Off the Cuff: Galvin Loimu

Loimu, translated from Finnish, means blaze. And I can hardly think of a better name for this collection. Microbrands, right on up through Rolex, have been very creative with their colourways in the past year. However, the spectrum on offer from Galvin is one of the best I've ever seen. There isn't dud among them. Even the Artic Black positively glows. And their names...Frost, Tundra, Glacier...such an insignificant detail, really, but so much a part of the story Galvin is hoping to create with this line.

Off the Cuff: Bremoir Lexington

nd placed its foot down on Lexington Avenue in New York. The Chrysler Building represents the height (pun intended) of what has become known as streamline moderne--a form of Art Deco characterized by bold curvaceous forms, aerodynamic lines, and sleek reflective materials. The Bremoir Lexington is a love song to this iconic monolith and to the design heritage which gave birth to it.
