Lee Coren-1-Design Crush


Urban surroundings and the need for fresh air both inspire the bags and scarves that Lee Coren creates. The pieces feature handmade screen printed fabrics and original prints from scenery captured on a camera. Lee sources and produces locally and ethically, using cruelty-free, vegan friendly materials, and when sourcing leather replacements chooses high quality, italian-made, cotton-backed microfiber polyurethane. It always feels good when love something that’s doing good for the environment.

Shwood-1-Design Crush


As it turns out, I have a bit of a problem with sunglasses. For some people it’s coats or shoes or jewelry, but I’ll just take all of your sunglasses thankyouverymuch! Eyewear company Shwood has designed a pair utilizing oxidation, brass inlays are subjected to the chemical reaction in-house to create one-of-a-kind versions of their best selling frame – the Camby.
