My Favorite Things

Igee Okafor, founder and editor in chief of Bond Official, identified the need for an online destination for men like himself, he notes, “with smart and ultramodern minds.” Through opinion pieces, interviews, and a podcast featuring a variety of perspectives, Okafor and his team showcase not only first-rate fashion and tastemakers, but also, he adds, inspiration about what it means to be a “courageous, liberated” gentleman. Okafor—a native of Lagos, Nigeria, who moved to N.Y.C. in 2013 to pursue a career in media—additionally oversees the lifestyle and menswear platform Very Igee Okafor. There, visitors can discover and shop a distilled version of its creator’s taste. Herewith, he offers up the items that have his attention this summer

Tumi

$1,095

19 Degree Aluminum Carry-On Suitcase

“The fluid-looking design got me interested and seeing how, through my travels, it sustained its shape has kept me really fond of it.”

Supergoop!

$34

Every. Single. Face Watery Lotion

“This summer, protecting your skin from sun damage is essential. I’ve found Supergoop’s Watery Lotion to be the lightest and easiest solution. The product settles into the skin so nicely and you’re left with no white cast. I like to reapply every three to five hours.”

Ruffino

$30

Ducale Chianti Classico Riserva

“I like to share this wine with friends on a cool summer night. It’s one-of-a-kind with notes of violet, cherry, cinnamon, and touches of tobacco. Complex yet lush and easy to enjoy with essential dining favorites like pasta.”

Tom Ford

$79

Tom Ford 002

“I was a fan of the first Tom Ford coffee table book and I am an even bigger fan of 002. The white cover stands out on any table and the written and visual storytelling makes for a great conversation starter when hosting guests.”

Diptyque

$40

Dishwashing Liquid with Orange Blossom

“I am a fan of scented products, and not too long ago Diptyque launched this dishwashing liquid with the most sustained and delicate orange blossom, mandarin, and basil scent. It makes doing dishes a lot more enjoyable.”

Diptyque

$40

Multi-Surface Vinegar Cleaner

“What I really enjoy about this multi-surface cleaner is that the recycled glass bottles are made to be reused. Scores for sustainability and functionality.”

8Greens

$78

Essential Greens Booster

“Greens are essential and I do my best to have my daily intake. I started off with the booster on days I forgot to eat my fruits or salads. Now, I do it all together. It’s made from real greens like spinach, kale, and barley grass and it tastes great.”

Frédéric Malle

$85

Portrait of a Lady Scent

“I originally experienced this fragrance on a friend of mine, who would wear it all the time. It was so signature to her and exuded such grace and sophistication. It was unlike anything I had ever smelled before. Sensual, yet demure and refined. This is what notes of rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and amber can do.”

Christian Louboutin

$595

Men’s Coolraoul Logo Flat Sandals

“I always choose relaxation. We all need simplistic footwear we can lounge around in and this is it. The color variation alongside the color is a great detail, and it can be paired with any neutral, matching sets for summer.”

Master & Dynamics x David Adjaye

$1,200

MA770 Wireless Speaker

“I have used this wireless speaker for the last two years. You’re able to connect it to your phone, Chromecast, or any other device that allows for Bluetooth connection. The clarity on the system is incredible and so is the bass and acoustics. I’m positive anyone could throw a large party with one of these and be pleasantly surprised.”
