Glancing at my Instagram feed from the past couple weeks, there's a common theme emerging: lines, stripes and multi-colour! Here's how it went down …
Above: this bag is most definitely on my wishlist. Handmade in Kenya, available from Lov'edu.
Colourful cables at Whitechapel tube station.
Tanabata Fukinagashi decorations at the Southbank Centre. Check out the ongoing Festival of Love.
Window grills needn't be boring! I spotted these art deco ones in Hackney.
I always enjoy seeing how other makers roll so it was a delight to go to the Hackney Downs Studios open studios event last week. Here: suede that Hyun K Shin of Tiny Track turns in to intricate fashion accessories.
This chair is everything! Have a seat at the Wahaca mexican market eating branch in Waterloo.
As I mentioned in a recent post, about resonance across the global south – this bag is reminiscent of the one at the top of this post but, I have a feeling that this one was made across in Latin America … Or could it be from around the Europe/Asia boundary? Spotted at vintage store Blitz London.
Another vintage store find – these woven-back, red-seat chairs at GASP in Liverpool.
What's been in your line of vision this week?
