The latest installment of Essentials focuses on Nick Stavrakakis, co-founder of C6, an Apple-focused bag and accessories brand. His minimalist design aesthetics, incredible attention to detail, and knowledge of high-end fabrics and materials were honed while working with fashion mavericks Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Evisu in Italy and Greece. In 2012, Stavrakakis launched C6 in London, a brand that takes its name from carbon – the building block of life. C6’s business model focuses on evolving with the constantly developing tech-centric world to deliver a range of products that are simple, functional and above all else, modern and beautiful.
For his Essentials, Stavrakakis sticks to a bare minimum of staple items, which acts as a commentary to his brand’s ethos. He includes accessories such as an Anderson’s Heritage Collection woven belt, a classic black COMME des GARÇONS wallet, and an IWC wristwatch noting that he idolizes each item’s high-quality make and understated appeal. To complete the list, Stavrakakis includes a Norse Projects beanie and Undefeated cap along with C6 laptop sleeve, iPad and iPhone case.
