If there’s one truism of today’s world it’s that Dad’s take on more declensions—or categories—than at any time in human history. All of which has made the annual art of giving dadishly—or daddyishly—difficult. So for all those struggling siblings sourcing last-minute gifts, it’s heartening to discover that one visit to K11 MUSEA’s Muse Edition, with its sophisticated array of lifestyle emporia from the likes of OKURA and Haustage to BOTTLETOP, is guaranteed to tick every paternal present box with added pop.
Muse Edition, if you didn’t yet know, set within K11 MUSEA, like the bespoke links on a double-cuff shirt, or limited-edition Yeezy’s for Adidas, combines specially curated pieces and edgy collections for the cultural and aesthetic cognoscenti as part of its “eclectible” inventory.
For example, did you know that best things come in fives? Chanel No. 5; Warhol’s five portraits of Marilyn Monroe; and the Jony Ive-designed, Steve Jobs-curated iMac computers of the late 90s, which Jobs told Ive to model on Warhol’s Marilyn series. And so Haustage sells a set of five coloured glasses from Sugahara (SGHR), all hand-made of course, espousing the virtues of heritage, arts, upcycling and sustainability. Now there’s reason to crack, crush and pulverize some ice with good cheer. These covetable totems are perfect for Dad’s tasteful liquefaction.
They may be fathers but where there’s boys there’s toys, of course. Japanese brand OKURA (meaning “treasure trove”) handpicks clothing and collectibles from across Japan. Surely Dad would embrace his inner child and his new-found cosmic buddy via OKURA’s Astronaut 3D Puzzle—both an eye-catching display piece and a fun game. Regaled in sleek, gunmetal gray, the puzzle bespeaks a sense of adventure, and acts as reminder to always dream big—Dad will be SpaceXing to the International Space Station by memorable day’s end.
And last but by no means least, for eco-Dads who love the environment just as much as their mini-mes, seek out Bottletop’s sustainable 12-inch laptop sleeve and document holder, created for the innovative British brand by designer Narciso Rodriguez. This svelte and stylish “workware” wonder features Bottletop’s signature Mistura hand braiding detail on one side—an intricate weave of upcycled metal with sumptuous Amazon Zero Deforestation leather.
So there you have it. Rock Dad’s day with these edgy accessories and remind him why he’ll always be your top of the pops.
