Secret Squirrel : Creative Power Couple

I am constantly fascinated by creative couples that form their own studios or branch out on their own. Being a creative myself, I find it hard to get people (mainly my boyfriend) to see things the way I do or to make them understand my various pet peeves (bad kerning, typeface abuse etc) so whenever I come across a couple who makes great design, I'm completely taken. How great is it that you can share ideas and create things that are a collective of you and your partner's creativeness? I think it's awesome. That's why I love Secret Squirrel. Bri and Andrew are the couple behind this amazing label that creates classic pieces that I would definitely own and wear everyday if I had all the money in the world. Few designers actually make me want everything from their collection, Secret Squirrel is one of them!

Dog Eye Stockings...Wait, what?!

THESE ARE TO DIE FOR!!! Okay, I hardly start a post with such creepy enthusiasm, but you are insane if you can't appreciate this pair of awesome fancy stockings (way to go, insulting my readers, I swear I've consumed too much sugar today). These are by QooQooFashion, an Etsy shop by graphic designer Alyona Bauska.

Bruton Stroube: Breakfast Interrupted

Recently came across this amazing video by Bruton Stroube, the most awesome people on the planet. They are creatives specialising in advertising, and this video is probably their best work IMO. Check it out! Flying bacon! The only time you can see pigs fly. Teehee. Also see their behind the scenes video below!

A Beautiful Mess

Sore fingers and sleepless nights, I haven't experienced this since secondary school when I was up makings and selling rings. Nostalgic! Sneak peek of my army of friendship bracelets that are going up on sale soon. Let's hope they sell well!

Confetti System

Paper and confetti. Two of my favourite things in the world. Put them together and what do you get? Amazing works by Confetti System! They are a duo that has made confetti and tissue paper look like expensive works of art that are beautiful and oh-so-to-die-for. They've worked for Opening Ceremony and J. Crew displays, and I hope one day we can see their works in Singapore (dreaming, I know...)
