Manx stamps are hit with trendsetters

Included in Guardian list

An unusual meeting of haute couture and the humble postage stamp has made a list of global fashion icons.

Isle of Man Post Office is releasing a set of stamps in 2018 to celebrate the work of Island designers Thornton and Bregazzi.

Originally hailing from the Island, the husband-and-wife duo have admirers as diverse as Gwyneth Paltrow and the Duchess of Cambridge. 

UK newspaper The Guardian has this week featured the stamp book in its regular rundown of hot trends - with authors claiming 'letter writing is now officially chic'.
