  • Henrik Korpi releases his website

    Super talented photographer Henrik Korpi, responsible for the Ampersand Laces round plastic tip laces photos, has released his new website,  http://www.henrikkorpi.com. We especially love the photos for the Beckmans Fashion shows, pictured above, as well as the Saigon Alley Ladies.

    We are so glad that Henrik was able to find and portray the essence of Ampersand Laces in the photoshoot series he did for us in Spain this winter.

    Can´t get enough of Henrik? Check out his band The Amplifetes, get a haircut from him at SureBabyYes or just keep your eyes open, as this multi talent keeps popping up everywhere (especially around the Hornstull area).

  • Slipsknuten – First out to refill

    After only two weeks as a retailer for Ampersand Laces, Slipsknuten in Gothenburg called us to get a refill on their display stand, as some of the colors had already sold out.

    As the first reseller to refill, of course we had to reward them with a bottle of great rosé wine for the spring weekend. Slipsknuten sold more than 35 pairs of laces in 10 days. Pretty impressive, as they don´t sell the shoes to go with the laces.

    Cheers Slipsknuten, looking forward to bringing you the next bottle!

  • & orange in Postkodmiljonären

    We couldn´t help but notice that Rickard Sjöberg, TV host of one of Swedens most watched TV shows “Postkodmiljonären”, sported Ampersand & Orange in the latest episode. Well done, Rickard!

  • The Ampersand Display stand

    So, we just got the sample stand for our retailers and are super pleased with the result. The display stands holds 5 each of all the 16 colored laces currently available. The packaging of the laces allows the customer to easily see, feel and compare the products. The display stand turns and two stands can be assembled on top of each other to double it´s size. So, finally we can present what we start out with. Let´s see what ever other packaging and display stands the future has in store.
