It’s All About The Memories

It arrived in the mail today from France, and a wave of nostalgia waved over me while ripping off the plastic wrapping as a distinct scent hit my nostrils.  The scent immediately reminded me of fresh new yearbooks at the end of the school year.  Back then I couldn’t wait to flip through those pages containing all the greatest memories of the year, and I certainly didn’t wait to jump into “All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2012” today.

Just like our yearbooks, “All Gone” features something for every stereotype in school plus so much more!

Now there’s no way I would ever be able to acquire everything in this book just like I don’t talk to about 90% of my high school friends, but years from now I know I’ll enjoy flipping through memories.  Now if I could just get all the designers/collaborators/artists to sign my All Gone yearbook!

Red book limited to 750 copies and already sold out online.  Black limited to 1250 copies and can still be purchased here.

A Shot In The Dark

‘Tis the season for holiday party hopping. Whether it be with coworkers, family, or friends good times are guaranteed, but so is a little (or a lot of) drama. You know you want to have a good time, but let’s be serious you don’t want your boss or religious Aunt Remy seeing you down that second martini and thinking you’re a lush.
What better way to secretly take the edge off than Cynthia Rowley’s Flask Bangle! How simply genius/gorgeous is this???

One question remains… How many vodka filled bangles can you wear per wrist before you can’t lift your arms?

Doernbecher Nike+ FuelBand

Get your Fuel Points up son!  You may or may not have heard this in the last year or so.  Nike dropped a great motivating tool to help you shed those extra lbs early spring ’12.  The purpose of the Nike+ FuelBand is to calculate “Fuel” based upon daily activities.  Activities aren’t limited to running, jogging, calisthenics, aerobics, p90x, insanity, crossfit, etc.  Everything adds up to fuel…skating, mall walking, ballin, making it rain at fine gentleman’s establishments, walking to the h2o cooler in the office, etc., it all counts.  You set your daily goal, and once your goal is hit, HOORAY!  Seeing those points add up to your goal can get motivating, especially at the end of the day.  You may find yourself doing 100 jumping jacks at 11:59pm to hit that goal!  You can also link it to your iPhone/iPod or android mobile, while keeping up with your FuelBand compadres through your social network.  The FuelBand has already released in the 3 colors, however this special little guy is part of the Doernbecher Charity Series, and features a two tone blk/blue band with corresponding blue LEDs.  Will this be a sign for more FuelBand collabos to come?  Like the shoes, the FuelBand will have proceeds going to the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and will be a limited release found 11/30/12 at the following locations: Nikestore.com, Nike Portland, Nike NYC, and 21 Mercer. Get your points up son!

Alexander McQueen’s Holiday Skull Candy

I have always desired to own one of the late great Alexander McQueen’s knuckle duster clutches, but unfortunately could never bring myself to fork up two to three thousand dollars on such a small bag.  Well this year they made it even harder to resist with the introduction of the Snowflake Knucklebox Clutch.

Featuring white Nappa leather exterior and interior & Swarovski crystal skull and snowflake ring details it is the perfect winter accessory.  With a $3200 price point I’d have no more cash left to fill it with, but at least I’d still look amazing with only my I.D. and lip gloss inside.  If you’re lucky enough to get one or wanna make someone really happy this Christmas the clutch is exclusive to Alexander McQueen flagship stores and alexandermcqueen.com

While on the site I was able to take my eyes off the clutch for a few seconds to notice some other lust worthy items (some with more realistic price points).

Black/Ivory Scarf Wrap Bracelet $295. Exclusive to Alexander McQueen Flagships and alexandermcqueen.com

Atom Flower Skull Knucklebox Clutch $2800

 

Silver Atom Flower Skull Cocktail Ring $315 and Bracelet $875

Basso & Brooke X Cambridge Satchel Company

Who didn’t want a Cambridge satchel when they first started popping up all over blogs and on celebrity shoulders? I think the neon collection was probably the biggest hit; but no, I still didn’t grab any of those despite the low price points.  And now I’m so glad I waited.

The UK based masters of digital prints Basso & Brooke have teamed up with the Cambridge Satchel Company to produce 3 limited edition leather satchels.  Only 100 units of each bag were made, and all are covered in the duo’s amazing power prints from their A/W 2012 collection.  I think the combination of classic structured leather and modern digital imagery is what makes these so perfect.

Lagoon Special 11″  approx. $230

Geo 126 13″ approx. $315

Lagoon 14″ approx. $347

How amazing are their prints?  If you’re lucky enough to get one, be sure to expect a plethora of envious stares and inquiries.

All are available for pre-order now via Basso & Brooke
