Paul & Joe's summer 2013 "Beach Baby" collection doesn't entail the most impressive design, especially given Paul & Joe's other seasonal offerings. However, I thought two pieces were worth picking up from a collectible perspective - the UV Pressed Powder compact (which, for some inexplicable reason, wasn't available in the U.S.) and the blotting sheets.
The powder compact features tiger cubs rendered in a blue floral print against a green jungle landscape. Would it be a Paul & Joe collection without cats of some kind? I think not.
The other noteworthy piece was the blotting sheet case, outfitted with rows of dolphins against a yellow background.
Oddly enough, while some prints in the makeup line are borrowed from pieces from Paul & Joe's fashion collection, usually it's the women's fashion. The dolphin print, however, did not appear in any of the women's clothing; instead, it's from a pair of men's trousers.

DOLPHIN PANTS! That is undoubtedly the strangest phrase I've typed in a while.
Did you buy anything from this summer's Paul & Joe collection?
