Gather Brooch $4,200
Melanie Bilenker's heartbreakingly intimate vignette etched on a simple brooch is a one-of-a-kind accessory. The nude woman expresses something elusive on both sides of the enamel pin, both in her face and her sinewy pose.
Danh Vō Baggu Tote $40
Vietnam-born Danish artist Danh Vō is known for his conceptually driven sculptures. Often incorporating political or historical references, Vo’s work—like this limited edition Baggu tote for Marian Goodman Gallery—speaks to his exploration of the power of symbols through the subtle application of an American flag.

A Wooden Tree
Marimekko Mr Roes $51
Designer Kirsty Anderson creates a wood nymph's fantasy world with her repurposed fabric-covered vintage pieces.

Paul Smith Signature Stripe Football $410
Paul Smith's signature stripes feature on a limited edition, 100% leather football designed in celebration of this year's World Cup competition. With an edition of just 250 balls, getting your hands on one is as hard as scoring a winning goal—but for the design enthusiast, likely just as rewarding.
American Design Club
The Cornhole Project $500
The American Design Club gives the classic backyard bag-toss game a handsome facelift with The Cornhole Project.

Lost Destination Prints $59
Illustrated by Stephen Millership for Manchester-based design studio Dorothy, the Lost Destination series of lithograph prints features Brutalist concrete architecture from the 1960s and '70s. As Dorothy's Ali Johnson explains, "Love them or loathe them, there's something poignant about how these buildings once symbolized a 'brave new world' only to be dismissed, derided or demolished by the occupants of future they looked towards."

Levi's RED denim and silk slipper shoes are a marriage of style and comfort that you're bound to wear beyond the bedroom.

Cool Hunting + ECOALF Anorak $175
A limited edition and highly packable pullover made of fabric from recycled fishing nets, the collaborative anorak we created with Spain's ECOALF channels our obsession with streamlined aesthetics, quality materials and a dedication to innovation. Salvaged fishing nets undergo a six-step process to break down the tough fibers into a super soft fabric, and allows our anorak to be lightweight enough to pack down into its own kangaroo pouch. Weighing just 5.15 ounces, it's ideal for tossing in your backpack, purse or picnic basket.
X2 Gagosian Edition Camera $2,999
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.

Blood and Tears
Martinique Sunglasses $250
Bored with spotting the same styles across faces in NYC, Holland-born Alex van Klaveren and Washington native Zoe Nightingale took their mutual obsession with shades to launch The Monocle Order. Their limited edition, Martinique frames in fantastic blue on blue are handcrafted in Turkey using zyl acetate (a renewable resource) from Mazzucchelli—a company long known for its investment in plastics R&D. They use a technique which injects pigment into the plastic, meaning they're that much more brilliant and will last that much longer.
