Some time ago, we found this gorgeous kids wrapping paper costume (Pepe, my nephew is wearing it!) that I wanted to share with you, but had no idea where it came from or who designed it ( a designer HAD to be behind it, with such a clever design! )
After searching through Google for a while without results, I thought I would try on Pinterest to which I’m addicted. I also own a board titled kids costumes. One good thing about Pinterest is that you can always find the original source of the image you like, and this is the story of my research:
This image found in one of the boards I follow led me to meet a wonderful blog I didn’t know, wich is now on my blogroll. Wolf eye brows focus on art, design, food, illustration, fashion and many other subjects with an original, openminded approach. It is written and managed by Catherine a young and talented copywriter from South Africa. Running a blog is tough work now that I have experienced it myself (sigh!) and a way to thank someone for that effort is to give proper credit.
Stopping off place learned me that PLAYSACK was designed by Fredun Shapur for Trendon (Made In England by Trendon LTD.Malton.Yorkshire) in 1969. You can see the other designs in this blog: panda, leopard and bear. And I also found out that Deborah from Kickcan & Conkers already knew!
Next time, I will try the short way! XO
PS: Until the 5th of November you can see this toy and others at the exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000, in the MoMA
