Milk & Paper

do you ever daydream about living an alternate life? the one i often have is that i reside on some beautiful island in Greece (100% influenced by this book) and i bake my own bread and drink wine at 11am and carry fruit in a straw basket and i’m perpetually tanned and i just wear natural cottons and linens. no? just me then. well - that’s how i felt my life could be like when i saw these beautiful bags and baskets by Milk & Paper.

Shapes by Deapapa

i’ve always loved creative tote bags, but to be honest i never actually really used them. until i moved into my office this past month. now i find myself needing to tote shit everywhere. before i worked from home, and when i went out i just used my handbag. but now – packed lunches, power cables, bags of apples (yeah i don’t know either) … the life of a freelancer is full of stuff hey? so i smiled to myself when i saw these new totes by Verónica de Arriba of Deapapa today. i should get my hands on one.

the collection is a play on geometric shapes inspired by Memphis milano movement and all the things that inspire me daily. 6 models of organic cotton tote bags, screen printed with water based inks & made from a sustainable crop in a Fair Trade factory.

buy them here.

Tony Chestnut

Tony Chestnut is a line by Canadian designer Jill Sawatzky, “a one women show from start to finish.” this is her SS14 collection, which looks like it’s already pretty much sold out. i love those interesting quilted jackets - made from deadstock faux leather from the 70s.

i make clothes for you. clothing to carry you through your day. clothing to make you look and feel good. clothing to express yourself in.
