Mick: I found these vintage Jordan 1’s on vacation in Bangkok at one of the most amazing flea markets I’ve ever been to. The cool thing is… I was told they were reissues from the 90s – which is cool nonetheless – but turns out they are the original ones from the 80s. First edition!
Mick: Transformers lunchbox
Mick: My wife got me this vintage lunchbox for Christmas many years ago. Maybe my favorite gift I’ve ever received. I never had it as a kid – and I was, and still am, a mega Transformers fan. My cat is named Grimlock!
Mick: 1978 Rolex Submariner
Mick: I’m big into watches and had been looking for something special from my birthday year. We were on holiday in Geneva and I came across this one. The black bezel has faded to a uniform and unique grey. I was instantly in love with it.
Mick: Spike Lee Street Sign
Mick: Such a cool gift. I’ve deejayed a lot of parties for the legendary Spike Lee – and this is such a historical memento. They renamed a Brooklyn block after his iconic movie – I got to DJ at the renaming – and ended up coming home with this. And had Spike sign it!
Mick: Sonos Bluenote Limited Edition
Mick: I love Sonos. It changed how we consume music in our house. They sent us this super limited pair of blue speakers done in collaboration with Blue Note Records. When we realized our son’s nursery was going to be blue… He inherited them (before he was even born!). The kid is spoiled and now has the best music taste!Buy Now$550.00
Mick: Master & Dynamic headphones
Mick: The best headphones out, to me. Amazing materials and craftsmanship. Quality. Fantastic sound. Looks great when I’m deejaying – whether I’m in a tee or a tux. Just a big fan of their brand!Buy Now$399.00
Mick: Marvel by Taschen
Mick: I love comics. It’s my get away from reality. A place I can to recharge and let my mind regenerate creativity. I’ve been a Marvel fan my entire life. When Taschen did this oversized coffee table book of all classic Marvel art, my marital goal of leaving comics out permanently in our living room without annoying Rana was realized!
Rana: Alexander Girard Poster
Rana: This may conceivably be my favorite gift from Mick to date. In college I had this print and was so upset when I lost it in a move. I’m such a fan of Girard, but I couldn’t afford anything of his at the time. Fast forward to a casual walk in Brooklyn- only to stumble upon the original. I completely had a moment. This poster represents that time in every 20 something’s life when they finally find themselves on their own. After my freak out, I made it easy for Mick to find the perfect anniversary gift.
Rana: Sunnies wall
Rana: Being a New Yorker for almost 10 years has taught me how to come up with some creative ways to best optimize our space. I am proud to say the sunnies wall is an example of that.
Rana: Prince comic book
Rana: After many failed attempts, Mick finally found a comic that I could get into! I’m a huge lover of any and everything Prince. The day he passed Mick immediately went online and found this to cheer me up a bit. It’s so cool, but not cool enough to get me into comics.
Rana: Framed Hermes Scarf
Rana: One of my first jobs in luxury retail was a scarf specialist at Hermes Paris. I was completely awe-struck by the Hermes client. They came up with some pretty inventive ways to repurpose the scarves. I had a client who lined all his suits with scarves. Another who made foot stools and framed all of them. I thought…one day. And I did!Buy Now$395.00
Rana: WIK 1508 Praying Hands Candle
Rana: As a person who lights candles without having an occasion to do so, I can’t bring myself to burn this one. It’s too special. Every day it’s a reminder to be grateful and thank God for all the blessings and endless favor.Buy Now$165.00
Rana: His thing is comics… mine is flea market finds! Whenever we travel anywhere, I try to find local flea markets or vintage shops. Not consignment shops. There is a difference. I found this beauty in Louisiana.
Rana: This is my favorite kids brand right now because the clothes hold on to that childlike innocence. I get a bit annoyed when I see children dressed like over stylized adults. It’s a trend that I wish would go away.
