Zeke's Lunchbox is the creation of two Australian designers, Venus Mackey and Jupiter Rich. Their collection focuses on quirky “anything plastic” streetwear with hand detailing such as embroidery, knitting and cross stitching. Many pieces also include found and recycled objects.

I think the lunchbox-inspired hair piece above is a must-have, and truly unique!

Implications - Though the use of recycled materials, or upcycling, has been accepted as a staple in the design industry, unabashed upcycling is a fairly new development. This refers to the use of recycled materials that are meant to look recycled, providing eco-conscious consumers with a way to let the rest of the world know that they care about the planet.
