One of the most famous silhouettes in eyewear has always been the Porsche Design Aviator with its twist on the classic pilot design, but amplified with oversized lenses and a interchangeable lens system. Handmade in Japan, the P'8613 is that same silhouette with a lightweight titanium frame an a acetate-framed lens that adds a whole new look to the style. You also get another pair of lenses without the acetate to maintain the original's styling.
Though we’ve covered Swedish designer Love Hultén‘s nostalgia rich, arcade inspired objects before, we thought his newest creation deserved another look. Dubbed “Golden Apple,” the walnut wood recreation of Apple’s 1984 Macintosh computer comes complete with a golden keyboard and subtle gold details. The functional and stunningly accurate mini comp also features a disc drive and wooden mouse.
Gothenburg-based Hultén is known for turning to the past for design inspiration. Yet even still, he manages to infuse all he creates with a wonderful sense of timeliness and modernity.
Next month, collectors will have an opportunity to bid on one of those most unique Ferrari builds in the world, a 1953 250 Europa by Vignale. Only 22 of the 250 Europas were built before the introduction of the second series and of the 22, only four were bodied by Vignale. This specific model was shipped to New York in 1953 and was then put on display at the World Motor Sports Show at Madison Square Garden in 1954.
Since then, the car has seen a handful of owners throughout the US and then ended up in Switzerland where it received a thorough restoration and finally ended up back in the US where it won the 2015 Cavallino Classic award and is now coming full circle as it goes on sale at the Driven by Disruption event in New York, where it was originally placed on display nearly 60 years ago.
You've heard the rumors and now they're here. Yes, the Nike Air Mag complete with working powerlaces is a real thing and if you hope to get your hands on a pair you're going to have to pony up big time as Nike plans to once again make them an exclusive limited edition to be auctioned next Spring to support the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. The company has also hinted that this is the first iteration and is currently testing the technology across multiple footwear styles. So don't worry, a mainstream powerlacing Flyknit might just be around the corner.
