Lazy Oaf Laughs

Facebook Twitter Pintrest

We love hearing the sniggers coming from the stationery department right now. Can only mean one thing. Lazy Oaf haven't lost their touch when it comes to delivering hysterical cards. From small beginnings hand printing t-shirts in her dad's East End garage eleven years ago, Gemma Shiel's super cool pop graphics label has built a huge following of loyal 'oafs' and 'oafettes', including us. Slightly odd, never for a moment dull and always borderline too rude, the world of Oaf still has us laughing.

We're all partial to a bit of gift-wrapping geekery here, but Lucy is truly the gift-wrapping queen. Her parcels always a work of art; she even sets up a gift-wrapping station in her house come Christmas. But look at this. Our new crafting obsesssion. Rosette Art by Cathe Holden: Instructions and Papers for Beautiful Rosettes to Share, Wear, and Display. We think we might just manage to steal the crown with this at our disposal...

in spirit and in style

Facebook Twitter Pintrest

Dreaming of far off places? Let this lovely lot from womenswear newcomer Rabens Saloner take you there. In spirit if nothing else. And frankly we're happy with that because this is a collection that says I've been to far-flung exotic places but I'm perfectly capable of slotting into everyday life.

Maybe it's because designer Birgitte Raben Olrik divides her time between Copenhagen and her most beautiful house in Thailand. We can see inspiration from both. Oversized striped mohair jumpers, super cool gold lurex slouchy chinos and a pallette of pink and grey lend the laid back Danish feel while the loose fitting linen pieces and tie dye silk have jetted in from some dreamy sun drenched location.
