As we continue to struggle with the concept of fast fashion and objects that simply don't stand the test of time, we are increasingly attracted to brands who create well designed product, that's built to last.
Belgium retailer Magazyn claim their products are 'Handmade to last a lifetime.' The range of stunningly simple homeware objects and accessories, is individually crafted and made from natural materials. Unfortunately the shop is based in Antwerp (a city we love - look out for our potted guide, coming soon) but you can order from the website.
We particularly love the kangaroo leather lace ups, which at 525 Euros are not cheap. But at least you can genuinely say, they will last forever.
