Writing style with a pen and ink: London stationery store Choosing Keeping

By
Photography/ Ya Tien. Cover Image Courtesy of Choosing Keeping. Less than half a century ago, "shopping stationery store" was still a pastime that people loved at the twilight time after school and work. Nowadays, "stationery" has vaguely entered the sunset industry. The word is formed in the shadow of 朦胧. Fortunately, when the digital wave invaded, the true touch of Capricorn's papers once again became the choice of many contemporary people to capture the daily scenery. Near the famous Columbia Flower Market in East London, young store owner Julia opened Choosing Keeping in 2012, gently picking up the glory of the twilight, and collecting it as a glimpse of the sharpness of the pencil tip and the table. Born and raised in France, Julia was a short-lived student in Tokyo. Japan's delicate obsession with pocket items broke into that time, which in turn influenced Julia's unique taste. In the history of stationery design, France and Japan are just two glittering stones; world-famous romantic, hopeless fetishism, exquisite and practical design... This is not only the culture of the two countries. The impression may be the reason why Julia chose Chooing Keeping to land on Columbia Road and become a flower market neighbor. Pushing open the indigo door, Choosing Keeping is like a buddy butterfly that has been hurriedly left by the passers-by. It blooms with the beautiful aroma of the classic study. Creating a store with an aesthetic perspective on life seems to be abstract, but Julia has no restrictions on the sharing of space between flowers and stationery, and the eyes of customers. The petals are covered with fan-shaped wooden pencils and round flowers on the window sill. It is in harmony with the dry flower paper town on the side; the harmonious and harmonious arrangement exudes the right sense of life, and in addition to the stunning, it brings out a strange familiarity that comes close to the desk. The stationery industry is actually on the rise - it may sound strange when everything is moving towards digitalization - but I think stationery can bring a sense of security, after all, a pencil won't cause anything strange; and stationery always hooks Childhood memories... Stationery makes people feel good and heartfelt. When you pass the world, if you really care about the time of each piece, you will definitely see the pen as a portable companion. The biggest item in Choosing Keeping is a wide variety of pencils: the Palomino Blackwing, which is well-known by both animators and architects, has been featured in a variety of colors, and continues to introduce new Swiss brand-name Caran d'Ache pencils. The rare Czech label Koh-i-noor triangle pencils are all available; and many Japanese people familiar with the Japanese red-green pencils, plaques, and Mitsubishi are generously presented in a boxed manner, like one piece from the old days. The gift is as pleasant as surprise and surprise, and the original design can really surpass time and space. Stationery notebooks, art calligraphy props and desktop items that are inseparable from pens are naturally a selection of Choosing Keeping. A variety of envelope letter paper groups carefully protect your old-fashioned sentiment, and the Japanese, English and German stationery carefully selected in the store form a unique set of painters; the bundled bundle of integrated wrapping paper is as eager to start as Reluctant to use, slowly spilling the glass sand leak of macarons fine sand, leaving the most appropriate record for the illusion of Choosing Keeping.

Drinking coffee, visiting the gallery, and buying designs at the 120-year-old printing house: Antwerp store pocket list St. Vincents

