Good Stuff 101





01  A beautifully designed product, RIMOWA’s Topas Titanium Beauty Case is reminiscent of the brand’s first aluminium suitcase with grooves produced in 1950. If I were to upgrade, I’d aim for this line. The exclusive aluminium cases with their elegant contours combine low weight with great strength. In the Philippines, RIMOWA is available at Greenbelt 5, Power Plant Mall, Glorietta 4, Shangri-la Plaza Mall, and Newport Mall.

02  Perfect reason to wear Valentino’s rock studs… in the rain. Considering it rains half of the year here, I don’t think we wear enough rubber boots. And rain coats. And hats. Oh well. These Valentino Rubber Studded Boots are so adorable, and we’re still due for more months of rain. If you from order from Luisa Via Roma, you get these boots at your doorstep in 3-5 business days. Plus your custom duties and taxes are pre-paid, so it’ll be hassle free.

03  You know how much I love Warby Parker. They democratized the optical industry with beautiful “designer” frames at a fraction of the price of other designer frames. Like prescription lenses start at $95 while progressives are $295 — for both frames and lenses. And to top it all off, for every pair you buy, Warby Parker donates to a partner in developing countries so they can sell eyeglasses at a low price. They don’t just handout free glasses, they encourage micro entrepreneurship.  Ainsworth by Warby Parker.

04  This is an interesting take on the eternity ring. It wraps around with a sprinkling of pavé crystals in intersecting lines. Crystal Mason Ring, $28 from Bauble Bar.

05  Every time I get a new pair of salt and pepper shakers I always say that it’s my last. But I can’t seem to get enough of cute, whimsical and statement shakers. They are a great way to spruce up your table setting with out having to be matchy-matchy. These Greek Key Salt & Pepper Shakers from Jonathan Adler have a modern and interesting take on a classical motif. And that platinum detailing is just so pretty.

06  So cool, they’re called “Climachill” Rocket Boost Shoes by Adidas. Regularly $140.00, now on sale for $99.99. And for a limited time online, Adidas is giving an extra 25% off on all of their sale items, including their classic lifestyle line, Adidas Originals. Promo code: EXTRASUMMER.

07  Perfect for anyone with space issues at home. The Sapien Bookcase from Design Within Reach by Bruno Rainaldi in 2003 was created as a unique solution for those with a lot of books and little space to store them. By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, the tall Sapien can accommodate up to 70 small and large books in a very compact footprint. (The shorter bookcase will hold up to 50 books. Made in Italy.

08  Jonathan Adler’s Claude Walnut Gossip Bench Set Each 2-Door Unit includes a single removable shelf. Stack up to two 2-Drawer or 2-Door Units on top of each other. Mix the pieces in almost any configuration you can think of. Seven components, two finishes and endless possibilities!
