Happy 2010 humans! We made it through another decade. I've just barely gotten used to winter and I'm already imagining what I'm gonna be wearing this summer...same deal every year. Hopefully I'll be hitting the beach a lot more, attempting to hang ten for real this year. Beach bum Alexandra Cassaniti (who strictly designs for the warmer weather), recently released a preview of her Summer #4 range- good timing for those of you in the southern hemisphere. Have you guys seen the vial necklaces she did with Unearthen? Pick from a hand forged glass amulet filled with compost, crude oil, holi powder, sand, or a little bit of the Pacific Ocean. I like the hot pink holi powder the best.
After the pink eye, newsprint, and money print bags, I've come to expect every collection of Alexandra's to have killer bags. This time around, there's more neoprene then ever and it's made its way into this perfectly-sized beach bag that comes in white or ocean camo blue as well as a netted version perfect for the sand.
The more "practical" satchel is pretty amazing as well. I say practical because it has a long strap and 11 pockets apparently (you know a girl loves pockets in her handbag), not to mention a good bike bag option.
I like the shape and color of the sandblasted Face It sunglasses. Mirrored X lenses=radical.
