My obsession with ‘Paul Smith’-like stripes is going on 6+ years now…as I have loved them from the first moment I set eyes on them, it has been interesting to see the ‘stripes’ filter their way through the design world and be copied, re-interpreted and spread all around. Seems the time line from high fashion, in this case, to garden and household implements (in the most utilitarian of form) is at least 6 years. That seems interestingly long….don’t you think?
Cute hoses, decorative tool boxes and interesting buckets are what you find at Alice Supply Company (among other high style household tools). Not too much of a premium cost wise, so I think it’s perhaps worthwhile, particularly if I had a small town garden where my watering hose might really be part of the whole scheme – it might be fun to coordinate.
