Nope. Our quest to find the coolest watches out there hasn’t yet ended. In fact, we just discovered a new Swedish brand that wereally wanted to feature on the blog this week. So without further ado, we’re telling you today about Ackurat, their sleek timepieces and their crowd-funding campaign.
So, we’re still on our quest to find the coolest watches on the market. After telling you last week about an ancestral European watchmaking maison, we decided to switch things up and tell you about a new brand called Maven, inspired by the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.
I had kind of a revelation earlier today. My daughter (who’s about to turn one!) was playing on the kitchen floor with one of my pocket squares -if you follow us on Instagram (@leclubdesdouze), you might have seen a picture of it in our stories. I’m not sure how she managed to put her hands on it, but she did. And she was happily playing with it, giggling. A part of me thought “alright, let’s put that back where you found it, it’s not a toy” but at the same time, I felt like the fact that she went on a scavenger hunt across the apartment and ended up picking this specific item to play with, deserved to be celebrated. And thus I felt like telling you about a gentleman’s accessories brand that I’m a little bit obsessed with these days, R. Culturi.
We’ve talked about watches a fair amount lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s our obsession du moment... We all have one, don’t we? We introduced a bunch of newer brands -some currently crowdfunding- but today we wanted to come back to the basics and explore the heritage of a maison rooted in history: Dreyfuss & Co.
At Le club des douze, we like brands that are not just looking to make a buck but are also looking to give something in return. That’s why we love Knots Apparel. They’re accessories designers, crafters, entrepreneurs and social activists all at once. They use their passion for menswear to help those in need. And we respect that. A lot. We also think their ties are pretty damn cool.
