity of the design that characterizes their clothing. Notable collaborations include Uniqlo and S Publishers.
