These essential classics have timeless style that will never go out of fashion.
Barcelona Chair & Stool
Originally designed in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Barcelona chair is one of the most recognised objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement.

Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses
The most recognisable style in the history of sunglasses, the Wayfarer’s distinct shape is paired with the signature logo on the temples. After its initial design in 1952, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer quickly endeared itself to Hollywood filmmakers, celebrities, musicians, and artists, cementing its iconic status for years to come.
Levis 501 jeans
Since 1873, Levi’s has regularly evolved the 501 jeans to suit the needs of the modern worker. Levis Vintage Clothing reproduces each of the most historically significant 501 jeans styles from 1890 to 1978 exactly as they were when they were first introduced – from the fabric and fit to the packaging.
1947 501’s: US$25
Made by Piaggio, the Vespa (meaning wasp in Italian) scooter has been around since 1946 and since then, dozens of models have become iconic and its signature style is legendary. The GTV 300 models have vintage looks with modern technology, and the GTS Super range represents the sporting spirit of Vespa's past.
The favourite watch of pilots and aviation fans, the Breitling Navitimer line features a slide rule bezel, used for making a host of flight calculations. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Navitimer 01, Breitling has also created two limited series with blue or silver dials and a transparent sapphire crystal caseback.
Worn by royalty and celebrities, coveted and admired, and avidly collected, the Hermès scarf is a style icon. Since the first scarf made its debut in 1937, the House of Hermès has produced thousands of different designs.

Nike Dunk High AC
Launched in 1985, the Nike Dunk High AC continues a legacy as a must-have design. Back then, seven college basketball teams broke an unwritten rule and matched their Dunks to their uniforms. A riot of colour ensued, and the Nike Dunk has been a symbol of individual expression ever since.
