Save The Children Peace Tank
Fashion is undoubtedly becoming more and more influenced by political and social causes around the world. Look no further than Barack Obama's appearance at Paris Fashion Week for proof. And why not? It can be a great way to express your views and create dialogue without even speaking a word. For something a little different than your standard message t-shirt, wrap up in a scarf like this one by Sir Alistair Rai. Spotted on countless celebrities, they are one-of-a-kind pieces made by hand by artisans in India, and each one is hand-painted with a Hindu prayer and words like "peace," "hope," "love," and "karma." With all the war in the world, why not choose to wear one of these beautiful scarves and support peace in your own little way this winter? You really can't go wrong! Price: $128Who: UnusualThreads was the first to add the Sir Alistair Rai Green Peace Dupatta Scarf to the Hive.
Peace signs aren't exactly associated with the most fashion-forward among us, but the icon that characterized way too much of my middle school wardrobe is coming back, and if this isn't music to your ears, you might have to take it up with Barneys Creative Director Simon Doonan, whose 'Hippie Holiday' campaign has renewed many a shopper's love for the iconic symbol and the culture it represents. So what does this mean? Aside from dizzyingly psychedelic store windows, there are tons of peace sign-emblazoned items to be found, from wearable to edible and everything in between! And Barneys isn't the only retailer who knows it- Free People, DOGEARED, and Felix Rey have put their own spin on peace with tasteful handbags, jewelry, and decor.
