WHAT: Nathalie Trad Turquoise Eliferia Clutch
WHY: If you’re typically the wallflower type, this turquoise resin clutch will be the conversation piece that gets you out and about at that next cocktail bash. Nathalie Trad’s classic box silhouette doesn’t clash with the mother-of-pearl geometry inspired by her Middle Eastern heritage, but adds just enough flair to take brunch (and the world) by storm.

WHAT: Q&Q SmileSolar Series, RP00J006Y
WHY: Being chic is hard, but being sustainable and chic can prove to be even harder. Luckily, Q&Q brings you watches that take color blocking to the extreme...and they're environmentally minded, to boot! This ticker is battery free and uses the sun's rays to charge, so you’re never going to be late for those beach rendezvous and alfresco picnics in the park. And don’t worry about water damage to this timepiece: it’s water resistant up to five barometers. The watches are also a part of The Table for Two project, so proceeds help deliver school meals to children in Africa and Asia. Saving the world, one watch at a time!
