Laurence Carr Launches Eco Design Brand

MILAN — Laurence Carr’s sustainable epiphany occurred in 2014, while working with a top leading interior architecture and design firm in New York City. At a time when the fashion industry was largely viewed as the culprit of the ongoing environmental crisis, Carr realized her own peers were ignoring their industry’s contribution. Conversations about an ecological approach to designing interiors were nonexistent between her colleagues, manufacturing reps, architects and designers, she reminisced.

“As a global citizen who has lived on four continents, as a designer, and as a mother of three children, I wanted a career that had a more meaningful legacy than simply beautifully designed spaces and products.

Premium contemporary brand Duvetica is rejigging its offering in hope of striking a balance between its positioning as a brand complementary to designer fashion and its performance-leaning spirit.

The Kids Are Alright: Filipino Streetwear Brand DBTK Goes Global With This Epic Collab

From the streets of the Philippines to the rest of the world, the DBTK and H&M collaboration is one for the books.

These days, the attention span across generations is greatly compromised. In the conversation of commerce and consumption across multiple disciplines, there now exists a challenge to capture the all too important attention in a world inundated by the flashy and fleeting. A mindless scroll on social media or an aimless scan of life outside will reveal a saturation of information that is overwhelming to say the least.
