Stripes in architecture

During my visits to Genova and Vicenza this summer,
I was surprised to see quite a few buildings that featured stripes …..

Summer vacation with SHIMA-SHIMA bag

This summer, I took short trips to several charming seaside towns
on the Mediterranean coast near Genova, and later to Vicenza,
a beautiful Renaissance city that is renown for the architecture of Andrea Palladio.

Here are some photos of my favourite SHIMA-SHIMA bag
that accompanied me throughout the summer.

Variations on tetrahedron pochettes

We have been asked to create variations on the tetrahedron pochettes for autumn~winter 2013.
They are now available in the heavier LIV fabrics, in various sizes.

The 3-piece set is like the Russian matryoshka doll,
a small pochette fitting inside a larger size tetrahedron.
The long-size pochette can be used for cosmetics, pens, cellphones, etc.

I am working on other designs in preparation for the coming gift season.
