This Automatic Timepiece Hits $1.1M On Kickstarter For Obvious Reasons

Wrist watch with square watch face is not new, but not many watchmakers can pull it off beautifully. In fact, we can only think of one: Bell & Ross, and just when we thought that’s it, we stumble upon the Rebel Automatic Chronograph Watch by LIV Watches. If you recall, LIV Watches made history when its Genesis X1-A Automatic Watch rolled in over a million in financial backing and watchmaker’s latest endeavor is also making quite a ding on Kickstarter with over a million in funding, making it the only Swiss watch to pass $1 million in sales on Kickstarter twice in a row.

Mariener Eyewear Beats Big Brands To Intro Matte Reflective Sunglasses

Matte reflective sunglasses (or shades, as some would call it) is a fad now, or at least, it is starting to gain some traction now. But like most new fads, these out-of-the-ordinary sunglasses are peddled by big brand names (or maybe just one, for now) and therefore, are not cheap. However, you do not have forego this up-and-coming fashion fad because of ridiculous stickers because there’s Mariener Eyewear. Mariener Eyewear’s existence, like so many startups, is spurred by the lack of cheaper alternatives and so, not surprisingly, the outfit’s line of matte reflective sunglasses is touted as the “first affordable matte reflective sunglasses.” Continue reading Mariener Eyewear Beats Big Brands To Intro Matte Reflective Sunglasses

Design Student Imagined Sneakers Of The Future To Be, Ermmm, Angular?

We talk and hear a lot about the future. Future of transportation, future of housing, future technology, but one thing we almost never talk about is future of fashion, specifically, kicks, and so it is kind of refreshing to pick up a piece that talked about the future of sneakers through a concept rendering. Originally conceived as an entry for the Pensole contest “Fusion of Footwear” by Mexico-based industrial and product design student David Olivares, this pair of sneakers of the future imagines an all-condition footwear that was a collaboration between two German brands: Adidas Y-3 and apparel label ACRONYM, to result in what the designer referred to as a “high fashion utility high-top sneaker,” a boot-high-top hybrid called Y-A FUYU HIGH.

This Uber Sleek Outerwear Comes Standard With RECCO Rescue System

If you hit up the powdered mountains often, you will understand the cost involved. Not only the gears are costly, the essential outerwear is a real hit on the wallet too.

This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked

I would like to think the trend of not tucking in shirt stems from the fact that it gets untucked as easily as it was tucked, and as every men will agree, that is a hell of an annoyance. But what if you really need to tuck it in, like with formal attires? Well, wear a inverted garter belt then. Don’t laugh. I am serious because that’s what the NV S-Holder essentially is. It comes in a set of two, one for each leg, and it works pretty much like the garter belts wore by women in the 50s/60s to hold up their stockings. However, unlike the women’s undergarment accessory which basically pull up the stockings, NS S-Holder keeps the shirt pulled down thus preventing it from being untucked.

Snappies Ditched Plastic For Leather, Made Snapback Hats Look Uber Classy

Snapback hat. It is either you are for or against it. Personally, I am not for snapbacks. Seriously, that crummy, plastic thingy is super ugly and that’s not to mention, it is totally uncomfy when you wear the hat backwards. Amazingly, despite the obvious shortfall, snapback hat’s design hasn’t changed much at all for like, forever. Even some expensive designer labels used cheap plastic for the snapback, which is kind of a reap off considering how much designer hats cost. But thanks to the righteousness in humanity, someone stood up and decided that enough is enough, and it is time for a change. And that change is known as Snappies Hats (or just Snappies).
