Anastasia Komar’s New Leather Goods Nod to Everything from Karl Springer to Superstudio

The wavy line is everywhere. It's in the puddle-shaped mirrors that have become ubiquitous on Instagram; it's in the amoeba-shaped tables that have popped up in millennial interiors. Remember the scalloped trim on that Collectible booth last spring? (Related: Remember fairs?)

The Cool Girl Cape Town Jewelry Brand At the Top of Our Wish List

Called Waif, the line is a labor of love by former ad woman and self-taught jewelry designer Gisele Human, who we've been assiduously following on Instagram, waiting for news of a new collection to drop.

A French Creative Studio Gives the Silk Scarf a Majorly Cool Upgrade

In the last few years, the silk scarf has seen a major upgrade from studios like Massif Central and A Peace Treaty, but one of our favorites on that short list of cool is Suprême Bon Ton, the French creative studio whose fourth collection is as playful and stunning as past iterations. “Totem” features a variety of blue, teal, and cream-colored organic shapes that appear to be stacked, wedged, and floating around the silk canvases, following the brand's longtime obsession with rocks and geology.