By
What kind of place does Photography/ Maya. bring coffee geeks, trendsetters, art lovers and fashion designers together? Antwerp's St. Vincents is hoping to gather such a multi-faceted stronghold here. In Antwerp, influenced by the surrounding cities of Amsterdam, Paris and London, many creative ideas floated in the city, and St. Vincents was born in a creative atmosphere. St. Vincents' space was formerly a 120-year-old old printing house, surrounded by unfinished brick walls, hanging with a contrasting and individual modern fashion, and a comfortable antique sofa in the corner, faintly distributed. The atmosphere of "home". It is packed with costumes, old-fashioned furniture, art, design and stationery. In addition to the shops at the bottom of the space, there is a coffee bar on the side of the passage and a gallery space on the upper floor. Henri Delbarre and Geraldine Jackman, two founders of the St. Vincents concept store, originally worked as economists and lawyers; like a big turn in life, the two are committed to creating a creative space – This story has to start from Amsterdam. Geraldine, who was originally an international tax attorney, met Henri while working in Amsterdam. At the time, he was a lawyer and he faced a complex case, and the challenges and pressures he could face were conceivable. The two people who like design, shopping and travel have developed from a common understanding to a new one, and hope that life is more creative and social, so St. Vincents sprouted in Antwerp. At the beginning of St. Vincents's initial operations, Henri and Geraldine found that most of the stores were constantly focusing on the sales level; over-selling products sacrificed the atmosphere of a space for “good things”. "Whether providing multiple choices, must we abandon the relaxed and cozy atmosphere?" In the face of many stores' exquisite products, the two thought about it. In addition to the styles of the various brands, they also want to have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the time of shopping – whether it is the actual purchase or the gaze, enjoy the moment when each object and space resonate with each other. So here you may be amazed at the "small" clothes in the store. St. Vincents treats each piece of clothing as an individual, and the clothes have their own unique space. In addition, the store also plans to open a coffee bar to provide drinks and meals, attracting many visitors, so that visitors who pass by or visitors who want to have a cup of coffee in the afternoon can immerse themselves in the design atmosphere. . Home selection is another highlight of St. Vincents, not far from the coffee bar, there is a large bathtub, and a variety of bath care products at the rear – there is nothing more suitable for home. What? The door on the side takes you to the place where the soft light and the stationery are coexisting, just like the study in your home. In addition to these unique home-style appliances, it is difficult to leave the metal objects in the glass jars. It is from Brooklyn's famous tool design brand Poglia, and is one of Henry and Geraldine's favorite design brands. Each of the Poglia knives is handmade, and the knives placed here are also tailor-made by Poglia for St. Vincents. Unconstrained with the surrounding costumes, each object and object have different connections, St. Vincents's everything is a seemingly random but ingenious space; trying to combine the design of European cities, Henri and Geraldine uses this old printing house space in Antwerp to allow design and living to ferment here. ...

INSPIRATION|From CHANEL, GUCCI to HERMÈS, the season's branded Catalog design

By

The joy of a HERMÈS or CHANEL bag may not be due to their expensive price. The legend that "secret styles are always in the small black houses of sales, and a few talents can see them" has cast a part of the bag style "exclusive temperament - "exclusive" and "exclusive" are high-end brands. The ultimate coolness that can be brought. But one may be more exclusive than the rare leather Birkin bag - whether it is HERMÈS, CHANEL, PRADA, GUCCI... high-end boutique dedication, season playful catalog, never sent or not.

This is like a children's book, only a thin 8-page catalog, rounded corners, strong colors, cute graphics, and the name is simply called "Objets Hermès" (Hermes). But in fact it is full of very simple childlike energy. The illustration in the catalog comes from Henning Wagenbreth, a German artist born in the 1960s who grew up on the East German side of the Berlin Wall that had not yet collapsed. His work is full of playfulness, freedom and adventure. Wagenbreth loves to use saturated tones, creating color blocks and graphics to tell stories, and the work is full of retro posters. The font used in the illustration is called "FF Prater Serif". The slightly irregular, bold and full of handmade fonts is also Henning Wagenbreth's work, which is in line with the temperament of his illustrations. Also worth mentioning is the subtle touch of this catalog, which is between the smooth and frosty surface; a closer look reveals that the paper is made of a special plastic film, and the fine print is clearly and fully restored...

For lovers who are obsessed with design, establish a private taste of habitat: hidden in the city's alleys, "hermit", Hong Kong ANHHORET

