This week was a continuation of great design, whether it was in a jacket, bag, or a piece of architecture. Some awe-inspiring films also caught our attention, like a beautiful journey in a forest in Colorado or a serene tour of urushi studios in Japan. We also introduced some new brands this week, like LFANT and Commodity from whom we’re sure we’ll see more. Revisit this week’s highlights with us after the jump.


Commodity Cologne

We are delighted to have discovered Commodity, a new fragrance brand with equally new scents like “Book,” “Cloth,” and “Tea.” Their playful illustrations of ingredients in each bottle caught our eyes at first, but we attest that they are just as pleasing to the olfactory senses too.


Florsheim by Duckie Brown Spring/Summer 2014 Shoes

Florsheim by Duckie Brown is always one of our favorite footwear lines and their latest offering this season is another fresh take on classic dress shoes like the gold metallic toecap lace-ups above.


Filson’s “Open Door to Solitude” Video

This incredible short film on the summer travels of Ed Zevely, longtime Filson customer, still have us in awe every time we watch the Colorado high country.


LFANT Artisan Field Jacket

This piece was our introduction of LFANT, a new brand for us. After seeing them at Liberty Fairs, we’ve taken a liking to their colorful statement pieces like this cargo-inspired field jacket.


MONO Hawaii Store

We consistently feature design products from MONO, so we were delighted when Design Milk, another one of our favorite design sites, took a tour of their store in Hawaii.


The Handmaking Process of Urushi Lacquerware

Master craftsmen from the Ishikawa Prefecture of Japan show us how they make traditional lacquerware by hand.


The Mediterranean Pearl Residence

This luxury home in Alicante, Spain, has us begging for warmer weather. It features an elevator, jacuzzi, infinity pool, and more.


Nudie Jeans Geronimosson Aged Trunk

One of the most unique pieces of accessories we’ve seen in a while, this oversized bag from Nudie Jeans is inspired by one from 1920s Germany and can behave as a standalone piece of sculpture.


MOSCOT Sun Collection

Another set of unique accessories, the Sun Collection by MOSCOT was released this past week. The frames have unique color combinations that have us wanting more.
