Test Drive: The Bentley Bentayga
The most powerful, luxurious and expensive SUV in the world can do all the things its customers will only dream of

Premium SUVs are a funny concept—the words "sport" and "utility" are in general tension with the notion of "luxury." The reality is, most customers will never push their SUVs (or sports cars for that matter) as far as they’re capable. But somewhere...

Sagaform
Rounded Base Bar Whiskey Glasses
$25

For anyone who likes to give their whiskey a little swirl before sipping, the Sagaform rounded base whiskey tumbler (which comes in a set of six) makes it all the easier. A central raised point on the glass bottom means it doesn't rest flat, but always angles off into one direction. It's an uncommon attribute that offers up a bit of playful functionality.

Casper
Supima Cotton Sheets
$180

Made from Supima cotton, Casper's bed sheets are extra soft and breathable—a valuable addition to their range of products that aim to perfect sleep. Available in all-white or white and chambray colorways, each set comes with one flat and one fitted sheet and two standard pillowcases. Duvet covers will be available in March.

Lelo
LOKI Wave Vibrator
$219

With express three-day (discreet) delivery, Lelo's LOKI Wave might be the perfect last-minute Valentine's Day gift. The dual motors provide external and internal stimulation and the sleek design is the first prostate vibrator to deliver what the brand calls a "come-hither" motion. Offering 10 different settings, the LOKI Wave (like all Lelo products) is certified Body-Safe.

Sensi Studio
Not Chanel Cross Body Bag
$222

Sensi Studio blends influences from Milan, Miami and the Andes to create something stylish but tongue-in-cheek and charming. If you hate the idea of spending thousands of dollars on a classic quilted Chanel handbag, perhaps Stephany Sensi's adorable, woven "Not Chanel" cross-body is more up your alley. Complete with a braided strap adorned with bright tassels, this bag will add plenty of flair to any look.

Stephen Eichhorn
Circle (Gray) Print
$100

Printed using the highest quality inks on 300 GSM archival paper, artist Stephen Eichhorn's "Circle (Gray)" print is subtle and striking all at once. Made from meticulously cut-out images of flowers, placed together to make an beautifully intricate new artwork, the print (available in an edition of 75) is one that will mesmerize.

James Joyce + Baggu
Smiley Face Reusable Shopping Bag
$25

A happy combination of two of our favorite makers, the James Joyce + Baggu reusable bag takes the UK-based graphic artist's high-gloss painting—"Here For A Good Time, Not A Long Time"—and adheres it to Emily Sugihara's ever-functional ripstop shopper. Made specially for Joyce's "100 Likes" exhibition at Colette. Price is in Euros.

Yenwen Tseng
Fly On The Wall Clock
$50

Designed to resemble a fly crawling across the wall, Yenwen Tseng's "Fly on The Wall" clock might not sound super-appealing in words, but the minimal piece is—in reality—curious and eye-catching. Made in Japan, the clock's oversized hands move in orchestra; the fly is never still.

Objest
Hach Watch
$340

Designed by London-based brand Objest, the Hach watch features a numberless dial that’s anything but boring. Its minimal face is jazzed up by a maze-like geometric pattern that's subtle, but a little mesmerizing. Built from 316L stainless steel, the Swiss-made watch also comes in a range of finishes (including Diamond Like Carbon) and colorways.

Sleepy Jones
Henry Pajama Shirt
$128

With Sleepy Jones’ Henry Pajama shirt, there’s no need to change before heading out to grab a morning cup of coffee. The comfy lounge shirt is cut from a fine cotton fabric and comes with contrast piping, French seams, button cuffs and a chest pocket, so it looks just as good under the covers as it does under a jacket. Matching pajama pants are sold separately.

sagegreenlife
Ambienta Plant Lamp
$270

The mushroom-shaped Ambienta lamp has two settings (grow light and ambient light) and, like a paint palette, has compartments for six plants. Seagreenlife's soil-free plants grow on water, nutrients and a hydroponic growth medium located at the base of the lamp; simply pour water through the top hole when needed. Not only does the lamp feel alive, it allows you to have plants away from the window. It should especially brighten up those dismal bedrooms, basements or other closed-off spaces that don't have a portal to the outside world. They'd also look pretty sweet in dimly lit bars.

