Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

The year 2014 was really special, both on a personal level, as here in O Editorial. In addition to the confirmation that the collaborations launched in the previous year were a success, we introduced new products, selected especially for our store. However, the highlight of this field was the launch of the O Editorial bicycle together with the Velo Culture, using a beautiful frame made and painting in Portugal and high quality components.
In addition, we launched an advisory service, in which we're dedicated to produce the best content for brands with which we identify.
For 2015, we will continue to present local and international projects that we admire the most, as well as exploring new products and collaborations to our store. We wish you a great 2015!

And because last year was also an excellent year in terms of posts, here are 12 portuguese projects and products that inspired us in 2014 and that weren't published in O Editorial:
- The new Yara sunglasses by Paulino Spectacles for the original design...
- The beautiful book covers by publisher Orfeu Negro...
- The functional wooden bar Mister by Wewood...
- The magnificent work of Cristiana Couceiro...
- The original lamps by Orikomi...
- The appealling low table Times 4 designed by Gonçalo Campos for Polit...
- The revival of 12 as an elegant men's magazine...
- The excellent debut album of Sequin, a solo project by Ana Miró...
- The timeless Barney sneakers by Bernardo M42...
- The Ulnar gloves, a collaboration between Newfangle and Dream Wheels...
- The new collection Love Who You Want, designed by Christian Lacroix for Vista Alegre...
- And the simplicity of Roda chair by Branca Lisboa.

Short Stories

Created by my journalist friend Sandra Nobre, Short Stories are "custom-made books, written individually for each client. It can be a biography, a love story, a book to mark a special date. Reality or fiction, the result will always be a version of the story".
For Christmas, Short Stories launched its first edition of collaborations with portuguese brands, "made by the experienced hands of some of the best portuguese artisans, pairing design and tradition". With Vellas Loreto, Short Stories created a box of candles with history, inspired by the first coloured 'lights' made by the centenary store in 1845. To send a message in a bottle, Sandra Nobre developed an original bottle with Vista Alegre / Atlantis in mouth-blown glass, that comes with a portuguese cork box and stopper. And if you want to start your own story, Short Stories created the perfect diary to write "stories to be kept in secret, handbound with traditional methods, coming in an elegant velvet bag". Love it!
