Robots, Cubelets

At the Dandy and Wit research lab, we've been exploring modular robotics and the practical integration of automated workerbots in modern labor force. Until we've got a working prototype, we can recommend Cubelets.




Stanley & Sons

Sure, the hand crafted, bespoke everything craze is in full effect, nowhere more prominently than in Brooklyn, NYC, but, it still makes for some dope goods.

APC iPAD Case

Yes, I know, it appears that lately I've just been posting APC press releases. Alas, I'm busy and a sucker for some cool APC gear.

It's been far to long since we visited an exceptional art show, filled with an uber-legit crowd, lined up to see a fantastic exhibition. The Thursday opening of Liz Cohen's Trabantimino at Salon 94 was just that, exceptional. (and a very dope location and gallery to boot). Thanks for the invite Adam.

Trabantimino is a hybridized car and kinetic sculpture that combines a former East German Trabant with a Chevrolet El Camino.

Topsy Design

From an originality perspective, if you can't go bespoke, perhaps the next best thing is a well preserved vintage number. (Though we have an incredibly low tolerance from trolling through racks of motley cast-offs). The solution comes from two transplanted New Yorkers with their Los Angeles based online collection of gorgeous finds at Topsy Design.com

Sacred Sands from TOPSY on Vimeo.


It comes as no surprise that couple and co-curators, Jared Frank and Samantha Jacober come from a background in film, behind and in front of the camera respectively.  Their collection looks like the greatest hits of a stylists-closet-meets-the-set-decorator's-trailer.

The Topsy Design collection is displayed in an elegant and stripped down blog format, so grab their RSS feed and plug it into your favorite reader to stay up-to-date on their most recent finds.

Over at the Dandy and Wit HQ we've been eyeing this Walrus Hide Bag.

When we must shop at big box stores, Target is the clear and outstanding choice. They have not forsaken style for cost. Their latest designer colaboration brings one of our favorite brands from the UK into the mix, Liberty of London. Liberty as been collaborating with artists and designers since 1875 to create some of the best print designs in the world, many of which find their way into our closet time and again.

This spring Liberty brings its colorful palette to Target stores in America with men's, women's and home fashions.

Cloth of the Sun

Now that the holidays are over and you're banishing the tasty decadence of the season, we recommend heading back into your own kitchen.  These dish towels will brighten up any rack or oven.  (Maybe it's time for a little gift to yourself).

Les Toiles du Soleil has been making this beautiful cloth for 150 years from the French Catalonian town of Saint Laurent de Cerdans. Although it has switched hands and families a few times over the last century, the latest incarnation brings us the most fantastic colors around. Think of a rough hewn Paul Smith stripe in durable thick cotton weave.
