The break

The break

I know it’s been awfully quite on the blog the last few months. I’m sorry for that but I’ve been really busy (with some wonderful and fun things) and had to down prioritize Below The Clouds. That doesn’t mean that I’m closing the blog, it just means that I’m extending my break until after the holidays. See you in 2012!

The store has a great selection of fashionable menswear for the man who doesn’t mind paying for quality and classic and trendy design. Beside nice clothes, Goods sports a well though through identity that presents the brands they work with in a charming way, with unique coat of arms designed by Anders Arhøj. The designs are how Goods see the brands and a really interesting take on presenting what and who you sell. More images after the jump.

Kickstand Brooklyn

Kickstand Brooklyn

Cold brewed coffee isn’t that big in Sweden yet, but from what I understand it’s pretty big in the United States of America. Kickstand Brooklyn is one of the companies doing cold brewed coffee and they have packaged it nicely in dark glass bottles. Besides doing bottled coffee Kickstand Brooklyn also runs a cool coffee stand that they pull all over New York with their bikes. They’ve designed everything themselves and are currently working on a updated coffee stand. I wonder if this years Malmöfestivalen will see any bike “powered” coffee stands?

Toys from Acne

Toys from Acne

Acne is probably most know for their jeans but to me they are Netbaby World and cool websites from when the Internet was young. Unfortunately, Netbaby World is nowadays nothing more than a burial site of times past but Acne is still going strong, creating cool and interesting products. Most recent Acne JR and their wonderful toys that easily could double as interior design pieces. Pics after the jump of course.
