Fjällräven ‘Kånken’ Water Resistant Backpack

“Fjällräven is known for this–their Kånken backpack. It’s a super-old Swedish company, so kids back in the day would always carry these to school. Then they made a revival comeback a couple of years ago.”

Benjamin Booker is doing all right. The New Orleans-based musician hasn’t even dropped his first full-length record and he’s already garnered accolades from both the mainstream and indie music press, he’s performing at a bunch of festivals this summer, including the granddaddy of them all—Lollapalooza—AND he’s opening for Jack White on a handful of (mostly sold-out) U.S. dates in August.

Of course, once you take a listen, you get what all the fuss is about.

Eric Trine Octahedron Sculptures

“I’ve always really liked Eric’s stuff. When I found out that he was friends with Poketo, it was perfect—like we were brothers from another mother.”

New Yorkers are known for their sleek fashion sense no matter what weather. Sandra’s simple, monochromatic look is a perfect example. She manages to beat the heat while looking 100% on trend. Her halter-neck tank, folded mini and white sneakers are super trendy, but her minimalist palette keeps things looking fresh. Toss on a simple necklace and some retro shades, and you’re good to go!

Artecnica Themis Mobiles

“Do you remember back in the day they had those build-your-own solar systems that would come flat and you’d have to, like, puff them out? That’s kind of what this is, but much prettier.”
