A few months before I opened the shop I found a pull-out poster from an old issue of Frankie Magazine and put it up in my office. It was an illustration of a bearded sailor and i loved the style it was drawn in. It wasn't until later when i was racking my brain for designer's work to carry that I looked up above my computer screen and thought about tracking down the artist behind him. This is what lead me to Depeapa.
Based out of Granada, Spain, Depeapa is the work of Veronica de Arriba and is a collection of beautiful objects from illustrations, tote bags, accessories, tea towels and other housewares. Her style is eclectic and classic and she favours neutral tones with pops of colour.
Her images and marketing materials are all beautifully photographed by her boyfriend and give her line that extra bit of wonder. I could peruse her Instagram for hours.
We're a huge fan of her Terrestre necklaces which are composed in all natural stone and wood materials. They are very simple but add the perfect touch to any outfit.
We carry three styles in the Terrestre necklaces.
We also have a few of her adorable pocket mirrors with girl illustrations.
And a few totes and string backpacks in the famous bearded man, floral garden and geometric mountain.
We're happy to introduce a new line of bags in the shop from Brooklyn just in time for Back to School: Baggu!
