And now for something slightly macabre: the Ghost Urn by Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko is a prototype for a cremation urn which is designed to demystify death by making it less frightening and more friendly.

Going live in selected stores and online today is this lively, not too precocious, collaboration between GapKids, Kate Spade New York and Jack Spade.

Designed with the holidays in mind, the collection includes camouflage jackets, straight-leg jeans and high-top sneakers for the boys.  The girls' clothing is slightly more traditional than the boys', featuring shirts, trousers and party dresses adorned with two- and three-dimensional bows, satin slippers and adorable satchels.  The limited edition collection also has accessories such as phone, tablet and pencil cases, wooly scarves and pompon hats and sunglasses.

Danish furniture brand Republic of Fritz Hansen have revived the 1958 Drop chair that was originally designed by Modernist architect Arne Jacobsen.  Jacobsen was a master of design who saw furniture design as a complementary part of a comprehensive spatial and architectural project.  The chair was one of his designs for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and has an organic feel and ergonomic form which wraps the sitter in its embrace. The chair is sturdy and durable as required in a hotel but functional and comfortable too.  A perfect combination.

Designed to store all sorts of objects, the Balka Console is a sleek and modern piece of furniture that is sure to add colour to any home.  With a top made of oak and a yellow spoon-shaped drawer, the desk designed by Gregoire de Lafforest has a tray which is intended to be a repository for pocket-sized essentials like sets of keys, buttons or batteries.  The top of this piece is supported on plastic legs.

The adidas Originals collection by Mary Katrantzou will be available in store at select retailers and online on November 15.

adidas Originals have relaunched the ZX Flux customisation programme which allows you to print any high-resolution photograph on its shoe.  Using an app, your chosen image is uploaded, scaled and placed on the shoe template and the shoe is produced.  Pictured above, Highsnobiety’s ‘raindrops on airplane window’ which was made in collaboration with photographer Peter Williams.
The Frida Stool and Side Table by Zanocchi & Starke are the first two pieces in this series of customisable furniture which are designed to perfectly fit into any space. The pieces are characterised by a simple mounting system that provides both an aesthetically pleasing detail on the top of the item and enables the Frida to be easily dis- and re-assembled with the use of a single butterfly screw.   The fact that Frida can be taken apart so easily makes it extremely versatile and minimises the cost of storage and transportation.

Filed under 'why didn't they think go this before' comes these rubberised, fleece-lined Chuck Taylors from Converse which prove you don't have to sacrifice your style for comfort this Winter.

One of the more functional (yet still stylish) bags we have come across is this three-way bag from Melbourne-based State of Folly which transforms from a clutch to a shoulder bag to a backpack simply by repositioning its adjustable and detachable strap. Made from high-quality, leather with nickel hardware, the interior of the bag has multiple pockets to keep its contents organised 

Halo is a small stool manufactured from a single piece of flat plywood using a programmable router by Australian designer Bradley Fraser who has previously worked for Japanese architectural firm SANAA, Sejima and Nishizawa And Associates.

The objective of this design was to make an inexpensive durable stool that could be produced locally. As the top of the seat is derived from the middle of the  support, the Halo stool minimises waste and optimises the use of material.  The stool is easy to assemble with a standard screw which facilitates its easy transportation and storage.

Paul Smith has collaborated with Derek Welsh Studio to create these beautifully modern, limited edition dominoes.  The playing pieces are handcrafted in walnut and laminate using Smith's signature navy and pink colour scheme.  Each set is comes in a drawstring bag inside of an oblique box.
