i discovered The Stowe while browsing Craft & Culture, who are one of my sponsors – please have a gander on the right and support these amazing shops! designer Molly Spittal makes my kinda bags: simple, functional, leather, and with minimal hardware and detailing. this was the kind of bag that i was looking for in NYC, but in the end i got a beautiful Clare Vivier messenger (which i am not complaining about). if i was on the market for a new bag i would certainly be considering The Stowe. you can buy them at their online shop or through Craft & Culture.
you know that feeling you get when you’re super excited and nervous? say, before a date with someone you really like… or after you’ve just done something amazing like bunjee jumped or skinny dipped (with that someone you really like). heart palpitations might be the right word. WELL. i just got heart palpitations looking through the pieces at Building Block. god, it feels like i’m a teenager in love or something.
the Nancybird S/S 2013 collection is probably my favourite so far. the new line is inspired by the coastal landscape of Australia – bright daisies, lobsters, warm sand, weather ship ropes, sparkling sea and sunshine. those lobsters make me smile.
Golden Ponies is a line of handmade leather goods and shoes by designer Erandi Gutiérrez based and hancrafted in Guadalajara, Mexico.
this is how to sell me something – pair nice accessories with beautiful bikes. done! sold! shoes & bags from radley london, images from their spring/summer 2010 catalogue. love that little scottie in their logo…
tennis hagan long strap bag – Hand made in Canada, cut from one continuous piece of waxed and edged latigo leather. Closure is a custom brass buckle designed by Tannis Hegan. Comes with a handmade cotton bag.
there was a point in my life where bags were to me what shoes are to some women – i usually couldn’t pass up buying one. but i’ve been using the same leather bag for the past 3 years (quality over quantity, eh?) and don’t really plan on trading it in until it falls apart at the seams. that being said, i’m pretty sure i could be swayed by valhalla brooklyn
