6 Tastemakers' Fall Splurges: Vintage Rolex, Hedi Slimane Moto Pants, Leather Lounge Chair, and More

We asked these forward-looking fashion, design, art, and music industry experts what they want most. Are their picks practical? Not always. Covetable? Most definitely.


Matt Breen, Co-owner of New York City menswear store Carson Street Clothiers
What He Wants: 1968 "Pepsi" Vintage Rolex GMT-Master With Nato Strap
"It's called the Pepsi face because it has a red-and-blue bezel. I want to track one down and wear it with a colorful Nato strap. A vintage watch shows you have an appreciation for history and quality, and I'd tell anyone it's worth saving up and getting this one thing that will last you a lifetime."

Theo Richardson, Co-owner of Brooklyn-based lighting and furniture-design company Rich Brilliant Willing
What He Wants: Maarten Van Severen Leather Lounge Chair 04
"I like this chair for a lot of reasons. If you look at the use of line from the side, you can just see someone reclining in this chair. The fact that it's covered in leather—the warmth of that material is very appealing. This would definitely work well next to a bookshelf—the armrest is perfect for reading, even with a laptop or a tablet."

Miguel, Singer, songwriter, producer, and 2013 Grammy winner
What He Wants: Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane Moto Pants
"Definitely a couple pairs of these leather motorcycle pants, because they make a statement and they're warm, impervious, and, overall, versatile."

Sean Sullivan, Founder of the archival style-photography site The Impossible Cool
What He Wants: B'sbee Ireland Striped Sweater,
"I've picked up a few pieces at New High (M)art in L.A. by B'Sbee and love them all. The chunky cable sweater they do will be perfect when the weather gets colder, and you won't need a new mortgage to grab more than one."

Jenne Lombardo, Founder of Made Fashion Week and brand consultants The Terminal Presents
What She Wants: Bronze Lucite Backgammon Set
"I have recently rekindled my love of chess and backgammon. This would look great in my living room but is also fun to play. A dreamy fall afternoon for me would be to open a great bottle of wine and school my boyfriend in a friendly game."

Kim Jones, Men's creative director at Louis Vuitton who commissioned British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman for the fall/winter 2013 collection
What He Wants: The Chapman Brothers Pajamas
"If this winter is as bad as the last, I want to spend a lot of time in bed!"
