Hunter Gatherer’s Girl Power

Calling All Bohos

Our fave online retail discovery is a creative combustion by two of the Heights’ top indie stops: Hello Lucky and Iko Iko (formerly La Camella). Cue respective proprietors artist/curator Teresa O’Connor and puppeteer/yoga teacher Camella Clements, who have both carved out niches with their sustainable, American-crafted and consciously sourced fashion-fueled wares.

A sampling of consciously sourced wares from Hunter Gatherer

Their first collaboration arrives this month via the newly minted Hunter Gatherer, an online portal for the boho glam gal who likes to shop small-batch threads and accessories, a customer who manifests a global point of view and cares where and how her fashion is made. Among the arresting wares currently offered by HG — which boasts the tag line “Shop Wild in the Modern World” — are the buttery Patricia deerskin fringe pouch made in a hometown factory in Smithville, Texas (democratically priced at $138); Made’s handsome Deco-inspired Geo leather and brass necklace, ethically handcrafted in Kenya from locally sourced materials that are cast by age-old techniques in a workshop that empowers its employees (we love the packaging — recycled kanga and kitenge fabrics); Venice Beach label All Things Fabulous (which fabricates its collection locally); a cheeky line of leggings and tops, including the Creatures of the Night skinnies emblazoned with raccoon visages; and the rock ’n’ roll vibe of the Marina Crystal Point necklace, fabricated by the HG girls themselves from reclaimed leather and ethically mined Arkansas quartz (a mere $48), which is chic and avoids being too New Age-y. If you prefer instant gratification, pick up your HG online purchase in-store at either Hello Lucky or Iko Iko, and shop some more.

Home, chic home.
