Coke’s doing some cool stuff with their bottles for Star Wars these days. Unfortunately they’re limited to certain locations. First, Galaxy’s Edge got that cool mini bottle that caused some headaches at airport security. Now, Singapore’s getting light-up bottles:
The new Omega Seamaster that’s coming out for the next James Bond movie No Time To Die has been revealed. Some will hate it, but I absolutely love it. Commercially pure Grade 2 Ti is used. There hasn’t been many mass production watches I’ve been excited about in a long time. I’ll be putting thought into buying this one. $8,100 to $9,200 depending which strap/bracelet you choose:
They’ve had the Nike Mags in previous releases. Upcoming includes a CGC 9.8 Incredible Hulk #181, which is probably a $40k comic at that condition. There’s some OG Nike Jordan 1s from 1985 in the pipe; a 1978 Rolex Daytona Big Red; some oddities in my eyes like a Birkin bag and LaCroix fnnch drink can paintings. A bunch of other street art-connected stuff as well. Downloading the Otis app gives a list of upcoming stuff.
Certainly not the end of Oakley; the brand will be alive and well way after we’re all gone. But it is the end of the Oakley era that most of us fell in love with, as it realigns itself with modern sensibilities.
You never get to hold the item itself, but you do own a share in it. I wouldn’t bet on it having a high return on the investment, but big props for the creativity and the idea that you can sell ownership of some unobtainable items for most.
I know Oakley’s been looking to move up market for a while, but a collab with Prada seems odd from a brand positioning perspective. But then again, Essilor-Lux licenses Prada for eyewear, so I suppose I shouldn’t be all that shocked:
Yet another yawn-inducing Frogskin collab,but the buckle on the microbag is awesome. Almost bought a pair just for that reason but wised up before checking out. I do think you get 10% on your first order however (just don’t check out immediately; a separate e-mail with a discount code comes about half hour later):
The PS5 dev kit turned out to be real. Usually the first dev kits that are given to developers prior to a system’s release are simple functional blocks of metal/plastic rather than what we see on the end product, but this one has some artistic/complicated design elements. It makes me think the PS5 will have at least some retained design cues when it’s revealed next year. Seems unlikely but we’ll see:
Bollinger puts out really cool James Bond limited editions every so often. For their 40th anniversary partnership with 007, they're putting out a special edition commemorating Moonraker. Super cool packaging for £4,500:
Back when Skyfall was released, they put out a cool edition as well:
My favourite was from Quantum of Solace with the chrome bullet casing:
And there’s also the Spectre one and another recent anniversary one:
