FrontRunners: Men Only

  • The Editors

Man’s Room, the new accessories collection from 23-year-old Serbian designer Damjan Popovac (www.damjanpopovac.com), is as masculine as its name suggests. Take his Hand, a $7,470 back scratcher made of wood and 18-karat gold. Popovac says he made it "bony and skeletal, so it won’t appeal to women." His $11,470 ashtray, crafted from the same materials, has a glass base that can display an image, "so you can stub your cigar out on a politician of your choice." rel="nofollow" Popovac also has designed a condom box in two styles that might reflect his youthful optimism: Single, compartmentalized by months of the year, and Married, organized by days of the week.
