Krona o Stjärna Co-Founder Howard Duffy has been selected as Brand Ambassador for The Cassette Company, a forward-looking Idaho-based lifestyle eyewear company.  We will be partnering to promote the brand and its great products through sales announcements, social media and events we will be sharing with our audience in the weeks and months to come.

About the Cassette Company

The Cassette Company began in 2011 surrounded in the many outdoor arenas available in Idaho.  The idea was created within a local snowboard and skate shop, where we saw a serious need for an optics company that was priced reasonably compared to the un-obtainable pricing of other brands out there, yet still had the features and styling of the more expensive product the shop sold. 

Using the best materials is a way to produce the finest eyewear. But keeping true to the beliefs of why Cassette was founded is the most important piece of the puzzle. We believe that the eyewear that protects your eyes shouldn’t cost you more than the equipment your using. It should cost you an amount that is fair. This is the story of why we started, and this is the story we will remain true to.

Monocle’s editor in chief Tyler Brûlé sits down with Tag Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver to discuss adapting to an ever-changing market, collaborating (and competing) and how the “connected watch” will foster the next generation of luxury-watch buyers.  Jean-Claude Biver is in our opinion (shadowing Tyler's) one of the most intuitive characters in the luxury watch sector, and for that matter, the luxury brand sector as a whole.  Head over to Monocle and take a listen.

Polestar Pole Jacket

"Motorsport Pole Jacket", in blue and gold "blågult", resplendent in Polestar details, inspired by the design of the Volvo Polestar Racing's winning cars in the STCC and V8 Supercars. The stylish and slim-fit down jacket has elastic panels on the front and the back.  In addition to the front zip, there is a zipped chest pocket and an inside pocket for maximum versatility. With 90% goose down and 10% feathers, the jacket's 800-gram padding keeps you warm in the coldest weather.  The jacket is smartly decorated with blue Polestar- and A-one - logos.

Volvo Polestar Racing driver Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Bernadotte & Kylberg, and A-One collaborated on the jacket's design.
