Last Monday was Blue Monday – statistically the most depressing day of the year. We’re glad that we all made it through the low points and we all know what that means: it’s only up from here. Instead of locking ourselves away in the cosy warmth of our homes (how terrible that sounds…) January is about getting out and ticking off the year’s to-dos because if you can’t do them in January, when will you do them? In order to tick off to-do lists with any real meaning, you’ll need the help of Native North, Ucon Acrobatics, Banzai Skateboards, Oliver Cabell and Miansai who together make up the perfect errand-running kit.
has put its dedication to using premium materials in order to fight the cold towards creating this season’s warmest hoodie
. Crafted from a super-soft, fleece-backed jersey, the P6 Logo Hoodie
features side panels as well as high-quality elastic ribbing and metal-finished laces. It’s little details like this that put Native North clothing on a different level. This hoodie fits perfectly, styles with anything and is the companion you need when you’re running errands in the January cold.
is a label famed for its futuristic utilitarianism. Each bag, from weekend bags
to functional backpacks
, is designed to be an innovative addition to your everyday carry. The Ison Backpack
is a perfect example of how much technology this brand can fit into a small space. A polyurethane outer coating combines with water-repellent zips to ensure that Ison is a waterproof haven for your load.
If you grew up in the ‘70s, this probably isn’t the first time you’re seeing a Banzai Skateboard
, though it may have been a while since the last time you saw one. Luckily, the iconic skate brand has been revived by a dedicated team and it’s looking better than ever. Many will use this aluminium skateboard
as a relic, keeping it hidden away or even on shoe on a wall and that’s fine, it really is. If, however, you want more than to see the board, if you want to really feel the board, then you’ll be using this sidewalk surfer to shoot you from errand to errand this year.
Another icon revisited, Oliver Cabell
’s iteration of the much-replicated German Army Trainer
is an essential errand runner. This style was designed for the German army as standard issue sportswear during the 1970s and it didn’t take long before the general public grew to appreciate the understated, functional style of the sneaker
. At the hands of Oliver Cabell, this shoe sees a luxury revamp, now constructed using luxury Italian calfskin.
Last but not least, Miansai’s M24 Watch
. What is a day running errands if you’re not on time? Miansai
’s elegant stainless steel M24 Watch is just what you need, the minimal watch face makes reading the time a breeze when you’re on the move and, side note, looks amazing too. A two-handed Japanese quartz movement
means you’re precisely on time, all the time.
