Hides and Chic
You’ve made a decision. Those “finding yourself” years are over.
You’re done slumming with sucky jobs for minimum salaries. You’re over getting cheap frills at those dime-a-dozen teenage trend shops. Settling for tacky silver tone is not an option. So even if those statement pieces are a little pricier you won’t get bold feet – especially if the cost comes with a cause.
Meet your accessories match with the bohemian style of Rfavela.
Roommates Claudia Cox, Jennifer Sheridan, and Evangeline Lilly created the line of apparel and accessories while Cox and Lilly were working on the hit show Lost. Favela means "shanty town" in Cox's native Brazil, and soon she was creating jewelry that evoked the raw artistry found in those communities.
Make a strong stack-ment with a series of braided leather bracelets boasting earthy red coral, turquoise, or a surprising spray of rooster feathers. Wrap your style around a sterling silver chain plaited into leather and finished off with organically-shaped Tahitian pearls. You won’t mind feathering your hair when we’re talking about a headband or clips featuring a striking waterfall of plumes.
Rfavela also offers Sheridan's super sexy handmade bikinis and a sleek T-shirt line designed by Sheridan and Cox. Two percent of all sales is donated to TaskBrasil, a group dedicated to helping abandoned street children in the country.
Meaning every piece is far more than just a fair-leathered friend.
And you’ll never have to be a braidy cat again.
Rfavela is available on its new website. Rfavela jewelry can be found in LMS Boutique, 2909 Lowrey Ave.,and Little Black Dress and Bikini in Kahala Mall.
