Paper Light Shoes

Paper Light Shoes

No canvas… no leather… just paper! The winner of a design contest sponsored by Teach for America and the U.T. LAB, the Lopez shoe by Christian Lopez features graffiti-inspired graphics on the brand’s Light Wing Franklin LT, Franklin HT, and Trainer models. The super-lightweight shoes are made from paper-like Tyvek, a material often found in mailers and house wrap. Combined with a poliyou insole and EVA foam rubber outsole, it’s durable waterproof, washable and impossibly light at just 1 pound per pair!

A Cafe Gearhead Must-Have

A Cafe Gearhead Must-Have

Inspired by motorcycles of the same name, the Cafe Racer Mechanical Watch aims to recreate the feeling riders have over controlling the engine of their bike. In a similar fashion, the wearer has control over the intricate mechanical components of the timepiece which operates by manual winding. Its masculine, industrial textures, materials and overall aesthetic also reflect that of classic cafe racer style.

Tufted Timepiece

Tufted Timepiece

As you might’ve guessed from the name, the Chester Watch is a tufted twist on the modern timepiece that reflects the intrinsic luxuriousness and old fashioned style of a curvaceous Chesterfield surface. The tufts, representing 3/6/9/12 on the watch face, give it a unique, soft aesthetic and familiar elegance that can easily be dressed up or dressed down with a selection of both rubber and leather bands.

One Slim Wallet

One Slim Wallet

Inspiration for the Radix One Slim Wallet came from a surprising visit to the chiropractor where designer Arthur Wu learned his fat old wallet was causing a slight tilt in his pelvis, contributing to lower back pain. The resulting design is fairly simple, consisting of a silicone band wrapped around two polycarbonate parts to sandwich credit cards and IDs in the middle. Rather than elastic bands that lose their stretch, the silicone band maintains its memory to ensure cards are always kept secure.

Stylin' Steel

Stylin’ Steel

Draped in luxuriously “soft” 304 stainless steel chainmail fabric, Steelyz sandals reflect urban chic style with casual Southern Californian comfort. Not only for looks, the chainmail flows like liquid under every contour, moving organically and in harmony with the natural movement of the foot while gently massaging your soles. The floating chainmail allows air circulation beneath the feet and provides a pleasurable sensation akin to walking down a sandy beach!

Time For A Griffin Emblem Watch

Time For A Griffin Emblem Watch

No matter how many digital versions you may get, none can replace the romanticism of owning a mechanical watch. It has the advantage of living through generations, and being passed on the family as a legacy. The showcasing of the movement through a skeletonized dial, the magic of the construction … irreplaceable! Perhaps this is why we encourage innovations like the Griffin Emblem Watch.
