the latest england kit will be made by nike, ending the team’s long running association with umbro, which has been going since 1954. the design is nice and simple, and as with all of nike’s current football kits is made from recycled polyester. the shirt and shorts of each kit is made with up to 13 recycled plastic bottles.
the infobar a02 is naoto fukasawa’s second handset design for au. the design is very minimal, devoid of any distracting details that would distract from the software. the user interface, iida 2.0, is a version of android that allows users to customise their home screen with their favourite content, using various sized tiles similar to windows 8.
swoop bags are designed for easy storage of toys. this is what i needed when i was younger! a simple drawstring sack keeps all your lego/playmobil/duplo etc stored tidily away, but opens up so you can easily access pieces that might otherwise fall to the bottom in a rigid box. available in two sizes, priced at $48 and $24 in a nice selection of colours direct from swoop bags.
i like these vegetable trays designed by pierre casenove. the simple trays are made from solid ash and they are stackable, perfect for storing utensils or vegetables. manufactured by pic vert et cie, they are available in five different colours from scp for £26.50 each.
the plume is a minimal mudguard currently seeking funding on kickstarter. using spring steel just like a slap-on wristband, the plume easily switches between a rigid mudguard and coiling away beneath the saddle. it’s a nice solution to solve the need for a functioning mudguard that can also be easily folded away and hidden, but stay securely attached to your bike.

c6 are a british company making hard-wearing, long-lasting bags to carry all you digital products. they have lots of cases for laptops, tablets and smartphones, but my favourites are their backpacks and tote bags. the designs are minimal but very functional, with padded compartments that keep you things safe but don’t make the bag look too bulky. head over to their site to see the full collection.
The zipped main section of each bag has a covering flap which wraps over and fastens with push clips for added security. This flap creates a drop pocket section on the back panel which is secure but easily accessed. An organizer compartment, with individual sections for everyday necessities, is accessed on the front panel of the bag.
We use the highest quality materials for our bags. The main body fabric is a double layered bonded cotton canvas which is both hardwearing and showerproof, while the lining material is lightweight but strong.
