The Collector's issue of THE quintessential MAGAZINE is full of the inspiring, the found, the unusual and the beautiful just like the store that gave it birth, quintessential duckeggBLUE. Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen talks about the inspiration behind her new Ocean collection. Überstylist Glen Proebstel captures the magic of heartfelt treasures in New York and author Karen McCartney reveals how a misspent youth in London forged her style. And then there are the collections! Bobbins, bread boards, shoe lasts, potato mashers … how ordinary things can be extraordinary.

(Same little birdie told me that Mr Jason Grant did the styling on these pictures. Cool! What I wouldn't give for a wall of shelves like that!)
I scream. You scream. We all scream for ....eyescream? A self service shop in Barcelona selling little monster bowls of Taiwanese shaved ice cream. From product design to branding, graphics and packaging all the way to interior design Estudio m Barcelona has taken what is normally an amorphous mass of sweet goop and introduced a fun taste and visual feast to the passing customers. How cool (pun intended) are those ice cream monsters with their sugar eyes?
"Hadar Lorenzo wanted an annex to the men's store, that could function as a stand alone shop. A place to try out new clothes, ideas, and designers before committing to carrying them at his other locations. It was important to both of us that the shop continued H Lorenzo's long tradition of cutting edge design but that if also had its own style. Also, just as critical as the retail below, Hadar wanted an upstairs client lounge, where he could entertain clients and meet with peers over sake or espresso. Packing all this into such a narrow room, while maintaining a sense of lightness and freshness was my primary challenge."
