The Snap Wallet: Like a good pair of bespoke leather shoes

leather-wool-wallet-snap

Known for its quality of shoes, Italian craftsmanship has been applied to the Snap Wallet, making our credit cards more comfortable then they’ve ever been.

Hand stitched, and made of leather and wool, the Snap Wallet is almost like the pocket-sized equivalent of a bespoke suit. Hard Graft, the company behind the Snap Wallet even included a unique red and white fabric tab on the wallet that is their signature. Continue reading

The Ostrich Pillow: The Ultimate Sleep Aid

sleeping-pillow-ostrich3

My first experience with the Ostrich Pillow was a photo someone took on a plane of a man using it for great leisure. The caption of the photo was “The most comfortable man in the world,” and I can only assume that is how you would feel using the Ostrich Pillow. Continue reading

Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves: items of fashion and function

touchscreen-gloves-mujjo3

Perhaps the first designs for the smartphone didn’t take into consideration a vulnerability to the weather. But rarely is the world of consumer electronics first and foremost conscious of nature. For touchscreen technology to function, a certain texture is needed, and it happens that most of the gloves we wear in the winter aren’t suitable for touchscreen conduction. With this problem in mind, Dutch company Mujjo spent rather obsessive hours determining which material would allow us to use our smartphones without ever removing our gloves in the cold.

“Make love not war” tags: A mix of humor and irony in jewelry design

tag-necklace-efva

How may times do we hear the expression “Make love not war” only to wish it would actually take place more often in reality? Multi talented designer Efva Attling is spreading the words of peace and love in a totally unconventional way, calling irony to take her side. She’s using a unisex stamped tag necklace with the message in embossed printing. The tags remind of military badges and here lies the first part of the irony: to write an in fact peaceful message on a symbol of the army. Continue reading

Levi’s commuter collection: Style meets function for cyclists

levis-commuter-jeans

I love riding my bicycle. And as much as I enjoy driving, the act of moving my feet into cyclic movements in order to bring me forward and being responsible for my own balance somehow brings a sense of taking my life in my own hands. Watching parts of favorite neighborhoods move slowly beside and before me, brings a value in the appreciation of time. Continue reading

Listen to sick beats while you run? Need to take some sugar to the Saturday bootcamp? Tired of leaving the keys under the mat? Savvy sportspeople are more and more in need of pockets to carry essentials when working out. The nature of modern sports and sportswear (think super skinny Lycra) can mean that pockets are not big enough or safe enough to carry heavier items like phones, keys, medication and cash. FlipBelt, by Level Terrain, fulfills these needs, simple. Continue reading

Reebok BB 4600 Cinema Pack

reebok-bb-4600

Creative juices were definitely brewing at the Reebok headquarters when the concept idea of paying homage to classic films by shoes hit the table. The latest edition to the Reebok Cinema Pack Collection is the Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark inspired BB 4600. The BB 4600 is by far the best shoe to come out of the Cinema Pack (strictly my opinion). If ambitiously charismatic colorways are more up your alley, then the Purple Rain or Tron: Legacy cinema kicks may be closer to your cup of tea- for all others there is the BB 4600. Continue reading

Peera: Bench & Tool Box

tool-box-peera

That’s something that men in style and women who are not afraid of drillers will most probably equally love. There’s nothing that I dread more than unstylish moments. No, I wish not to wait till repairs in our home are almost over, so that tool boxes and stools are put away. For me style happens every single minute of our lives and having to mend things in our living residences is part of life. So, I guess I’d better do it all in style.

I only choose tools that are both functional and also appeal to me. Same goes for their storage. You can imagine my excitement when I came across Peera, this super pretty wooden stool, which paired with its aluminum case, it also makes a mostly practical tool storage box, that has nothing to be jealous of concerning style and beauty!
