While shiny brass and gold may have become on trend in 2014, silver is back for 2015. What particularly caught my eye, however, was this brand new company that is making clothing out of silver, including, yes, underwear! Arjuna AG is "a luxury protective fashion company" that designs and sells silver-plated clothing that promises to not only look good, but to also protect:
"Positively-charged silver ions create a conductive shield that blocks harmful electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other electronics, kills germs and bacteria, regulates body temperature, reduces inflammation and soothes skin sensitivities. The material acts like a second skin to create an inner capsule of health, beauty and pleasure." What's not to like?
- Arjuna Bikini Briefs - $170
"The Bikini Briefs provide ultimate comfort and protection for travel and urban life. Plated with 18%-by-weight pure silver fabric, they block electromagnetic radiation from cellphones, while also eliminating germs, odor, and temperature imbalances."
- Arjuna Jewel Boxers - $175
"The Jewel Boxers protect the male reproductive organs from cell phone and computer radiation.They also kill 99% of germs and bacteria and eliminate body odor, making them an ideal accompaniment to travel, exercise and urban life on-the-go."
Not your standard metal wok, this shiny silver interior pairs with a copper outer to "heat up incredibly fast" and cook beautifully well. Stunning to serve right out of as well.
New at Horne, this handcrafted Italian cocktail shaker is not the shiny stainless kind, but the buff warm pewter kind: "crafted from high quality, lead free pewter that is food safe, FDA approved and requires little or no care making them suitable for everyday use."
- Kenza Moroccan Silver Pouf - $205
Made of faux leather or real, a silver pouf glows with fresh radiance and pairs with other warmer colors perfectly. Perhaps the main appeal of this new use of silver is it's ability to mix. It's a combo thing.
