Lookout & Wonderland
Niki Livingston created Lookout & Wonderland, a fiber art project, providing a nesting place for artistic collaboration the making of hand-crafted goods. Intended as a resist and natural dye research project with a focus on the sociological aspects of color, alchemy and surface design, the resulting multi-use textiles allow the viewer to become an active participant in the form and function of the artwork.
For this edition, in exclusive collaboration with Assembly of Objects, Niki has designed and hand-dyed a range of silk twill scarves measuring 17 inches square. A most versatile size, lending themselves to an infinite number of uses both decoratively and sartorially. Due to their handmade nature each scarf is unique. And each is impossibly beautiful.
P.F. Candle Co.
A small batch candle company run by husband and wife team Kristen Humphrey and Thomas Neuberger, all P.F. Candle Co. candles are made using domestically grown soy wax, cotton core wicks, fine fragrance oils and apothecary-inspired packaging. Each candle is hand poured in their Los Angeles studio.
Inspired by the Mojave desert, this fragrance captures so much of what we love about the California desert: a base of cedar wood and white musk, with notes of dry desert air, chaparral, creosote and desert sage. A heart of golden poppy and white lavender is revealed on the burn. Infused with essential oils of rose, sandalwood, vetiver and sage.
GOLDA by Studio Cue LA
Studio Cue LA was envisioned by Keiko Matsuo, a Japanese holistic qi therapist for over thirty years. Together with Tsugu Wada, they have created a peaceful daytime retreat in Topanga Canyon, California, with GOLDA as their own line of handmade, personal products.
A conifer tree from Aomori, Japan, Hiba is revered for its unique antimicrobial, germicidal, insect repellant and deodorant qualities. Hinokitiol, found only in the oil derived from 300 year old trees, features in this spherical soap, as well as jojoba, avocado and lemongrass, coconut, palm and olive oils. This tactile soap has a unique citrusy, cedar-like fragrance that is purifying, uplifting and stimulating. And feels simply wonderful in the hand.
Switzerland is justly famous for its obsession with quality and precision. Caran d'Ache maintains this reputation with their high-quality writing instruments, which they have produced for 100 years.
The 849 Original is a genuinely cult object, both smart and informal, with its aluminum body distinguished by its hexagonal shape: six facets that make it an iconic ballpoint. Featuring the famous giant medium-blue Goliath cartridge, alongside a stainless steel tip and tungsten carbide ball, this combination guarantees a clean line without blots for 8000 meters. This Swiss made classic, delightfully light to hold, is ensconced in a special edition presentation tin.
Crushed shea butter handcreme by Tokyomilk Dark
Handcrafted by Margot Elena in Denver, Colorado, this lush hand creme in standout packaging is both luminous and fresh.
Here is a crisp and invigorating fragrance with wild grasses and blossoming herbs - unexpected essences crushed and distilled for a decidedly uncommon sensory experience. Top notes of wild grass, jasmine and lime; middle notes of cardamom and coriander; bottom notes of earth, moss and ginger, all set in a sensuous balm of shea butter and sweet almond oils. Each dramatically black tube is presented in a tailored keepsake bag.
