The Very Urban Heist

The Very Urban Heist

Crumpler, an Australian bag company, creates chic and smart urban bags, particularly their Heist Collection. The range is an ode to the working professional who doesn’t believe in sacrificing style. Each of the four Heist bags are designed to carry your tech gear and accommodates a 15 or 17 inch Macbook. A common thread between all four bags is a padded laptop sleeve, two internal pockets and a zipped external pocket.

Casting Shadows Of Love

Casting Shadows Of Love

One of YD’s team members is soon to tie the knot, and I’m sure he must have picked the ring already. But just in case he hasn’t I’d like to suggest the “Heart Of Love”, a symbolic expression of love. The ring and pendent design try and replicate the ever-popular image of a wedding ring on the bible with casted “love” shadow, and do a pretty good job of it. Call it trick photography or simply the play of lights; undoubtedly it can’t get mushier or romantic than this!

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

Okay I need to spread the word. A few months ago the OXO company sent me a bunch of their OXO Pop containers for review. I’ve never been one to store things in containers because I only buy enough of anything for immediate use. But things like cereals, rice, and pasta are bulk items. I’ve been on a container storing binge because the OXO Pop containers actually work. Hey, they won the Red Dot 2008 Product Design Award so there’s way more than meets the eye here.

Grocery Bag Chic, Moukisac Review

Grocery Bag Chic, Moukisac Review

Walk into any supermarket today and you’ll see a new trend. People are bringing their own shopping bags. With plastic bags labeled as the evil accomplice to the environmental problem, a number of companies have taken it upon themselves to design grocery bags durable enough for hauling while remaining questionably stylish. After all, being “green” is now a message people want to project so shopping bags have had to evolve into accessories. I’ve been using the Moukisac shopping bag for the past few months and it promises utilitarian chic.

Hair Love Thanks to Remington Shine, A Hot Review

Hair Love Thanks to Remington Shine, A Hot Review

I have semi-longish hair and blow dry almost every other day. It’s a known fact blow drying actually distresses and damages hair so doing it sparingly is key, but if you can’t avoid the heat, the Remington Shine Therapy Dryer may just be the ticket to healthier, shinier hair.

Ringmarks Be Gone

Ringmarks Be Gone

Pilo Pilo ring is a finger ring with a mini cushion attached to it, designed to be both stylish and useful. I myself know I leave all kinds strange marks on my face as I ponder the genius bestowed upon me. I’m not really a ring wearer but I’ve had more impressions of my wrist watch than I care to admit. A cushion on a ring? Hey, I’ve seen stranger and this concept actually makes sense to me.

Form Follows Fashion

Form Follows Fashion

Not a lot of fashion pieces manage to catch our eyes here at Yanko Design. There are of course the few exceptions like the Geek Chic Keyboard Jeans, and the Kevlar Hoodie, but this piece by Sartoria Vico called “Sciarpone” makes a slightly more palatable fashion statement. This clever convertible sweater/scarf design made of 100% Merino wool is perfect for the ever changing moods of my girlfriend and unpredictable spring time weather here in Los Angeles.
