Proof that eco-conscious accessories can look just as on-trend as mass-made ones, Collina Strada’s line of bold bags fuses pops of color with modern silhouettes. Designed by Hillary Taymour, each piece is made by hand in New York City using eco-conscious materials.
Svilu’s silhouettes may be borrowed from the boys but they’re also designed with the modern woman in mind. Founded in 2012 by Britt Cosgrove and Marina Polo, the company seeks to revisit the fundamentals of a woman’s wardrobe by offering timeless staples that are mindfully sourced and locally produced.
LAURA LOMBARDI JEWELRY
Laura Lombardi makes her eponymous line of jewelry by hand in Chicago. Lombardi takes vintage and repurposed materials and retools them to fit her aesthetic, which favors themes like repetition and appropriation.
Berlin designer Elise Ballegeer’s recruits German craftswomen to produce her clothes on a small and personal scale. Keeping production close to home not only keeps carbon emissions down while supporting the local economy, but it also allows Ballegeer to keep an eye on maintaining her standards of quality.
We’ve coveted Tamara Fogle’s military-inspired bags in the past, so we’re excited to see them up close and personal in the Green Room this year. Each piece is proudly made in the United Kingdom from reclaimed materials, including antique German flour sacks, vintage military-tent canvas from Prague, and recycled Indian quilts and leather.
