A Sneak Peek? What's this? Chatting over tea at HQ one day, we were marvelling at how lucky we are to work with such an array of wonderful designers, and in doing so get to know them, their spaces, people and pets. Suddenly we thought, "We should share them!" and voila! we now have a spot on the blog for Studio Sneak Peeks!he WREN design‘ was born in 2008. To her, a bag should be simple, beautiful and practical, but should also have something more – a story of its own. The WREN design’s range of bags, laptop bags and sleeves is inspired by the vast possibilities of reclaimed materials and the interesting stories they bring with them.
Collaborating with PPC Cement to use their handsome reject sacks, her range of laptop bags has travelled all over the world - with happy owners testing their incredible strength and durability in varying climates. With the designer-illustrated sleeves, Wendren had the opportunity to collaborate with three of Cape Town’s finest, and the result is that each design holds a definite sense of identity.
Hardly pausing to regard her success, Wendren is constantly dreaming up new options and ideas. A visit to her brand new studio delighted us with inspiration boards packed full of designs, schemes and possibilities - even the air there seemed to hum with ideas waiting to be realised.
KIN, of course, stocks the WREN design at both Kloof Street and V&A, and also online at kinshop.co.za.
