Forged by a dreamy collaboration between Leica and contemporary art savant Larry Gagosian, the X2 Gagosian Edition Camera is limited to a mere 100 units. A camera as artistic as the photos it takes, its all-metal construction is finished with high-contrast white leather and black paint splatter, for an exterior design that is as stunning as the technology contained within.
Caroline Ventura's minimal jewelry brand brvtvs might be subtle, but clearly makes a sophisticated statement. Handmade in her NYC studio, this 14k gold band is delicate and easily paired with other accessories, but the inside features a hidden detail: a gorgeous conflict-free diamond. Available in sizes 3 to 7, with a white or black diamond, the ring measures a super-fine 2mm.
With education as its primary function, STEMI's hexapod kit teaches users how to build a six-legged robot and then program its movements. Of the many brain-expanding elements, a better understanding of 3D models and electronics' technologies are applicable beyond the exciting toy. All tutorials are housed online and everything users need comes in the box. Smartphone controlled, the Hexapod itself is an educational toy unlike any other.
Whether you're suffering from post-holiday blues or a case of the Mondays, usually the best treatment is to kickstart your creativity. One easy and affordable way to do that is a good old doodle or freewrite. This notebook from Poketo is especially useful because it quite literally tells you to get creative—the front (and back) say "Art Every Day."
Joining forces again, Australian brands POMS and Pared have created new sunglasses for 2017 and while they are decidedly retro, they are also present day-playful—thanks to some dangly details. Both arms of the new design come complete with a silver and Swarovski Briolette charm attachment, for some seriously fun flair. Available in six colorways (tortoiseshell, black, lilac, clear, ivory or pink) these sunnies offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. (Price is in AUD.)
Joining forces for the second time, Beats by Dre and Alexander Wang have released a pair of super-functional, wireless headphones. These limited edition, over-ear headphones are foldable for easy transporting, and have chic, crocodile-embossed leather ear-pads. Also coming with a matching gray leather case, these headphones combine Wang's sleek style and Beats' impressive sound for a solid collaboration.
Rather than donning a black or gray raincoat, or even the standard yellow version, why not bring radiance to the storm with one of Gorman's brightly colored offerings. Our pick is the Harlequin, with its rainbow hues and scribble-like pattern. With elasticized toggles on the hood and hem to keep you encased, you'll stay dry in this cheerful number. Available in S/M or M/L.
This set of six differently shaped plates, with six different faces, was made by the very talented French artist Jean Jullien for Case Studyo. Hand-cast in porcelain, the plates are also in an array of colors—from coral to mint green and pale yellow. Of course each character is endearing in Jullien's trademark way, and the fact that they are all different shapes, colors and sizes only adds to the charm. Made in an edition of 250, these plates are set to ship in February. (Price is in Euros.)
More than a regular bag to tote your goods around (though it will do that), this bag from Power & Light Press donates all proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Listing all the services that PP offers—perhaps for those who believe it exists purely to provide abortions—the bag is simply printed with various essentials like pap smears, counseling and more. (Note: they are changing "mammogram" to "breast exam" for all future orders.)
Made from 100% brass, this gorgeous Philodendron leaf mobile is one plant you will never kill. Since the material will develop a patina as it ages, it can be hung somewhere warm and dry to slow the process—or the opposite to hasten it. Crafted in Portland, Oregon, it ships flat and needs no tools for assembly.
Far from a traditional calendar, this wooden 3D Dodecal designed by Ric Bell makes for a beautiful desk accessory. With 12 faces (aka a dodecahedron) this calendar has the months and days laser-engraved on each side—so all you need to do is flip each month. Made from sustainably sourced European Sycamore wood, this piece weighs 320 grams and has been handcrafted using both traditional woodworking techniques and technology. Price is in British Pounds.
Made from 100% natural fair-trade hemp, Shed collars for pets come adorned with all kinds of playful and provocative patterns. From marijuana leaves to dinosaurs, smiley poop and boobs, they are each as silly and cute as the next.

With 100 recipes for dishes and drinks from beloved NYC cafe Egg Shop, the upcoming cookbook (which is available for pre-order now) is full of yummy treats. Not only does the book include super-helpful egg-cooking techniques, there are also tips on sourcing quality bacon and the best kind of cheese for melting. We're looking forward to attempting the delicious Egg Shop B.E.C at home.
Measuring 8.375 inches, this Pizza skate deck is bold and definitely not for carb-free skate enthusiasts. This split-stain deck comes with a sheet of grip (black or clear) and has a decidedly retro vibe.
It might not seem like 9000 bottles is a small batch, but when considering global distribution, this product quickly becomes scarce. Continuing their celebrated Tun 1509 series, No 3 features 31 single malts married in a tun hailing from 31 different casks, including 12 sherry butts distilled between 1989 and 1992; 11 American oak hogsheads distilled in 1989; and eight refill American oak butts distilled in 1992 and 1993. The resulting flavor profile is Balvenie through and through—with that Speyside vanilla sweetness upfront but layers of spice below.
From RVS' "Rebirth" collection, the Palladium 001, comes in several colorways—though this silver version is a true stand-out. While the perfectly round lenses offer a retro vibe, the high, arched bridge is a contemporary twist. These limited edition shades—made of 100% solid silver—are simple, modern and minimal. Made in an edition of just 10, they are super-exclusive, and will surely stand the test of time.
You don't need to know much about Port, a fortified wine, to enjoy what Croft has done with this 10-year-old tawny. Spice and oak flavors (vanilla and caramel) unite beneath the smooth red fruit-driven blended wine base. This is a delight to drink straight, but Port has also been factoring into cocktails recently—and for good reason.