By
I remember that when I traveled to several countries in Europe for the past two years, I had a very deep feeling: no matter which city you go to, there is always a commercial street full of fine products from various countries or a variety of choice shops; although different urban buildings have their own The style is unique, but the streets that are completely swallowed up by the commercialization of big companies are really suffocating. The heavy pressure of pressure drove me to always go to the alley, eager to see something that the real locals wanted to present. In October this year, I visited Hong Kong, which has not traveled for a long time. When I was a child who lived here for a year, I naturally felt a bit of emotion for this city. I still remember the city’s crowded high-rises and the disappearance of the sky. Take a trip to Central to see the commercial streets that every international city should have. Then, "Where should I go?" Looking at the building in front of me, I thought about it. Guided by local experts, away from the so-called extreme prosperity, heading towards Queensway West, I finally found ANCORET in a hillside street filled with snack vendors and traditional markets. "Anchoret", the hermit, the name and location are really complementary, and it is clear that it is to stay away from the dust, and to be located in a more earthy place - for people passing by, or as famous as my passengers It is a surprise. ANCHORET is a three-storey compound store. On the first floor is a coffee bar with exquisite desserts and coffee; on the second floor is a small corridor, several chairs allow people to sit down and read the book; the wall is made into a window to display the goods, and the black frame is used to outline the appearance. Art gallery-like atmosphere. In the end, the small seating area can drink coffee, read books, and overlook the first floor and huge decorative chandeliers. On the third floor is the main exhibition area of ​​ANCORET. Firstly, the old antique ornaments are printed in the eyes. Then the minimalist counter display jewelry and simple fragrance and home decoration. The wooden large wardrobe seems to add a little warmth to the whole store. Zen; the moving line design seems to slowly guide the guests into a private large dressing room, allowing people to walk freely and appreciate the different brands of clothing. Designer furniture is also sold here, cleverly integrated with the entire interior style, retaining the characteristics of each brand, but fully coordinated with the simplicity and softness of the space. I was fortunate to see the owner Nicky, who had a very confident and generous temperament and shared the story of ANCHORET. . First of all, please talk about your experience and background. What is the opportunity for you to set up ANCHORET? I was originally doing graphic design work, and another partner, Onkit, was doing work on fashion. Because Onkit has always wanted to open a store of its own, let more people know some small but high-quality clothing. A trip to Beijing, a coincidence, saw that there was no small-handed shop or niche designer brand in China, which prompted us to start our first store in Beijing. . The name of the store is named after "hermit". What is the reason? What is the belief in this store or the concept that you want to convey? We have always liked the clothing store hidden in the streets of Japan - you will find surprises when you explore the alley. We also hope that ANCHORET also has the meaning of being quietly hidden in the city. So when the first store was specially selected to be located in the courtyard of Beijing Hutong, there were only local old residents and some small restaurants nearby. ANCHORET's idea is also to stay away from the busy business district and hope to create a more private alternative to the visitors. . What is the standard for ANCHORET? What are the characteristics and relevance of each brand? The standards and characteristics of the choices are often based on personal preferences and aesthetics, far more than other reasons - of course, there will be commercial considerations. But most of the goods are designs that we feel very appreciated or like, because we believe that if we don't like or don't understand them, we can't express their value to the guests. Therefore, each store directly reflects the owner's preferences and tastes. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. Hong Kong's choice of stores is not much longer. What is the difference between ACHANORET and many stores? We believe that the taste of each store owner is unique, the same brand, or even the same product, in a different space, there will be another collision. Rather than saying that ACHANORET has something unique, it should be said that each store is unique. . From the opening of the store in Beijing to the current branch in Hong Kong, what is the difference between the two stores? Beijing's store is a pure clothing store, it is more focused on clothes; Hong Kong store is a space that mixes the elements of life - this is the biggest difference between the two stores. The Beijing store and the Hong Kong store have different ideas, but they all have one thing in common. They are specially chosen to deviate from the bustling commercial areas and insist on the idea of ​​“hidden in the city”. . In your opinion, what is the difference in fashion or art between Beijing and Hong Kong? Beijing has a deep history, culture and tradition, and the pace of life is slow, allowing people to focus on doing things or creating. Hong Kong is a relatively modern and prosperous city. The city is very mature and has a very convenient life. People are in a hurry. I think the difference between the two places is that in Hong Kong you can easily buy a wide range of fashion goods or artworks, but there is no good creative atmosphere. In Beijing, the relative literary atmosphere is relatively heavy, and it is a place where artists and designers are born. . What are the next plans or expectations? ...

Fashion is shaped by him! The legendary name in fashion history, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" exhibition

By
Looking back at fashion history, there is such a master who once dismissed the contemporary male designer Coco Chanel to say "he is a truly outstanding womenswear designer"; the more famous Christian Dior Praise, "If you think of Haute Couture as a symphony, then the conductor is none other than our other designers are the musicians who listen to him." Mr. Dior is the founder of the same name, Cristóbal Balenciaga. . Starting in Spain, he opened his first fashion store in San Sebastián in 1919. In less than 20 years after its founding, he conquered all the Spanish dignitaries, and then moved to Paris and became one of the most famous brands in fashion history.

