September is a big month for LUC. Well for me too, really! It's a birthday month - for me and for the shop. Lots of new things will be arriving and already shipments are on the way and will be here this first week of the month.
First to arrive are these great bags from US brand Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger - fantastic satchels and messenger bags made from 100% recyclable SMRT felt, PU leather and water resistant microfibre.
The brand was founded in 2010 by a Harvard trained architect and the bags and accessories are inspired by architectural concpets - clean lines, functional and structural. They are practical, versatile and unisex - classic bag design. Fits so well with the LUC. philosophy.
A few weeks ago I posted a picture on instagram of a great Mark Tuckey table (gotta love his designs!) and I kept staring at the little wooden rhinocerous on the table. So I have sourced this fellow and also he will be joined by a few mates. Simus the rhino, Ursa the bear and Hattie the elephant are due in store this week.

Designed by the NYC design studio of David Weeks (for Areaware) these incredible wooden animals are made from sustainable hardwood. You know you want one....

Also arriving from NYC design brand Areaware are the curious yet practical hand hooks.
These are made from resin and marble and are a quirky alternative to your average hook. In a variety of designs these white hands will certainly be a talking point! (I think I will be using one in my bathroom - freaky but cool!)

And, finally just one more thing to tempt you. I am really excited to announce that LUC. will be stocking the beautiful linen brand Hale Mercantile Co. Soft, textural European linen in earthy colours.
My first shipment will be the table linen - runners, napkins and table cloths. (but please note, I am happy to place orders for their incredible bed linen - and I think I may well be the first order - you should see the charcoal sheets and doona covers - bliss.)
There is quite a bit more to come and new product arriving all the time (not to mention a few things in the pipeline that I will be really excited to introduce to you before Christmas) so I will be back with an update in a week or two. Spring is in the air and summer is coming!! Lucy x
