Solar-powered vintage brooch by Lost Values, solar fashion, solar accessories, eco-fashion

The Solar Vintage Brooch by Lost Values deftly marries the old and new, fusing newfangled solar-charged technology with the time-honored tradition of handcrafting. Conceptualized by Elena Corchero, founder and director of the Scottish design firm, the clover-like brooch is furnished with solar cells and LEDs, as well as temperature and movement sensors. The result: A winsome piece of high-tech style that charges itself in the day, then emits a subtle, ambient glow at night.
