Wagon Tote Bag by Welcome

Posted: 26 Sep 2011 09:47 AM PDT

Practical & fun seldom mix so well like the Wagon Tote Bag designed by Welcome- a studio directed by Laurel Consuelo Broughton focused on meaningful design toward the explication of cultural ideas.

WAGON is a curated bricolage of style and function that merges playful aesthetics with the timeless need to carry and convey. Each WAGON is modeled after an icon of carriage— WAGON No.1 starts with the honest mason's bag and adds wheels and a friendly demeanor for the perfect at-home companion. WAGON No.2 takes on the stalwart basket and is sturdy for neighborhood transport or at-home laundry duty., and WAGON No.3 is the tall flexible sibling of the pack. Based on the standard grocery bag, No.3 is perfect for easy toting, the canvas grocery bag is removable and becomes a backpack for those lighter loads.

Dot Boots by Manolo Blahnik & Damien Hirst

Posted: 25 Sep 2011 09:51 AM PDT

When two of the world renowned artists joined force, Manolo Blahnik- a shoe designer and Damien Hirst- an artist famed for his spot painting, a 'Dot' Boots was born. Exploiting the Pop and Op evocations of Hirst's pattern of identically sized dots evenly spaced on a grid, Blahnik reprises the 1960s "go-go" boot. Coincidentally, this collaboration predated by a few months Louis Vuitton's launch of its Takashi Murakami patterned bags.  

"I have always been an admirer of Damien Hirst, so I jumped at the opportunity to work with his prints. I made two boots—both very simple because I wanted Mr. Hirst's work to be the main focus and not the shoes. One is this from the 'Spots' series, and the other a 'Splash.' Of the two, this is my favorite. Spots have always been a favorite theme with me, but I love the way that Hirst places them in this rigid, repetitive format. It looks very disciplined but at the same time is very playful—thanks to the fun colors that represent chemicals, giving the whole piece a dark undertone, which I find very clever." —Manolo Blahnik
