Our Spring 2015 Howkapow Photoshoots!

2015 has seen us bring you beautiful new products every week! With so many lovely pieces to choose from it can sometimes be difficult to work out what sort of scroller we are after, but we generally try to get a good mix of products from across the shop – a little homeware, a little kitchenware and a little jewellery.

The scrollers below are a perfect example of this. We have started to include more hand-drawn elements into the scrollers to add interest and depth, often picking up on key design features in the products themselves. We try to keep things simple but strong and stylish and this season featured the work of Sian Elin, Darling Clementine, Kristina Klarin and Xenia Taler. Which one is your favourite?

Yo! Statement Buggy!

A few weeks back, kids company Cosatto got in touch to see if we wanted to try out their new Yo All Star Pushchair. At 10 months, our baby son Rolo was in need of a good, lightweight buggy so we thought we’d give it a whirl. The cheerful, starry design and bold colour palette really appealed to us, and we weren’t disappointed when the pushchair arrived. (Tell me more…)

Reytan Jewellery

Denise J. Reytan is a Berlin-based jewellery designer and artist with a great love for bright colours, found objects and fascinating materials. Her work is: wow.

For the past 12 years she has been using jewellery to explore various themes in her practice – among them the question of conventionality; the concept of precious versus non-precious and how we attribute intrinsic value to objects and their importance.

DENISE JULIA REYTAN Colliers

This all sounds nice and intellectual, but possibly you – like me – don’t really give a monkey’s unless the work is up to it. And my word, her work is up to it! (Tell me more…)

Our Autumn & Winter 2014 Photoshoots!

Call us nostalgic, but we were looking through our scrollers the other day and we felt it had been too long since we shared them with you! We love getting creative in the studio (we dedicate afternoons at the end of the week to snapping and styling our shoots) and try and experiment with new colours, formats and styles.

Here are some of our scrollers from our Autumn & Winter 2014 Collection… which one is your favourite?
