Capsule Collection Launch

This August marks a year of partnering with brand ambassador Tiffany Marie Hill and we are thrilled to continue to bring more sustainable fashion options to the market! Focusing on the best results from the work of trunk sale market research around the country, testing fabrics, and customer feedback, we are launching a multi season/multi climate Capsule Collection.

These are editorial photos of a group of pieces that are sustainable as f*ck. While that is a cheeky expression, it’s energy and attitude is earnest. This collection stands out as being made with 100% sustainable fabrics and sewn fairly in the United States. (Most will be made in San Francisco, though some could be made in LA.) They will be offered in genderfluid sizes Small to 3x . Go here to order now.

When the Soul Sings: Tiffany Marie Hill

You can easily see how beautiful she is, when gazing upon Tiffany Marie Hill in Swankety Swank or otherwise. What you may not know, is how strong and big and pretty her heart is on the inside.

The Hemp Launch to Heal the World

While that’s a lofty headline and sounds like a claim similar to the 90s diet pill fen-phen being great for your health, I am telling you the truth. And these pants will not be recalled by the FDA.

At this time last year, I rebranded Swankety Swank and launched the new website with the Hemp Collection. After a year of sewing samples, traveling around the country, getting opinions and testing fabrics, I am certain that the launch of the hemp fleece trousers are going to plant a seed that will change everything. You will never know a pants fabric that is more rugged, more cozy, smooth on the outside, “fleecy soft” on the inside and as long lasting as these. And you’ll only find them exclusively from Swankety Swank.

But first, here’s a photo of Rad in a Hemp Duster that is also being launched because doesn’t he look cool? When I told him at our photoshoot that I’d have him wear the duster with a tee that I cut up and would scrawl a positive and semi rebellious word that epitomizes his generation, he called it out. I knew it was perfect. That intuitive knowing from being in a high vibration creative flow state is always genius.

Why the word “feminist” is semi-rebellious is a story to be unpacked by better writers than I, and it goes along with the idea of hemp saving the world. The alignment of equality for women, equality for all humans, protecting our Earth, and healing it is all tied up with us- EACH of us as individuals! Continue reading

Quality of Style: Claudia Kussano

The words “magic, sophistication, and modern” describe the jewelry designs of Claudia Kussano. When the elements of the Earth, an artist’s eye, and a maker’s mastery are combined, the quality of style is evident.  Aligning with the values of Swankety Swank, Claudia  seeks to evoke a symbiotic awareness of the world and our spiritual surroundings. See her work in the following images by Mercedes Abraham on Tiffany, our Brand Ambassador and my photos on the visit to Claudia’s beautiful shop in the Mission.
