HOLST + LEE, revisited.

  I’ve written about Holst + Lee before, a definite Urban Socialite favorite, and wanted to share their latest collection.

VOID

Sylvio Giardina SS14

In addition to godaddy deleting my entire website (really… I would rant here but I am still recovering from the annoyance of it all), things have been pretty crazy over here lately, hence the sporadic posts.

Caliber Collection

Interesting concept: These bangles (complete with real diamond accents) are made with the serial numbers from illegal guns and the metal from bullet casings taken off the streets by the Newark Police Department. 20% of the proceeds from each purchase  fund future Gun Buyback Amnesty programs in Newark, NJ.

Joulik

I love these gorgeous designs from Brazilian label Joulik. Breathtaking detials! This summer has been crazy. I was really looking forward to NYFW… but my work schedule is probably going to get in the way of attending the shows. I’ll do my best to cover my favorite emerging designers!
