The Hoodie of the Future

British clothier Vollebak makes garments for today’s superhero.

Tucked away in a jumbled mini mall off Florida street—the pedestrian shopping drag filled with mostly junk—is Plata Nativa, Negra Luna's marvelous boutique dedicated to the craftsmanship of South America. For more than 20 years it has produced Mapuche-inspired bracelets, necklaces, and belts woven from strips of native cloth and adorned with silver and stones like rhodochrosite and pampa onyx. Many of the pieces are under $100, but ask to see some of the unusual antique creations stashed away on an upper floor, such as the chacanas, festive Bolivian belts decorated with hummingbird feathers, which can run into the thousands. At Galería del Sol, Local 41, 860 Florida; 54-11/4312-1398; platanativa.com.