Verner
Wood Grain Bomber Jacket
$295

Melbourne-based label Verner jazzes up the classic bomber with its gray marl jacket. With an all-over wood grain pattern and a tongue-in-cheek take on its own name—with "This is veneer" printed along the cuffs, hem and neckline—it's a playful take on an item that can sometimes be anything but. The jacket is made from a soft blend of linen and cotton and also comes fully lined.

Kid O
Mix + Match Animal Toys
$22

These three-piece set of animal toys encourage children to learn, but also explore their own imaginations and storytelling skills. A giraffe, lion and elephant can become an elliaffe or giraliphant or whatever they'd like, thanks to interchangeable ABS parts—made especially for little hands (ages two and up).

Christopher Kane
Lenticular Holographic Hearts Clutch
$525

Made from 55% leather and 45% plastic, this holographic heart-covered clutch by Scottish designer Christopher Kane is perfect for Valentine's Day—or any day. Crafted in Italy, it's a cute but bold accessory that offers a playful sense of movement and will match any good mood.

Bad Marlon
Deauville Pet House
$370

From South Korea-based brand Bad Marlon comes a set of minimalist, design-forward pet homes even humans with envy. Our favorite is the Deauville House, which is built from eco-friendly wood and held together by super-strong magnets, allowing for a quick and tool-free assembly. Cut-outs let pets peep into the outside world while a polyester cushion provides a comfy bed for them to snooze on.

Feit
Wool Hiker
$760

Like the rest of their offerings, Feit’s Wool Hiker is constructed from a seamless slab of leather that's shaped and assembled by hand. Sturdy and winterized, this boot comes with a high ankle collar and a warm wool lining to keep toes dry and cozy when the temperature drops. And due to its naturally dyed all-leather upper, it’ll only gain character with each adventure.

Third Drawer Down
Altered Antique Ceramic Plate + David Bowie
$56

For fans of Ziggy Stardust, this antique floral dinner plate is embellished with David Bowie's face. Charming and colorful, the blend of kitsch and Bowie's now-retro superfuture character is a delightful juxtaposition—one to look at, rather than eat your spaghetti off.

Parra
"Raining Cats" Shower Curtain
$30

Multi-talented Parra (whose work spans from graphic design to illustration, fine art, apparel and homeware) jazzes up the most depressing of homewares—the shower curtain—with his playful designs. Our pick is "Raining Cats," a 100% woven polyester curtain with a printed front that shows off the Dutch artist's signature style. Price is in Euros.

Tessel Supply
Jet Pack 2.0
$140

Sporting a tessellated, triangular upper paneling, the Jet Pack 2.0 is the successor to Tessel Supply's original Kickstarter offering. The sleek backpack features composite faceted panels and a faux fur laptop pocket and is made from PU-coated ripstop nylon, so electronics are protected from weather as well as bumps and drops. New orders will see a mid-February ship date.

J. Hannah + Winden
Fine Necklace
$290

Celebrate your favorite person with this collaboration necklace—made by jewelry designers and good pals Jess of J. Hannah and Becca of Winden. Their "Fine" necklace can represent all the versions of the word, and is available in 14k yellow, rose or white gold—so no matter your boo's style, one will be perfect.

Poketo
Smiley Face Socks
$18

Made from a comfort-forward blend of cotton, polyester and spandex, these cute kids' socks form a smiley face when put together. Available in peach or yellow colorways, the two size options aim to fit children aged between two and five years old. They look cheerful when worn, but also brighten up any clothesline.
