The Japanese textile designers from nowartt supply fabric to a variety of brands throughout the region and for their Fall/Winter 2012 Bag Collection, master-piece takes advantage of their long-standing relationship to offer a pair of tropically-themed daypacks. Even as the weather continues its transition, it’s never to early to begin to dream of summer again and with nowartt’s original artwork, called Summer Santa, placed against a black or white background you’ll have more than enough inspiration. Both bags are carefully crafted in Japan using heavy duty nylon material and are detailed with tan leather on the front and for the zipper pulls while white pads the straps on the back. Head to oki-ni’s online store to grab these bags now.
For Spring/Summer 2013 Herschel Supply Co continues to push their popular Little America bag. New materials and patterns enter the collection including a stand-out bird print version.

With these Meze headphones, we are not talking ebony as in the little black keys on a piano. Rather, the ear cups on these luxe-looking devices are made from the dark, chocolaty ebony tree native to tropic regions. Touted as audiophile quality, they certainly look to be in the upper echelon of the headphones pantheon.
Prices on the three available models range from $140 to $290, which seems reasonable considering the varnished fanciness they present to the world. Plus, each model has something to recommend it aside from the “natural sound” afforded by the wooden housing (the 55 model is foldable, while the 88s feature suspension backed head mounts). We also like the way the cord plugs directly into the headphones and can be stored separately. Is it tacky to wish that the cord had a little mic for cell phone calls?
