"It’s August and I feel like buying school supplies. I’m not sure why this is such a gratifying task. There’s something about freshly sharpened No.2 pencils, and the linen paper we used for presentations before the digital age. Perhaps it is because I grew up in a family of teachers, and gearing up for the beginning of school was a comprehensive endeavor. It kind of feels like a ‘fresh start’ after finishing the previous term and having the summer to re-group. This collection, ‘Pencil & Paper’, was inspired by the nostalgia of preparing for a new school year."   -Melanie Rice
