By on Sep 26, 2014

Hard Graft continues to impress, this time with a few iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases and fold wallets for us to drool over. Each piece is made with Hard Graft’s vegetable-tanned Italian leather and fitted with heavy wool felt detailing. There’s a high level of function and form here, with the brand’s All in One case. It’s got a convenient cash/card pocket that’s pretty discrete and it folds into a stand as well. The Wild iPhone 6 sleeve is made from a new washed Italian leather in grey.

Head over to Hard Graft to check out these and other iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus...

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness” // WANDERLUST

By on Sep 16, 2014

WANDERLUST is an eye-opening and mind-broadening exhibition, curated by the cultural producer Sasha Dees. Central to this exhibition is the importance and influence travel has on artists and their work.

Not A Brand Just Ties // Modernizing the Classic Suit

By on Sep 12, 2014

NOT A BRAND JUST TIES Is a small The Hague-based company, owned by Erik and Martijn . They both love to surf. And they both love to wear a tie to complete a fresh outfit. But they couldn’t find a tie that bridged the gap between their work and leisure. ‘ We think that a tie is a timeless classic and one of the most versatile accessories for any outfit. But in our opinion traditional ties are boring.’ So they decided to come up with their own creations and start their own company.
