To add to the collection
November 18, 2006
Things have a way of multiplying overnight in my house. Picked up here and there, individual items eventually turn into full-fledged collections very quickly -mostly because I can’t really help myself when I see something cute.
Case in point, the Lucky Beggar change purse from the MoMAstore. I began unintentionally collecting coin purses after obtaining my second most awesome and most handy Roadkill oversized coin purse (that doubles as a complete wallet to an ipod/elph case) and this would be a most welcome addition to the collection. The iconic New York coffee cup translates perfectly into accessory form -and a non-disposable earthenware form of the cup is also available. What’s more, partial proceeds from the coin purse go to a homeless aid organization.
UPDATE: The Acne Shop is now open. The merch is all very basic and none too exciting, but good nevertheless. Hopefully their most powerful pieces will be added soon. No shipping outside of Europe. Boo.
