PAPERCHASE - latest snapshots

Today on Print & Pattern is all about Paperchase. I have picked out some new arrivals such as these fun lunch bags featuring wild animals, robots and rows of cute characters. Also look out for new dinosaur designs, cat burglars, a kitchen stationery print, plus a striking mid century style geometric on a pencil case and plenty of new notebooks.

CARDS - paperchase

And also catching my eye at Paperchase were these small but very beautiful letterpress greetings cards. Covering Birthdays, Thank you, and some left blank for any purpose it's a really striking collection.

PAPERCHASE - back to school

And we end to today with a preview of some of things we can expect from Paperchase's forthcoming 'Back to School' ranges. The children may not have even started their summer holiday's yet but retailers like to get ahead. For older students these digital type designs caught my eye. Other new arrivals include several collections Wild Aztec, Speech Bubble, and Pony Party. These designs will be on all kinds of stationery and back to school goodies.

STATIONERY - papier tigre

Both of today's discoveries were made as a result of a flying visit into The Conran Shop to look for a present.  Whilst there I came across some notebooks by French studio Papier Tigre. Founded by a trio of three designers Julien Crespal, Agathe Demoulin and Maxime Brenon in 2011 Papier Tigre produce notebooks, cards, stationery and gift wrap in striking contemporary geometrics. Their collections were inspired by Japanese culture and sensibility mixed with influences from Parisian cultureTheir products are now sold through 250 stockists (such as the Conran Shop) in 25 countries and they also have their very own Paris Boutique.
