Manhattan's women-centric co-working and community space, The Wing, is about to expand to Brooklyn and DC. They've also stocked up their online store with an abundance of positive message-bearing items. One favorite is a recent collaboration with Inner Decay, the "Internet Herstory" T-Shirt. The boxy cut makes it unisex, so this is certainly for feminists of all genders.
Since their launch in 2010, Ressence—designer Benoît Mintiens's groundbreaking watch brand—has continued to release pieces that defy the ordinary, employing a unique disc-based mechanical system and a minimal, geometric aesthetic to match.

Our personal favorite, the Type 1 MRP in grade-five titanium features a night-blue metallic dial. A 42mm case holds the brand's proprietary ROCS 1 module, which powers the timepiece. Only 12 of these watches will be produced.

Drawing upon the geometric "Swiss Style" which originated in Russia, Germany and the Netherlands in the '20s but became popularized by Swiss designers in the '50s, jewelry design firm Rabbitneck created their Lustig ring. In contrasting blue and neon green acrylic, the statement-making (and stackable) piece was hand-assembled. All of the work—from construction to sanding and polishing—takes place in Rabbitneck's Red Hook, Brooklyn studio.
A Japanese-inspired floral pattern punches up these Supima cotton American Trench dress socks.

Also functional as a stool, the table's available in three sizes and six different colorways. It's a sustainable piece of furniture that adds a little whimsy without becoming gimmicky—and it's certainly requires less upkeep than a furry friend.

Beyond its uncommon shape (a signature of the Fiona Krüger brand), the Vanitas wall clock truly impresses with its vivid interior color profile. The result of a collaboration between namesake watchmaker Fiona Krüger and historic manufacturer L'Epée 1839, the Vanitas is an engineering feat with a movement that matches the case (with an escapement appearing as the third eye). As time passes—with the piece offering more than 35 days running time before needing to be wound—the mouth changes and the lips part. This iteration (there's also an all-black version) is limited to 50 pieces.
According to various studies, Americans alone use some 500 million straws every day, and almost every single plastic straw ever made (regardless of whether it's been recycled) still exists in some way on this planet. One little, and very easy, step we can all take to lessen the waste, pollution and eight million tons of plastic trash that ends up in our oceans is adopting reusable straws. This set of four stainless steel straws (two curved, two straight) are BPA-, phthalate-, lead and toxin-free, and will never rust. They even come with a little brush to make cleaning them extra simple.

Designed by Montreal-based illustrator Olivia Mew, this long-sleeve T-shirt looks like it's simply emblazoned with a heart and a teardrop at first glance.

Many of us associate energy with adequate sleeping hours and what we put inside our bodies, but REN's Atlantic Kelp And Magnesium Body Cream helps fight fatigue from the outside. The magnesium PCA and plankton extract helps to boost the cell renewal cycle, while various essential oils (including rosemary leaf oil, sunflower seed oil and more) work to reinvigorate and wake up the senses. Of course the lotion is ultimately hydrating too—thanks to Atlantic kelp extract—and leaves your skin feeling smooth and firm.

With a water-tight tube for flowers (which is also removable), this is a lovely piece of design that's entirely functional.
