You might not have noticed yet, but there have been some changes at OPUMO. Our new-look website streamlines the user experience and we’ve welcomed a selection of exciting new brands to the OPUMO family. Most of this week’s top 5 items come from fresh new labels because we like to introduce these brands in the way that we – and our readers – know best, in the top 5 items to drop this week. This week we’re taking a look at the sustainable knitwear from Artknit Studios, VIU’s timeless sunglasses, Bauhaus-style watches from TID Watches, Peytil’s minimal art prints for the home and classic Scandinavian interior design from Northern.
Milan-based Artknit Studios
operates on a strict zero-waste policy to produce its premium sustainable knitwear. Take The Perkins Sweater
for example. This luxury men’s knit
is crafted from 100% extra-fine merino wool made in Italy by Zegan Baruffa Lane Borgosesia. An immaculate rib-knit pattern means that this merino wool crewneck sweater
is perfect for casual or formal styling as well as ensuring a long life for the garment.
can send a message like few other garments. VIU’s The Hustler sunglasses
exude quiet confidence. The bold all-black acetate frames are a fairly traditional shape but feel contemporary thanks to a slightly narrow design. Every pair of VIU sunglasses comes with high-quality lenses that boast anti-reflective, anti-scratch, water and dirt-repellent qualities. Of course, we wouldn’t champion any men’s sunglasses if they didn’t protect against UVA and UVB rays. Find out more about this in our guide to wearing sunglasses during winter
Founded in 2012, TID Watches
has made a name for itself in the competitive and fiercely loyal watch market through a pioneering approach to collaboration. Working together with creative studios and artists, TID Watches presents a collection of minimal watches for men
that veer from the beaten path. TID Watches No.3 Builders Club Edition
uses the timeless No.3 design as its base on which London-based creative studio Builders Club used colour to represent how an ordinary moment can trigger emotions, memories and dreams.
’s minimal art prints
take inspiration from fashion, sculpture and street art. This striking home art print comes in a limited edition Faberblau colour which jumps out when styled in minimal, Scandinavian-style interior design. As this print is limited edition, each piece is signed and numbered in the bottom corners and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Peytil Faberblau
is a simple way to instil your home with a sense of unique creativity.
The daybed is a piece of furniture often overlooked – find out why your home needs a daybed
. We often wonder why they’re overlooked, especially when Northern is producing pieces like this Dark Blue Daybe Armrest
. Midway between a sofa and a daybed, Daybe is the perfect spot to kick back for a short read. When you’re looking for a more permanent position, you can detach the backrest and armrest to form a comfortable bed that doesn’t involve the usual finger-trapping coils, springs and levers.
