Guest Blogger Wishlist: Shayna Kulik of Pattern Pulp

Shayna Kulik is a NYC-based designer and the founder of Pattern Pulp (est. 2006), a trend forecasting and design studio where she works with brands and agencies to help define creative and digital strategies. In 2009 she launched the popular blog, a forum dedicated to providing insight into emerging concepts in print and pattern design.

I've been a fan of Pattern Pulp's blog for awhile now, so I was nerdly excited when Allison Beale of George PR introduced us, and nerdly thrilled when Shayna agreed to guest blog her own holiday wishlist! Shayna’s approach to her work is based on making out-of-the-ordinary connections from across many categories and genres. Her love of travel, reading, photography, exploring the Internet and social media, meeting colorful characters in far-flung locales, and immersing herself in the current zeitgeist wherever she goes all contribute greatly to her process—and to her amazing wishlist.

1. Jean-Paul Gaultier for La Perla Feuillage Tulle Set

I love delicate design that's not too girly. The lace has subtle 2D graphic nuances, it almost looks like white eyelet's cooler older cousin.

2. Of a Kind Clove Scarf

Keeping things textured and structured, this scarf from Of a Kind doubles as a bold bow tie!

3. Crumpled City Maps

I travel quite a bit for work and my maps end up either ripped or stuck behind data paywalls. This set of crumpled maps by Emanuele Pizzolorusso is genius. I wish they had one for Shanghai, as I'm headed there in a few weeks.

4. 3.1 Phillip Lim Initials Cropped Tee

Animal patterns are timeless and I have them sprinkled throughout my closet. This set from 3.1 Phillip Lim is casual and I love that the shirt doubles as outerwear.

5. Alexander Wang Dillon Sneakers

I'm always on the hunt for stylish sneakers - if they have texture or a bright accent, I'm sold. This pair from Alexander Wang has both!
