This year, the start of the school year probably means a return to real school. After an eternity of working from home, we’re here to help your big comeback to the office, classroom or boardroom go smoothly, from new notebooks to smart shoes.
Let’s be honest, one of the few bright spots to come out of the pandemic has been more freedom in how we work and where we do it. Doing office stuff at home has given us all more time for daily groceries and to spend time with the loved ones. It also reduced the painful pilgrimage from office to bed by approximately 99% over time.
Having said that, I missed the office. I missed the social side, the IRL interactions, the coffee maker, and the fact that I don’t have to yell on Zoom to suddenly log out for the seventeenth time in a day. Going back to those things will mean a compromise in time, of course, but I’m ready.
Now mentally prepared, I thought about the transition from pajamas all day to getting dressed and commuting again. It’s not going to be easy, but we took to the internet to put together some sort of survival kit for getting back to the daily grind.

Lucido compressible jacket Stone Island
If you don’t have one yet, a good packable jacket is more powerful than you might imagine. It’s the ultra-smart commuting tool that lets you change the climate, whether it’s a sweaty subway or heavy downpours on the street, in total comfort. As such, it is worth investing in a model that you will wear for years to come. The power of Stone Island’s textile innovation department translates into a resin-coated nylon canvas that also fits in a beautifully colored accessory.
adidas x Prada Luna Rossa 21
The sad reality is that floods and heavy rains are more and more frequent on the planet. We’ve seen images of New York and London subway stations underwater recently, and we’re going to have to start tailoring our clothes. Designed specifically for the Prada Luna Rossa sailing team, this collaboration with adidas features holes on the bottom for water drainage and a breathable upper.
Master & Dynamic Over Ear Headphones
Noise canceling technology is a boon when you are on the move. Seriously, if you’ve been working from home for a while, you might have forgotten how horrible other people’s conversations can be. No, Eric, I don’t want to hear about your dog’s hernia.
Arc’teryx Index 15 Backpack
Backpacks have struggled for a while – no one wants to remember their college days – but a greater desire for practical products has helped spin the fortunes for this humble accessory. If you want a serious option, Arc’teryx is still one of the best. This one is both super light and durable, which makes it perfect for commuting.
Grown Alchemist Antioxidant Serum
Pollution is a factor that is still often overlooked when it comes to deciding on a skin care regimen, but it is one of the most important, especially if you are traveling to town every day. This Grown Alchemist Antioxidant Serum, light enough for daily use, is rich in tripeptides and antioxidants to help reduce the effects of pollution and free radicals.
SIGG lunch box
I say goodbye to the brown bag and prepare a large suitcase for the Haute lunch box this year. There is great beauty in approaching daily rituals more carefully, and this box from SIGG will help you do that. Just try not to eat everything inside before you even get off the train.
SIGG x Highsnobiety water bottle
And a matching water bottle to keep you hydrated, naturally.
Coolmax WTAPS face mask
These things are not going anywhere, and rightly so. We can all do our part by continuing to wear a face mask when we travel. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier when they come with labels that we love like WTAPS.
Casteify UV Phone Sanitizer
Think about it, your phone is probably the dirtiest thing you come into direct contact with most days. Add to that the fact that it’s probably also the item you use the most, and I don’t really need to say more about this one.
