As the last twelve months finally come to a close, let's have a look at the ten most popular posts of the unforgettable year that was 2020.

Let this stunning debut collection from Shoma The Label transport you to warmer climes.


Another local staple that we often feature here is Nettleink, a local graphic design studio that produces Bermuda-inspired textiles and greeting cards.

For the last few years Bermudian jewellery designer Alexandra Mosher has produced an ornament-cum-pendant just in time for the holidays. Previous designs have included a gorgeous, reef-themed wreath and a Bermuda fitted dingy, but after what's been a very challenging year for most, Mosher has chosen to this year to go in a completely different direction.

This freestanding display cabinet by Nick Rennie for Oku Space exhibits a lightness in both materiality and appearance.

Although we found this line of monument-like structures by Unicuo Living to be strangely reminiscent of the furniture collection we featured a few days ago, the makers of this line place their focus on its brutalist aspects.

Hot on the heels of these other recent fashion/home collaborations, comes the news that H&M have announced yet another major designer collaboration.

British designer Max Lamb in conjunction with Kwangho Lee has created an installation of sculptural items made from three-dimensional tiles that he developed for Japanese brand Tajimi Custom Tiles who make specialty tiles for architects and designers around the world.

We have always been a little obsessed with this pairing and were incredibly sad when it came to an end after a short, but successful, run a decade ago. To say we were pleasantly surprised to receive the news that a new collection would be dropping in a few weeks would be an understatement.

Youngmin Kang

The Oddly Bookshelf by Seoul-based artist Youngmin Kang features a balanced wire cage that holds books in place with a weighted, wooden orb.

It's been a long time since a household item got us excited but the Kept collection of  brooms and other household items by Kara Mann look more like works of art than tools.

October is the month for all things gothic, right?

A fashion season unlike any other in recent memory launched earlier this month. Given the challenges faced over the last nine or so months, many designers have opted out of showing their collections altogether and staging major runway shows and over-the-top presentations have, if you’ll excuse the pun, fallen out of fashion. The few designers brave enough to push ahead with in-person  shows have staged intimate gatherings outdoors while the more cautious have released digital presentations instead.

While there will be fewer collections for us to review this time around we will still endeavour to bring you our favourites starting with this frilly and feminine collection from Anna Sui.

Australian studio Heliograf's Light Soy lamps mimic the fish-shaped soy sauce bottles called Shōyu tai (醤油鯛) found in many sushi shops. Lighthearted on the face of it, the design is in fact a commentary on the damaging effects of single-use plastic.
