A curation of our five favourite things this month...
THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP – The Japanese art of de-cluttering and organising. By Marie Kondo.
TOAST Founder Jessica recently read this book upon a visit to Niseko, Japan. Master the discipline of only owning what gives you joy, using the insightful KonMari Method. Written by professional cleaner Marie Kondo.
SOM SAA AT CLIMPSON'S ARCH, HACKNEY
We recently spent the evening at new Thai pop-up Som Saa. Founders Andy Oliver and Tom George have been attracting the Hackney locals with lesser-known dishes from the Northern and North Eastern province of Thailand. We recommend the fiery bar snacks and Gaeng Hung Lay pork curry.

On a recent trip to Paris, our design team visited the newly reopened Musée Picasso, which has recently undergone an impressive renovation. The newly arranged collections, often referred to as “Picasso’s Picassos” feature over 5,000 of his most personal works, largely donated to the State by his heirs. Regarded as Picasso’s most extensive range of art forms; experience all his mediums from painting, sculptures and etchings to books and photographs.

TOAST SUZU SADDLE BAG
New in for Spring. This bag is made from high quality European leathers that have been cut, stitched and finished by skilled makers working in a small family run leatherworks in East London. Established in 1969, the manufacturer is one of a very few remaining in an area once home to a thriving handbag industry.
