Lofty Aspirations: things we like #2

Lofty Aspirations: things we like #2

Leaky ballpoint in hand, you're circling your material desires in the Index catalogue. Meanwhile, your mum is downstairs cooking egg, chips and beans to the tropical sounds of Neneh Cherry. You didn't want that massive Aiwa walkman, you needed it. 

Reminiscing aside, here are some things we like this week. 

Fjallraven, Kanken

Question - What have Mary Poppins' bag, a clown's car and a Fjallraven Kanken got in common? Well you can fit an unbelievable amount of contents in all three. No wonder the Kanken is so popular with countryside hikers and sidewalk surfers alike.

New Balance, 574 Sport

A classic NB hybrid, the 574 is one of our favourite silhouettes here at Coney Towers and if you love a black trainer as much as us (denim bleed phobia) then prepare for foam heaven.


Pyrenex, Hanko

French mountain wear makers Pyrenex are veritable masters of the art of staying warm. And once you've removed that big winter coat in the pub, you'll still look smarter than the bloke who always wins the quiz.


Penfield, Apex

With big coat season just around the corner, no doubt you've been making a mental shortlist of which new one you'll sport, well look no further. The Apex parka is big and it's a coat and it's going to offer the appearance of a man shooting deer with De Niro. You are that man.


Arne Jacobsen, City Hall Clock

It's not often you can say "that's a beautiful face" without receiving an elbow in the ribcage from your better half, but this wall clock from Danish designers Arne Jacobsen certainly justifies the remark. So sleek it could be from the future. www.

Albam, Fleece Zip Jacket

Albam do the simple things so effin' well and this indigo blue fleece is spot on for those dry autumn nights walking the pooch. Plus your sartorial novice Mum might say that you are "very sensible" for wrapping up warm.


Lonely Planet, Culture Trails

Offering the lowdown on the globe's most enchanting jaunts, from 'confronting Soviet ghosts in Bulgaria' to a 'Bob Marley reggae trail' this book will aid your dreams of wanderlust.


Les Basics, Le Leisure Jacket 

Evoking Alain Delon on holiday, this laid back number combines normcore with slick French styling.


Nudie Jeans, Lenny Jacket

Does a lightly quilted check lumber jacket in Italian wool even need bigging up? Probably not.

Leff Amsterdam, Tube Watch

Leff Amsterdam's aesthetic is all about art meeting functionality and this is achieved on their new unisex Tube Watch. Arrive in style, and on time.
