This extremely stunning, extremely Italian, Bugatti 16c Galibier, is a pure and unadulterated exercise in excess. Don’t get me wrong this car is just beautiful, gorgeous, mind bogglingly pretty, but Its become so convoluted to the point where the true beauty, the engineering beauty of the Veyron, has lost all meaning. And the custom luggage doesn’t help the case.

 

I love Bugatti, their history speaks for itself, that is why I will withhold final judgement until the car is launched in 2015.

 

Tell us what you think.

Bespoke: a term used worldwide to describe an individually-tailored or custom-made product or service.

Derived from the word ‘bespeak’ (to speak or stand for something), it has been used as far back as the 16th century, to describe specially ordered goods.

In my opinion, it certainly is a fitting word to describe the piece below.

Without an ounce of exaggeration, this could very well be the most beautiful custom-made Nike Air Force One that I have ever seen.

For grown folks who have many “leather-bound books” & whose pads smell like “rich mahogany”…

All jokes aside though, a job very well done by The Maverick Project for Nike.

“Two life-long sneaker aficionados, Carlos Sanchez and Tim Rodrigues, secured the coveted winners’ circle on Marcus Troy‘s Maverick Project recently.
The prize, to collaborate on a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke.

Follow an intense design session at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer, the result was a study of “grown”, “classy and original”, each a correlation to the 3 materials used – waterproof wool, leather, and Kevlar.

Like fine Scotch whiskey and cigars, a deep hue of mahogany brown translate each participants’ character perfectly.

For that added personal touch, the lettering on the lace dubrae spell out the names of Maverick Project‘s 2 winners.
A fine reflection of all 3 men’s curated pursuits.”

Nixon has released The Axe! A beautiful series of watched that sure to please any hardcore enthusiast who still wants to be suave.. Hehe.. Rather different from their normal sleek, contemporary watches.

“This vintage, motorcycle inspired watch is all durability and versatility and features two, hand-worked Horween leather band options. As the oldest continuously running leather tannery in the U.S., Horween has deep and strong roots in all the right places. Wear The Axe as either a wide cuff option or simply remove the cuff to reveal a slim, classic leather band style. Additionally, The Axe features a 3-hand Japanese quarts movement with date function, a 100-meter stainless steel case with hardened mineral crystal.”
