Wilhelm Staehle frightens small children. He also enjoys taxidermy and hand-cuts silhouettes. We’d like to meet him. We think.

Melissa 'Enjoying' Shoe

Oxfords not brogues. So. A gal turns to wiki to find out something seemingly simple like why an Oxford shoe is called an Oxford shoe, but now I’m more confused than ever. You can read all about how the lacing is closed, being stitched underneath a vamp and all, if you really want to. Here. Or, you can just visit Melissa‘s online and do a little field research of the most fabulous kind yourself. Lordie, just imagine what a wing-tip means then?

Studio Bomba ShopStudio Bomba ShopStudio Bomba Shop

I think you know by now that when we go all quiet on the tittle tattle front, it means that Mitchell & Dent are making things. Big things. And this one’s a doozy. So, you know Mitchell & Dent is a Studio Bomba initiative right? Studio Bomba is the little design engine that drives all of the things we do – things like M&D, First Comes Love Bridal Fair and our work for other people’s brands too.

Well, now there is a Studio Bomba Shop. A bricks and mortar shop in Oxford Street that peddles stationery, artwares and designery knick-knacks. You can come see the Mitchell & Dent stationery (without having to make an appointment) and lots of local and overseas deliciousness that only the Bomba shop stocks. We think it is worth a visit (but we might be biased).

Oh, and by the way, how lovely are these images by our studio-mate Nic Montagu?

Studio Bomba Shop
Open Thursday to Sunday 10:30am to 6ish
379 Oxford Street, Mt Hawthorn, Western Australia

Mesdames Mitchell & Dent are very fond of a fiesta, a shindig, a soirée – even a sundowner. And whilst we disapprove of being invited by text, we don’t think every bash warrants bespoke letterpress stationery. DIY can be most delightful, so here’s some we prepared earlier… lovely invitations in little packs of 8, envelopes all included. Perfect for children’s birthdays, high teas, dinner parties and baby showers. You can find them at the Studio Bomba Shop.

(And to the lovely gal who popped in to see us on Sunday and to who I promised a blog post, apologies for my tardiness!)

For any occasion

November 2, 2011 / By The Mesdames / 3 comments

Sometimes people make things so frickin awesome you just want to spit. On them. And go back in time. And steal their idea. (And go mwah mwah mwah. And dream up dastardly deeds for further evil-doing. And have a really ace midcentury lair perched on the side of a gently smokin’ volcano.) Canadian illustrator Andrew Kolb made these tattoo-it-yourself cards. Bastard.

What’s in a name?

October 16, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

What’s in a name? Well, you could ask Shakespeare what the blazes he was banging on about, or you could ask Emma Lamb. She makes the awesomest modern-vintage (work that one out) crocheted garlands and goodies – and names them all. Wouldn’t you like to take home a Daisy or an Esme? Or a Flora or an Edna? I don’t know how they smell, but they sure are sweet.

You might remember the great Custard Cream post fest of 2010 here on Tittle Tattle (here and here and here and here). Just guess how we feel about Nikki McWilliams then?

Polli are my go-to gang for lovely light pressies to send overseas, but this one probably wouldn’t make it into the post.

All go go

September 14, 2011 / By The Mesdames / Make a comment

Go get your diaries out. Sharpen your pencil. Mark down Sunday September 25 between 2 and 4pm. You now have a previous engagement of the awesome-est kind. Art, ink, prints by lowbrow artists from near and far (including our own Madame Dent) all in honour of the itty bitty little printing machine invented in 1977 in Japan – the GOCCO. You can even see one in action with a live demo during Outskirts (thanks to Ruck Rover and Outré Gallery).

Go Go Gocco Go Exhibition runs from 23 September to 12 October 2011
Special event: Gocco demo, Sunday 25 September 2-4pm
Outré Gallery, 260 William Street, Northbridge
