Tis the season to be bold and bright. This Jack Spade Pouch ($95) makes the perfect receptacle for your small laptops, tablets, and other tech, so you can keep the goods away from scratchy surfaces on the inside of your bag. There's nothing worse than finding a large key scratch on the backside of your iPad amirite.
The Jack Spade pouch is crafted from cotton with a water-resistant wax coating, and a leather upper lining to keep things classy. Your guy might even appreciate such a pouch for his tablet this holiday.
>> The Organic girl continues to grow up as John Patrick's collection matures, and this season, he says, “She’s a modern-day vagabond. She’s young but sophisticated, and wants an older, more romantic experience of dressing.”
True to the collection's name and conscious sensibility, there were coats of vegetable dyed wool, jackets from recycled cashmere, and trenches from recycled cotton or recycled PET bottles alongside the pretty floral dresses. Amanda Henderson, a knitwear consultant and recent FIT graduate, handknitted the cozy and covetable wool sweaters — in both cropped and knee lengths — with “needles the size of broomsticks.” And show stylist Lauren Goodman topped off the looks with lace-up, heeled Hunter welly boots — "[It's a] nice marriage between the brands — elegance for everyday life," she noted — and masai belts by Jack Spade.
As designers are wont to do, Patrick is already thinking of his next collection: "I'm considering now what my next move is, whether it's a beauty product, shoe, or intimate apparel."
>> The downtown dad loves a great gift as much as any other dude, so show off your utmost gratitude to him with these rad gift ideas: a cork wine and bar set for the connoisseur, an all-purpose messenger bag from Jack Spade, a throwback digital watch from Nixon . . . and there's more to love in the slideshow.
Whether you're aching to spend those holiday gift cards on something new, or are looking to refresh your electronic repertoire, you've come to the right place. Over the past month, I've been scouting the best gadgets and accessories to add to your collection, and I've found a few essentials that you should consider. What's hot right now? Find out right here.
I happen to think that my dad is pretty easy to shop for, but I know that a lot of you out there don't know where to begin when it comes to picking out gifts for your dads. If you fall into that category, fret not! From now until Christmas I'll be giving you the lowdown on all sorts of cool gadget gifts to stash under the tree this holiday. I got our moms covered yesterday, so let's see what I have on my short list of gifts for dads!
If I didn't have a ridiculous number of bags on my mind already, I might add this Jack Spade Waxwear Utility Bag ($425) to the list as well. Sure, it's made for men, but the luscious wax-woven (and waterproof) cotton in that beautiful green color is right up my alley.
It's perfect for dad, but totally acceptable to give to your brother, husband, uncle, or whoever you want to splurge for this Father's Day. The inner zippered compartment can hold a laptop and files for the busy guy on the go, and the two expandable outer pockets will have him finding a home for his phone, iPod, and keys. Ridiculously expensive? Sure. But totally crave-worthy? Oh yes, indeed.
