Check out this real ‘interesting’ LED Faceless Watch

I was looking for a luxury watch for my bf and came across this really interesting LED watch designed by Hironao Tsuboi. The ‘interesting’ thing about this LED watch is that it is faceless.

Though it may seem like any ordinary silver segmented bracelet but you won’t find it difficult to check time on it as it has LED powered hour and minute digits which light up across some segments of the silver bracelet.

Measuring W-97 x D-81 x H-60, this LED Faceless Watch is available in Black, Silver and Ultra Marine. As far as the price is concerned I am still trying to figure out!!

If you are shopping for Easter Egg at Selfridges then opt for their special Easter Egg which will make you feel as if you are on cloud nine and I will tell you the reason. These chocolate Easter Eggs come studded with gold coin which can be termed as a sturdy investment in these bad times.

Nike AF1 by Maharam: The complex textile comfort

This shoe may be engineered in China but mind you it doesn’t come cheap. I am talking about the Nike Sportwear 1 World AF1 by Maharam Limited Edition which is created from Layers, a textile which has been developed by Maharam Design Studio and Hella Jongerius. Layers has been woven in Italy and was sent to Germany for embroidery work.

You must understand that Nike Air Force 1 has evolved with the help of Mahram. Layers is not a simple piece of textile rather it is created from 100% wool felt utilizing sophisticated embroidery equipment for creating patterning which is engineered further to meet the standards of AF1. It retails for $250.I must say comfort certainly comes at a price!!
