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.
NOAH X GREATS ROYALE CHUKKA
Noah founder Brendon Babenzien is the brother of Greats founder Ryan Babenzien, so it only makes sense that the two linked up for a collaboration. The Royale Chukka sneaker they created draws inspiration from 80s skate shoes but features premium materials like Italian suede on the toebox and heel and a smooth Vachetta leather lining inside.
ROLLS-ROYCE 103EX CONCEPT
Price unavailable, rolls-roycemotorcars.com
Rolls-Royce wanted to create a vehicle that captured the vision of what the company’s cars would look like 100 years from now, and this is what they came up with. The driverless car is more like a chariot controlled by artificial intelligence. Rolls’s A.I. system named Eleanor handles the driving while the passenger relaxes in a seat that is more like a luxury sofa under a canopy that opens completely.
VICTORY PRIMA PILS CAN
$9.99 (six-pack), victorybeer.com
Pennsylvania craft brewer Victory’s pilsner, Prima Pils, has long been one of the most refreshing beers you can drink. Now it is available in cans to make it even more adventure-friendly. An added bonus is that you get to shout “Victory!” Johnny Drama-style every time you crack one open.
PRYMA NOTTE CARBON
Pryma maxes ultraluxurious headphones, so it makes sense that they draw inspiration from another luxury market, sports cars. The new Pryma Notte Carbon headphones dropping in early July are made from real carbon fiber, not some plastic designed to look like carbon fiber, and are painted with the same paint that is used on Ferraris.
FAIRENDS X ARMITAGE & MCMILLAN SHIBORI BALL CAP
Denver menswear store Armitage & McMillan teamed up with FairEnds to create what may be the perfect summer baseball cap. Each lid is hand-dyed using natural indigo by textile designer Edie Ure. That means no two hats look alike, but every one looks fresh.
