To quote Madonna (something I’m not particularly fond of), “We are living in a material world.” To help you figure out which of the millions of material goods swirling around us is worth spending your hard-earned cash on, we have put together The Want List, consisting of the items we really love this week.
PLAYBOY X HYSTERIC GLAMOUR T-SHIRT
We linked up with the cult Japanese Hysteric Glamour for a dope T-shirt collaboration. The gorgeous Playmate Pamela Horton is featured on the tees, which are available in both long sleeve and short sleeve styles.
DEUS EX MACHINA BEL AIR 1200
Price unavilable, deuscustoms.com
A lot of custom motorcycles are inspired by bikes from the past. For its latest creation, Deus Ex Machina looked elsewhere in the automotive realm. Bike builder Michael Woolaway was attracted to the lines from the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. The seat cowl on what started as a 1998 Harley Davidson Evolution has fins reminiscent of the Chevy land yacht. And the paint color was mixed by hand until it was the perfect tone to pay respect to the car.
MEDICOM TOY PHARRELL WILLIAMS VINYL FIGURE
If you’re the kind of person who would wear a “W.W.P.D.” (What Would Pharrell Do?) bracelet if such a thing existed, this vinyl figure from Medicom Toy will be the perfect way to channel the creative spirit of the creative polymath. It stands nearly a foot tall and is accurate down to the tiniest details such as his jewelry, tattoos, and, of course, his famous hat.
CONVERSE CHUCK MODERN LUX
When you think of the iconic Converse Chuck Taylor, a lot of times the first image that pops into your head is of a beautifully beat-up pair, probably worn by rock star of some stripe. But for its latest approach to the shoe, Converse took a more upscale approach. The upper on the Chuck Modern Lux is constructed from an incredibly soft leather with an embossed tonal All Star patch. The silhouette has incredibly clean lines that look sharp with any outfit.
THULE SUBTERRA CARRY-ON
Anyone who spends a lot of time flying knows that the struggle to find the perfect carry-on is very real. While Thule is better known for their car racks, the company also makes sleek luggage. The Subterra roller bag has all the convenient storage options you need, but its minimal design cleverly disguises a lot of those bells and whistles.
