Kit: Citroën DS

The Citroën DS automatically imputes coolness of a high order in a way a vintage Ferrari can't. You're somehow instantly scholarly, erudite and a wildman in the bedroom. Why is that? Well, the DS coveted in the same way the 1st edition of a classic novel is. The car isn't deemed exotic, sporty or sexy in any conventional manner, but it's no less desirable by virtue of its specialness. And that's what the DS has in droves. For its time, it was the future of automobiles and it drove like nothing else.

Be a stylish song reader

Beck x Warby Parker Carmichael Glasses

Music is a language everyone can appreciate, a language many of us can understand aurally -- and a language only some of us can read. Because it's most accessible to the population in its aural form -- that'd be the CDs or MP3s you purchase (okay, vinyl too, hipsters) -- artists generally (always) release their music in a format that can be heard. Beck isn't a typical artist. Case in point, his latest 20-song album, Song Reader, was, in a clever/strange/excellent twist, released unrecorded, in sheet music form.

And so a unique musical release begets another unique release. Warby Parker (they of remarkably affordable and stylish eyeglass/prescription lens combinations) has collaborated with the man himself (he of personal style that is as notable as the music he writes) to offer a line of eyewear -- dubbed the Carmichael -- to ensure those music types among us who suffer from unfortunate vision can read the songs from Song Reader's sheet music release, and to make sure music fans (well, anyone, really) can enjoy strutting around with limited-edition specs perched atop their noses.

Warby Parker x The Standard Sunglasses

The charitable and on-trend team at Warby Parker have partnered with The Standard hotel to create a limited edition pair of their Winston shades in a classic striped ale colorway. Blending 60s styling with a dose of modern confidence, they're a steal for $95, even if your days by the pool are still months away. Plus, they ship with a special orange lens cloth designed by artist Jeff Canham that we know you'll lose in a week. Like all Warby specs, purchasing this pair will also send a pair of optical glasses to someone in need. Look for them at The Standard hotels in the company’s new “Readery” kiosks (also developed in collaboration with Warby Parker) or purchase them directly online via the link below.
