《南聊》Wander

【不期而遇的驚喜生活選物店】- Wander

地址:台南市安平區安北路179號
受訪人:Febie、Sinic
台北人;香港人。

Febie原本在台北過著上班族生活,而Sinic是旅居多國的壁畫創作設計師。兩人在2011年相識在台北,Sinic因為創作關係經常往返不同國家,也總會在回程時帶回他認為別具意義或者適合Febie的飾品當禮物,久而久之兩人便有了成立自己飾品品牌的想法,因而有了STORY Crafts Co.這個目前在台北、台中、台南、澳門、香港、日本皆有設櫃的中性飾品。

喜歡旅行的他們,每到一個地方花上最多時間的就是當地的市場,無論是早市、晚市或跳蚤市場,透過在市場觀察當地人的生活方式,可以接觸到他們使用的器皿、當地的傳統工藝、技法和生活用品。

因為喜歡東西的愛好來自於物件的故事背景,尤其欣賞當地的人文設計和歷史,而隨著見聞的東西越來越多,兩人開始思考開一間店的可能性。對Sinic來說,最理想的環境是能夠分享生活的美學和表現對於生活的態度,一開始他們希望盡可能找到親近自然的地方,很幸運地遇到身為畫家的房東,找到這個地點,在2016年3月正式成立Wander。

Wander的意思是漫遊,兩人希望打造出一間讓人不期而遇的驚喜小店。對他們來說旅行是很重要的靈感來源及生活養分,而所有設計都應該是為了實用而做。他們認為,對古著有興趣的人對衣服有一定程度的了解,追求的可能是工藝、物料或是歷史意義,而非追逐潮流無節制消費,也奠定了優秀的生活美學基底。

除了古著和STORY Crafts Co.的飾品,Wander裡也有著各式種類及風格的生活用品,因為商品都是極少量的緣故,每隔一段時間來逛都會有更多驚喜。Sinic特別喜歡軍用品,因為強調實用性的關係,所有軍用品都是因應戰爭需求被設計,沒有多餘的部分,以飛行外套為例,短版的設計是因為符合長時間的坐姿,而無論品牌所有的內裡皆為國際救援顏色的標準色-橘色。除了他們偏好的物件外,在Wander裡也可以看見像是來自澳洲使用小麥及玉米粉製成的碗盤餐具,能夠完全在土壤裡分解的日常用品盡可能不對地球增添不必要的負擔。在Wander裡,幾乎每件商品都有其故事性,每個選擇,都應該是除了快速消費之外、順應自然的美學呈現。

Febie lived in Taipei doing office job before she met Sinic. Sinic is a wall painting designer traveling from country to country. They met in Taipei in 2011. Sinic used to bring accessories to Febie as presents. It was a romantic way recording their romance in the beginning, while they then started to think of the idea running their own business of hand-made accessories which came up STORY Crafts Co., a brand now can be purchased in Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Macao, Hong Kong and Japan.

Febie and Sinic have great passion toward traveling. When they visit a city, they will spend most of time in the market; they think it’s the best way to get familiar to local people’s lifestyle. They like to observe a culture by daily items they use, traditional crafts and unique hand-made skills.

With the interests of understanding the history and story of every products and brand, both Febie and Sinic have the hobby of collecting vintage. After they have more and more collection, they began to think about opening their own space, sharing their aesthetics and attitude toward life. In the beginning they want to find a space close to natural, luckily they met their landlord who is a painter and found the lovely location. They opened Wander in March 2016.

The word ’wander’ means hanging around without knowing destination. They want to create a shop making people feel surprised to meet. Travel is their muse toward life, and makes daily life more interesting. All design should be practical, and in their opinion, people buying vintage only purchase when they need something, they wouldn’t shopping without limitation. By understanding every decision you make in life, you then therefore create your own taste toward it.

Besides vintage clothes they collected and STORY Crafts Co. an accessory they made, Wander also provides plenty options and brands selling lifestyle products. Every product they sell are all in limit numbers so once for a while its worth visit again to let their amazing lifestyle amazed you. Sinic particularly like to collect military supplies, the best thing to be explain why design should base on real needs. You can also see some eco-friendly products like one brand from Australia making tableware using wheat and corn flour. When you no longer need these items, it can be disappear in the mud within couple years. For them, all the products in Wander not only tell the story behind it, also shows why it shall be last in the history.
