[Pepper Optical X Simple Union聯乘企劃 復古古布眼鏡皮套]
作為今年成軍的隱世眼鏡小店 Pepper Optical，為了宣揚優質眼鏡文化的同時，更重要是為各眼鏡愛好喜者揾來不同單位，去製作不同的眼鏡配件，令”Eyewear is not only a pair of glasses, but also a lifestyle”
今次，Pepper Optical 找到香港本地著名手作單位 Simple Union，以其最著名的日本古布及意大利植鞣革來打造眼鏡皮套。要知道 Simple Union 創立初期希望重現曾經出現於 visvim 造型錄的配襯鞋帶，所以就推出了重製版本的Patchwork Shoelace，更引來 Visvim 忠實粉絲美國格林美得獎歌手 John Mayer 的大量購入，成為一時佳話。
由於兩大主腦均熱愛古布及皮革，終於想出以古布皮革為主題的眼鏡套的產品，更以連 John Mayer 都購入的古布鞋帶變成皮套的綁繩。皮身用上意大利植鞣革，顏色以極深藍色去作為主調，低調而有型。另外，皮套外的銀扣更是 Simple
是次聯乘皮套會以先到先得方式售賣，限定十個，每個＄580，9 月 25 日開售。

yumihama-kasuri is one of cotton kimono material from Tottori pref. From growing cotton to tailoring was done within one household and patterns varies by each household. Patterns are normally related to something wishing health and happiness for family members - full of love. It was once about to disappear but after designated as a tangible cultural asset, Tottori pref. is supporting them to preserve its tradition. Currently 9 ateliers left in total. They will come to Tokyo for exhibition and demonstration. Recommend you to stop by to see their lovely motifs. #yumihamagasuri#kasuri#kimono#textiles#art#tottori#japan
My boyfriend came back from a long trip to Japan yesterday and brought me some lovely stuff. A beautiful silk scarf in pale blue and two kimono fabric scraps, one of them seems to be a real double-ikat, I'm so in love ❤.
It has become a tradition for me to buy a local Vogue when on holidays and I was so happy that he remembered that and bought a japanese one for me, too. At home I'm buying the British Vogue by the way, though I am neither British nor live there.
Tunazaliwa nakufa maramoja.
Wacha maisha yaendelee, you is my happiness #NARISH
nakupenda sana #KASURI wangu nafkiri wewe ndio umebaki pekee ukiiliwaza nafsiyangu.
