To me, beautifully designed products (in terms of shape, silhouette, and finishings) take on an even more special role when they have beautiful surface design. Lisa and I always say, everybody needs things, so why not really cherish what you buy?
The work of Kindah Khalidy makes me feel this way. The shop is outfitted with bags, pouches, and silk scarves. The shape and construction of the actual bags are clean and modern. As someone who loves illustration, this is only made better with the addition of Kindah’s designs. They are painterly and fun, my favorite being “Party All the Time” (above and directly below image), which looks like a deconstructed parade and/or stuffed animal.
