Role Model

Where Vancouver - - Shopping -

At Obakki, the ac­ces­sories have fringe—ben­e­fits, that is. The Van­cou­ver­based de­sign house is just as de­voted to creating beau­ti­ful cloth­ing as they are to phi­lan­thropy. Al­though the chic ap­parel has been spot­ted on celebri­ties like Gwyneth Pal­trow and in the pages of Vogue and Elle, the Scarves for Wa­ter pro­gram is get­ting just as much buzz. Once 500 of a lim­ited-edi­tion scarf se­ries are sold—such as the new “brick” shade (pic­tured)—a clean-wa­ter well is built in a re­mote African vil­lage. Now that’s a state­ment piece. Find yours at www.obakki .com.—Jill Von Sprecken
