I love re-discovering past travel mementos! One of my most loved items include these amazing kawaii buys and souvenirs from Lazy Oaf a store I stumbled upon on Carnaby Street in London when I was there in 2007. Hearts, stripes, character typography, polka dots....what's not to love about their cut & paste feel designs.
They also sell little trinkets like milk bottle character toys, felt tape cassette plushies, shape stationery, jewellery and badges with unique and funny slogans. To this day I still use my Twinkie the kid wallet that I got there!
For inspiration I often refer to the Lazy Oaf postcard and fashion brochure, which reminds me of Japanese fashion magazine spreads.
