It is Always Too Late

I shall not lie to you when divulging the origins my discovery of the designer brand “Too Late“: I discovered the company in an old MissHannahMinx video. As think about it more and more the less I am ashamed: the videos are made for watching and watched it I did.

Too Late was not create by a designer wishing to make their name in the fashion world, but by an entrepreneur who found a silicone watch in a New York MOMO store and decided that he could make something of that simple yet effective design. Ale Fogazzi acquired the distribution rights of that now-famous watch in 2007 and built the Too Late brand around it. Since then well over two million watches have been sold, proving that the company’s formula of ‘high-end yet affordable’ is winning over consumers world-wide.

Whilst the majority of the products from Too Late are of the time-telling variety, they have branched out with bracelets, wallets, handbags, USB flash drives, belts and even a bicycle. Even though I cannot say that the bright colours of Too Late’s signature silicone look is something that appeals to me directly, their subtler Neo and Nyx watches do tempt me greatly.

Cute Carry Bags

They are bright, they are colourful, and they are damn cute! Oh, and they’re not stupidly expensive like other designer stuff that looks good – which is nice. They come in at around USD$24, which, for a laptop or camera case (in my experience of working in a store that sells a lot of them) is about par. The designer is 25togo and by the looks of the Asian lettering on their website that they are Chinese (I hope that’s correct). Oh, I found some information on them, they are Taiwanese (SORRY!), which makes more sense.

The dimensions are as follows:

  • Photo Bag:
    • L 115mm W 95mm D 18mm
  • Laptop Case:
    • L 330mm W 280mm D 25mm (33.8cm/13.3″)
    • L 345mm W 300mm D 25mm (35.8cm/14.1″)
    • L 380mm W 325mm D 25mm (39.1cm/15.4″)

Hey! I didn’t even notice this to begin with, but there’s a subtle case of engrish here! MY DOCUMENT and MY PHOTO should both be plural. Oh well, they are still both adorable :).


Beach Party = $10 tees (apparently)

Not that I’m complaining, if there’s one thing I love it is cheap Threadless tees :D! For those kids who are not a tee nut like myself, Threadless is a website where the community submits designs that the community votes on and then best 300 per month go to an internal Threadless team who pick the ones that will be printed. So after hours (I would love to say that I am exaggerating but I’m sadly not :$) of going back and forth here are the ones that’ll be arriving at my front door:

The girly ones will obviously be for female friend so mine (I swear!).

The beach party started on the 11th June and ends on the 14th at 5pm sharp (some kind of American time which I don’t know, you guys can figure it all out for yourself, you’re good like that).
