What is Reductionism?
Inspired by the New Range Rover Velar, we dig in to the less-is-more philosophy

“Reductionism is about taking away excess in design,” says Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, and the Range Rover Velar, the brand’s newest vehicle, delivers on that maxim. From its debut at the London Design Museum to our first...

adidas Originals by Alexander Wang
Mid-Top Primeknit Sneakers
$195

With a prominent leather tongue, tonal rubberized appliqués embossed at the heel, and splashes of color, these black mid-top Primeknit sneakers by adidas Originals and Alexander Wang are the perfect balance of subtle and loud. Their elasticized sock-style ankle offers plenty of comfort, and of course they have great support for stomping around.

American Heirloom
Wooden Coffee Scoop
$38

Certainly better than plastic, and with a more nostalgic warmth than metal, this wooden coffee scoop is available in walnut or maple. It can be personalized on the underside of the bowl or on the handle, to elevate a morning coffee routine. Holding a tablespoon of coffee, each scoop also comes with a hot pink leather strap to hang it up.

Amarula
Cream Liqueur
$24

Amarula's cream liqueur is made from fermented marula fruit—which only grows in sub-Saharan Africa—so the poaching crisis decimating the African elephant population hits close to home. In a new campaign to raise awareness, from now to the end of 2017, the company will donate $1 for every bottle sold in the US to conservation non-profit WildlifeDIRECT. For cocktail ideas: we like spiking our Amarula in an after-dinner coffee for a decadent, velvety finish.

Ippodo Tea
Matcha Starter Kit
$60

With everything needed to start a matcha obsession, Ippodo's matcha tea kit includes all items required for regular and consistent matcha-making. There's a strainer, whisk, bamboo ladle, whisk stand and (of course) ceremonial-grade matcha, but the kit's booklet might be the most important item as it offers guidance through the matcha preparation ritual.

Parachute
Waffle Robe
$119

Less formal, lighter and cooler (temperature-wise) than "hotel style" plush robes, this 100% Turkish cotton robe dries the body beautifully. Thanks to its woven waffle texture, it also feels like being wrapped up in a cloud. Parachute understands how hard it is to keep things white—especially if you're a coffee drinker—and offers two different non-white colorways: tan or grey.

Thomas Letourneaux
Customizable Ephemeris Watch
$299

To honor the most important date of your life thus far—or one you deem truly worth commemorating—this ultra-slim Thomas Letourneaux-designed wristwatch features a customizable dial that displays the position of our solar system's eight planets on the selected date. Custom-made, this piece takes around 14 days to complete. A stainless steel dial and case complement the leather strap nicely, though a Milanese strap is also presented as an option. This is also a MoMA Store exclusive.

Adam Higton
Hand-Stained Jigsaw Puzzle
$35

Intended as an artist's edition (and not necessarily safe for kids), this lovely jigsaw puzzle by British artist Adam Higton has been made in a limited run of just 25. Each one is signed, hand-stained (therefore not identical) and comes in a screen-printed box. Price is in Pounds.

Krug + Berluti
Wild Journey Champagne Backpack
$6,500

For a third year, prestige champagne house Krug has partnered with Italian luxury brand Berluti on a bag. This year, the Wild Journey champagne backpack features Berluti's signature Venezia leather on the outside, finished with a dark cherry patina. Inside, however, one finds thermofoil lining with a removable insulated insert. This creates the perfect nook to cart Krug champagne while maintaining an ideal temperature. Further, the set comes with a chrome stopper and two Krug Rosé glasses. It's fancy but certainly efficient.

Ozma
Voyager Golden Record Box Set
$98

The Golden Records (first created to be taken aboard the Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977) were always intended for extraterrestrial ears. Made with 55 greetings in different languages, nature sounds, plus all kinds of music, the contents were chosen by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan. With tracks from Beethoven to Chuck Berry, the records were meant to serve as a welcome for alien life, and an introduction to Earth. Now, the Voyager Golden Records are available for human ears as a three-vinyl box set complete with a 96-page book that includes images transmitted back from the Voyager probes and more.

Ten Speed Press
What We See in the Stars
$11

Beautifully illustrated by artist Kelsey Oseid, the new hardcover "What We See in the Stars: An Illustrated Tour of the Night Sky" explores the long-lasting human fascination with outer space. From identifying and explaining the constellations to myths, stories, science and more, the book contains 100+ hand-painted images. For kids and adults alike, it's a delightful trip into the cosmos.

