SKATE or BUY! (or both!)

June 21st was Go Skateboarding Day but we here at M.I.S.S. encourage skateboarding as a daily form of exercise ;) . Don’t know how to skate? Don’t own a board? No prob! How about rockin’ some beautiful bracelets and earrings made from 100% recycled skateboards!

These unique accessories crafted by Portland designer, Maple, have no paint or designs added and each handmade item is one of a kind. The bright colors and designs created from grinded off graphics make abstract patterns found nowhere else. Maple leaves some of the original concave deck shape in the pieces rather than sanding them into perfect circles. These bracelets and earrings are sustainability at it’s finest! You can purchase these way-awesome items right through Maple’s Etsy store.

H&M is going going back back to Sweden…(sorta)

H&M is going home to Sweden for an exciting new project. Nylon Mag reports that the Swedish superstore recently tapped Stockholm-based up-and-coming artists Cassandra Rhodin, Cecilia Carlstedt, and Fredrik Tjernström to design limited edition T-shirts.

The H&M ART BY collection is made up of tunic-style tees and razorback tanks embossed with graphic illustrations such as Rhodin’s chic caricatures and Carlstedt’s enchanting inky watercolors—and we bet will warrant as much fuss for the homespun talents as the household names that prefaced them.

Word is these drop in July. For store locations, see
