The Human Factor

Chromosome Shirts

Chromosomes are pieces of coiled DNAs - the blueprints of our humanness.  It contains the genetic information that allows us to function, grow and reproduce.  

Xenotees' designs are as unique as the chromosomes they print on their apparel.  Each shirt is hand-screened with their own blueprint of utmost care.  So, get ready for a 'chromosomal crossover', known to be the time when chromosomes interact or recombine.  

Wear one and you'll soon be headed to the throne of casual fashion eminence.

An Apple a Day

Fruity Earrings

Apple, the most cultivated tree fruit.  You can eat it raw, bake, juice or ferment it.  Perhaps dip it in chocolate, then sprinkle with crushed nuts.  Sounds delicious.  I recently found out, you can even mix it with chamomile tea to make tea.

It is loaded with nutritional benefits too.  We heard it million times, 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away'.  That famous proverb dates way back in 19th century Wales.  Apples are packed with anti-oxidants, vitamin C and fiber.  Research also suggests that it reduces cancer.

If those are not enough reasons to make you eat the crunchy produce, maybe you can start by wearing a pair in your ears.  Did I mention it's a great stress reducer too?  

You can't help but cheer up wearing these slices.

Meet Zoe

Bent and Beautiful
She's edgy but don't be mistaken.  In every curve, she is oozing with femme fatale.  Quaint as the historic state she hailed from, which is Pennsylvania.  She is fearless but fun loving.  Rock and roll is her cup of tea but she doesn't mind dressing up for an afternoon tea at all.

Always up for the challenge, she can adjust in whatever angle.  If you desire her to be a bangle, so be it she says.  Yearning to fancy that neck?  She'll dangle daintily as you wish.  Be honest, for she is not a fake.  Genuine sterling silver is her make.

Her name is Zoe.  Amy made her to last forever.

Silver Linings

Atypical Crochet

Crochet, one of the world's earliest and most popular craft.  History dates it way back before the 1800s.   With a single hook, a fabric is created from threads of fiber.  Scarves, mittens, , afghans and doilies are its common end-products.   

Young designers today have appropriated their modern take on this ever evolving craft.  The medium no longer remains restricted to traditional yarns.  The outcome are not just the usual fiber accessories.  

Welcome to the 21st century crochet - where the hook does more than 'throws'.  We're seeing crochet's silver lining even brighter.  

In the meantime, let me have those silver earrings.

Dressy Details

Denim Dress

A four-seasons dress?  You bet.  And that's just the start.  How about a towering neckline that can be clasped shut with one snap.  Or a beautiful handmade ceramic button as an accent.   Don it with a belt or without.  

Worried it's still too cold to guise such an outfit?  Why not pair it with high boots, tights or your favorite coat.  And when the sun comes out, pair with your favorite flats or heels.  Clever little details in every angle indeed.
