I want so much…
1. Michael Soi Tote Bag
Yes they are trendy, cool and are probably on a recommendation list on a tripadvisor forum. But I really like these bags because, every one of his pieces tells a story, and I think it would be pretty special to be able to own and carry around one of his stories. And as an artist I commend his personalised skill.

2. Comic book apparel by Akilitatu
Akilitatu is what I would describe as an almost deconstruction designer. He takes a part clothing and reinvents it. Akilitatu takes aspects like recycling and recreation that are defining characteristics of deconstruction but the end result is a finished and not the incomplete, destroyed look associated with deconstruction.
3. Illustrations and t-shirts by Joanna Thangiah
Joanna Thangiah fights patriarchy and brings much needed attention to mental illness one illustration at a time. Her illustrations are sold online and some have been made into shirts.
Joanna Thangiah’s creative casual wear are a reminder that awareness is always in style.
4. Sunglasses by Bohten
Bohten is a eco-luxury eyewear line founded by Nana Boateng Osei. I am a big fan of eyewear and the idea of having a pair of sunglasses made from reclaimed wood is fascinating.
