With all the efforts of change and awareness being made these days, many of us understand that doing your part to help Mother Earth is more imperative than ever. Foundations and fund raising for everything from saving the whales to helping our fellow men have been popping up in every form, including fashion! Introducing: EDUN, a line of contemporary and fashion forward pieces that are comfortable, versatile and stylish and made of organic materials like silks and cotton. The simple and clean lines of this industrial-chic label skim the body with sumptuous knits and fabrics and are presented in a classically neutral color palette of blacks, whites, greys and creams. The best thing about EDUN is that not only do they offer a variety of beautiful dresses, tops, tees and outerwear, they use their publicity and proceeds to bring more awareness to the current plight and hardships that many African countries are facing, as well as educating us on how rich a land Africa truly is. While EDUN garments definitely have an air of earthiness like many ethical fashion lines, it is a brand that has a truly contemporary design aesthetic and believes that the popularity of high fashion and giving something good back to our world are two things that easily go hand-in-hand. Check out some of EDUN's organic pieces and see how you can help make the world a better place, one stylish garment at a time. Just clock on the slideshow to see some favorites!
All I wanna do is ... sink right into that seat. Doshi Levien's Paper Planes line of reading chairs are designed to help you do just that -- they're contemporary like the bulk of their esteemed furniture projects, and their asymmetrical shape was actually crafted specifically for comfort, making the chair as sophisticatedly practical as dad's leather LA-Z-BOY, just more smooth and sleek and effortlessly less burly. And this chair can actually recline in more ways than one. It was actually paper folding that fueled the creation of this swanky lounger. Furniture design may have been pushed against the grain in the conception of this piece of art, but upon further inspection, the lines and angles of the Paper Planes chairs seem to flow together in a way that that makes sound, geometric sense. Upon even closer inspection, you'll notice that some chairs actually shimmer with Swarovsky crystals that trace the graph paper-like grooves along the chair's many planes -- talk about baller. Unwind and relish in the creativity of the planet's edgiest reading chair while really indulging yourself by sitting on upholstery laced with the world's most famous crystals. We'd all probably be reading a bit more if we had a reading chair like one of Levien's Paper Planes. To afford a piece, however, I might just have to take your money.
