This time of the year is always busy for the And Mary team!
Whilst of course we are sad to see the end of summer nearing, we are undoubtedly excited for the new season and to share our new AW16 designs. Keep your eyes peeled and all will be revealed soon!
Over the past few weeks we have been diligently preparing for the two trade shows we have coming up; Maison et Objet and Top Drawer. As we will be away for a few days, all orders placed between 30th August and 7th September won't be dispatched until 8th September.
Maison et Objet, Paris
2nd - 6th September
Sector: Fashion, Hall 6, Stand 139
Top Drawer, London
11th - 13th September
Sector: Fashion, stand 236
We're excited to be exhibiting our new AW16 collection at the shows. If you're attending either show, please come and say hello!
With love, And Mary
We love meeting other exhibitors and discovering exciting new products when we exhibit at trade shows. We are sharing the love this week with our favourite finds from Top Drawer including gorgeous stationery, homeware, pet accessories and children's items.
Chase and Wonder - www.chaseandwonder.com
Chase and Wonder create unique, vintage inspired animal illustrations which we love. Their growing collection features wrapping paper, prints, cards and gifts and also includes printed textiles with cushions and pouches. At And Mary we have been enjoying using their collection of bold wrapping papers, printed in Britain on lovely thick paper, which makes gift wrapping feel (and look!) extra special.
Amelia Lane Paper - www.amelialanepaper.com.au
We are always won over by anything pineapple or flamingo related.. and the lovely Chanel from Amelia Lane Paper features both our favourites in her gorgeous stationery collection! The Sydney based designer creates beautiful illustrations which are available as art prints, cards and notepads and would make a fun and fresh addition to any home or stationery collection.
Pioneros - www.pioneros.co.uk
Family business Pioneros hand craft their leather items in Argentina, with their accessory collection featuring designs for humans and animals. The bold colours on these collars, leads and belts really make the products stand out from other pet accessories. We have treated Elvis, Edith, Bob and Marley to collar updates for the new season.. and they have been wearing them with pride ever since!
Goodnight Light - www.goodnightlight.fr
We love these kitsch pineapple lamps by designer Eva from Goodnight Light. These fun lamps are available in a range of unique pastel shades and add a soft warm glow to any room. We love that they would look equally as cute in a kid's room as they would look as a statement piece in a stylish interior.
Wild & Soft - www.wildandsoft.com
Wild and Soft are a Belgian company who make gorgeously soft plush animal heads to be enjoyed by adults and children. We loved the lion head so much that we now have one to give to a very special little someone in our family!
We hope you have enjoyed our favourites from Top Drawer.. hopefully we will have lots more lovely designers and products to share on our return from Paris!
With love And Mary
