Simple, Smart, and Wearable

Simple, Smart, and Wearable

First it was the desktop computer, then it was the laptop, and then it was mobile devices. What’s next in the progression? Many speculate the wearable device… and if it’s anything like this concept by Zissou then we’re all for it! Wrist-Borne combines the functionalities of fitness-tracking band, cellphone, and wristwatch into one device that focuses on practicality and ease-of-use in a surprisingly simple way. No buttons, no knobs…it’s the opposite of the Swiss army knife in this category, and that’s why it works!

Shockproof Backpack

Shockproof Backpack

The Juggernaut cyclist’s backpack aims to protect the rider as much as the contents in the event of an accident or fall. Composed of rigid yet lightweight CURV thermoplastic material, the backpack hugs the wearer like a motorcycle fairing, offering added protection to the areas most susceptible to injury including ribs, shoulders, kidneys, and spine. With its aerodynamic teardrop shape, ergonomic straps and overall lightness, the cyclist will barely know its there… unless they fall, in which case they’ll be glad they were wearing it!

Backpack Body Fusion

Backpack Body Fusion

Ok, so if you turn it around it would sorta look like one of those pregnancy simulators… but it’s because of these natural curves that the Fusion Ultimate Black backpack is so darn comfortable! The ergonomic design follows the natural curvature of the body to make it flexible, comfortable, aerodynamic and easy to wear for longer periods of time. In full grain calf leather it’s also durable enough to take almost anywhere.

Mortal Time

Mortal Time

Time is a great reminder of the fact that there are some things unexplainable about this world we live in. For example faith, belief and hope, all come to us at a time when we need them the most. To signify the importance of god and faith, we have here the Crux Watch.

Tactile Time

Tactile Time

Designed for the seeing-impaired, the Touch It watch makes it possible to feel rather than view time on its face. Hours and minutes are represented by raised bumps that rotate underneath a flexible surface, providing a tactile way of reading the time. While it was designed primarily for the blind, it’s also a great way to check the time without being rude!

Clip Chic

Clip Chic

For the not-so-serious businessman/woman, the Clip Bag playfully borrows its form from a common office item… the binder clip! Constructed of wool felt and aluminum tubing, the bag functions so well you might forget just how clever it is.

Destroying Time

Destroying Time

The Digital Destruction Watch is a good analogy for how old has to make way for the new. The watch features a face where the analog dial seems to have been destroyed by the elements and made way for the digital era. Measuring a nifty 38 mm in diameter, the timepiece is good for both men and women. Specs include a digital LCD screen, time in a military style 24 hour format, a crown button that switches between time, second, and date modes, as well as activate the backlight.

Reflective Clothing for the Modern Cyclist

Reflective Clothing for the Modern Cyclist

In Los Angeles, it’s not uncommon to hear horror stories about cyclists in motor accidents, which is precisely why Angeleno designer Brett Clouser started this unique line of reflective cycling wear. Unlike standard neons, this minimalist jacket is savvy enough to wear out socially. It also collapses into a compact pouch, making it easy to store in your pocket. A reflective application on the jacket shines light directly back to its source, making it almost 400% more reflective and easier for drivers to see cyclists.

Eyewear in Perfect Harmony

Eyewear in Perfect Harmony

The right pair of specs are all about balance and FLEYE’s premier design has got the solution nailed! Sure the eyewear is attractive, but the magic is in the adjustable nose pads affixed to a single piece of flexible titanium thread that gracefully loops through the nose bridge. It’s strong, durable and accentuates the aesthetic of the glasses with colors that match the style of the frame. Genius!

Corky Frames

Corky Frames

Love these PVD coated, half cork fames. Designer Marc Tran has done a great job trying to marry very different elements and make them compliment each other. This new asymmetric frame combines contrasting materials and yet maintains their individual identity. Pretty cool if you ask me!
