While everyone else was watching the game … we were scouting out the ethical fashion scene in Brazil and came across this must-have for summer.
Inspired by the vibrant sights and sounds of Rio de Janeiro, these handmade bracelets combine the spirit of Brazil with the rich heritage of the two Parisian designers behind Hipanema.
Each Hipanema bracelet is made from multi-colored threads, chains, ribbons, seashells, pearls and quartz crystals, all connected by a magnetic clasp to form one statement cuff. It is the perfect accessory for summer, a bit of bohemian flair even for those who aren’t lucky enough to be sunning themselves on Ipanema Beach.
And all ethically handmade in Rio, supporting local artisans … what reason is there not to show your summer spirit? Enjoy some images from their Summer 2014 Lookbook!
