Shopping in London: Lazy Oaf

IMG_7718

I do love popping into Lazy Oaf on the ground floor of Kingly Court (just off Carnaby Street) for a kooky dose of sausage dog print tees (my all-time favourite), banana Perspex brooches and hamburger sweaters.

Lazy Oaf are the crew behind the Michael Jackson tee I posted about recently, and they seem to have a never-ending supply of slightly mad graphic concepts for men’s and womens’s tees and sweaters, as well as toys, pins, stationery and plush toys.

New this season is the fabulous Foxy tee, which features a print collar, as well as a super-sweet ‘I Make Things’ tee – perfect for crafty make-and-do chicks.

They've also got an amazing range of Japanese stationery and decorative items. Take a look at these  Pinocchio plates, notebooks and decorative tape by designer Shinzi Katoh. How much fun is the 'Happy Friends' tape?

Their website is also well worth a look, with all their products available to purchase, along with a particularly good shop blog.

    Love the foxy t-shirt – might be something to indulge in when I return to my non bumpy state!

    Very stylish and cute and the colours are great! Sort of retro mod? All the amazing shops you show us in London – it’s quite good I don’t live there as I’d end up with an empty purse!

    Cute! All of it! Despite living in London I did not know that store was there. Imagery very reminiscent of Olle Eksell.
