Love Potion: No. 9 Thompson




Last week was Design San Francisco and there was such a lot to see! One of my favorite Showrooms is Shears and Window, so I always run in to see what is new. As soon as I walked in I saw a beautiful display of the latest from No. 9 Thompson, which is the latest brand from Jim Thompson. Designed by English designer Richard Smith, this line has plenty of pizazz and whimsy providing a fresh take on "East meets West".


Plenty of painterly expression here with the screened prints on linen depicting dragons and suzani patterns.....


The think that was most eye catching were all of the travel and home accessories......


pieces of luggage, tote bags....


Aprons, hats......


Make-up bags of all sorts, eyeglass cases..... 


And one of my favorite items....the garment bag with matching fabric covered hanger inside! So fun....


Everything was offered in almost all of the fabrics new to the season. I asked how to find these little jewels for purchase and was told that very soon....this summer???...there will be an online shop where you can all stop in a refresh your carry on bags just in time for your next getaway!

Chad Holman, Managing Director, Jim Thompson America and Designer for No. 9 Thompson

 "No. 9 Thompson" ........ was it conceived after imbibing a little Love Potion? Makes sense!

Katie- Is that custom no. 9 candy? Wow.

The fabrics are so colorful and so pretty. What a happy statement they make together. The blue satchel with orange trim is my favorite.
