The Edit by Bonny Beattie
It was on The New that I first found Bonny. Her work stood out a mile. The emotion she captured, captured me. She's smart, creative and admirable in business. Me (and my 3 year old, and actually probably anyone she bumps into) feel lucky to know her.
If you didn't know, Bonny styled Pepa. She made some of the crucial design decisions that helps you to feel so warm and welcome in the space.
Because of Bonny's impeccable taste, we were curious to know which of our products she liked the most.
When I was photographing the hero images for the Pepa website, Ami sent me a box of what would become the first Pepa products with this pen included. From the ceremony of opening this packaging to the weight of this pen I was in love! Luxury!
These are essential for making to do and reminder notes an absolute joy, in my favourite shade of yellow and a pleasing half moon. Stick them on everything please.
I think these scissors might be the most beautiful functional item I’ve ever seen! Futuristic and graphic, with heritage construction methods as well as the insane Japanese packaging, so pleasing.
I love giving gifts, especially ones that are “hamper” style containing many small (but amazing) gifts to individually unwrap and enjoy. This box is not only full of this kind of gift giving magic but the Furoshiki wrapping (traditional Japanese wrapping using cloth) in a minty green scarf emblazoned with technical diagrams of the products inside the gift packs takes it to the next level! I would wear this in my hair for sure!
This is Ground is probably my favourite of all the exclusive brands that Pepa stocks. (I say probably because they keep adding more and I have to hedge my bets). Representing organisation and beauty combined, This is Ground are LA Designed and Italian made leather goods. I have these cord straps, a wallet that fits my phone and the cord tacos. These are perfect for tidying up the bottom of your bag, keeping loose headphones and phone chargers tightly wound, keeping me from getting tightly wound!
I love the messages and sentiments that Pepa’s collection of pins represent, from feminist battle cries, to quiet jibes at “the man” to whimsical objects. I love this pin for its positivity. I have bought a range of pins from Pepa and attached them as gift tags on Christmas presents this year. Super cute on denim jackets but also major as lapel pins on dinner jackets for the gents.
