The Accessories Link List 12.8.2010


♥♥ All-American sneaker brand Converse is teaming up with REM Eyewear to release a line of glow-in-the-dark shades. During the day, the frames will look like frosted ice, with 100% dark UV lenses. What’s dope about these shades is that the materials soak up the sunlight, then using the solar power to glow when it gets dark. The first drop will be two unisex styles: the Half Stack (a modified aviator) and the Line Up (a traditional rectangle shape). Retail value will be approximately $58.

♥♥ We’re loving the jewelry from New York-based designer Ayaka Nishi, whose pieces are inspired by nature. Each collection has its own nature-inspired theme – bone, coral, honeycomb, sea urchin, even insect wings! (Just to name a few!) Check out her Spring/Summer 2011 look book.

♥♥ Back at TOMS shoes for the holiday season: Charlize Theron’s Africa Outreach Project Shoe! There’s two new hues for the season, and don’t forget that proceeds benefit the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.

♥♥ Bow-tie brand Distinguished Cravat released a World Aids Day Collection in honor of Joseph Jefferson, an HIV/AIDS activist and friend of the brand who recently passed. Fifty percent of the sixteen-piece collection will go to Lolisa Gibson, an HIV/AIDS educator, to help her continue her worldwide travels to educate the public about HIV and AIDS. The collection is available now at the Distinguished Cravat web site.

♥♥ There’s so much we’re loving at colette this month! First up, Odile Gilbert adds a pearl accent to her hairpin. An easy way to glam up any ‘do!

♥♥ We’ve also learned (thanks to colette) that UK designer Giles Deacon has teamed up with Happy Socks for a limited edition capsule collection.  A portion of proceeds from the seven pair-drop will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

♥♥ Last (but certainly not least!) item we’ll pass onto you from colette; Converse and Swedish label SNS have a new collab to pay homage to “Lovika Vante” mittens – traditional accessories in Swedish culture!
