Gucci Goes Green with Glasses

May 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

Launching in August, Gucci will be releasing their new line of glasses made mostly from castor oil seeds and special acetate. These two ingredients will be taking the place of earth-polluting traditional plastic. This will decrease CO2 emissions by a TON.

The designers at Gucci are collaborating with “eyewear giant” Safilo (yeah, the guys who hold the rights to the Marc Jacobs, YSL, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen frames). There will be different male and a female selections, as well as different colors and shades. It gets better; the packaging? Also eco-friendly!

Can’t wait. What do you think?

With Grace & Gratitude,

Canada College Fashion Show 2011: Some Like It Haute

May 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

A small collection of my personal favorite styles from the show.

Both of these garments were inspired by the current exhibit at the Legion of Honor; Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave. Both of these garments are created using paper or recycled paper products.

These were some of my favorite looks from the “Some Like It Haute” Canada Fashion Show 2011. It was the third annual show featuring beginning designers from all over the Bay Area.

Some inspiring designs from Popomomo’s Fall 2011 line. All clothing is made in LA and mostly made from hemp, Lyocell, old fabrics, and organic cotton. Way to go, Popomomo. I love it.
