Started by Yvonne Hung, an urban planner/artist with an eye for design and making extraordinary products with ordinary materials, The Harbinger Company strives to rework everyday objects into something interesting. Each design is hand-drawn, computer drafted, laser cut, and hand assembled by the designer, and then boxed in locally printed packaging.
This Ladder necklace is one of Hung’s may fine designs. Made of bamboo with gold-filled hardware, it is approximately 16 inches long but hangs like an-18 inch chain. The ladder pendants hanging from it almost look like chain links and give it a nice urban feel. A nice twist to your usual fringe necklace.
Made of bamboo and dangling from a 16-inch, 14-kt. gold-filled chain, this stylish pendant creates dimension with its 3-D cubes zigzagging in a horizontal line. This piece stands out to me because it looks like a modern piece of art shrunken down to jewelry size. It comes in a warm honey color, suitable for jeans and a tee or an outfit for a classier occasion. Give it as a gift, or wear it yourself — this Horizontal Honeycomb necklace by The Harbinger Co. is a nice twist to your average pendant necklace.
One way you can be fashion forward and green this summer is with a pair of Kayu “Rawa” sunglasses. With its sleek and polished frames, these spekkies will work with any summer dress, beach wear, or your favorite pair of jeans. Whether you’re rocking them at a lunch date with a girlfriend or just giving your eyes some TLC, you can be sure that you’ll look fly and be doing your share in saving the environment.
These shades are not only made with all natural bamboo, but with every purchase, Kayu will fund a sight-restoring surgery. Their commitment to this cause is because even though “80% of blindness is curable or preventable, 36 million people in the world are needlessly blind,” says designer Jamie Lim. With their chic design and promise to a worthy cause, who wouldn’t want to purchase a pair?
If there’s one thing I love in a summer shoe, it’s one that not only makes my legs look long and lean (granted, most high heels do that for you), but one that makes my legs look tan. Well … at least not so white.
The perfect shade of champagne gold does that for pasty gams. Like the shimmery textured leather on Elaine Turner’s “Cole” peep-toe heel in champagne. I love the bamboo detailing (yes, bamboo, you eco-conscious fashionista!), both on the handmade heel and the bamboo-like buckle. The Cole is just neutral enough to go with anything, but the mix of textures and gilt details will have everyone asking you, “Where’d you get your shoes!” (Don’t you love it when that happens? It so makes my day.)
And don’t let the 4-inch height fool you. It’s got a memory foam padded sole supported by a built-in platform bottom, so you’ll stay comfy and chic.
