Sometimes the details you think about the least - are the ones that mean the most. For instance, you kn ow what you are packing in your bag for your weekend trip - but what about what you are putting all that stuff IN? People see that just as much as they see what clothes you are bringing. Just as important. Enter - WANT Les Essentials de la Vie.
Want started as an agency that helped introduce brands at the cusp like Acne, Nudie Jeans, Filippa K and Maison Kitsuné to the North American market. Then witht he help of the creative director of J. Crew, went from a few novelty iPhone cases to full scale luxury luggage and accessories brand WANT Les Essentials de la Vie.
I will spare you the rest of the long winded details of the up-and-pretty-much-here French label and advise you that there is currently an extremely legit pop-up shop taking place in Hollywood, CA at The Standard Hotel and if you want to get your mits on this very rare merchandise I suggest you make moves down there as it is only in existence until the end of the month. If you miss it you can still check out all of the wares, here.
Per usual F&M was invited to come out and peep the offerings, so you can see what is in store after the jump. Enjoy.

This is one of the favorite pieces in our collection. We came across this at one of the local thrift stores and we HAD to cop. We love this joint because it's lightweight enough to wear in the Spring and Summer nights and not pass out.
Varsity jackets are one of those pieces that ever vintage lover needs in his collection, and this one is in pristine condition with solid construction by the now defunct, made right here in the U.S.A., Butwin clothing company. Lucky for you, it is still available it right here in our shop.
