This Porter backpack looks like a well-crafted piece of equipment with a very nice colourway. But I cannot imagine why anyone would pay S$330 for backpack. Seriously, they should just sell Porter logos as sew-ons or iron-ons for your existing equipment at S$199.99 and get on with it.
The suppressed consumerist in me blinked at the very nicely curated selection of shoes from Clae, featuring some nice cuts and bold colourways. If anything will make me grow up deviate from my sports-brands-only footwear philosophy, a pair of Clae shoes might just be it.
No, I’m not a high fashion junkie but I do like humourous self-deprecation in almost any form and the Lanvin Fall/Winter 2011 ‘video catalogue’ is pretty funny. Plus any video with Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann is absolutely worth linking to.

If you use a Hermès Birkin bag, you must be a real douche to pay a five digit sum for a branded item of utility which was probably made in China.
If you carry a Together Bag, which has a print of the Birkin bag on all sides, you must be a real douche for the display of self-deprecating irony, laced with an infinitesimal bitterness, which you share with everyone else who wishes they own the actual thing.
Great idea and execution by Wieden+Kennedy (Tokyo). And I have to admit, the Japanese women just make it all very cute, too.
