Lettuce and Lines: Salt and Pepper shakers

by David Shrigley, £79, available at Culturelabel.

p.s. Culturelabel, in beta, is a platform for limited-edition, artist-designed goods. Wait a minute - "artist-designed"? Don't artists create? Finding the ubiquitous, unexplained use of this term a little disturbing...

Sunglasses for Asian faces

If you're not Asian, or are but be blessed with a high-bridged nose, you may not be aware of this, but most Asians have really flat noses and super curvy, headband-like sunglasses just refuse to sit on our faces. We (or I, anyway) are usually made to settle for boring wire-framed glasses with wobbly plastic nobs at the nose (dunno what they're called sorry). So I'm quite pleased to find someone trying to fill the gap in the market - quite liking the Amelia aviators I must say.

Purple suede deck shoes

from Tailorable, a Korean men's brand with super-slim, colourful casual suits, polos, leather and shoes. They have this in size 38-42, so big(ger) footed girls like me can get their share too, BUT I can't get through their online shopping process and I can't find an email address to contact them at! Boohoo :(
