2. LAmove Mobile Closet

This international carry-on is your complete mobile wardrobe. Just hang the open suitcase in a hotel closet and its unique shelf and compartment system keeps your wardrobe ultra-organized and accessible - perfect for jet setters! A separate garment section neatly stores suits and dresses. Everything has its place.

3. DYSON supersonic Hair Dryer

No one combines raw functionality and modern sophistication quite like Dyson with their new supersonic blow dryer. Sure, I know what you're thinking, everyone on your holiday gift list probably does have a hair dryer - but not this one. The Dyson hair dryer has intelligent technology, which helps prevent heat damage and protect hair’s natural shine. The temperature is measured 20 times a second and transmitted to a microprocessor, which intelligently prevents the heating element from reaching extreme, hair damaging temperatures. Not to mention, it's one of the chicest looking gadgets on the market this year.

This black book retrospective is 700+ pages tracing the brand's rich presence in the worlds of fashion, art, architecture, communications, and cinema. The book itself is a work of art, and will surely bring the luxury fashion house's signature style to any collection (or coffee table) without breaking the bank!
