Anna Wintour: “Sometimes geeks can be chic”



Anna Wintour’s regulation five-word* acceptance speech at the Webbys was witty if slightly inaccurate.

“Sometimes, geeks can be chic” she quipped, while picking up a People’s Voice award for Vogue.com. I’d argue that there’s nothing geekish about technology now – it’s been chic for at least two years. What do you say?

*every winner’s speech was limited to five words



What Moleskine did next



Moleskine is for the Paperchase addict who grew up but never stopped loving stationery. Along with the library-leisure trend, the current stationery obsession is another parallel to the digital revolution. Technology freaks like paper too! Moleskine has been slowly building its empire with expensive beautiful, no-frills products. Here are some of my favourites:

Clip-on pens and pencils
Moleskine Pencils, Roller Pens, Slip-on grips

Bigger A4 hardback notebooks and sketchbooks

iPad cases. These are great as you can position your notepad on the left or right, depending on whether you’re left or right-handed. I spotted one first in a meeting with the unstoppable Chris Morton from Lyst and have been looking out for them ever since (only compatible with first generation iPads though).
