What: Wright01 Hat
Where: Satya Twena
When: Get ’em while they’re hot!
GG Certified: Fascinators, or creative head wear, have been popping up everywhere since the Royal Wedding. While Philip Treacy may be the most known maker of fascinator hats, Satya Twena designs beautiful head gear that is a bit more wearable. Check out the Wright01 Hat, and others by Satya.

Who: Zaha Hadid Architects
Where: Read about it on Zaha Hadid’s site.
When: We’d hope sooner, than later.
GG Certified: Zaha Hadid Architects build and design more than just building structures. “The Z-CAR [by Zaha Hadid] is a two-seater city car with a three-wheel base.” It uses Hydrogen for energy, the inclination of this passenger pod is speed adjusted, it requires less parking-space because of its shortened wheelbase, and the body consists of lightweight carbon-fibre composite with a large asymmetric door hatch giving the passengers a panoramic vision. We’ve never seen a cooler concept car.
