    Inspired by the old world utilitarian ideal of making something that is “built to last,” Izola and Aesthetic Movement have curated a collection of whimsical objects with a masculine sense of antiquity.

    Made with great care and attention to detail, this series of functional every day staples is designed to be the perfect gifts for men. The products include flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo toothbrushes, handkerchiefs, shoe brushes, shower rings, ceramics and shower curtains.


    The Motley x JOYA | East Rider Candle

    My previous post regarding candles wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention the new Easy Rider candle, a Collaboration between The Motley and JOYA.

    The scent, developed by JOYA and hand poured at their Brooklyn studio, was inspired by a trip The Motley took up the California coast, with notes of Siam Citron, Orange Flower, Saddle Leather, Birch Tar and Woodsmoke. The artwork was designed by Caleb Owen Everitt, an Austin based Designer/Art Director with clients ranging from J.Crew to Deus Ex Machina.

    A true coast-to-coast collaboration…and a perfect stocking stuffer.
