“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing. At other times it feels like being mildly drunk, or concussed. There is a sort of invisible blanket between the world and me. I find it hard to take in what anyone says. Or perhaps, hard to want to take it in. It is so uninteresting. Yet I want the others to be about me. I dread the moments when the house is empty. If only they would talk to one another and not to me.” C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Newspaper Bag Collection featured with six pages in the 2014 Spring issue of the Haute Handbag Magazine
This collection features fabrics printed with newspaper themes, from the comic, to the add section; and there's even a foreign newspaper. I was inspired to design this collection as pure melancholy. There was something special about siting at the table during Sunday mornings and browse through the newspaper pages, especially because it was an activity that I have shared with my father at different times of my life. So this collection is about remembering old times: me, the newspaper, and my father.
