Holiday Wish List: Day 10

WGSN Staffer: Simon Charles, Media Production Assistant


1.Oculus Rift

Being a guy obsessed with new toys and working in the video production industry, I am always interested and clued into the new tech coming to the market. From stereo to surround sound, from 2D to 3D. Now we have Virtual Reality and the Oculus Rift is high on the tech podium in this WGSN department.


The technology is still in the early stages, but I’d love to get my hands on one of these and see what the bad boy can do 🙂

Teddy Fleece Jacket

I’m a little bit late to the party when it comes to a winter coat, I’ve been putting off the search for a good one because the stores are so busy right now. However, scrolling through the WGSN reports to see what trends are influencing menswear right now, I came across this Teddy Fleece Jacket, it’s from Carven and I can order it online. Plus, there’s nothing better than looking fly while you keep warm.

Ipad Pro


I’ve always been an Apple fan, and with the new and improved tablet that can also be used as a laptop it’s a no brainer, great for work and leisure. There’s always something to do and its flawless ease of use gets five stars from me. I love the convenience factor, and the fact that there is always  ‘an app for that’.
