Following a seminal 2015 partnership, high-design home destination CB2 returns with a new 2021 collection with Lenny Kravitz’s Kravitz Design. 

The extensive collection weaves together design inspired by African textiles, Parisian vibes, and, of course, a rock n’ roll edge. Sprawling into home areas, the assortment oozes the rock star’s seductive bohemian energy and features CB2’s quintessential materials like rich woods, modern frames, and metals mixed with bold prints and customizable upholstery. 

“Our first collaboration with Kravitz Design was really a turning point,” CB2 president Ryan Turf said in a press release. “Together we’ve found a new openness to take more risks in pattern, materials, and scale while still holding true to our collective vision of making great design.” 

This unapologetically global collection includes livable luxury and quality craftsmanship in its lighting, metals, and fabric patterns. Mixing natural materials on lamp shades with reactive glazes, for example, and adding an artisanal and handcrafted touch to rattan lighting pieces that exude scale and warmth. 

The partnership also combines fresh metal use, which can be found on an aluminum dining table with bronze finish and in polished nickel accents across bedroom and dining pieces. 

In the living room, hip corduroy upholstery fabric brings texture to the collection, pairing with a plywood base on the Vaneri Black Corduroy Chair. All Kravitz Design upholstery prints in the assortment, in fact, allow for customization. 

“The new collection is based on a mélange of places, things, and people that I have encountered through my travels,” Kravitz said in a statement. “This new assortment reflects that elevated aesthetic, focusing on quality, craftsmanship, and high-design.”

The CB2 x Kravitz Design collection includes more than 70 new products across the home. In the office, the Paseo Carved Wood Credenza is manufactured with FSC-certified white oak that’s stained with carbon black, white and dark walnut. 

And in the bedroom, the Sojourn Printed Ogo Bed is where polished nickel and geometric fabrics meet. This aligns well atop the Ramble Black and Natural Rug, made of 100% jute (at 16-18 knots per sq. inch) with a bold tan and black pattern influenced by African Kuba Cloth. 

“Home should be a place where you feel like yourself and your spirit is comfortable,” Kravitz said. 

The collection is available now exclusively at Products range in price from $8 to $2,399.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

If you’re a fan of diving and American special forces units, then it’s time to celebrate. Panerai has released its latest range of Navy SEALs dive watches, and they look good. Four new timepieces are available, though that availability is limited with three of the watches and extremely scarce with the fourth. The whole thing is part of a collaboration that started in 2022 and adds to the already wide range of luxury Panerai watches.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach. If you’re one of the 50 people who will ultimately spend $53,200 on the 47mm Submersible Chrono PAM01402, you’ll get more than just the watch. The luxury timepiece comes with a matching travel pouch, an NFT, a collection of “artwork,” and the chance to experience “Navy SEALs Training.”
