My best buys

Something old, something new and something borrowed...

Ray Ban Wayfarer turtle shells: I like them because they’re classics. I got them online for about Dhs250.
My moleskine Pac Man special edition:
a little bit of nostalgia is healthy, plus I use them all the time. They were Dhs150 on amazon.com.
Tough leather bag: my friend found it in a vintage store (I borrowed it and don’t plan to give it back anytime soon).
Visvim FBT folk hybrid sneakers: from Hong Kong for Dhs1800. They are super-comfortable and not many people have them. I can really appreciate the craftsmanship.
Jordan III collection: including a pair that won’t be released until late November. I’m a big sneaker fanatic and the threes are the pair that got me hooked. They have a lot of history behind them. They each cost me Dhs1200 and I got the first pair from Mila.
TACS Lens watch: super-funky new Japanese brand. I like the clean look, the face looks like a camera lens without looking cheesy. I got it from the Wrist store in Dubai Mall for Dhs725.
TMA AIAIAI headphones: a sleek, clean design and the sound quality is unreal (brings out the product designer geek in me. Got mine online, but they are available at the wrist store for about Dhs900.
Custom destroyer jacket collaboration: I did for my Wolf and Sparrow brand with Nike for the soledxb event. It’s a one of a kind. I like it because it’s my brand collaboration and I’m a big fan of varsity-style jackets.
Nooka x LTD collaboration watch: it’s a limited edition watch. I like the camo print it’s in right now, got it for Dhs1200 from the Wrist store.