Miniature and joyful little sculpture on the body: Jewelry experiment artist Georgina Trevino

By
The abstract and interesting twisting line is a bitter and sweet in the midsummer. It is a graffiti that only you know in your notebook. It is a momentary image of the building's temporary mind. It is an intimate secret between a friend and himself. It is a Morse code to interpret your emotions. . This is Georgina Trevino, a Mexican American artist born in San Diego, Calif., if she only defines it with a jewelry designer, she is too narrow; what she feels in her work is not "design", which sounds meticulously planned. The beauty of the painting does not even need to discuss what beauty is not aesthetic, but the experimental and flowing spirit that can be seen. In the thousands of photos in the online world, her eyes were attracted by a pair of red rubber earrings she made, and she found this bold and avant-garde brand. The more in-depth browsing, the more I discovered that Georgina Trevino has already appeared in many magazines.中—— Her work always draws a finishing touch to make the whole picture and shape come alive and interesting. She has been looking for creators in different fields, working together to develop new and interesting ideas, to reach out to different media, and to expand beyond the comfort circle – just like the lines of her work. She kept "deformation". Playful and a bit of a dramatic style, Georgina Trevino's "experimental" philosophy continues to try and learn, which is the key to her creation and diversity. She graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor's degree in jewellery and metalworking. She attended a year's jewellery workshop in Mexico City during her school hours. Her outgoing personality allowed her to work with friends and design studios in various fields, and also promoted her in 2010. In the year he founded his own brand of the same name - Georgina Trevino Contemporary Jewlery. Among them, "Contemporary" points out the immediacy and experimentation in her creation. The colors and structures such as toys and candy-like colors can smell the cultural background of her beautiful ink and the baptism of Bauhaus. The use of media has established a style that is unique to oneself. This time I contacted Georgina and talked about the creative process and inspiration of this girl with a joyful element. Although separated by a sea, her energy is not weakened, and the words and sentences give inspiration and motivation. . Georgina Trevino What kind of message does the brand try to convey? My brand is the product of all my interests, life and inspiration. In life, I always pay special attention to color, shape and architectural elements, which have inspired me to create. My work is like a small sculpture – a small sculpture formed for the body and space – with more purely artistic elements than ordinary jewelry, each representing a dialogue and a certain declaration. To express the meaning of it more completely, I have to use different materials to make them. . How is inspiration translated into real products and communicated? Inspiration comes from architecture, geometry, fashion, and anyone who performs contemporary creations. From each piece of work you can see that I try to combine colors with different media and techniques. Each piece is made by myself. This is the way I must and honestly express. I want to be a confident, forward-looking person who knows how to appreciate crafts, art, fashion and design; they care about the changes and renewals of things and resonate with my work. . Do you have a favorite creative medium? I think the main idea of ​​my brand is to constantly experiment with various media. Although silver and brass are used often, I am always looking for new materials and techniques, as well as more different combinations. I like cement soil and plastic very much, but recently I use soft clay. These elements give me more space to create, sometimes they are in the process of making experiments, and even develop unexpectedly beautiful results on their own, bringing me a richer experience. This is a dialogue with the work, and it is also the most meaningful aspect of the process behind each work. . What artist is the one that inspired you the most? There are so many people who have inspired me, but if I have to choose a person, I think it is Le Corbusier. This French-speaking Swiss master is not only a representative of modernism, but his work is deeply involved in many fields of art and literature. . The experiment makes your creation uninterrupted. What do you want to try next? Many of my works are actually very neutral, but most of them are more feminine. I am currently working on a special plan based on men. I am quite looking forward to it and will share it with you soon. In addition, I hope to use my own jewelry as an inspiration, and instead to make a large-scale sculpture creation, the medium will use iron and powder coating as a combination. . What is my most satisfying series so far? My favorite and most enjoyable series should be my most recent series, The New Collection. Among them, I combine many new technologies and materials, such as recycled plastics, cement soil, soft clay, hardware and plastic components, printed plates, brass, silver, kinetic energy technology and rich colors. Inspired by medieval furniture, Bauhaus geek, Kinetic Art and wild colours, I have a deep feeling for this collection because it is very close to my personality and the aesthetics I believe in. . What kind of faith do you hold on the road of creation? I believe that "failure" is a good thing, it makes us strong. I think that as long as people who are engaged in the field of creation, whether it is a good or bad experience, can make us a better artist, never give up easily! In addition, "rejected" is also a good thing. Although it is uncomfortable, it can always grow in constructive criticism. I have suffered many rejections, but that has driven me to think about my weaknesses. I can't be afraid to convey my thoughts and works, and always let others see myself, so I especially encourage you to strengthen your imagination through cooperation. And the exposure works can bring unexpected opportunities for cooperation, and sometimes even create with the artists they admire, it is a certain affirmation. . What are our expectations for the Georgina Trevino brand in the future? Remote planning is not limited to brands. My real goal is to create a platform that presents contemporary jewellery, with my own brand and platform to present a variety of contemporary jewellery. About a year ago, I started to create occasional jewelry workshops, so that interested people can learn to make things - I really enjoy doing things outside the brand. After that, we will find more space to run workshops, and we will also plan into an art gallery, so that other artists can share and explain contemporary art behavior. . Do you want to say something to readers who are also engaged in creation? We must venture bravely and must trust our instincts. "You have nothing to lose," and what I have learned in these years. The more you try, the more results you will get back to yourself. Georgina's works are almost unique. After all, the pieces are from her hands, and the enamel and soft pottery products are hard to copy, and this is the most touching part of her work. I admire people who love craftsmanship and are fully committed to creation, and appreciate her thinking back and forth between space and form, dialogue with her own background and vision; in the form of jewelry or in a more undefined form, to convey her own moment Sexual language. In the experiments, the vivid dynamic energy is continuously generated and spread to the people who are in contact with her. Let his works not only be "ornaments", but the playfulness and process of the work give the jewelry another experience of wearing and thinking on the body.

