DESIGNING FOR THE PEN



VINTAGE JUMPSUIT / LEE SHIRT

One of the stories my parents will happily tell at a dinner party, if the subject ever lands on how I was as little, is how they would know that if I went quiet, something was up. Often, they would find me "customizing" the walls with permanent markers, ink, paints, anything I could find to peppen up the off-white in any designated corner of the house. There's something so fun about playing with a white canvas, and by having the exciting opportunity of designing a lens-strap for the Olympus PEN, being the UK blogger ambassador, I had no doubt where to start.
Having been to art school, and often using inks for my projects, my table and floor (there's a rug there now..) would often by accident get some splashes of colour on them. As accidental as it was, I quite enjoyed the contrast between the white colour of my desk juxtaposed with the different intensities of the ink, creating this completely random yet beautiful and simple print. I love the look of the PEN and a lens-strap is such a fun way to personalize the look.


The lens-strap will be available as a limited edition online and will be made in white leather. Dates are still to be confirmed, but I hope you enjoyed the little sneak peak and hearing about the design-proces, and of course I'm excited to share the final product with you!

HOPE YOU'RE HAVING AN 
A W E S O M E
