A tribute to Jopling
Pow! Ouch. The last person you want to meet in a darkened alley? That would be Jopling, Dmitri’s henchman. Armed with skull-shaped brass knuckles, he is likely to leave an impression not to be forgotten. That is, if you survive. Merciless and cold, the only thing that really gets this cruel man’s blood going is a good chase—on his motorcycle, on skis, or even through an art museum. Poor Kovacs. Get moving and get lost with this collection.
A soft friend to cuddle with. A perfect party dress. Even a rattle to shake in the crib. If it brings joy to your bundle of joy, it should only be the very best. For baby, this means keeping things nice and natural: lots of wood and cotton, less plastic and polyester. Toys that mom and dad—or even grandma and grandpa—might have enjoyed in their own infant years. So set the tone for your favorite tot with these quality baby goods.
Ribbons flutter and tutus rustle. Ballerinas-in-training line the barre, carefully perfecting each position. Making each gesture, just so. And wearing ballet basics, which have been unchanged for decades. Soft shoes and simple leotards for maximum movement. Gently colored, subtly shaped. All in preparation for one day taking the stage with one of America’s most prestigious ballet companies. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet with this collection of ballerina-inspired beauty.
Upside-down. Mouth full of water. The world is a confusion of ocean, and it’s hard to know which way is sky or shore. For a brief, beautiful moment, you were the pipeline’s master, riding high, until your fall—into the sea’s spin cycle, like a sneaker in the washing machine. But this is why you’re here. In the ocean. To get back up, and get back out there. You’re the reason they hone great boards. Build better board shorts. Chase bigger surf. And with this collection of best-in-class surfwear, those triumphs will look as good as they feel.
Mullets. Slouch socks. Awful-looking pants patterned after parachutes. Those ’80s staples are best left locked in a time capsule. But don’t turn your back on the decade entirely, or you’ll miss the treasures. Like statement T’s—made popular by 1985 classic Teen Wolf. Or logo sweatshirts from hip-hop “fashion godfather” Dapper Dan. Keep it choice with a collection of ’80s gear, like worn-in shirts, acid wash and original Ray-bans that will make anyone look…well, rad.
Gasps and pleased laughter. Your guests have just entered the dining room, pre-dinner drinks in hand. They take in your artfully arranged table for the first time. Lit only by candles, the silverware glimmers and the centerpieces glow. Linen napkins, delicate glassware, all meticulously set. It looks like you went to far too much trouble. But really, all it took was selecting the perfect pieces, creating the right ambiance. Besides, the finest food—and the best company—deserves a fitting platform. Here’s a collection that will set the stage for many great dinners to come.
The smoke is thick, the air heavy, the crowd electrified. Like a shaft of fresh, clear light, Miles Davis scorches tradition with his groundbreaking cool jazz. His album Birth of the Cool steered clear of the brassy call-and-response of the big band sound, as Davis strove to make the instruments sound connected, “like human voices singing.” The effect is harmonious and mesmerizing, a slow, groovy romp. Dig the modern jazz masterpiece, and others from the sprawling Davis canon, in this collection.
