(Think beaded Maa­sai hand­bags and bold brass jew­ellery.) The project also in­cludes ex­clu­sive de­signs from Stella Jean and Dan­niJo, and the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit a va­ri­ety of ini­tia­tives in de­vel­op­ing com­mu­ni­ties. What’s not to love?

I love the idea of some­thing so con­ser­va­tive be­com­ing com­pletely un­done.” – Canadian-born, Lon­don-based designer Er­dem on the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind his lush and lav­ish spring/
