This Racket Is The Real Deal
Wilson Sporting Goods

Wilson has released the first racket from their Wlabs program, which develops designs based on player feedback. The Project Shift racket (which comes in a 99/300 and a 99/315, for $269) was crafted to provide players with enhanced control of spin and power. Wilson has achieved this goal through a patent-pending frame design that allows for a unique bending profile, built to be stable but laterally flexible, with minimal torsional movement. The Shift string pattern further contributes to its balance and control, and it has a sleek modern design that you’ll be happy to be seen swinging.


Don’t Be Afraid of Labels This Valentines Day

Stockholm-based perfumery Byredo released an “Unnamed” perfume in 2016 to celebrate their 10-year anniversary and allow their loyal customers to assign their own meaning to their personal scent. This year for Valentine's Day Byredo is re-releasing the Unnamed perfume, with a blank label for you (or your partner) to fill out as they see fit with the included letter kit. The perfume itself has notes of balsam, moss, pink pepper and violet, giving it a light, woody, scent. At $290 for 100ml, this isn’t just any perfume, but it’s the perfect gift for your one-of-a-kind partner to find their signature scent.

The Polo Perpetual Calendar model has a 42-hour power reserve, a 42mm case and is 8.65mm thick. Each watch includes an interchangeable green rubber strap. For $58,500 (not including tax), this is a showstopper for any collector.
