Rimowa x Moncler Go On Holiday

rimonc0.jpg It’s as if my Moncler jacket got eaten by my Rimowa suitcase… and somehow fused into a strange luxurious chimera of sorts… It doesn’t look the most functional ~ yet i can’t stop staring. And wondering what else it would transform into if we fed it some other branded goodness… my Macbook Air perhaps? Or Louboutins?

Here’s how Moncler describes it on their site: Rimowa x Moncler Go On Holiday “Moncler is travelling - with the new Moncler Rimowa costumized suitcase. The German travel case producer completely reinterpreted its classic cabin trolley ‘Classic flight’. The result is a light and functional case, essential in its design, versatile in its usage possibilities. Ultraresistant, chrome-plated aircraft aluminium exterior including a brushed Moncler logo, padded handles and a special Moncler address tag.The Moncler trolley comes with typical padded black laqué interior including a unique set of soft accessories: shoe bag, laundry bag, utility bag and a small beauty case. Roomy, handy and compact. Perfect, in its dimensions, as air travel hand luggage and with two TSA combination locks. The world of Moncler in a trolley case.”

See more images of the new suitcase on the next page. The soft accessory bags are tempting…

Division of… Holiday Measuring Card

division4.jpg On holiday cards too good not to share ~ here’s one that just came from Division of ~ “a multi-disciplinary creative agency based in NYC.” The card reads “The peace, love, and joy we wish you this holiday season is immeasurable. Here’s a ruler for everything else.” Love the laser cut acrylic ruler and the letterpressed card (pressed by Dolce Press) it aligns so perfectly with for stencil commentary!

Sun Valley, Idaho in a box…

idaho.jpg I’ve never been sent a mountain in a box before. And amazingly, the creative folks at Eleven Inc. have attempted to do just this. Sun Valley, Idaho ~ in a box! “Maybe not all of it, but damn close… The films are on a flash drive tucked into a piece of wood. Beyond that we threw in everything short of bullets and bourbon (and only left them out for legal reasons).” Fun, right? In the wooden box is a carabiner, fly, bowling scorecard, leather bound mini book, postcards, and “fire on demand” (aka matches)… all on top of the burlap sack lining. It’s adorable, and a fun selection of objects to get your wanderlust going, and popping the wooden usb key into the computer unleashes a bunch of films and stories of the world of Sun Valley. Take a peek on the next page to see the curated items in the box as well as some of the films!

UncommonGoods Pancake Plates

pancake1.jpg I’m not sure which part is more fun right now ~ the idea of a Pancake Plate (where, of course, the syrup flows down the slope into its special syrup reservoir to avoid over soaked pancakes!) or the Pirate Chef logo by John Wye, who designed the pancake plates. I could have used these when tackling these pigs in a blanket at the UncommonGoods exclusive ~ bummer that there aren’t any with the Pirate Chef logo on them ~ see more details (and other pirate chef goodness) on the next page!

Vintage Travel Posters of the Boston Library

travel1.jpg AMAZING. It’s Christmas night, and i’m happily curled up, jetlagged, listening to music and browsing hundreds of vintage travel posters… and they are incredibly inspiring. Something about the mystery and wonder and playfulness they imply can’t be replaced by a photograph. They are filled with possibilities… i just browsed through all of the Boston Public Library Print Dept’s set and you can see my favorites on the next page!

Holiday Giveaway #30: Ignoble Bags

ignoble0.jpg Happy Holidays! 2011 is flying by, and we’re finishing the year with some great coupons from our favorite stores as well as 30 giveaways from now through Christmas!

Here it is ~ our FINAL NOTCOT Holiday Giveaway of 2011 ~ #30! And this one is from super local Los Angeles based Ignoble Bags ~ who is giving away their limited edition (only 325 of each made, and now out of stock!) Alternate Future Collection duo of bags: the Stilwin Seedpod Backpack, a sleek, compact daypack, and the Wonderly Canister Rucksack, a full featured, high capacity travel bag. “IGNOBLE Alternate Future bags emphasize unique, shape-driven design, clean aesthetics, and unobtrusive, function-centric features. Each Alternate Future release is conceived as an exploration of the characteristics that define a backpack. The results are a demonstration of how adjusting a small number of variables yields seemingly infinite possibilities.”

Fun facts ~ i love that Ignoble Bags only does black bags. They are self described as “a men’s brand focused on style-conscious, thoughtfully designed black backpacks.” Founded in 2009 by two brothers in LA “with shared passions for black fabric and intelligent design” ~ and all of their bags are “made in the U.S.A., hand assembled in small runs by a military-grade soft goods production facility.” And they feel amazing, great little details (like leather zipper pulls!), perfectly placed pockets, and a ruggedly sleek look that works from crazy travel adventures to urban errand running…

For a chance to win the Alternate Future Collection from Ignoble Bags, leave a comment with how you imagine your alternate future before midnight PST on Dec 29th, 2011 and we’ll notify the winner by email!

CONGRATS to our winner Greg in Burnaby, BC, Canada!
