Swatch x Omega MoonSwatch

Mission to Mars is no longer just a Brian De Palma movie from 2000, it’s now the name of one of 11 watches in the completely unexpected MoonSwatch range. Unexpected for two reasons: Omega allowed Swatch to co-opt its most recognizable watch (the Speedmaster Professional, or Moonwatch); and the end product is… actually stellar. Each design is inspired by a celestial object – the eight planets of our solar system, the dwarf planet Pluto, the Sun or the Moon – and all cost just $260. You can’t buy them online, but they’re available now at select Swatch stores.

Firestone Walker Hopnose

What are Cryo Hops? They are the secret of this double dry hopped IPA. The brewery claims the process includes “collecting concentrated lupulin from whole-leaf hops, which contains the pure resins for bitterness and flavor oils.” The hops here are sourced from both New Zealand and the American Pacific Northwest, and the result of it all is a beer with notes of mango, passion fruit, white grape and lychee.

Todd Snyder’s items are a no-brainer for fall (see: LL Bean’s collabs), winter (see: my woolen overcoat) and spring (see: the Dylan suede jacket, which the designer cites as a summary of its aesthetic). Now, with the Montauk swim shorts, it’s finally ready to style your whole summer. It’s the brand’s first exclusive swimsuit, but in true Todd style, the elastic waist swimsuit is available in 12 different styles to suit your personal style.
