About Us

Inspired by the fascinating world of cinema and by the never-fading beauty of the tangible.

For years, I have been funneling my lifelong passion for cinema and my interest in fashion in film, of which I am a fervent proponent as one of cinema’s most far-reaching influences, on my website, the online cultural publication Classiq Journal.

shop.classiq.me was inspired by and created around the world of cinema. It is truly a celebration of films and storytelling, and an opportunity to bring some of my ideas and cinema experiences to life and to present them in a new, wider context. At the same time, the shop is about more than film. Our products want to bring a new appreciation for artistic expression, craftsmanship and authentic beauty. Because I’m equally inspired by everything classic: timeless style, the printed word, handmade art and artifacts, the never-fading beauty of the tangible.

The products available in our shop are specially curated by myself and/or created in exclusive collaborations with some wonderful friends and partners – they are mainly artists (and film lovers) I have previously featured or interviewed on Classiq Journal or artists and talented emerging designers and artisans I have recently discovered and met and who have wholeheartedly embraced the idea of a stories shop.

Our online boutique will be regularly updated with new products and stories. The items made in exclusive collaborations are limited editions, therefore they might by gone by the next day. But if you’ve seen something that you liked and it’s no longer available, contact us and we might bring it back. I hope you will discover something that you like here.
