Gravel & Gold Goods
Boob Tote $87
Gravel & Gold is a San Francisco-based shop of kitschy wonders that's serious about knowing (and supporting) the artists behind the wares they stock. Their in-house line G&G Goods is nothing to scoff at either. Bare it all with their hand-printed and -sewn canvas Boob Tote, which adds a little thrill to those routine activities, like the commute to work or venture to the grocery store. Details like an interior pocket and heavy red leather straps make the bag as high quality as it is provocative.
Speedometer Official Bezel Bracelet $214
Inspired by the bezels found on Rolex's iconic Oyster Perpetual series of watches, Speedmaster Official's unisex bracelets are made in Italy from marine-grade stainless steel in a range of colors.
Right Hand Charm Bracelet $245
A cheeky take on a classic charm bracelet lends a sinister elegance to costume designer Gillian Steinhardt's Right Hand Charm Bracelet. Or perhaps it's just a nod to the idea of an old reliable, but either way, the piece will start more conversations than a pile of icy diamonds.
Maslin & Co
Zebra Towel $225
Ditch the threadbare Technicolor rags lying around the linen closet and invest in a sophisticated zebra hide beach towel from Maslin & Co. Complete with its own leather carrying strap, this is an accessory to show fellow beachgoers you mean business with your seaside spread.
Bamboo Boxer Company
Bamboo Boxers $25
We salute these shorts—for those who may want a reprieve from the serious world of neutral-hued boxer briefs, these provide a loud and proud answer. Full-fitting in full-on patterns, Bamboo Boxers are made in Hawaii, and are "made with Aloha," an idea that shines through in prints ranging from Kona Burgundy to Waikiki Beach Blue.
Wool Dryer Balls $36+
Herbalist Brooke Petry throws a great deal of charm and passion into the unlikely trade of making all-natural woolen dryer balls. The idea behind the balls is to replace the chemical effect of dryer sheets with a reusable alternative. Devotees swear by their power to soften clothes, remove static and reduce drying time for energy efficiency.
Rocket Pop Pendant $2,265
Designer Alison Chemla creates fine jewelry with a funky twist. Her Rocket Pop pendant is crafted from 14K gold, hangs on a substantial but delicate gold chain and adds a festive touch with an ode to a classic summertime treat.
Danh Vō Baggu Tote $40
Vietnam-born Danish artist Danh Vō is known for his conceptually driven sculptures. Often incorporating political or historical references, Vo’s work—like this limited edition Baggu tote for Marian Goodman Gallery—speaks to his exploration of the power of symbols through the subtle application of an American flag.
Leather Luggage Tag $80
Created by two transcontinental friends who spent ten years mastering the fine art of printing onto leather, this calfskin luggage tag with wicker pattern perfectly complements your favorite suitcase and will truly make it your own.
Low Hanging Fruit Tee $35
Sibling duo KOIVU calls their approach "youthful surrealism" but there's doubting this is solid design that's pretty damn funny. Their tongue-in-cheek humor and graphic knack shines through in the Low-Hanging Fruit T-shirt, which paints a bright picture of an otherwise slightly dismal category.
Rhino Laces $29
Created by wild land firefighters, Rhino's Unbreakable Boot Laces make a mighty claim for a small but significant gear staple: they cannot be burned, torn, cut or destroyed in any way. If some Herculean effort proves them wrong, their guarantee covers a replacement.
Brass Hair Combs $130
Wsake hair combs put a sleek and modern spin on an old-fashioned ladies' vanity mainstay. The brass picks come in charming shapes like Looking Guy, Tulip, Square and Lace, and with time the patina will darken to a golden brown color.
Psychic Lapel Pin $5
No matter what kind of power of intuition you may posess, this bright little lapel pin jazzes up your blazer just enough. The purple enamel crystal ball declares the title of Psychic beneath it, and we predict more than a few quippy conversations will be started as a result of wearing it.
Watermelon Scarf Blanket $184
Potipoti combines summertime kitsch and whimsy with subtle sophistication in its watermelon blanket that can also serve as a festive scarf. The fun continues with a natural leather carrier, which doubles as a belt.
Micro Floral Ball Cap $48
Many a summer lover's go-to capmaker, FairEnds presents a soft micro floral style with a pattern that's aptly called "Head in the Garden." Flowers in your hair, flowers everywhere—but only with a close look.
Very French Gangsters
Kids Barrettes $31
Very French Gangsters makes eyewear for kids (with a few selections for mom) but anyone can go a little bananas over their pop-art barrettes. Pink lips, PanPan alerts, eyeballs and plain two-color bars round out the fun plastic collection.
