Volkswagen Goes Cashmere

Volkswagen Goes Cashmere

Think of traditional car merchandise and chances are you’ll picture a baseball cap, a mug, or perhaps a logo-bedecked key fob. Well, now Volkswagen is aiming to offer something a little differentlike, say, a cashmere wrap or a pair of slip-on driving shoesfor women. That’s right. Despite earlier concerns that the VW brand was becoming too feminized and in the wake of Nissan’s announcement that it’s set to increase its marketing budget by 20% this year to focus on female consumers, manufacturers increasingly are focusing on women in their dialogue.

Footloose - Adjustable High Heels by Marte den Holllander

Footloose – Adjustable High Heels by Marte den Holllander

The high-heeled shoe is a classic example of a no pain, no gain product. Women wearing them take so much trouble for granted! I decided to challenge this compromise. Would it be possible to make a shoe having all advantages of high heels, just as well as the comfort of flats I designed a shoe with a high heel, which can be changed into a shoe with a low heel.

Rosendahl’s Watch III by Flemming Bo Hansen

When you cut away all the frills, it is hard to imagine how any watch could fail to resemble Rosendahl’s Watch III, designed by Flemming Bo Hansen. The watch case, clock face and strap form a complete entity. No digressions; no convolutions. A complete unit, almost like a deep black stroke of genius on your wrist, with only one function: to tell you the time. And, perhaps, to look good, too…

Elio – Linear Scale Watch by Pierre Haulot & William Boullier

The relationship between the consumer and his watch is really important. The consumer identifies himself with his watch. It needs to reflect his personality and his way of life. Life is a succession of short or long term goals. Elio Linea is a watch which shows you your position on a linear scale (like a computer downloading gauge). You can visualize your position in a predetermined period, with the time spent and the time remaining.

Killer Diamond Engagement Ring by Tobias Wong

Killer Diamond Engagement Ring by Tobias Wong

Designer Wong makes engagement rings that can kill you. The razor-sharp diamond point is set into the ring so it can’t get knocked out when you smash someone’s face in, and the edges of the ring are really soft so it won’t cut into your skin during the pounding. It’s romantic because it means, “Will you marry me” but it also means, “I can’t always be there to protect you so if some jerk won’t stop bothering you, puncture him with this.”
