Every week we welcome in some of the finest pieces of design from around the world, and although it’s incredibly exciting, it’s sometimes hard to keep on track of what’s just landed. So here are five items that we’re all chatting about in the office right now.
As one of the first styles ever launched by the Danish-based brand, the M/S Shopper has grown to become one of the most iconic styles of the Mismo collection – praised by both men and women for its simplicity, functionality and high-quality construction. Featuring a range of small internal pockets perfect for mobile phones or credit cards, the M/S Shopper comes complete with a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap to ensure that you can carry it in any way you see fit.
Inspired by adventure and childhood memories of the beaches of New England, Michael Saiger founded Miansai on the principles of exploration, discovery and the beauty of elevated design. Today, every accessory that the brand produces is conceived in their Miami-based studio, and draws inspiration from the region’s nautical heritage to convey an unmistakable style. This simplistic Sterling Silver / Gold Nyx Cuff is a case in point, and is versatile enough for all but the most formal occasions with its slim, sleek profile and polished sterling silver finish.
Native North has built itself a solid reputation on producing ingeniously tweaked versions of classic men’s pieces, and this t-shirt is no different. Cut with a relaxed fit, it has a slightly wider neck than your average tee, making it easy and comfortable to wear while avoiding an oversized scoop finish. But, what makes this t-shirt particularly special is its unique cotton-slub weave construction which gives the classic Scandinavian nautical stripes a little added texture.
Last week independent US-based brand Oliver Cabell launched their debut collection of premium leather sneakers and now we’ve had a bit of time to digest the all-new offering, we’ve managed to select these all-white Low 1 Sneakers as one of our favourites. There is something so appealing and eternally stylish about the clean aesthetic of an all-white sneaker, which is precisely what makes them so special and so essential. These Oliver Cabell renditions are handcrafted from 3oz full grain calfskin leather from Veneto, Italy, a rugged Italian rubber outsole and delicate, hand-stitched uppers – which not only makes them incredibly sleek and understated, but also a lot more comfortable than most.
Right, here is one of the finest watches you can buy right now for £500. Driven by a Swiss-made ETA 251.474, 23-jewel flyback chronograph calendar movement with 10/+20 seconds accuracy per month, the considered, contemporary aesthetic of Uniform Wares’ M40 Watch is defined by its M-line lunette case architecture in a 316L stainless steel case. The understated, Bauhaus-inspired model is also paired with a British shell cordovan leather strap that is destined to age gracefully over time.
