Postalco have long been a favorite at Selectism, the Tokyo-based brand one of the first in a new wave of contemporary stationers transforming the humble notebook into a thing of beauty; so good you’re afraid to write in it. Founded fifteen years ago, Postalco is the brainchild of NYC-based bag designer Mike Abelson and graphic designer Yuri Shimizu; the label an immediate hit thanks to their pressed cotton fabric notebooks and handsome leather trimmed “Legal Envelopes.” Today the range includes a perfectly pitched selection of bags, outerwear, accessories and decorative items, all in keeping with the label’s classic aesthetic. With Fall/Winter 2015 arriving in-store and online, we pick our favorites from the sizeable range, narrowing down our ‘want’ list no easy task. Stand-outs include the ergonomically designed waterproof “Free Arm” rain jacket,” hand-shaped horn “Totem” key holders and the conveniently divided “Three” backpack.
