Essie Letterpress Limited Ed.

when i was at Kamers vol Geskenke last weekend the best tent had all my favourite cape town creatives & shops in it – Skermunkil, Artymiss, Good Clothing, Mr & Mrs etc. Essie Letterpress was one of them – a stationery company i’m always excited to see at markets & events in and around Cape Town.

i was especially taken by their recent collaboration with some of my favourite local designers including Jordan Metcalf, Daniel Ting Chong, Katrin Coetzer and Adam Hill amongst others. each artist was given a month to illustrate that they interpreted in their own style. i regret not buying a print that day, but the good news is that City Mob is holding a sale on the range at this very moment – including the rad calender that includes all 12 prints.

you can also shop the rest of Essie’s range here – i have the Come Back To Me print on my wall, it’s rad.

Syrup

you may remember that i’ve posted about Japanese mail order clothing line Syrup before. i had a gander at their latest ranges, which include an Alice in Wonderland line and a Moomin line – as well as their Autumn Range. i can’t really tell you much more than that since google translate isn’t exactly helping me learn Japanese. you can get a pretty good idea of what they offer by checking out their digital autumn catalogue, or just by clicking around the site blindly like i did. it’s fun, trust me.
