We never thought markers could be very exciting, but this video for Marc Jacob’s Bookmarc’s collaboration with marker brand Krink has us daydreaming about our inner writer-slash-artist.

If you’re interesting in these high quality quirky markers, you can buy online or at Bookmarc locations.

If you happen to have $957 to spend on an accessory (because we all do, right?), consider this lambskin backpack which has a unique, creepy-in-a-good-way touch, thanks to a screaming face molded into the leather. The item is handmade by Konstantin Kofta in Ukraine exclusively for ØDD New York. The collection includes a “no bottom” clutch, “squeezed” handbag, and a “spined” backpack.

FILED UNDER: Ms. Frizzle the Style Icon
