I’m back! Those of you that follow my Instagram know that the past 6 weeks have been a whirlwind of work and travel – I have posts coming from London Fashion Week, photoshoots in fancy London Penthouses and all the gossip from my trip to Las Vegas… but first, I wanted to introduce you to a new Stylesmith client, Looptworks.
I met Looptworks co-founder, Scott Hamlin, in Las Vegas at the Downtown Speaker Series, and as it happens, not everything that happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, and we started working with them at the beginning of September.
The company produces consumer electronic accessories (and some apparel and other accessories) and works exclusively with already existing materials. This video from Scott’s talk at Downtown Speaker Series goes into depth about the company and the ethos and practices behind it. I highly recommend watching it.
The iPad case featured in these pictures is their Tiki Case in Buttercream, made from excess belt leather, this colour is available on their website, but it’s also currently available in black on Apple.com here, and is one of their best sellers.
One of the campaigns we’ve been working on with them for social media is #CreateWhereYouWant – this idea that this world is vast, beautiful and worth exploring, so why (if you don’t have to) spend it chained to a desk – create where you want. Keeping this in mind, whilst I was home in Devon in Southwest England, I took my work with me to some of my favourite places on the planet.
Starting with Salcombe. When I was younger we’d spend most summers down in the South Hams area. We’d park our caravan, pitch our tents and spend six glorious weeks by the coast exploring. The Salcombe estuary is home to beautiful coves, crystal waters and a ton of boats, I love being by the water and grabbing a cheeky cider on the water is simply heaven.
Later this week I’ll share another favourite Devon spot, but in the meantime I’d love (and so would Looptworks) to see where you create! Follow Looptworks on Instagram and tag your posts on Instagram or Twitter with #CreateWhereYouWant – I can’t wait to see!
