Borre Akkersdijk is a man with an agenda. Being one of the pioneers in the wearable tech trend and heading his own textile development studio byBorre, Akkersdijk’s work takes him across the world from developing novel ways of integrating tech into textiles from his home base in Amsterdam, to premiering the BB.Suit – a 3D-knitted onesie that doubles as a WiFi hotspot and music library – at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, and introducing the air-cleaning qualities of its improved prototype at Beijing Design Week. As such, the Dutch innovator’s Essentials reflect his jet-setting lifestyle, with his iPhone, iPad and external battery ensuring constant connectivity as he leaves the scent of Monocle’s Scent One Hinoki fragrance in his wake. Additionally, a GYAKUSOU vest, byBorre beanie and Nike Flyknit Racers prioritize comfort while maintaining a put-together look. A veritable rainbow of marker pens remain on hand at all times to jot down notes or maybe a sketch or two, come inspiration. Read our Essentials for byBorre’s BB.Suit here, and don’t miss our interview with Akkersdijk either.