Phaidon
Betak: Fashion Show Revolution
$100

It's more than the statistics—though "1000 fashion shows in 25 years" certainly stuns with its magnitude. Alexandre de Betak, founder of fashion show production and set design house Bureau Betak, literally set the stage for some of the most memorable moments in fashion history. The client list impresses, but when flipping through 292 pages featuring 450 images, Betak's magnificent vision comes to life and his artistry is revealed in comprehensive form. The book covers four main themes: In Situ, The Set, Lighting and Performance. Betak touched it all.

Scull & Sweep
Men's Catchpoint Softshell Jacket
$130

Developed for real life rowers and the conditions they endure, the Men's Catchpoint Softshell Jacket makes for a durable, dynamic outwear item with uses beyond sport. Several technical elements tackle transitional weather, including water-repellent and wind-resistant material. It's breathable and offers two-way stretch. A soft-brushed nylon inner lining and a 1.5" front zipper velcro storm flap-closure helps moderate temperature. Further, all that happens to come in a well-tailored silhouette.

Steve "ESPO" Powers
"My List of Demands" Print
$50

Ever-sincere and absurd at the same time, Steve "ESPO" Powers has put up a new print for sale on his site. "My List of Demands" features Powers' familiar lettering and the demands range from reasonable to vain and ridiculous: cool demeanor, good hair, perfect credit, and more. Measuring 14 inches by 20, this is a signed open edition made in collaboration with Hatch.

The Arrivals
Saana Jacket
$395

With a removable lamb shearling collar, The Arrivals' new Saana Jacket is a modular, aviation-inspired bomber that—despite being intended for women—could be worn by people of all genders. Made from eco-friendly PrimaLoft insulation, it's super-warm and is available in sizes XS through XL.

Quirk Books
Basic Witches
$11

By Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman, the book "Basic Witches: How to Summon Success, Banish Drama, and Raise Hell with Your Coven" is full of spells, potions and enchantments, but mostly dollops of sensible advice. From experimenting with make-up to ending toxic friendships, reading tea leaves and more, there are plenty of tips for self-betterment. Encouraging readers to tap into their inner sorceress, this book is all about empowerment and self-care.

Shinola
Petoskey Stone Watch
$750

Made from Petoskey Stone, a fossilized rock found only on the northern Lake Michigan shoreline, Shinola's new special edition watch uses the stone to create one-of-a-kind watch dials. Polished by hand, each stone is unique and therefore no two (of the 400 available) watches will be the same. Featuring the in-house Argonite 713 movement and a black leather strap, the 38mm watch is unisex and timeless.

PHLUR
Claremont Candle
$68

Hand-poured candles made from 80% vegetable wax and 20% paraffin, PHLUR's newest addition not only offer delightful fragrances and a warm glow, they are also lovely design objects. Each candle sits inside a round, custom ceramic vessel (complete with a lid) that can be reused to store trinkets and tchotchkes. Our pick is the Claremont fragrance, which was adapted from one of our favorite perfumes from the brand—Olmsted & Vaux. It's citrusy, without being acidic, and is cruelty- and paraben-free.

Omorovicza
Queen of Hungary Face Mist
$90

Purifying and hydrating, Hungarian brand Omorovicza's Queen of Hungary mist also smells divine. With notes of neroli and rose, this mist was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water—the world’s first perfume on record. Made with mineral-rich water from Budapest, it's refreshing and can also work as a post-cleanse toner.

Noah NYC
Cashball Puffer Jacket
$448

Filled with Cashball—an insulation made from recycled cashmere fibers—this Noah puffer jacket is more than better for the environment, it's entirely cruelty-free. Super-functional and warm, the exterior is water-resistant, the fill is 95% recycled cashmere and the lining is 100% cotton Japanese thermal. Available in burgundy, mustard, navy, black or olive.

Raised By Wolves
"Fuck Off" Slides
$38

Made for Mondays is Montreal-based Raised by Wolves' "Fuck Off" collection. Perhaps the best item in the range, these printed slides tell it like it is. Available in several colorways, the blue and white is our pick.
