As ganja becomes more mainstream, designers are pushing past stoner fads and tie-dyed stereotypes to present an influx of fashion-forward, cannabis-inspired, ready-to-wear items for the trendiest of tokers. Whether you’re on the hunt for holiday surprises or gifting yourself with a well-deserved treat, this curated list of weed-flavored fashion favorites is sure to excite.
Casual and cool, Alexander Wang’s fall 2016 collection mixes tweed and metal-pierced leather with embroidered corduroys while paying homage to the marijuana leaf via intarsias delicately placed on little black lace dresses, mini bucket bags, and mohair coats and mini skirts.
Pack your joint or spliff in style with this smart unisex tamper necklace made of solid brass with a hand stamped Soothsayer tag. Choose from a cylinder, square, or bullet-shaped tamper. A dapper keychain version is available as well.
After graduating from Parsons School of Design at the New School, Gelareh Mizrahi set out to start her own line with luxurious yet mischievous vibes. Her Stoned collection boasts a matching python-skin clutch and pin set featuring a ganja leaf, smiley face, pizza slice, brain on drugs, pouty lips, bloodshot eyes, and french fries. A perfect choice for the playful and ultracool fashionista.
As worn by the stars of MTV’s Mary + Jane, cannabis activist Bianca Barnhill, and Rihanna, Los Angeles designer Jacquie Aiche’s Sweet Leaf collection symbolizes “freedom, happiness and healing—all in a simple, beautiful form.” Handmade in the USA, these snakeskin leaf patch clutches, fanny packs, lighter cases, and mother denim shirts pair well with Aiche’s sweet leaf pavé diamond earrings, rings and necklaces.
