w600_194746__ing3836

For the art geek lifstyle…a new accessory that will get you “charged!”

Focusing on modern accessories with smart technical features, Stockholm-based design house Holger has released their 2015 collection.

Inspired by vintage luggage design and handmade to fit the modern lifestyle, the collection of bags are created using a recyclable fiber material that is fully vulcanized and waterproof. Three styles in black, blue, green, brown or orange offer a sleek leather finish and come equipped with a rechargeable power-bank, designed to power laptops, tablets or phones.

What we love about this product:

bunnyAll Holger bags are equiped with a  power station so that you can charge your device whenever, wherever.  The capacity of the power station to recharge your smartphone 2-3 times and your tablets up to 1 time. That means no freaking out when you are in the middle of an important project and your tech is ready to die.  It’s like always having  a little bit of the bunny in your pocket.

eShakti Revisits The Vintage Style of Bonnie and Clyde

by Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

459px-Bonnieclyde_fThere has been a longing fascination with Depression Era bank robbers Bonnie Elizabeth Parker  and Clyde Chestnut Barrow. The two outlaws and their gang captured the attention of the Americans people during the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1934. They later had their reputation revived and cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, which starred Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. With A&E’s recent (and summarily slammed) TV remake this past week, it’s no surprise that not only are this couple’s antics in the spotlight once again, but their fashions are as well.

eShakti, the premiere online retailer of retro-inspired, customizable apparel, decided to highlight a more charming side of this pair and came up with some interesting pieces that can help you channel the aspiring-actress-turned-criminal  that will make you look simply….shall we say… arresting?  Add a headpiece, rouge those lips, and you’re ready to break hearts!

Fashion Star Friday: Under Cover Hoodie NYC

hoodieEarlier this year Gia On The Move’s Contributing Beauty Editor, Chris Paleo attended a B:Scott Collection kick-off event at New York’s Lower East Side retail boutique, The Hoodie Shop for NBC’s Fashion star, Brandon Scott.

Chris & Brandon

Suffice it to say, it was a fabulous event and I’m not sure how it ended up not making it to the blog right away. But as under cover “chic” never seems to go out of style, and ’tis the season (almost), we thought we’d give you the mini. You can check their website for more. Frankly, we love his stuff! And the B:Scott Collection is not just What’s Hot Now, but What’s Hot ALWAYS!

image-1 image-2……………………………………………..The Hoodie Shop, co-founded by Aleah Speranze (also the creator of Hoodie Girl) and designer Brandon Scott share a love for hooded apparel and style that balances fashion and function. As a buyer, Aleah was drawn to Brandon’s edgy but casual aesthetic.  Aleah explains, “Brandon has this way of reinventing the hoodie season after season.”

The Hoodie Shop is a new kind of experience, one that exists at the intersection of clothing and culture. A “retail anomaly” (New York Magazine), the clubhouse morphs from retail space to movie theatre to intimate venue which includes a secret DJ booth and carries pieces by breakout designers, to vintage finds, jackets, outerwear scarves and one-of-a-kinds available nowhere else.
