  • Jordi Labanda

    anyone heard of this spanish illustrator?

    you might have come across his range of notebooks and stationery items at taka or borders... quite pricey but i absolutely <b><font color=ff3399>adore</b></font> some of his creations... one of my favourite illustrators... supposedly very popular in the european countries.

    i sometimes go broke collecting his range of notebooks but i always get comments whenever i whip my notebook out from my document bag at work or meetings

    check out his collection:
    <b>jordi labanda items</b>

    so anyone else collects his notebooks?

      yes i have heard of this too! The range at taka is great! It initially used to be at Borders bookstore but i think they moved on to taka.
      The notebooks are really pretty!
      They sorta remind me of Stila's designs but with more style and flair.

        oh gosh! i really really Jordi's stuff!

        it was SO who introduced me to this brand he buys them in Australia or whenever he's in the US. I will always get a Jordi on top of other x'mas pressies from him every counting i have close to a dozen Jordi pens, stacks of various big/small journals, some small pouches and a big bag

        he even got me a staff's tee when he happened to be at one of Jordi's new design launch about 2 years back. It's a plain white t-shirt with black cursive Jordi across the back and the dot for the letter i is replaced by a red crystal. he had bribed the girl with a US$50 bill in exchange

                wow lucky girl hylifax! your SO is so nice to get you all those jordi's stuff from all over the world even that exclusive staff t-shirt!! wow! not to mention all these must have cost quite a bit i'd love to get the pens too.. but didn't seem to find them in singapore... do you know where does your SO get them in US? which store/ shop?

                yup yup stilafaux, jordi labanda's range "originated" from borders... my first notebook was bought from borders about 2-3 years ago, but it's a little bit more expensive at borders, so I always just check out taka nowadays. aside from the stacks of notebooks, i recently just added 3 new items to my collection - the swarovski crystal journals. these come in address book or plain paper selection... adorned by small little crystal bits... let me see if i can find a picture somewhere...

                <font color=6666cc>ok here they are aren't they pretty?
                the covers are made of cloth instead of the usual laminated cardboard paper... very cool </font>

                interesting that stilafaux pointed out the resemblance to stila cosmetics icon girls... (i happen to be a <font color=cc66cc><b>BIG FAN</b></font> of stila too so girly... guess that's how all these marketeers squeeze every single cent out of our hard earned money with their <font color=ff3399>oh-so-pretty-irresistably-cute products</font>

                angelique's description of direction to the jordi labanda section at taka is so cute i think that's at taka <b>basement 1</b> cuz it's still below the ground floor. so lumos, did you manage to find it?

                happy to see fellow jordi labanda fans around here too!

                    hi crazygirl

                    hehe, yes yes i'm a very lucky girl
                    Jordi's stationery are not available locally. The nearest place to get them is in Sydney.

                    I believe my SO got them at various stationers mostly in New York. Actually, you can find Jordi at those chic bookstores along 6th Avenue. The Borders at Broadway and Park Avenue carries some Jordi too. hth!

                              Takashimaya carries the range as well. But more of stationery. Also check out eBay. Stuff are cheaper on eBay.
