A retro-styled handbags and clutches collection created by the London based Hong Kong born designer Flora Leung. This is Matter Matters, a new launched line that will officially “hit the stores” next year, on S/S 2013.

Summer is here, so let’s zoom again on WFTS – Waiting For The Sun – the French sunglasses brand, which is actually an innovative concept of contemporary eyewear design. Three friends teamed up in 2007 and launched a line of wooden sunglasses, conceived to impact on the price tag at no more than €150! …Not bad at all, considering that WFTS‘s models are entirely handmade, framing Carl Zeiss quality lens.
Read DOY’s older post here to know more about such a vintage charming brand, fusing the Californian summery appeal with the sophisticate Paris style, and give a look to the slideshow below to unveil part of the S/S 2012 collection:
Each pair of glasses comes in a recycled cardboard packaging and wrapped in a limited edition foulard, exclusively signed by a contemporary artist.
She’s young, she’s talented and she’s one of the new London College of Fashion‘s graduates definitely to watch. This is Liron Kliger, an Israeli born jewellery designer, who after traveling in Barcelona, Paris, Milan and Tel Aviv is now based in London.
Her latest project developed from a fascination with snakeskin and infatuation with catwalk pieces motivating her to create her own interpretation via snakeskin inspired bangles designed for the catwalk.
Quirky, colorful, and extremely eye-catching, Liron Kliger‘s bangles perfectly match the goal of her research, aiming to create unique pieces encompassing the form and essence of the material used, and look ideally suited for a fashionable summery outfit.
