Floral patterns, warmer weather, shorter hemlines, Benadryl; spring means a lot of different things to different people. For me, spring is synonymous with green and it begins as the grey days wane in the wake of new growth.
This year, I’ve decided to indulge less in allergies and more in revelry. With that in mind, I curated a collection of green goods to help you do the same!
Clockwise from top left: Saturdays Boardshorts; Organic Fair Trade Green Tea by Rishi; Ankle Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied; Handmade Emerald Satchel by Cambridge Satchel Co; Handmade Boat Mocs by Quoddy; Notebook by Archie Grand; Custom printed malachite Silk Scarf by Cisthene; Raw emerald Earrings by Erica Weiner; Geranium leaf Body Balm by Aesop; Bracelet by Miansai; Handmade Sunglasses by Sheriff & Cherry; Pantone color iPhone Case by 11+
The accessory label Miansai offers some pretty phenomenal products (and not just because they make a 14K solid gold iphone case). Launched by designer Michael Saiger, Miansai developed a quick reputation for it’s signature nautical bracelets which embody an odd mix of the nostalgic and the timeless. Of course this depends somewhat on one’s aesthetic, but with a plethora of colorways available to choose from, it is not hard to find the perfect piece.
Burgundy Leather with Rose Gold Hook
Navy Rope with Silver Hook
These bracelets are crafted from either custom military-grade rope or premium Italian leather straps. The most impressive aspect of this bracelet is the metal hook, which is pounded, formed, stamped, and polished by hand. Naturally this process leads to minor variations in size and contour, but that offers an added character and personality to each piece. All in all, It certainly beats scooping some plastic off of a conveyor belt.
Check out the video below which highlights the handiwork which goes into making the “Hook” bracelet.
