Michael Williams has a great post entitled The Greatest Brand Book Ever Made about the incredible book recently published by Parisian publisher Devambez about Goyard and their 160 years of history. Only 233 editions were made, and they each cost a whopping €6000– available by special order.
Each book is painstakingly made by hand by the finest artisans in France and comes in its own individually numbered, fully custom Goyard case.
It’s been incredible to see this brand manage their growth so meticulously.

Not content with their already lightweight racing shoes, Nike just unveiled Flyknit technology, just months before the London Olympic Games. The designers at the Beaverton, OR athletic company figured out a way to weave a complete upper while mating it with a stable and protective Lunarlon sole. Flyknit eliminates the use of glue, sewing, or cutting which means a drastic savings in weight for this one-piece silhouette. How much savings? The Racer model that marathoners the world over will be sporting weighs just 5.6 oz, which is slightly heavier than your iPhone 4S. For the rest of us, the Flyknit Trainer+ comes in at 7.7 oz. Me? The consummate Hiroshi Fujiwara fan, I’m looking at picking something up from the HTM collection. The sneakers will drop July 2012.

Maybe $3,064.82 Motorbike T-shirt will do though. Love it, great work guys.
Our friends at Cool Hunting have released a new set of touchscreen-friendly gloves. I particularly like the leather version below. Congrats!
These supple leather gloves sport a sleek design lined with a soft knit blend of cashmere, wool and nylon. Like most Freehands gloves, the leather collection features a foldable tip on the thumb and forefinger to allow the wearer free use of touchscreen devices or simply find the right key in your pocket.
