Canadian brand Elisa C-Rossow releases a new collection made entirely out of apples
Yes, you read that correctly. Canadian brand Elisa C-Rossow’s Maroquinerie Collection is made from waste from apple juice production. Looking for a sustainable alternative to traditional leather, the designer discovered apple leather, a bio-based material produced using the leftover pomace and peel from the fruit juice and compote industry. It goes without saying the accessories are certified fresh, organic and vegan. Additionally, each item is made to order, which not only means zero overproduction, but ensures that every piece is has that limited edition cachet.
Dr. Martens partners with Marc Jacobs
If you’re looking a dose of nostalgia, look no further than Dr. Martens’s new collaboration with Marc Jacobs. The nineties-inspired collection brings together the iconic brands, reimagining two Dr. Martens footwear styles with an extra chunky sole and a patent crocodile leather. Available in both a boot and a shoe, this partnership feels extra-special as Marc Jacobs dressed his models in the combat lace-ups for his notorious 1993 runway show. We can smell the teen spirit from here.
Swarovski’s new collection is a celebration of colour
For creative director Giovanna Engelbert’s second collection with Swarovski, she was inspired by the jeweller’s European heritage. In a press release, she notes, “I wanted to dive deeper into a love affair with Austrian arts and crafts, notably the influences of the Wiener Werkstätte and Gustav Klimt while bringing in a modernity to the organic ways shape and form can be represented within their tradition.” The new assortment features maximalist styles for both men and women and offers a playful take on the timeless brand.
