Kent based ceramicist Michaela Gall is renowned for her hand painted domestic ware designs. Working from a converted stable she uses as a studio, Gall works in maiolica, a ceramic technique originating in Renaissance Italy where a tin glaze is applied over an earthenware base. With a background in illustration and painting having trained at Chelsea School of Art, Michaela progressed to working with pottery after taking classes for years and enjoying the freedom the medium brings.

“I like the moment of distortion where you can sort of pull it into any shape, make it crooked or off centre; I like that sort of elasticity and flux. I’m not aiming for perfection you can buy that in Ikea.

To mark our 15th anniversary, we have commissioned Gall to create a range of hand painted ceramics depicting fashion industry greats in her archetypal folk influenced style. Her humorous and playful portraits of Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, Vivienne Westwood and more, are fitting to coincide with London Fashion Week, 12th – 16th of September.

The team at Garbstore recently went on a buying trip to New York. After showing at Capsule, we had a look at the AW14 collections from American and Japanese brands such as Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments and Post O’alls. We endured a snow storm or two but took refuge in the warmth and comfort of Freemans, Cafe Habana and Kinfolk Magazine’s party.

The latest children’s arrival is making us crave sunny days. Spring Summer promises to be stylish and playful with no compromise on quality!

Grocery shopping has been a real inspiration at Bobo Choses, we love large lemon, orange and tomato prints on onesies, tops and canvas bags. ESPno1 and Bellerose are as cool as ever. The style is urban, casual and laid back with interesting details that make us wish those pieces came in adult size. Cute prints from Morley are always a hit among the little ones! For parties and special occasions we have the most gorgeous dresses by Pero. And at last, Makie offers extremely well made clothes in natural tones with a splash of bright orange. Oh so desirable!
