NEW ZEALAND SPOTLIGHT
We traveled to New Zealand to find the country’s coolest emerging designers and indie boutiques, and let’s just say we found our tribe. We’re so excited to share it with you!
SHOP OUR EDIT
Fashionkind wants to change the way you think about fashion. Taking its name from the phrase “fashion for humankind,” this Philadelphia boutique only stocks its shelves with ethical and sustainable luxury designers and artisans, each of which have been carefully curated by founder Nina Farran. The result? Cutting down on environmental impact without having to sacrifice your style.
This multi-faceted men’s shop and creative space is located in the historic Third Ward neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. Fun fact: it is home to the award-winning Third Ward RiverWalk and the Milwaukee Public Market. So, we’ve sold you on the area now hear us out on the boutique. Milworks features a well-curated selection of men’s apparel, footwear, apothecary, books, magazines and every doo-dah in between. Fair warning: this is the kind of place you can’t just leave with one amazing piece but rather five.
Since its foundation in 2003 by husband-and-wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung, Poketo has grown from a small start-up into a creative hub and online destination. A lifestyle brand born out of the desire to infuse the everyday with aesthetic intentionality, Poketo has carefully curated a collection of design-conscious goods meant to cultivate a creative lifestyle. In addition to its online store, Poketo has three LA-based retail locations in Koreatown, Culver City, and a pop-up in Little Tokyo, each of which hosts art exhibitions, workshops and other events that serve to foster the local creative community and share their philosophy of “Art for Your Everyday.”
