Say hello to your new favorite statement accessories. Designer Andria Crescioni started her jewelry collection in 2013 and it has since grown into leather handbags and various handmade objects. Influenced by traditional craft techniques and the spirit of the American west, Crescioni is the synthesis of old and new; the past and present. They hand tool all their leather goods in-house and manufacture ethically with skilled craftspeople in the Los Angeles area. The result: a signature sculptural leather aesthetic that is refined for the modern woman.
Neighbour is one of those boutiques where you could spend a long time just standing in it, wishing you could live there. New to Vancouver's Gastown neighborhood, the sleek, modern shop is a block away from their brother men's wear boutique Neighbour. Focusing on quality over quantity and trends, they stock the pristine shelves and racks with designers such as Acne Studios, Lemaire, Christopher Raeburn, Thakoon Addition and Organic by John Patrick.
Daniela Jacobs, Parsons graduate and the designer behind ARC, is inspired by colors, textures, shapes and sounds found in nature. From jewelry to home objects, her collection explores and experiments with wearable and functional sculpture. She sees ARC as a concept, not product, and at its core, a body of work that seeks to encourage mindfulness and individual creative expression. Made primarily of porcelain and metal, her pieces are seasonless and bold in their simplicity.
