Parasite Eyewear

Sporn Star 1 is the first model that embodies completely the spirit of Parasite: Sport + Fashion = Science + Fiction.

That's why many athletes love it. It is emblematic of Parasite, but nowit has to be replaced by foldable frames, and easy-wear shapes.

Message Bean

How do they do it? Believe it or not, each magical Message Bean grows with an actual word lasered onto one side and an image on the other. Simply remove the foil top and bottom of the can (for drainage), and add a 1/2 cup of water to the enclosed soil -- in just 1-2 weeks, the bean will poke through the surface, revealing the special message! The bean then sprouts into a small plant that can be kept in the container or replanted. A simple and original way to send a greeting.

Jeung-Hwa Park

Born in Pusan, Korea, Jeung-Hwa Park studied fashion design and worked in that country as a designer prior to coming to America.

Park uses a contemporary adaptation of the ancient resist dyeing technique in combination with the ancient practice of felting. The knitted fabrics are bound, tied, stitched, cramped, or folded to prevent certain areas from absorbing color. By marrying the spirit of Yin and Yang, traditional technique and modern technology, the sense of hand craft and machine knitting, Park creates innovative wearables that bring a new sculptural and textural sense of aesthetics to the art of knitting.

Kangaroo Apron

The big pocket of Kangaroo apron usually functions as same as any other apron's pocket. It can be used as a mitten when we need to pick up a hot cooking ustensil. The pocket has a protective padding inside so that our hands can be protected from heat and only the top part of the pocket was sewed for smooth movement.

Interesting ... and pretty unexpected.

While we have seen several attempts of soft light shades, InnerTube really interrogates the relationship between a material and its application. In this case, the soft and flexible rubber shade is maintained in shape by the light source itself. In effect, the black shade is stretched around the circle glass tube, creating an unusual void in its center, while diffusing a large contrasting white aura of light. Contact between the two elements is also made possible as the tube remains warm.
