Charlotte Mei X Lulu Guinness
For artist Charlotte Mei, the perfect day off is spent snuggled up with her dog, watching cartoons or reading a book in bed. This happy place brings so much joy, that it has even inspired her latest collaboration with fashion brand Lulu Guinness. The capsule collection features the brand’s iconic lip motif reimagined by Mei on bags and purses, fluffy bunnies and four legged friends on dinky keyrings, and super cute socks that will make great stocking fillers when Christmas rolls around. Our favourite piece has to be a silk scarf illustrated with her dream scene, complete with big cup noodles next to the bed. Heaven!

Charlotte Mei X Lulu Guinness
De la Jardin
Jacqueline de la Fuente owns the magic hands behind De la Jardin’s covetable paper clay pieces. Instead of traditional clay, Jacqueline utilises waste paper and card, collecting from local cafes and shops as well as saving items at home from the recycling bin. This would-be trash is then turned to treasure- whizzed up into a pulp, ready to be moulded by hand into chunky vases and objects for the home. They feel like miniature versions of Franz West sculptures and we’re here for it.
KJP Wine Totes
Dressing up for parties might be out of the question, but we’re all for making our trips to the corner shop for another bottle of lockdown wine a bit more stylish. Cue this collaboration from cult indie boutique Lisa Says Gah, and Stockholm based designer K J Plumb who have joined forces on a collection of tote bags we didn’t know we needed but are delighted exist. The perfect size and shape for a bottle of vino, these denim numbers have been printed with KJP’s much loved patterns.
The Daisy Check styles are currently out of stock, but you can still dress up your next purchase of Pinot noir in the Warp Check design.
Henry & Sally playing cards
Mikkeller Brewery’s art director Keith A Shore has been illustrating the brand’s beer labels with his characters Henry and Sally since 2010. The striking duo who aren’t shy of fun have now made their way onto a deck of cards where their antics continue to play out on 13 different designs. Shuffle the pack and you’ll find Harry chomping down on watermelon slices followed by Sally dunking him head first into a bucket. The cards come housed in six unique collectors boxes available via the Art of Play but are sent out at random so there’s no knowing which you’ll get.
Accidentally Wes Anderson Book
If you’re one of the whopping 1.2 million people following the Accidentally Wes Anderson page on Instagram, you’ll be familiar with the contents of this gorgeous new coffee table book celebrating the very best of its feed. Creator, Wally Koval has compiled 200 of the snaps sent in by fans with a keen eye for recreating Wes Anderson’s legendary aesthetic. From pastel dipped turret-topped buildings to perfectly symmetrical swimming pools and tiny huts teetering on mountaintops, flipping these pages might just quell that wanderlust we’ve all been feeling while planes have remained grounded this year. It should keep us going until Anderson’s new film is released in 2021.
