Stationery nerds rejoice: Søstrene Grene’s ‘Back to school’ collection is coming

Stationery nerds rejoice: Søstrene Grene’s ‘Back to school’ collection is coming

Anyone who appreciates a beautiful notebook should run, not walk to Søstrene Grene on June 27 for the release of their ‘Back to School’ collection. 


If you’re anything like me, the mere thought of pencils in pastel shades, neat stacks of notebooks, and soft-toned satchels is enough to put you in a near-meditative state. Maybe it’s an Instagram-esque illusion of productivity or simply a promise of organisation that’s so alluring, but there’s nothing like pretty stationery to make you feel like you have it together.

That’s why I will be making my way promptly to Søstrene Grene on June 27, when their ‘Back to School’ collection is arriving in store. I insist on the inverted commas, because adults need stationery too, ok? Surely the ‘Back to School’ feeling of a stack of fresh notebooks and matching pens is universal? Or buy it for your kids who actually go to school, whatever.

Søstrene Grene's'Back to School' collection

These wall-mounted storage racks are beautifully simple, perfect for organising your collection of patterned notebooks, magazines you’re reading, or just bits and bobs you want to keep off your desk. From top: magazine rack €13.88, notebooks from €1.24, hardcover notebook €3.88, ruler €1.80, chair €34.

When it comes to the things on your desk, these soft-toned offerings will help you keep it all neatly organised (in theory, anyway). From top: pencil sharpener €0.52, eraser €0.14, notepad €2.28, paper clips €0.49, tablet cover €4.20, pack of two pens €1.40, planner €1.98, index dividers €0.78.

Whether it’s pinning reminders, to-do lists, or just beautiful prints and postcards, a noticeboard is handy to have above your desk, and gives you something to look at when you’re ‘thinking’ (read: procrastinating). From top: noticeboard €10.94, magazine organiser €3.77, basket €1.99, cardboard tool holder €1.38, wood storage box €3.19.

Ok, so this might look like a child’s schoolbag all packed for the day, but hear me out. Adults use backpacks, drink water, write things down and eat snacks, so you know, who’s to say? Pencils with rubbers on top are a practical choice. And the multiplication table? We all need a hand with sums from time to time…

From top:  multiplication table €0.56, lunch box €0.94, notebooks from €1.24, pencil with eraser €0.54, pencil case €3.20, backpack €12.38, water bottle €3.43, paper fortune tellers €2.28 for pack of 24 sheets.
