Bally Menswear SS14

In 1952, Bally sponsored the Tour de Suisse, a major source of inspiration for Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler’s Spring 2014 collection. The bicycling theme carried from an update of an archive cycling shoe, to the technologically-advanced materials used. This sport-minded collection nicely intersects function and luxury: smartly fitted, but totally moveable, with a handsome palette that works beautifully with the materials, ones we are all too used to seeing in plain black or obnoxious neons.

Cord Organizer By To-Mo-Ni

Japanese designer Naoto Yoshida found a creative use for scrap wood from furniture construction with the Wrapqarw, a simply shaped tool that wrangles your excess cords and wires. Produced in Hokkaido by to-mo-ni, Wrapqarw is available in three sizes and multiple woods, including a few really interesting, more rare varieties. The design is a smart and elegant way to alleviate the tangle of headphones in your bag, or long cords running from one device to the next.