In the afternoon, walk along Yongkang Park. Under a big tree, a small shop displaying prosperous ornaments attracts attention. The complex and colorful carvings are not dazzling. They are like a color that is called the era, and it is gentle and soft. The shimmer.

A rich circle, constantly excavating, researching and learning. Each piece of jewelry or living object is a small relic of the great era, condensing the craftsmanship, aesthetics and design of each era; with a little bit of learning and collection accumulation, Jane can always be from a detail or material. Then judge the period of jewelry production. Listening to him tells the story and origin of the object, and the figure that once appeared in his mind - I imagined how the masters of these ornaments lived in the distant past, and passed down the stories of that era. This time we invited Jane to share his collection of jewelry stories and the inspiration of the antique collection.

The most famous niche brand in the world: talking with LINDBERG designer Henrik Lindberg

By

"It's really hard to imagine that young people spend so much on their clothes, and every time they go out, they always have the same pair of casual glasses!" This is Henrik Lindberg, the founder of the Danish designer/Denmark brand LINDBERG. Unable to solve the problem. In his opinion, glasses are the same thing in front of the face, in front of the window of the soul, the first impression of others. Therefore, for Henrik Lindberg, the glasses are even the same "strength" design. Like many design brands, the optometrist Poul-Jørn Lindberg founded LINDBERG's original intention because he couldn't find comfortable glasses to wear, and wanted to do some light and perfect fit glasses. Now, the Danish brand that was born in 1986 has been handed over to his son Henrik Lindberg. LINDBERG is known for its top-notch production techniques, but in Henrik's own words, LINDBERG is "the most famous and unknown brand in the world of glasses." LINDBERG is not mass produced and many styles follow the principle of limited order. In his opinion, LINDBERG is a person who is passionate about design and pays attention to the wearing experience. They may prefer luxury high-end goods, but pay more attention to the philosophy behind a brand. "Even if you don't look at the technical details, you will be impressed by the entire design project." There is no "Scandinavian design." Before taking care of LINDBERG with his father, Henrik studied architecture in Denmark. "Denmark architecture schools don't just teach architecture, they also include many courses on design, learn how to think, and even how to subvert what you know." Learning the background of the building gives Henrik a system on how to design a custom solution. Sexual understanding. "Everyone has a different vision, but a good design must be sustainable." This is Henrik's definition of good design. LINDBERG's glasses are innovatively based on the ultra-lightweight material of titanium – the world's first eyewear brand that uses titanium. You can barely feel its weight and can easily wear it all day. And this "stealth" ability is not all from the choice of materials, the minimalist streamlined appearance is also an important factor. LINDBERG's glasses never even use screws. "Because the screws are always loose or lost, and extra weight is added, LINDBERG has never used a screw in its glasses for 30 years," Henrik said. The design has a signature "Nordic" design and represents the top design of Denmark, but Henrik does not agree with the topic of "Scandinavian design". “There is no Scandinavian design at all, and the design of each country is very different.” Sweden and Finland use large amounts of wood for large-scale wood, while Danish designs are marked by a mix of different materials. ...
