say hi to_ Holiday Guide | IX. The Urbanite

Manny Wainwrong grew up in the UK spending his days behind the local supermarket skateboarding and spray painting the backs of buildings with his mates. He just so happened to IDOLIZE famed British skater, Danny Wainwright and took it as a sign that his name was so similar. He spent every day for 15 years trying to beat Danny’s record for the highest Olly in guinness book of world records. Sadly, as his name suggests - everything he did was just wrong. He broke most bones in his body, got arrested for his wall art and ended up being teased throughout British suburbia for being a lame rip off of Danny Wainwright.

There was in fact one thing that went right for Manny. All of his luck changed when he decided that the suburbs were definitely not for him and moved on to the sunnier skylines of Barcelona in Spain. Merging his love of design, fine art and skateboarding he opened a skateshop in the city centre focusing on limited edition skateboards designed by artists internationally. He also got to meeting a beautiful Swedish/Italian woman who the locals called ‘Sabiñorita’. 

Sabiñorita brought he graceful and feminine touch and together they started collecting prints from international illustrators and print makers. Their collection grew and grew until they opened a prints gallery celebrating young creators from around the world. They’ve since adopted a hotdogdog who Sabiñorita enjoys taking for walks on the beach and cleaning with wet wipes (something Manny still can’t quite figure out)

Not getting to escape the city much, they love to surround their home in plants and greenery and inspiring books which celebrate nature. Have a look at what this cool urban couple wants this year for the holidays.
