Since 2009, Brooklyn designer Michael Wright has hand-stitched yarn in various patterns onto men’s organic-cotton tees, hoodies and henleys. For his latest collection, the Los Angeles transplant took inspiration from his newly adopted neighborhood of Bushwick, capturing its industrial spirit through muted colors, raw-edge appliqué hems and soft, worn-in fabrics. Michael Wright Collection Jefferson sweatshirt, $89; Wyckoff long-sleeved tee, $60; Troutman button-up shirt, $110; all at michaelwrightcollection.com
Drawing on her ayurvedic medicine training in India and extensive knowledge of plants (she studied botanical science at England’s University of Derby and worked as a horticulturist at the Planting Fields Arboretum on Long Island), New Yorker Dalia Monasebian created a line of all-natural beauty products that boast health benefits. These creamy kohl eyeliners contain castor oil, a natural form of Latisse that promotes lash growth. Available in five colors, the sticks glide on seamlessly, feature a pointy tip for precision and even double as eye shadow. We’re also smitten with the sleek packaging, which contains a pop-up mirror inside the cap. DALiiA Ayurvedic Couture Herbal Kohl Eyestick eyeliners, $28 each, at Whole Foods Market, locations throughout the city; visit wholefoodsmarket.com
Although we love the idea of having a pair of comfortable shoes at the ready for rescuing stiletto-beaten feet, foldable flats are now a dime a dozen (and are not created equal). So we were delighted to come across these sturdy, supportive boat shoes and sandals, which offer the convenience of roll-up footwear in a uniquely chic way. FootzyFolds Julianna sandals, $36; and boat shoes, $64; both at Zitomer, 40 W 57th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves (212-956-6000)
TONY’s Shopping & Style editors come across a ton of fashion, home decor and beauty products every day, but these items really held our attention. This week, we were particularly impressed with local designer Michael Wright’s Bushwick-inspired menswear, DALiiA ayurvedic eyeliners sold at Whole Foods, Footzyfolds roll-up women’s shoes, Hanes leggings that convert into tights and May 28th’s custom watches that transform your Instagram photos into wearable art.
